Cleaning A Smith & Wesson M&P




What do you think about this video?

acs197: Great video! I had a failure to extract while at the range the other day. Just 1 out of 100 rounds. New pistol and I did basic cleaning and lubrication the day I bought it. I really want to pin down the cause of the failure :(

Poorboymz31: Newb question here, but in the video you lubed the inside of the barrel, but the actual M&P 9mm manual doesn't mention that. Is it absolutely necessary? Are there any positives or negatives? Thanks in advance! 

Max Carter: Love good videos with good sound quality. thumbs up 

Shant B: quality video from a normal sounding guy, not a wacko trying to get his own tv show.

Theo Phorus: Thanks, very clear

Michael Mudry: Awesome video. I just bought a m&p 9mm pro series and have not fired it yet. I really want to understand the fundamentals of taking care of it first and this video did just that. Tganks!

LPANDTHEREBELS: Awesome video and sound quality! One thing I wanted to mention (whether someone else has mentioned it before me or not) is that you don't have to use the lever inside of magazine well. You can just pull the trigger and it releases the sear for the slide to come off. Some people don't like this, because they think it harms the gun, but I have two S&W's and nothing has changed for mine. Again, awesome video!

okhomestead: Well done!

Shawn Smith: Thank you! First time gun owner and this video was very helpful.

Sergio Rodiguez: Great video, thanks for the tips on cleaning my new toy! 

Nathan Sharlaw: You can never clean a gun too much, it'll only last longer. Same thing goes for your vehicle.

Randy Chavez: Not only a lot of grease, but too much chemicals all around lol. I have this same gun and all I use to clean it are 3 q tips dipped in rubbing(isopropyl) alcohol plus a tiny coat of motor oil on the slides

mediamst: in fact holy COW that gun is packed with greese!

Bill Kilgore: don't need gloves with ballistol. Its good for your hands. Great antiseptic!!! non toxic. I love the stuff. you don't need gun oil either. There's plenty of ballistol left after you wipe it down with a silicone rag. Grease on the contact points is good but NO need to add the extra gun oil. If fact its too much,

Oz Mazzetta: way too much oil and grease. Other wise, nice presentation Buddhas

SJ Norris: Thanks for sharing, i will be using your video while i clean my mp for the first time! great video very easy to follow and short and easy. cheers

mediamst: Holy cow. I never clean this well!

WillyBucks22: very good video. great instructions to follow

Chris H: Great video. Best I've seen on this topic for this pistol. Well done.

Vitus Apollo: Coming from a first time owner, thanks so much for the excellent video! I must say, of all the cleaning tutorials I've seen on YouTube, yours is the only one which has really made me feel the gun was thoroughly cleaned. For those who are looking for the products in this video I've compiled a list of those I could find from Amazon: http://amzn.com/w/2X0MLDCAEBSUU

Kenn Hiser: Ditto what Jeff said below....very helpful. Thanks

boscocfh: Just bought this gun. Its my first gun purchase do i need to clean it before i shoot it for the first time?

cvang234: eNosArmory - Does your M&P have that trigger noise? Mine goes away when the slide is pulled back and locked. But appears to come up again when the slide is closed. I do not want to do any polishing of any sort or buy aftermarket parts to place since I am new to shooting and do not have the confidence of taking the trigger assembly appart. I could send it back to Smith but just wanted a response from other M&P owners.

870dukr: Can you tell me where you got the little swabs? I've been looking for them but cannot seem to locate a supplier. Thank you and thanks for the video.

Riskmangler: What does the gun grease do that the lubricant doesn't? Also, how often do you recommend such a thorough cleaning?

Greensragontv: It was extremely helpfull and good camera

kmoirkne: @eNosArmory If you would like to send me message offline, I would be more than happy to send you out some samples to review.

levelwu: Great job on editing the video - no fluff or chatter. Thanks for featuring the alternative to cotton swabs, I discovered a new tool today :)

eNosArmory: @GorillaBearENT Glad to hear... thanks for watching!

eNosArmory: @arolpaz It was part of a kit I bought at Radio Shack.... I don't exactly remember the kit.

nolanosam: Let me get a sample!

ch2martin: Great video, always nice to see something done properly before I give it a shot.

AmericanPatriot: I just bought my first gun, also and M&P 9mm and I was wondering if it is safe to use CLP the same way you used the balistol. I can't find balistol anywhere near me

dmowilliams: Very informative, Im picking mine up tomorrow and will definetly be using this as a guide. Thanks for taking the time!

Leprechaun79: I use "Break Free" for everything. You should give it a shot. It is the only cleaner/lubricant that I use.

1timby: Every used 99% Iso Alcohol for bulk cleaning? Any thoughts. Great Vid Thanks

DojangRat: I just got done cleaning a gun for the first time in my life. Thanks for this video it was a huge help!

emgory: Thanks. Perfect!

Carlos Ruiz: Where did you get those tools??

incrediblefiction: Just used this video as a reference for my first time cleaning my new M&P 9. I used all Hoppe's products in place of Ballistol but clean is clean. Oh you might have mentioned the silicon rag will make the gun really slick LOL. I thought I spilled cleaner on it ;) Thanks again!

kcchiefs9690: Thanks for the video! I bought the .40 S&W version but this is by far the best M&P video out there!

TheNomdeguerre: I don't think the other lubricants will play well with Ballistol, but I can understand why you want to put them on. I did like a lot of your tool suggestions. The cup and reuseable polymer q-tips make a lot of sense.

Lupo B: Great Video!!!🔫 Thanks

eNosArmory: I have a can! I actually used it for a while before switching to Balistol.

Tara Stam: I used your tutorial to help me clean my m&p shield 9mm for the first time. I don't know if I have done something wrong or not seated it correctly but the slide will not fully return when I have ammo in the clip/chamber. It is 1-2 mm from fully returned. It returns fine with no ammo in the gun. Any suggestions?

rmskibum: SUPER SUPER cleaning video. Thanks for the effort to help us out. I JUST purchased the same handgun, and am wanting to clean it before taking it to the range. Could I trouble you to write a list of all the accessories/tools/chemicals etc you personally use to clean this gun? Thanks a million

Johnnygrundg3: Excellent cleaning vid!!....i own the M&P 40 cal,found your cleaning methods very usefull!!...Good Shooting!

KrisstaSOT: I just wanted to say thank you for this video! It is so informative, even for a newbie like me. :)

eNosArmory: Swab-its

gsoto3i44: Good stuff
