Default Brought the M&P .40 home

So the M&P .40 I ordered came in today. I had grabbed a few different loads to try. May get out this weekend to try it out.

Shot 350 in mine last week, no issues, not fan of trigger but I will probably be able to get used to it, have problem with spending $150 bucks on trigger in gun I just bought for $500

I did a little polishing here and there and like it better now. I can get used to it. Just different than the consistent stacking of a Glock, which is the next closest trigger to the M&p that I have a lot of time with.

What exactly did you polish on it? I've put a few hundred rounds through mine and the thing is still terrible. I still plan on buying the Apex trigger once I have the funds, but for now I'd like it to be a bit better.

Same Thing with me. I bought the M&P compact 40 as a carry gun, its not terrible but its definitely not one of my 1911's. I did try the 15 rd magpul mag in mine as a cheapout way of extending the grip(large hands).

Have you found a good carry holster for this thing yet? everything I tried at Cabelas was aukward to say the least.

Get a full size mag from SW and buy one of the little slip covers for it (i'm not sure what exactly they're called). My buddy did that and it looks good. It feels really good too.

As far as holsters go, I have no idea. I'm not allowed to carry

Surfaces of the sear that engage the trigger bar. The area of the trigger bar that slides along the sear. The surfaces of the trigger bar that push up the striker block. Done carefully with fine gunsmith polishing stone, and then polished with some jewelers rouge and a dremel polishing wheel. Very little at all. Very careful about not changeling any angles or geometry at this time. Left the sear/striker engagement surfaces alone. May consider polishing the sear block angle and even rounding it a bit to get rid of the couple of the clunks toward the end of the pull. Pretty sure that is all the apex sear block has different than stock.

I am using an IWB and OWB Galco leather holsters and have been happy
