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.
Thats awesome gglass, its nice to know that the ingredients are there,
just with a little massage, BANG, a good gun, made greater..!

Gglass, you are correct my 2.0 has a great trigger as is, breaks at 4.5 according to my gage very happy with it, i figure more shooting it will smooth up even more.

Thank You for the offer gglass, but we dont get in your direction much at all, Thanks for the offer though
