Apex semi drop in barrel for a MP Pro 9mm
I went with the Apex semi drop in barrel for my 2 MP Pro 9mms, installing them myself. I used a marker instead of Dykem. Bought a file from brownells with the barrel.
I highly suggest installing the Apex barrel yourself, and its nothing to fit it if you have any mechanical skills. I watched the video from Apex, a few times, and took it step by step and went for it.
Took me about 1-1/2 hours on the first one, only one hour on the second one. I had to fit the lug, and then the pad at the bottom of the barrel to lock it in battery. the barrel has no movement at all. Fits great. They state it would take about 2 lbs to lock it in, but I took off a little more to where it was about 1 pound. I thought the 2 pounds was too much force, even though I know it will wear itself in. I didn't like having to jam it that hard.
Took them to the range, and my groups are just as stated by apex. Benching at 25 yards(my hand resting on the bench), I shot 1.25" groups with most of them touching. My groups free hand at 25 yards were 2.5" which isn't bad for an 53 year old guy who cant see anymore.
Both shoot the same and the stock triggers are both very light, 4 lb - ish......
