M&P Shield Pre-order
 
Is Turners still taking preorders for the M&P Shield for $399.99?

gunslinger001 09-08-2012 11:45 AM

yes :D

cnj 09-11-2012 7:59 PM

Anyone know for how much longer?

monk 09-14-2012 2:19 PM

I just called the Pasadena store and the guy told me sometime around the end of the month since the pistol is coming in mid-October.

Update: got a call from Turners about my Shield I had preordered, their s&w rep said they are delaying shipments of the Cali legal shields until December :(

I just called Pasadena today and was told November. This sucks man :(.

It's like my MP22 from S&W. Ordered it in early August and now they're telling me end of November. So I went into Turner's and rolled over the payment to lever action rifle instead.

Called up EBR Works and bought a MP22 the next day that they actually had in stock. Can't believe I've been waiting almost 3 months and it's as easy as calling another dealer and getting it the next day.

Call EBR Works, they might be able to get it a little quicker. Great Dealer

When is Turners going to do the pre-orders on the SW Shield in 40SW?

I heard S&W isn't going to make a CA version in .40 Cal.

Yeah, there's nothing on the web site about a .40 in the works for CA.

emmzel 10-29-2012 7:10 PM

It just just got approved as of 09/10/12.

The model approved is M&P40 Shield SKU 187020 / Stainless Steel; Polymer.

Look at the CA approved roster of handguns.

ikeo 10-30-2012 12:06 AM

I preordered as well.. it is very frustrating when other dealers have items in stock and turners does not. Not even a mention of it to customers who have already paid, instead I have to call to find out about the delay vs. them calling customers who have already been charged and informing them of changes to the purchase.

This isn't Turner's fault. And who has these in stock anyway? I've been looking for months!

keith1911 10-30-2012 9:35 AM

ikeo What dealers have them in stock? I haven't been able to find one in SoCal. I have one of the 9mm's pre-ordered from Turners but haven't heard anything yet.

ElDub1950 10-30-2012 9:58 AM

I'm eager to see what comes of this .. lots of conflicting info.

S&W web site still says they will be in CA in Nov. and still says nothing about the .40 version.

The posts here say the 9mm has been delayed till Dec.
The CA approved roster show the .40 is approved.

S&W is doing a poor job of keeping us advised of what is really going on.

Anyone have news on the Turner's M&P Shield preorder?

I fully paid for the Shield, but was really hoping to see it in October, but today's the last day.

If it's not here, then can I get a full refund for a gun that's hasn't been delivered as advertise. I might just shell out to get the non-CA Shield if I can find one.

thanks

IIRC their policy says that you can get a full refund since you haven't DROS'd anything. Once you DROS they require a restocking fee.

Thank you.

I would prefer to buy it at Turner's, but would like an honest time of arrival so I could make a decision.

ifilef 10-31-2012 1:42 PM

What does the 9mm come with? How many mags and what is capacity of each mag?

Thanks for answer and the link.

Also wondering if the thumb safety can be moved to the right side, and whether the mag release can be moved over to right side, for left-handed shooters?

viet4lifeOC 10-31-2012 2:01 PM

Just spoke to a manager at Turner's Fountain Valley.

He said S&W will start producing the Shield in December and expect to receive the Shields in January 2013.

Argh :(

ikeo 10-31-2012 5:17 PM

@keith and Arkin - my apologies, I was not talking about the shield... I had preordered another item and I'm in the same boat.

no and no.

I wanted to switch the mag release but the cutout is different on the right, so it can't be inserted that way... the safety is just a no go all together.

I suppose you could alter/modify/notch the mag release opening and try to make it work, but I wouldn't.

keith1911 11-01-2012 8:19 AM

ikeo No problem, I've been looking for one and calling some other shops but none can get any so If someone knew of a place I was going to check them out.

saber 11-20-2012 4:13 PM

Does anyone know if the pre-order is still open?

Ricky-Ray 11-20-2012 5:30 PM

I was at the Pasadena store on Sunday and the sign was still up saying taking pre orders.

gr8dragon88 12-02-2012 9:54 AM

I'm told Turner's wont' be getting these until June 2013...

LoL WTF?

Might as well start looking for those SSEs!

ElDub1950 12-02-2012 10:40 AM

Beginning to seem like it will be 2014 before we can expect to find them on the shelf for the general public. It will take more than 6 months for LGSs to fill backorders :(

I haven't checked ... are these readily available at most places to be SSEd? Or is there a long wait even for that?

We might as well start a rumor that Glock will have their single stack 9mm model available in 2013. If we spread the rumor enough, maybe Glock will do it :)

Gosh! Like we all haven't learned our lesson the last time from that KSG debacle.:rolleyes:

SemperFlexibus 12-02-2012 9:57 PM

Keltec is having a major production problem. They are not shipping much firearms at all, let alone KSG which has issues.

http://rivrdog.typepad.com/straight_...c-cnc-inc.html

S&W is going to start manufacture CA version of the Shield this month and is a much larger company than Keltec.

Good things come to those who wait...

1st2fight 12-03-2012 1:23 PM

i've been looking for a keltec sub2000 and it's almost impossible unless i'm going to pay double plus import fees...

someone should make keltec an offer to buy them out...

Hence no need to throw money out there for something that doesn't exist yet. I don't mind waiting because I don't care to be first one to have it.

Like you said, S&W is a much larger company, so there should be no doubt that they'll eventually deliver. There will be plenty after the first deliveries and maybe even some sales to maintain interest throughout the end of next year.

slowxturtle 12-17-2012 2:10 PM

Are they still taking pre-orders for the Shield? I would be going to Pasadena.

ifilef 12-17-2012 3:38 PM

As a left-handed shooter, and already owner of a few 9mm, including one containing an ambidextrous mag release and thumb safety, which I enjoy, I can not find any justifiable reason for getting one of these, other than to serve as a 'luxury' or 'impulse buy' with an inordinate waiting period.

i asked today at the torrance store and, no, they are not taking anymore pre-orders. :(

slowxturtle 12-24-2012 8:45 PM

They were at the Pasadena store last week when I checked in person but I decided to pass because the delivery date was unknown.

keith1911 01-08-2013 12:44 PM

Well I just got an email from Turner's head buyer and the word is now we might see them by April. This is complete crap in my opinion and S&W should be ashamed of themselves and their poor customer service. They have introduced and delivered new M&P models since our order has been taken.
