Burwell is still around and still doing triggers for M&Ps. He just went back through mine and touched it up, earlier this year. I also recently spoke with him about doing my wifes M&P, too.

His trigger job is by far the best out there. Apex trigger parts are not bad, but they are hit or miss (no pun intended). Some feel great and some not so much. That being said every single person that has ever tried my Burwell trigger vs their Apex wishes they had gone with his trigger.

All that said, anything is better than the factory M&P triggers. None of the factory stuff feels worth a crap.

Dont bash on APEX, bash on the people installing APEX parts that might not know what they`re doing.

The best video tutorial on the M&P Trigger Job is at the following link. He covers ALL of the issues from start to finish. Kind of a lengthy video, but it's thorough.

I did most of the Burwell trigger job on my .40 and .45 because Apex was not around when I got my pistols. I didn't do much to the sear other than polish the contact surfaces. The striker block (SB) took the most work. The early SB had a short abrupt radius to them that was the main cause of the crappy hitch in the trigger pull. Basically I made my SB shape like the Apex ones. After polishing all the contact points the trigger was much smoother. By reducing the friction via polishing the contact points I'd say the pull weight is reduced by maybe a half pound. The spring isn't the only thing that determines the pull weight.
