Default Apex Trigger?

Love my 2 M&P's but not there trigger. All I want to do its take away the over travel and lighten the trigger pull a bit. Will polishing all the necessary contact points fix this, or do I need to invest in the Apex DAECK?

IMO, it depends. if this is a carry pistol, then no i don't suggest making any trigger modifications. not on any legal basis, but simply because of safety issue. if strictly a range gun, then by all means, go for it and make it more to your liking.

pesronally, for a carry or SD/HD pistol if the trigger was not up to my liking, i would possibly either get use to it, or look at another pistol with a trigger more to my liking.

others may disagree with my opinions, but this is whati happen to believe and suggest.

Polishing won't do what you want and if done wrong can make your gun extremely dangerous. If you're going to do the apex kit, go with the duty/carry kit.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Apex trigger is awesome. It's got a glock feel to it. And I love glocks. If u are doing it for your carry gun. I recommend the sheild. It has a much nicer trigger. Iv grown attached to it. Just my $.02

I have an M&P shield and the trigger, for me, is good enough as is and I would not change it.

My question is....I also have an M&P Pro Series w/ 5.25 bbl and I find the trigger to be quite good...better than my Glock 35 and Springfield XDm with 5.25" bbl....is the stock trigger on the Pro series different than a standard M&P or is it just that it suits me better?

Im not sure honestly a trigger pull gauge could tell u the best cause if im not mistaken the pro series is for competition just like the xds the trigger pull is softer and faster reset

I have the Apex trigger in both of my M&P's 9 and 45. They made a huge difference in accuracy. They are well worth the money and very easy to install.

Polishing won't do anything for the over travel and as mountainman stated, if done wrong could really screw things up. I personally would take it to a trusted gun smith and see what he/she suggests. My son put a Apex trigger kit in his SDVE and it now has a better trigger than either of our M&P's.

I have the duty/carry in my M&P9. If you are reducing that take up and reducing the trigger weight makes it much closer to a single action and therefore would be more inclined to need the use of a manual safety to reduce the risk of a negligent discharge. This would be ok for a range only gun but for carry I would shy away.

The duty/carry leaves that take up meaning you must make a purposeful motion on the trigger to engage it. This means you can still carry safely without the need for the manual safety.
