I was thinking like dual rears and single front lol. But you think they're worth the money compared to standard trijicons?

Hey guys. I have a M&P 40 that I installed the APEX DCAEK and the polymer trigger. It's definitely way better. But my gun was manufactured in 2011 and S&W has improved the sear and striker since then. All that is needed to make the trigger really awesome on the newer guns is to polish the internal metal parts that are metal on metal. I did that on my sons 9mm M&P and my friends 40. It's honestly as good as the Apex trigger now.
There is a YouTube video that shows a guy polishing the parts. Search M&P DIY trigger job.
No need to file the sear on the newer guns though.

I did intend on breaking down the m&p when I get it and having my sw40ve next to it to compare them internally as well as polish some things up after a little research. What actual abrasive material did you use to polish?

I used 3M 3000 grit foam backed sandpaper and a Dremel buffer with a very fine polishing compound.

Anyone have an opinion on if the range kits are worth it? Or what they go for?

Sorry, just saw your question about range kits...I think they are a great value depending on what you pay for them. I saw one online for $508 or something. As hard as it is to find magazines getting three in the kit is a good thing. I have a upula loader and it's good to have when you are doing a lot of shooting. The blade tech holsters are good from what i've heard. (I don't own one), Nice case, Dual magazine holder. I would have bought one when I bought my M&P 40 if the gun shop would have had one.
