Apex Flat v Curved kit

Hi guys, I am going to purchase an Apex aluminum FSS kit for my M&P9 and am curious if there is any performance differences between the flat faced trigger or the curved one or is is simply cosmetic and preference to feel. I have never used a flat faced trigger so I am really curious as to if there are any benefits with it or not, I also think I might go to my local range and see if they have any firearms for sale with a flat trigger so I can get an idea if I like the feel or not.

I like the flat faced trigger on my M&P 9. I don't know if this is an advantage but I like the fact that I can change the position of my trigger finger up or down on the trigger(versus the curved trigger which kind of dictates where your finger sits) to get a different feel and change the pull weight a bit due to more leverage lower on the trigger (lower weight) or less leverage the higher I move my finger (higher weight). Just gives me a little more choice in comfort and trigger pull. Just my opinion.

I have both. I prefer the curved, I guess because that is what I'm used to. The flat supposedly mimics a 1911 trigger the most. I don't have a 1911. All of my other triggers are curved. The FFT feels spongy to me.

Well its handy you have both to give a comparison. I also am used to the curved and do not own or have shot a 1911. I think I will be going with the curved as I am used to it and comfortable with a curved trigger.

Also Avedis, you weren't kidding, that is definitely the cheapest I have seen the Apex kit by far. It is also the first I have seen having it polished as an option. By polished does that mean smoother (like how people polish the factory parts)? Or polish like a car for a shine.
