On the M&P trigger


the owner of Apex Tactical triggers wouldnít be driving around in a Ferrari 458 Italia if the M&Pís trigger had one-tenth of the smoothness of the Italian sports carís go-pedal.

The issue with the M&P factory trigger isn’t its smoothness. Its as smooth as other polymer-framed, striker-fired pistols. The issue is it’s lack of a distinct feeling reset. At gun school, Tom Givens said the M&P trigger is what happens when engineers design triggers. And I laughed because I had an M&P and this was the section in the class on shooting on reset. Fortunately, there’s an easy fix.

    Point taken. Text amended.

    You can get the RAM directly from Apex much cheaper than the Amazon price. $22 and change, just bought two of ’em.

    To paraphrase the Gipper, it’s not the distinct felt reset you don’t have that’s the problem. It’s the distinct felt reset that’s not so.

  4. Canthros Says:

    As regards letting engineers design things, that probably means the requirements were insufficiently specific.

    I’ve fired Stock M+Ps, and I’ve fired Keads’ Apex Modified M+P. MUCH better with the Apex.

    But we’ve been dealing with Bad Triggers for Decades because of the Lawyers. Colt Series 80, Glock’s New York Trigger, it goes on and on.

    The Engineers have to design to the Bosses wishes, and if the Boss is afraid to be sued because “Little Johnny MIGHT grab Daddy’s Gun and shoot his kid sister,” then we have to put up with Factory Triggers that suck.

    Thank God for the After-Market.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
