My neighbor came over all grins and giggles today to show me his new 40 Pro and said it was my fault as I let him shoot mine. He said but he thought it had a stiffer break than he thought it would after shooting mine. (which is 4.8#). Long story short, I put it on a Lyman gauge and sure enough it broke right at 7#'s.

My question is, is this considered normal for NIB Pro. I know it will no doubt smooth out, etc after cleaning. rounds down range, but am curious about your experiences. My Pro was 5# OOB so it has come down .2# after almost 1000 rounds.

Thoughts? I know he could go the APEX route but he's (and me) hoping he won't have to since the trigger is suppose to be much better on the Pro.

It's new old stock with a test date 3/16/12.

I think he might ask S&W about it, since they advertise the Pro trigger to be between 4-5.5 lbs. Just curious Jason, why would the SKU number make a difference?

Just wondering due to oddball overrun special order SKUs out there.

Doesn't Smith and Wesson's have different SKU's for Massachusetts guns? My 40 pro broke at a little over 5 pounds new. I put the Apex FSS kits and their RAMs (just my preference) in all of my FS pistols and they all break at around 4 pounds.

Turns out the sku is 178036. As Keeter mentioned, I wondered if it had to do with a MA thing. Guess unless anyone has other thoughts I'll tell him to call customer service.

I'm not aware of any MA compliant M&P Pro SKUs. Send to S&W, shoot it, drop in Apex goodies or do a DIY trigger job.

Thanks all. I guess I'll be doing an APEX job for him if Smith has nothing to say and he puts a few hundred down range to see if that changes it. Enjoy doing that stuff anyway.

I agree. Put a few hundred rounds down range and then you might want to try polishing up the necessary parts. I have nothing against Apex, in fact I have them in both my M&P's, but I read another thread a week ago The Perfect M&P: My Build Journal. Nor sure what the trigger pull came in at, but I'd be willing to bet it would drop it down a little over 1 lb. Just a thought.
