8.0 trigger

New the forum. Some great stuff here.

I want to make my m&p shield 9mm my official off duty carry. But my agency requires our off duty's to have at least a 8lb trigger (armorer inspects it) so it has to be a legit 8 lb pull or higher. I have found a lot of kits that lower the trigger pull, but i need a kit that increases the trigger pull. Any/all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to our little corner of the web!

Has he checked the stock trigger pull? It is likely it will pass that test with no modifications at all. If you absolutely need something done to increase the trigger pull I would recommend you call Apex Tactical and discuss your problem.

8.0

What is the trigger pull on your personal Shield? The 8.0 would not have been a challenge to my Shield, it checked out at 9# plus

If it is just shy of 9 pounds, a heavier trigger spring should do the trrick.

I would think that as an armorer he could get the MA compliant parts from Smith and Wesson.

If not Smith and Wesson would likely do it, or you could buy a MA compliant Shield.

You also might contact APEX and see what they have to say. They are the experts when it comes to M&P triggers and I hear they are very accessible/responsive as well.

I just checked my 9mm Shield with a Lyman Digital Gauge.
Measured in the 8.5 range consistently.

Gee, that sux!

What's the reasoning given by the moron who thought up that idiotic reg'? Just curious, not looking for an argument. But I still think it sux if you can qualify with it.

It reminds me of when I was part time cop in NJ. I was qualifying with a 297-300 scores all the time but could only carry .38 Specials. Full time cops who couldn't qualify unless they qualified privately could carry .357s . We all carried ammo that could be interchanged, the thought being that I could toss a full timer a reload if he was such an effed up shot and had expended all of his ammo. Yeah, like I was going to jeopardize myself for someone who expended all his rounds to no effect. Anyway, the only difference between a .38 loading and a .357 is the length of the brass. So I loaded up a mess of .357s in .38 Special brass and called it good. Yes, my gun was a .357 and could handle the pressure. I always fired .357s in it during practice and qualification. That was decades ago and a much different world. Today I wouldn't work for that sort of department and put myself at risk with substandard ammo (if I wasn't happily retired).

He's from Maryland, that pretty well explains it.
