M&P 9mm

This past weekend I joined the M&P 9mm club (compact version). I haven’t had time to shoot it yet but I’ve already ordered the APEX replacement trigger. The stock trigger break is a little too violent. So far I’ve not managed to dry fire once without the front sight moving even while gripping it 20% harder.

    Seriously, wait for the Apex. Minutes to install (hardest part is hammering off the rear sight) and the difference is night and day.

    However… be prepared. Now that I’m all Apex’d up, every time I dry fire my Glock the front sight moves to a different zip code. You get used to the nice break 😉

    Apex trigger or the RAM?

    And good choice on walking away from .40 S&W

    9×19 is just a better choice!

    Welcome to the M&P club.

    I’ll be curious what sort of accuracy you’ll see. Myself and numerous others I know have seen terrible accuracy from the factory barrels (e.g. I was getting 6-8″ groups at 25 yards). Some guns are ok, others are not. It’s a crapshoot, so to speak.

    Those of us with problems have switched to KKM barrels with acceptable results. Still waiting for Apex’s barrel (designed by them, made by Bar-Sto).

  7. I would establish that it is in proper working order before I changed anything.

    It will be fine. No Dremel involved, I swear.

    Lo, the Dremel does call to you!

    It bids you to take your place amongst the bubbas!

    Dropping in the Apex was the best thing I’ve ever done to the M&P (I have the full size, the compact and the .22)

    Not only does the trigger break nicely, the feel of the reset is much better. Totally worth it. Smith should just ship their pistols with it installed.

    BTW.. The M&P .22 rates “just ok” in my book.. not exactly the same size as the 9 so the holster doesn’t fit. The thumb safety is wonky (tech term for “The axis of rotation is wrong..”) and spare mags are mostly out of stock.. Still.. It’s fun.
