Trigger pull weight on M&P Pro

I just purchased a new M&P 9mm Pro, and installed an Apex USB, RAM and Apex hard sear. The factory trigger pull out of the box was just over 6 lbs, and after installing the Apex parts, the trigger pull is just over 5 lbs.

I would like to reduce the trigger pull to 4-4.5 lbs. but not exactly sure of the best way to do this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Install the safety plunger spring and the sear spring from Apex.

The Competition Kit has the lighter springs. Call Apex directly. They will fix you up with the perfect combo for the feel you want.

I actually think I'm going to order the Competition AEK. It seems to have what I want and seems to have great reviews. And it's IDPA SSP friendly from what I understand.

IDPA/SSP and USPSA/Production legal.

Is the trigger pull the same on the the Pro 9 and .40? I thought the trigger pull was supposed to be about 5 to 5.5 lbs on the Pro's. At least thats what I was told when I bought them.

This is very true. Although I haven't gotten into USPSA yet. I'm told once I start I won't want to go back to IDPA!?

I found the trigger on my PRO 40 5" to be about the spec weight (compared to my duty 40 FS's 8lbs trigger), the PRO was so gritty and hadn't smoothed out by 500 rounds so I put in a APEX USB. Strange that it's a high end model, but my duty FS had a smooth trigger from day one.

Just shot my M&P9 Pro for the first time yesterday. I have the Apex competition spring kit, hard sear and RAM. Not sure what the trigger pull weight is, but a lot less than my M&P9 FS(and noticeably lighter than the stock trigger from the Pro with dry firing). Very nice shooting gun. Can't wait to shoot it in a match and see how it does compared to my FS.

Which Apex springs did you use?

That's the trigger pull weight I'm looking for. I also have an M&P Pro and I'm wondering which Apex parts to put in. So far, I've bought the USB and the Hard Sear. Did you also install the trigger return spring, the sear plunger spring and the striker spring of the competition kit?

If you guys want more flexibility with your trigger weights you should be buying the trigger kits, not all the individual parts. With the Competition kit you can go anywhere from just over 2 lbs. to 5 lbs., DCAEK can be set anywhere from 4 lbs. (sometimes a little lower) to just over 6 lbs.

Trigger pull weight on M&P Pro

I have the competition kit in my 9mm FS and the trigger pull measures at about 2 lbs 8 oz with good feel and no accidental doubles, and no sear flutter.

It's too late for me to buy the whole kit because I already have the sear and the USB. Given your information, I plan to buy the competition spring kit and mix and combine them until I achieve my desired trigger pull weight. Thank you KRWeiss.

You're quite welcome. If this is for a defensive pistol, I wouldn't recommend putting the CompAEK Trigger Return Spring in there. Then again, I wouldn't recommend the CompAEK for a carry gun anyway.
