Was recently in the market for a high capacity 9mm for home defense. Found a GREAT deal on an M&P full size, 17 round at Academy. After getting it home and stripping for cleaning, I noticed I didn't get the standard S&W packaging...no lock, no spent test round, the serial number is laser etched on the slide and the barrel along with US POL and a 16 digit code. The barrel was really dirty. I've put a couple hundred rounds through it with no problems. I'm just curious.

What model did you get? Is it one with an internal lock? Many manufacturers no longer ship a pistol with a spent case, as no states require it anymore.

And no, you can't take it back.

Academy won't resell it.. you may have not received the extras, but I imagine the barrel is dirty from test firing at the factory.

No extras explains the good price. Any ideas about the extra etching?

I Think Smith and Wesson mixed up their Home shopping network and academy shipments.

Go back to Frisco, Buzz. Where I come from, if you can't help...butt out.

My M&P Shield doesn't have anything like that. I would contact Smith & Wesson and ask them. Is the serial number stamped on the frame?
