Default considering buying a m&p 9mm

I'm wondering what everyone thinks I need a new 9mm pistol. I'm between glock 19 and a m&p 9mm. I have a glock 23 so I already know that I like the glock was just thinking of trying somthing diffrent.

Love the M&P series. Bought my wife an M&P9 full sized, shot it, fell in love, bought myself a 9c, shot it, fell in love again, bought my mom-in-law a full sized for her birthday.

I personally don't like Glock. I respect it for being one of the firsts in good polymer pistols, but nowadays there's more options out there.

Yea I like my glock because its simple and the trigger is nice. Kinda dislike the m&p trigger but I think I could fix it. I like the way the m&p feels though. I'm looking at the fullsize the 9c seems a tad to small for what I want. I can get the m&p for $479 and another glock for $499.

I've heard great things about the Apex trigger kits. I haven't experienced it yet. My only problem with the M&P trigger is the reset.

Don't judge it on dry-firing. It feels alot different when actually shooting. My wife's is used, was a rental. Mine is new, about 100ish rounds through it. Her trigger is much nicer than mine.

I have the Shield 40 and the 40c and they are both excellent! They do have some serious recoil, but very nice shooters!

Default M&P 9mm

If you go with the Pro Series it will have the APEX trigger spring kit in it out of the box. I have one and I LOVE it !!!! Accurate SOB

Try it. If you don't like it, sell it.

Very much like you, Rob1990, I like the feel of the M&P but like the Glock trigger better. My M&P .40 has 3 distinct clicks and clunks along the trigger pull, before let off. The reset isn't as distinct as the Glock, but the latest M&Ps are better than the first ones out there.

With regard to the Apex trigger, just realize that for the $20 cheaper price than the Glock, you will spend over $100 to get a really nice trigger in the M&P.

With that all said, I'm getting better with my M&P in stock form. I have polished some parts lightly. I think the striker block, safety plunger is probably one of the biggest offending parts in creating the crunchy feel of the M&P trigger, due to the shoulder angles, and amount if straight wa exposed outside of the plunger hole. This means the trigger bar can hits the straight wall, then the shoulder, then the top, before allowing the striker to release. A rounded striker block would fix this.
