Lol thanks for all the replies guys. Firearm works fine, I've put more rounds through it with no issue. Trigger is great. I trust it enough to have as my nightstand gun.

If you finish it off with the Apex DCAEK Kit, your M&P will be a whole lot better!!! The Apex Striker Plunger will take away the gritty trigger feeling.

I've seen many people post that if you shoot at least 1000rds +, the stock M&P trigger will be just as good as the Apex Trigger. Believe us all who have installed either the Apex DCAEK or AEK Kits, the stock M&P Trigger will NEVER be the same.

LOL....
I hear you beretta, i`ve not had the best of luck by returning to a place of business that didnt get it right the first time. Being that, its a gunsmith issue by the sounds of the complaint, the only reason i would EVER return to their place of shitty business, 1) to tell them they dont know what they`re doing 2) to get my refund.

Research is a powerful thing...
i`ve learned the hard way... i now get referrals & references before ANYONE touches ANYTHING i own. Funny how thats saved me a lot of grief AND money since practicing that method...lol.

A 1,000 rounds...???? LOL....highly unlikely to EVER compare to a APEX trigger system.
Sorry my friend, but a shitty trigger will never correct itself.

Respectfully, The instructions and youtube install video both say to partly assemble the trigger group and check for clearance if it is dragging a bit, they suggest that you use an emery board to gently remove the offending polymer equally from both sides of the trigger well until it clears the trigger. If the gunsmith did not trim enough material to "clear" that would be your grittiness right there.

Ah, it could simply be that I misinterpreted the use of the word "trimming." I was thinking "trimming to length", as in shortening the trigger bar or something, instead of lightly sanding the trigger hole in the frame. I hope that's it.

There are actually 2 spots that can cause the grittiness, As mentioned the Striker block and the other is the trigger arm that engages the striker block. When the slide is off the frame, its the part of the silver arm that sticks straight up...slide your finger across it and feel for anything other than smooth. If you feel any burr or anything, just slide a little fine sand paper across it and smooth of the burr.

Don't forget to check/renove the burs from the striker block channel.

If the gun is new enough to have the newer style slide stop assembly (has the pad on the right side to improve the audible reset), polish the pad and where it contacts the trigger bar.
