I originally posted this at the S&W forum, and was directed to this site. I have looked at this site before, but am more S&W revolvers myself. The forthcoming M&P compact has me intrigued as a possible replacement for my Glock 23. This is the question/response/question I posted there.

.

Is it "user" adjustable, like my Glock? I know enough about the Glock design/takedown to be able to swap out springs and connectors to vary the trigger pull. Does the M&P have the same ability?

.

There is a DIY trigger job in the M&P forums.

.

I saw that, and should probably direct this question to that forum instead. I'm more interested in if I could increase, not decrease the pull weight. On the M&P's I've handled the 6.5 trigger felt a little light/mushy for my tastes. I see they're offer a 10lb on the forthcoming compact, which might be a little much. I'm going for something in between, like an 8lb.

Now,



Ive only had my MP (dept issue) for a few days, but Ive shot Glocks for quite a while and I have to say I like the MP stock trigger much better than the Glock stock trigger. Now, my CZ's I shoot in USPSA Prod as phenominal, but if I couldnt shoot the CZ's for whatever reason, I'd seriously consider shooting the MP for Prod.



Very happy with it so far and have had limited time w/ it. Time will tell how well the MP fares.

My original question still hasn't been answered. Can and how is the trigger pull weight adjusted?(Be it up or down)?

The weight can be adjusted up and down but not like glock by just swapping parts, yet.



I guess some day when we get some people making some aftermarket springs then users could increase the pull weight on their own, but for right now it cannot.



I can adjust the weight up but it is something that takes a trained hand, and not something that I would recommend the average user to try.



When S&W does come out with the 10#mass compliant guns then maybe we will have more variety in parts to tweak the pull weights up.



I have not heard how they are planning on getting to the 10#, when I see how they do it and if they will sell the parts that increase the weight then you could probably mix and match parts to get to your desired weight.



I have heard the Wolff is making striker springs for the M&P. If true they usually make extra power springs that would raise your weight by a little. I have not tried it yet so I cannot say if it will get to your 8# goal



I hope this helps, although it doesn't sound to informative to me.

I'm missing something. Why would I want to increase the trigger weight? Don't most "accurizing" kits reduce trigger weight along with pre- and post-travel?

Greener,

No you are not missing anything. Some of these really old guys
that came up shooting double action revolvers or retired/current NYPD used to Glock 8# NY triggers, now just prefer the heavier triggers as that is what they are used to and just don't feel right unless their triggers are 7-8#.



Different strokes.... 8)

I know this doesn't directly apply, but when I was playing paintball I used to have realy heavy triggers. I was a percussionist for 10 years, so when I shot, I rode the trigger and let the spring weight push my finger back in to place. That allowed me to shoot much quicker with a pull/relax method instead of a pull/extend action of my finger. The heavier the trigger spring, the quicker I could shoot. In the days before electronic triggers, I was over 12 RPS or abut 720 RPM on a fully mechanical semi-automatic.



Pistol triggers (the few I've tried) I like light, but there are comfort reasons that may cause people to like heavy triggers.

This is true. I've put a 4 lb. (Stock is 5 lb.) in mine but when I shot it last Saturday I had a couple of light strikes so I'm going back to the factory striker spring.



Here's a link to Wolff's M&P springs.





Go to Semi autos.--> Smith & Wesson--> M&P--> scroll down to their striker springs.
