Looks like getting an M&P is shelved.  Getting a Glock 10mm instead.  20SF.

Are you sure you want a 10mm?  A couple of weeks ago I was looking for ammo at a good sized gun store.  They had lots of 9mm, .40 and .45, but no 10mm.

I have the M&P 9c and like it a lot.  The Apex trigger sounds good.

I absolutely love my M&P 9mm. I look at it this way. Glock sights suck and the M&P trigger sucks. Either way you will spend around $100 after the purchase to make it right. Apex Tactical DCAEK is what Smith should be putting in these pistols from the factory. It is night an day difference with the trigger.

Hey! I'm glad you're loving that M&P9. I'm enjoying the M&P40 Compact you traded me for it. :)

Well I'm late to the game but I will say the M&P 9 I have has been flawless with almost 1500 rounds through it.  The trigger has smoothed out and I just can't get enough of it!

I know people say this, but those 1500 rounds have had ZERO FTEs, FTFs.  I've ran wolf, Tula, ficocci, pmc, Winchester, remington and reloads through it. It just goes boom.

It's accurate, light and feels right. Made in the USA too.

We had an M&P come in for Cerakote. Didn't like them before dealing with this one. It's a decent system. I hated the triggers but after playing with this one, while working on it, I am beginning to see the magic behind it. It's really not a trigger you can slap...it almost forces you to squeeze it.

It is closer to a double action than a Glock or XD.  I tweaked mine a little and now it is nice and smooth.

The APEX FSS kit will give the M&P a crisper "single action" break if that is what you are looking for.

M&P
« Reply #21 on: January 29, 2013, 12:37:02 AM »
Over the last six months I have been installing Apex Tactical sears and striker blocks in all the M&Ps in the family. Since I did them separately I can tell you that at a bare minimum every M&P owner should install the USB (ultimate striker block). It took all the grittiness out of the trigger travel, which was what bugged me the most about the factory trigger.

Replacing the sear and sear spring changed the trigger geometry (break point and reset position), and lightened the pull weight about one pound.  All of my triggers measure 4 pounds, which I am very happy with.

Now if I could just find a Shield in .40 at a reasonable price........

I own bought a Glock 19 and a M&P 9, both great guns and I have had no problems with the trigger on either weapon.   I have been known to take both out to the west desert and been able to hit the state of Utah  with every shot  :)

Kinda like carpet bombing.  Very precise.  Every bomb dropped hits the planet Earth.  Given the size of the universe, that is truly an amazingly small target.
