sweeper22 what kind of trigger pull did that glock have ? Stock glock has a 4.5, 5 to 5.5 lb trigger pull depending on model and a reset that can be felt and has a very short reset. The m&p's I have shoot where not at all a decent triggers. Kinda mushy with not easy to feel or hear reset and even though the pull weight is said to be the same 5lbs it sure does not feel very good. Guess you have tuned on yours or the glock is one of the NY triggers models.

a stock M&P pull is between 6.5 and 8 pounds will very light felt reset. that's why we M&P owners buy APEX kits to help fix the only flaw of the firearm

yep that was my impression of there triggers. Just not real consistent . I hate to have to buy a trigger kit just to get a respectable trigger. Guess thats why with mid and large stricker pistols I like glock. Just wish the grips were smaller over all.

I replaced the trigger spring (3 lb pull) SUPER EASY to do and cheap

the sights (had to have a professional do it)

and got the extended mag release (not that necessary)


I think that's about as close to perfect as you can get.
I don't believe in recoil spring upgrades unless someone can
tell otherwise.

Nice gun description but I prefer the steel spring guide rod because it's cheap and not plastic it's been proven under rapid fire the plastic spring rod will break first , after about 1000 rounds rapid fire... Metal just seem better for gun function not for recoil...

Anyone else want to vouch for this statement?

You might be right. I've heard a lot of talk about replacing the it with a steel rod. I've also heard a lot of talk about the plastic rod is fine and isn't a problem.

However, nobody is saying the steel rod is problem.

I'm of the camp that a lot of 1911s don't even have a full guide rod and operate w/o problems.

I guess better to error on the side of caution?
