Okay, not trying to start a flame war here, so please don't.
This is so very serious, so I am asking this.
I have about 20 years shooting civilian and military, from 22's, to assault rifles on full auto, to explosives, and grenade launchers.
What is up with all of this "gritty" trigger crap? What about all of this putting apex triggers on a weapon out of the box?
Here is a post from OCDO I am part of:
I have an M&P40 which I purchased last December. Out of the box, the trigger was gritty with varying "feels" as it traveled to its release point. So I disassemble the gun and carefully inspected its parts; how it worked, how they all worked together, and how the trigger operated. This gave me an idea.
For the next several weeks as I watched TV, I would "work" the trigger many, many times. What I did was (after a thorough cleaning) to dry fire the gun one time, then without racking the slide to reset the stricker, I would pull the trigger rapidly hundreds of times. I have done this well over 6,000 times so far. The result was a much smoother trigger and a better overall feel.
6000 times over several weeks? I called this the TJM, or Trigger Job Mafia.
When did all of these new pistols need trigger jobs? If so many need trigger jobs, then why aren't the triggers being made like this out of the box?
What do people mean the M&P has a "gritty" trigger? Mine is smooth as silk.
Only thing I did to mine was take it home, shoot it, clean it and put it away.
Has the handgun crowd become like the PC crowd, where new gear is bought just to mod it to say it was done?
What does this APEX trigger job that makes the M&P so much better? If it is so much better, and so many people are doing it, why hasn't S&W just changed the trigger around?
I am confused.
