    M&P guys with APEX trigger kits

    I've been looking at their kits for a while and wanting to get one for my MP9compact. I do carry it, and after dry firing my friends with the competition kit (with new trigger and all) I wanted to do mine.

    Giving they say don't use the competition trigger kit if you carry, how many do? I would like the pull to be around 4.5 lbs. If I use the kit and the pull is too light can I put stock spring to make the trigger pull heavier? If so which spring?

    My MP9 Pro is getting the competition trigger kit but I don't carry it so it is not a concern.


    Thanks!

    Hey man,

    I think you had PM'd. I'm sorry if you did and I didn't get back to you. I run the trigger kit in one of my M&Ps and I carry it occasionally. I usually carry a Glock 17 or an M&P 9 with the DCAEK kit and RAM.

    I'm not sure if it'll work with the thumb safety or not, but if I continue to carry that one, I'll likely put the thumb safety back in. The trigger feels extremely nice compared to a factory M&P.

    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~ Paul Howe

    I have four M&Ps with the FSS and trigger kits in all of them.
    I just ran the 9MM FS in a class for one day. No issues with lighter triggers (within reason) for me. The gun has a thumb safety, but, with or without a safety, I am the safety. The M&P with FSS, a Walther PPQ or a Glock with a 3.5 pound trigger are all as safe as the operator as far as I am concerned.

    I personally prefer the extra level of safety that a thumb safety allows but I can and have lived without it.

    Do what I do. Go with the DCAEK, get our Polish option and then buy the competition striker spring. This will give you a trigger between 4LBS-4.5LBS.

    There seems to be a little variation between pistols, but here is my typical weights with various Apex configurations:

    1) FSST with Apex trigger spring: 4 lbs with essentially zero uptake.
    2) DCAEK with factory trigger spring: 3.5 lbs
    3) DCAEK with Apex trigger Spring: 5 lbs.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    I was looking at the whole trigger sear/ram package I liked the trigger more. I find my self not pushing the trigger sometimes right and the bottom of the trigger safety is getting caught on the frame. I'm a dumbass.

    DCAEK is just the spring kit correct? Why would you want to up the trigger LBS to 5lbs. using the apex trigger springs?
