Got mine to the range yesterday for the first time and noticed a similar issue. Put 70 rounds through it and it shot well at 10 yards from a defensive posture and while moving in retreat, but when I toed the line and shot at 2" circle from the same distance I only put 2/10 shots on the dot, shooting 1/2 silhouettes for the other shots no issue. I think I am use to the full size 9mm with my upgrades and I was anticipating the recoil prior to my shot because 8/10 were 3-4" low at 6 o'clock. OP please update if you find out the issue I am interested.

Will do. I have a custom Crossbreed holster and 4 mags. The pistol feels great and looks great. Really trying to keep this one especially with the climate here in MD.

Mine shoots low like Jackson923 mentioned. This is the only one that I have issues with (XD45, Sig 229 9MM and Glock 21SF).

For you guys having accuracy problems, try some different ammo. I have noticed lately that brands that I thought were good to go now seem to have reliability and accuracy problems. Maybe it is a sign of the times.

My M&P40c, one of my carry guns, will shoot 1 inch groups from the bench at 20 yards using my handloads. White box stuff gives me three inch groups and blazer copper washed stuff is worse. I just shot the same test in a friends Sign229 (1982 US PX Germany) and it gave similar results so I know it is not just my gun.

As an aside, I carried a 229 for some years and it never had the trigger my buds has stock out to box. I wonder if the European guns didn't get the lawyer mods that ours do.

I know my M&P9 has accuracy changes with different weight ammo. It likes 115gr the best. The heavier I get, the wider my shot groups are. I suppose it could be me, but it is less accurate with heavier rounds.

.40 cal ammo

Since I got rid of the only .40cal that I owned, now looking to sell the ammo. I have Winchester White Box 165Gr, Winchester Ranger Bonded JHP, Winchester PDX1 180gr, Remington UMC 180gr and a couple of others to sell. Anyone interested let me know and we can work something out.

I was going to suggest trying different grip backs as that made a HUGE difference for me, but too late now I see.

I actually tried that also. I liked how it felt in my hand, but it was just too snappy. One could say all compacts are snappy, but I have subcompacts with less recoil. I pulled it apart and found nothing wrong with the spring or barrel. I tried different rounds as well as backstraps. Maybe I got one made on a Monday or a Friday. Whatever the case, I used the proceeds for a .308 bolt rifle with a threaded, 5R barrel.
