    How many people here are putting these in their M&Ps. I'm picking one up soon and am curious if its worth the cost for the extra parts.

    I've thought about it. I've yet to see one review from an unhappy customer...

    I've got a FS M&P with a DCAEK and RAM in it and I have nothing negative to say about it. Easy enough to put in yourself if you have the inclination (plus a vise and some basic hand tools) and the trigger pull is sweet now. The only thing I'd point out about the RAM is I was hoping the reset would be a bit more tactile/audible but it is definitely an improvement.

    I put the Comp spring set in and cannot say enough good things about it.

    The only drawback is that having seen the difference, I would heed Apex's advice and not use my M&P for carry with the sub-3 lb trigger pull... (I know, its a lawyer thing, but...)

    The two parts I'm looking at come out to $75 dollars. Sounds like it may be worth getting.

    Absolutely MAKES the M&P. I have 3 M&P's and each one has the Apex Trigger, couldn't imagine having one without the Apex.

    Got to give the DCAEK and RAM a AAA+++.

    More of the same - stock M&P good, Apex DCAEK M&P excellent.

    Did you use the Apex springs or the Smith Springs? For some reason I picture 5.5 pounds being a bit much, but I know I'm just thinking of Glock triggers which are quite different.

    I have heard of some people leaving in the stock trigger reset spring as it seems to lower the trigger weight even more, while sacrificing a bit of the tactile feel of the reset.

    5.5 Lbs isn't too much for me at least, I put the full DCAEK in and I'd say that even with the heavier return spring it feels lighter than the stock trigger. I don't have any actual measurements so that is entirely subjective. You could always try it with one or the other and go from there.

    It's my understanding that the trigger goes from ~10lbs to 5.5lbs with the Apex spring, ~4lbs with the stock one. For me I'd probably go with the Apex. You're cutting the weight in half almost still. I'm thinking about buying a kit, but my money has other places to run away to right now.

    I was thinking using the stock springs but will just go for the whole kit.

    I've tried a friend's full size and a Pro with the Apex parts, and it's a world of difference against my stock M&P's.
