1963 was the year i was born, Thank You for serving our great Country, and enjoy that M&P
I picked up a Blade Tech OWB from Amazon, made for the M&P Pro 5 inch, it also has the M&P logo plus Smith & Wesson molded on the front of the holster. 1963 is the year you were born? I am old.

Thank you my friend, I'm an old fossil so when it comes to taking pictures and posting them on line is somewhat of a challenge for me.

Awwww thats nice of you to say that... Dont see to many these days respecting us old farts.
I hear what your saying, i`m looking back into these M2.0`s... i didnt care for the 2 i had ordered, next customers behind me bought them. When i come across one with a trigger i can deal with, you can bet it will be coming home with me. I`m very picky about triggers... i`m sure i`ll find a decent one soon.

Nice avatar buddy... i still own a few old mopar muscle cars. (60`s & 70`s)
I dont drive them much anymore, cause i get in trouble every time i do...lol.
The young copper`s dont like old people around here... they act like military newbie`s.

PaPow, that is awesome those old Mopars are some good ole American muscle. I have owned my 68 Chevelle SS 396 since 1983 i love the ole car someday will hand it down to my son, i hear you about the cops they just don't appreciate the old powerhouses of the 60s.

I also understand about the trigger may as well keep looking for one that has the break you want, i own mostly 1911s those triggers are just great, hard to find a striker fired pistol with that crisp of a break. Carried and shot my Glock for so long guess i have just gotten used to the polymer gun triggers.

It is kind of bad you buy a new pistol and have to buy 100$ worth of Apex parts to get a decent trigger.

You are welcome.

I have to say that yours is the first de-safetied M&P in FDE with the proper plug colors... Good job!

I thought for sure they would send my the inserts that are a little darker than my pistol. Very satisfied. It might just me my imagination but the trigger pull feels a little lighter.

It is kind of bad you buy a new pistol and have to buy 100$ worth of Apex parts to get a decent trigger.
I can tell you with 100% certainty that the new M&P m2.0 does not need to have any Apex parts to have one of the best polymer-gun triggers, bar none. I have built 1911's from scratch and have Apex'd many M&Ps, as well as having done trigger jobs on various makes and models. So I do know a thing or two about triggers and great triggers. Having said that, I can state with confidence that the M&P m2.0 has a sear that looks like a blend of Apex and Performance Center sears, and the only thing required to make a world-class trigger (for a striker-fired pistol), is to know how to polish and shape the dog leg of the striker.

(For the sake of liability, I will not do a full Burwell trigger mod manual. I will only say that if you understand a 1911 hammer to sear engagement, and how to make the trigger lighter, then the sear to striker dog-leg engagement is not too far off.)

My new M&P40 m2.0 has a super crisp 3.7 lb trigger, which is down from the original 5+ pounds, with nearly zero over-travel. I could go lighter, but safety is always a top priority for me and will err on that side. Getting to 3.7 lbs took zero dollars and just a little trigger know-how. BTW - This approach to a M&P trigger job was not available on the original M&P, but it was always a part of perfecting an Apex or P.C. trigger for me.

Being a Hoosier like you, I would invite you to come try my M&P trigger, if you ever find your way to the SB / Elkhart area.
