I want to do a trigger upgrade on my M&P .45 1.0 but am torn between the APEX Flat Face Forward set trigger and the M-Carbo upgrade. What are the benefits of each? can I do both? will they work together well?
I would like a smooth 3.5-4lb trigger with a good tactile reset as a result. The trigger pull weight is due to taking classes at Frontsight, were they require a 4lb trigger pull for student’s weapons.
Any and all advice is welcome!
Thanks in advance!
Are you sure you are reading their requirements correctly? It’s often the opposite. As in no modified triggers or non-standard modifications. Seems very odd for a training camp to ask students to modify the factory trigger on any pistol. I have a bone factory M&P 2.0 9mm and it does not have a 4 lb trigger. More like 6-7. Very few pistols come with a 4 lb trigger out of the box.
Maybe your training is more advanced and this isn’t an intro/basic self defense pistol course?
I have a M&P 45 compact and I only replaced the sear with one from APEX and it made a huge difference in the trigger pull. I haven’t weighed it lately but I think it’s in the 3-4 pound range.
