MP40 with Apex trigger vs MP40 pro

Looking to get an MP40. Should I get the standard MP40 and put in an Apex trigger kit or get the MP40 pro with the enhanced factory trigger?

My experience, yours may vary...

I have a full size M&P 40, the trigger was OK, but when I put an Apex sear and ultimate sight block, it made a tremendous difference in how well I could shoot it.

I bought a M&P Pro Series CORE in 9mm, quite frankly the standard trigger it came with was virtually the same as the stock trigger in the 40, so the first thing I did was install the Apex sear and USB, the same thing I did to the standard 40. IMHO the Pro Series CORE trigger was the same as a standard.

For me, the reason to get the CORE was the ability to mount a red dot sight, which I did ASAP due to my aging eyes.

I have a M&P40 Pro. I ended up putting in the Apex Sear & USB. Much better than the stock Pro setup.

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

That's what I would do, especially if you plan on changing the sights. The stock trigger on a Pro Series can smooth out and lighten up with use, but it will never be as good as the Apex FSS Trigger Kit. Hope this helps!
