    I had a 45c that did it on demand so was wondering if it was common across the line.

    Oh yeah, you're correct. Smith never intended this to be a feature, hence the secondary slide release hold

I believe the reason they put it there was to prevent the slide auto releasing when a mag is slammed in. But it has so much force the left slide release is very stiff and I'm physically incapable of releasing the slide with the right one. Removing the little spring like I did didn't change the function of the gun at all, since the tab is so strong. The slide still won't auto slingshot and it's very difficult to release the slide.
    How did you remove the spring?

    I was fiddling with the M&P for a bit. I thought I could remove the "black cover" from the back, but no dice. That is the steel that reinforces the polymer frame.

    Did you just pry/pop it off from the front? I think I will cut a few coils off instead of remove it completely.

    I'm not sure you're referring to the correct spring. There are no coils. The spring I removed is attached to the slide catch assembly. It pulled out pretty easily. You can see it here:

    Ah - I thought you were referring to the spring loaded tab that holds up the 2.0's slide stop.

    So here is what I did for those that want to know - reliability pending - as I haven't shot it yet.

    I radius'd and polished the slide stop tab. Polished and rounded off the slide stop itself. And I am ordering a Frank Proctor 13# recoil spring, which should require less force to push down the slide stop. I kind of wished I just tried the new recoil spring first.

    I did say that I thought it would help if you removed that tab, but I haven't done it myself. It exerts way too much force.
