Just curious how many people never changed ANY parts on there M&P? that means even the sights or adding a finger rest. I know I did not need to but did. This should be kind of interesting to see the numbers.

I can't help it LOL. I love what Apex does for the M&P. Maybe some day I'll put all the factory parts back on just so I can remember why I replaced them in the first place.

All stock here but that's mainly because of fundage. I'd like some trijicons and a smoother trigger but that's all.

My carry gun is a factory M&P 9c with a factory Pro Series trigger group from my 5". So it's a hybrid of two factory guns.

Jeff,

Why did you put Pro Series internals in your 9c? Were they just laying around so you added them or another reason?

Apex DCAEK and Trijicon night sights.



My groups definitely tightened up with the Apex.

Stock .45c rides on my belt every day for work. I like the APEX sear but find the stock trigger to be adequate for a duty pistol. If I were to start competitively shooting, I would most definitely put the sear in.

If changing sights is considered a conversion then my gun is converted. However when i mention conversion more comes to mind than just sight replacement.

I have been completely comfortable carrying my stock FS9. The trigger was a bit rough when I first got it, but after a couple hundred rounds downrange, it has smoothed out nicely. I see no reason to change anything at this time.

All stock except my FS 45 which has night sights. No problems and I practice with them all and carry all at different times.

We have a few M&P40 pistols, I could carry a nearly stock M&P but much prefer the one with an APEX FSS trigger installed. Right now the factory TRS is in there for ~3.75lb trigger pull, but I intend on putting the APEX TRS back in there this weekend which will bring it back up to 4.5lbs. It's so smooth that the last pound doesn't throw my shots off by much.

Only modification so far is a grip kit. Going to change out the factory sights for a tritium front/blacked out rear from Bowie but that is it.
