    What # trigger pull should I expect with this kit?

    Randy, Scott,

    I’m in for 2 kits please. I own 4 Ma compliant M&P’s, all with some degree of Apex kit installed. PLease, if you can put me on the list. I will try to get back online at noontime, but not sure if I can be. I also want a J-frame trigger kit.. I believe you have my info from previous orders, thank you, you guys are the best!!

    This kit will yield a trigger pull in the 4lb range. You can make it lighter by using the factory trigger return spring.

    Will there be a carry kit? Do I need to replace my trigger bar? will the stock striker block safety work if I dont want to use your?
    I got mine nice and polished and would like to leave it in if possible.

    If I already have a DCAEK installed, or if I already have a COMP AEK installed, do I have to replace all of the components?

    If not, will you offer ‘upgrade kits’ at some point in the future?

    What about already installed RAM? FRE?

    Will this kit over ride the trigger safety?

    I just finished installing the forward resetting sear and trigger kit.
    Amazingly good trigger 3.2 pounds in my well work Pro
    No over travel and just enough take up to be safe
    Best trigger ever in a striker fired pistol

    You hit a home run for sure

    Another question on compatibility:

    I have the USB and Sear installed on my MA compliant M&P. Do I need all the parts included in this kit or could I buy individual pieces to equal whats in the kit?

  9. sean - June 8, 2011 @ 10:14 am

    does this trigger remove the factory safety mechanism?

    should this be used in conjunction with the comp aek and ram?

  10. scott - June 15, 2011 @ 1:48 pm

    Chris- You will need the complete kit for the FSS to function properly in your gun. The Sear and Striker Block are different for the FSS.

    Sean – The FSS Trigger replaces the factory trigger with a similarly functioning trigger with a center mounted pivoting safety.

    The FSS is different than the other kits and will have it’s own set of springs available for it. The RAM is useable, but only the Mag Disconnect model of the RAM.

    love the look of the forward set trigger kit. the way that trigger looks and the idea of my trigger working further forward sounds better for my longer fingers but I have a few questions. from my understanding I need to return my M&P back to stock before installing this forward trigger kit? I have the DCAEK kit installed and just ordered the ram to install. can these kits be mixed? I also saw its recommended for comp. so is there a carry kit in the future works? The DCAEK is great but i want that trigger with more forward reset! Thanks for your time and the help with making my M&P even better.

    i have a m&p 40 compact with a thumb safety, do you have a forward set trigger kit that will fit and still allow my thumb safety to function as designed,

  13. paul - June 19, 2015 @ 2:14 pm

    All the Forward Set kits work in your model. It’s only the RAM that does not work in the thumb safety models.
