Not to be an sanity the link explains the two pretty well for what they are used for primarily.

I was really looking for an expansion on the description - someone with experience of one or the other.

I don't know enough to assess the 3.5# vs 5.0# trigger pull. I have fired a gun with a hair-trigger and it was pretty cool. I do not know what the trigger pull rating was on that gun. Perhaps in daily carry this would be dangerous. It seems 3.5# is still reasonable but I just don't know.

Anyone installed the 5.5# and wish they had the 3.5#?

What will the gun be used for? If its a duty or concealed carry piece (I know its a full sized but some people would make it work) I would personally get the heavier trigger. For range or target or competition use, the lighter trigger will work well.

Take I say with a grain of salt though, as all my guns have a stock trigger.

Thanks for the additional input.

On Edit - received this from S&W:

===
Subject: M&P 40 trigger

Dear Customer,

We do not sale a trigger kit, I believe Wolfe does but it would void the warranty on the gun.

If further assistance is required please reply accordingly.

Sincerely,

Michael DiFiore

A few months ago I was passing around that crap as well. I bought into the idea that gun modifications could increase your chances of going to jail. Then I was challenged with a post like this on a Facebook page. I went to find evidence where that was the case. After two days of searching I couldn't find anything.

I agree with the above completely. As long as your modifications are safe then this won't be an issue as long as it was a good shoot. If you get sent to jail, then it was because there were other questions. Not because you changed you grips, had a trigger job, changed your sights, etc.

Thanks to you and AA for posting your findings.

Urban Myths spread like wildfire. That's why Snopes.com is so busy But I do think a good (or bad) lawyer may bring these alterations if allowed into the discussion if they feel it will give their arguments any strength - right or wrong.

I did like one reply - might have been in this thread - "Well, I didn't want to miss and hit an unintended object/person in the background". Works for me.
