I have looked at 4 S&W M&P's at our local gun shows over the past couple of months. All were full-sized guns....2 in 9mm and 2 in .40. All of the triggers had a "notch" in the take-up, followed by a very smooth letoff. I keep looking for one that has a very smooth, grit-free take-up followed by a clean let-off. Is the "notchiness" normal in the initial take-up in these guns? Does it go away after you put a few hundred rounds through it, or is it just a characteristc of the design?

Shooting it in helps a lot, but what really improves it is radiusing the firing pin block as described by Dan Burwell in his trigger job posting. What you're feeling is the trigger contacting and riding over the shoulder of the firing pin block.

The "notch" you feel is the firing pin safety being disnegaged by the trigger bar. With use it gets less and less as parts wear in. A little polishing and buffing per instructions listed somewhere on this site and you can make it feel good. $50+ shipping back and forth to Dan Burwell or Bowie Tactical (not sure of his prices though) will get you a trigger that is very close to a 1911.

I have done a search for "Dan Burwell trigger job" and all I've found have been references referring to his excellent work by others, but no link directly to his post on the subject. Would you happen to have a link to the posting you are talking about?

Thanks.
