I am wanting my LE trade in 1.0 40's trigger to be as crisp and feel like the 2.0 trigger is.
How do I accomplish this?
How do I accomplish this?
I have this kit in one of my M&P's already. But, it's nothing like the 2.0 trigger.Buy an Apex DCAEK (Duty Carry Action Enhancement Kit) and install the new sear, sear spring, striker block and striker block spring. The cost is modest and the difference will be staggering.
The installation is pretty straight forward and there are YouTube videos and videos on Apex's web site showing how it's done
YMMV. I've shot, inspected or worked on dozens of 2.0s and not one has had a gritty trigger. The 2020 manufactured guns' triggers are even shorter and crisper than the older ones.Every 1,0 trigger I've had has been decent and left as is, and every 2.0 trigger I've had is heavy and gritty and was changed out immediately with Apex parts.
I'm still waiting to see one of those "new and Improved" stellar 2.0 triggers.
Speaking of lack of knowledge or experience.Mass production, produced a quality handgun for the price, but lacks some of the refinement points. READ THIS! http://www.burwellguns.com/misc/M&Ptriggerjob.pdf
THEN DO THISand a couple of hours and $10.00 worth of stuff you should have anyway, and you have a very good piece. However: two other points, if you will for the first 30-60 days keep the gun stored with the slide locked back and with the mags. (kept separately) fully loaded. it will make for a differently handling gun. I also changed out my sights. (I have more than one) I carry one EDC 18+ hours a day. Then go use it. regularly I find that 95% of complaints are lack on knowledge and or experience, and or poor skill
Or you can do like most; complain and find fault in everything but yourself.
Some but would take years to degrade to the point of being ineffective. But, after a month or so it makes them a little easier to load. I keep 5 loaded always; 1 in the firearm, 1 in my left front pocket, (I carry everyday, all day) 3 in my Jeep, console passenger rear door and inside the rear door. Staged around the vehicle so if I find my self in a defense situation I may be force to one are over another using cover and moving.Speaking of lack of knowledge or experience.
Opening a slide and leaving it open does nothing. Just like leaving a mag loaded does nothing.
Springs weaken from cycling.
What you mean to say is load and unload the mag a few dozen times, cycle the slide a few hundred times and they will be easier to use.
Here is one of dozens of articles on the web about this.
Many of us don’t keep magazines loaded for very long, since we’re going to the range and shooting on a regular basis. Sometimes, though, we’ll store fully loaded magazines in a safe or other areas in the house. The question on many people’s mind; Will the spring of the magazine weaken over time...concealednation.org
If you’re mechanically competent, you could disassemble the firearm and buff/ hone the appropriate parts, similar to the video link below. (You’ll also need to follow that Part 1 video with the Part 2 video that is available on youtube.) I would CAUTION you, however, to be careful not to change the angles on the sear as you polish it; if you round the edge of the sear, you’ll either give the trigger a mushy break, or worse, you’ll prevent it from catching the striker, possibly allowing the striker to go forward unintentionally to fire multiple shots per trigger pull or to slip and cause an accidental discharge. However, done properly, you can greatly improve a Shield 1.0 trigger. The trigger on my Shield 45 1.0 now breaks cleanly and consistently at 3 lb 11 oz.; for comparison, the trigger on my M&P 2.0 PC model is about 5 lb. (and rougher)— straight from the performance center shop. I’ll need to improve it a bit also.
Send your 1.0 back to S&W for the Action Carry package, its $125, I think. It will come back with the action of a 2.0, if not a bit better. I was about to sell my 1.0 and buy a 2.0, when i decided to do this.
I Googled the parts and there are 4 sear housings.If you're hot for a 2.0 trigger in your 1.0, you could always just buy a 2.0 trigger bar (and trigger, obviously) and a 2.0 sear housing block and drop them into your 1.0. I did just this thing, and am loving the 2.0 trigger in my "hybrid."
Hi.I Googled the parts and there are 4 sear housings.
Can you please post where you bought the parts, and part numbers?
Thanks for the information.Hi.
I usually get my stuff from Midwest Gun Works. Here's the trigger and here's the sear housing block. Sometimes they're out of stock.
I got my latest parts from Freestone Amory from Parker, CO. He has an eBay store. Great guy, great supply, fast shipping.
Here's the trigger and here's the sear housing block.
Hope this helps.
I think that's the caveat to make sure you know you're getting a M2.0 SHB.Thanks for the information.
On the EBAY site it states that the sear housing does not fit in the 1.0.
