9FS with FSS trigger on steel plates

Had a gunsmith friend put an apex FSS trigger on my primary MP9FS. Wouldn't normally use or recommend this trigger for a carry gun for a lot of folks and in a lot of situations, but my gun has the manual safety and this trigger darn near mimics the 1911 trigger pull that I've used for years and prefer.

Three 12" plates at 35 feet, two shots on each from an M&P 9mm. Start = pointed at ground ~8 ft out, manual safety on.

2.59 total:

Second run, 2.45 total; primarily because my first shot wasn't so slow this time:

I really like this trigger and this gun both. The trigger feels light, but measures between 3.75 and 4 lbs; so combined with the 1911-style manual safety that I've been using for over 30 years, I'm ok with it. I suspect it just 'feels' light because I've shot crappy glock triggers so much over the last few years.

I would have liked to see the videos, but Firefox and the forum software don't work nicely together. Not your fault. It's just something I live with.

The only bone i have to pick with the M&P trigger, even a really good one, is that it's mushy compared to a 1911 or even a Hi-Power. There's no way around that to my knowledge.

Speaking of triggers... I just got a call from Robar yesterday. I have my Hi-Power there for refinishing. I was told that the hammer is following the slide. Bummer, I loved that trigger. It'll need a trigger job. I sure hope it comes back as good as when I shipped it, except no longer following the slide. On the bright side, I should have my gun back in my hot little hands in a week; all work completed.

Edit: BTW, I love your signature line. Just the other day (Sunday morning show on CBS, I can't remember the name) They were discussing having more folks with guns and the argument was put forward that having people with guns on site won't reduce the # or severity of radical muslims shooting people. They said it would have no effect. Oh really!!?? Then what's stopped every one of them so far? I think it was people with guns showing up that did it. The doers certainly didn't run out of ammo.

The FSS makes a real difference. I've got them on three of my four guns (two FS, one compact), but if the gun didn't have a manual safety, I don't think I'd recommend the FSS for carry use. My fourth M&P is a CORE, and while its trigger is better than stock M&P, it's still not as good as the FSS. The FSS is almost as good as a good 1911 trigger and better than a good Hi-Power trigger (and I like Hi-Powers), so they're very good; I love the silly things.

I've retired my glocks completely except as backups/spares.
