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.

Am confused, how about I send my gun to you and you so it for me??

There are a few YouTube videos out there that would explain the parts and surfaces I'm talking about. Also, it seems the current M&P pistols already have some slightly improved parts from the factory, compared to some of the early ones. So some of those parts on mine only required minor polish or smithing.

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

I picked up a holster from Old Faithful holsters. I bought the one that was partially assembled. It ran me $40 and I love it! I hardly notice my M&P 9c is even there. Finishing the assembly was a breeze. The holster looks identical to the Crossbreed.

Good! Glad you found it. They are very adjustable too. I personally like my front hook way up and the back down so it tilts my 9c into my body a bit. Still easy to draw and makes it much more concealed. They send you extra parts as well in case you loose some. I have taken advantage of this already as well. Enjoy!
