Dial In Your M2.0 Flatty

With the new Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit you can dial in the trigger pull weight to the range you prefer. Using different combinations of the Apex and factory sear and trigger return springs you can set your trigger pull in the M2.0 from approximately 6.37 lbs down to 4.38 lbs. This range is based on our test sample so your results may vary, especially taking into account differences in factory tolerances.

    You need to fix the spelling of “Factory” on your chart!

    Ah Yup!

    Great chart, super helpful.

    I know this may be subjective, but can you specify which configuration(s) will provide more of a “wall” feel? I’ve heard from some reviews that some configurations can remove the feeling of a wall altogether and makes the trigger feel like one continuous pull.

    Is this chart applicable to your Action Enhanced Aluminum Trigger & Duty Cary Kit for M&P 2.0 as well? I want to upgrade the trigger in my 9mm 2.0 Compact.

    Not exactly but it does give you a very good template to work from. The pull weights will be different, obviously. The 100-179, the Aluminum Trigger & Duty Cary Kit for M&P 2.0, is ideal for use in the M2.0 Compact.

    Is there one of these for the flat trigger for the M&P Shield (original, *not* 2.0)?

  7. paul - June 25, 2018 @ 7:55 am

    No but it is going to be very similar in terms of the trigger pull weight range.

    Just to echo what Alex asked, is there a spring combo that gives more of a tactile “wall” feeling?

    I’ve got my M&P at the 4.38 lb. setting and I love it, but I wouldn’t mind a bit more of a “wall”.

    The wall is created by sear pressure, if you use the Apex Silver Sear Spring that will product your best bet for a more distinct wall.

    With Smith using their latest -10 deg striker, they’ve eliminated quite a bit of the wall. You could try an Original M&P(silver in color) striker that lacks the 10deg marking, that should help.

    The 2.0 trigger function isnt bad, but the cheap hinged trigger has to go. I just wanna replace it with your awesome flatty, no other changes. I still have to get this whole kit?

  11. paul - June 28, 2019 @ 11:52 am

    “Isn’t bad” isn’t good, either. Yes, you need the whole kit to run the M2.0 Flatty. And once it is installed you will understand how much better the trigger in the M&P M2.0 can be. It does transform the pistol, and the difference is night and day.

    Can this chart be used as a baseline for an M&P Performance Series CORE (not 2.0)?

  13. scott - September 13, 2019 @ 7:45 am

    It might get you close, but it won’t be dead on, the addition of the sear actuator in the M2.0 changes leverages. Since the release of our kit, S&W has altered the striker geometry and some guns come in higher and some lower.
