I was at a course a few weeks ago. I did not have my mp40, but was using the smaller pistols i usually carry, a Kahr pm and a 3-inch Kimber CDPII. Instructor (who had a pile of gorgeous custom 1911s) and another student (who had an XD45 with a trigger job) were talking about what a piece of crap the mp40 was. Turns out they thought the trigger was rotten, though they both liked the ergonomics. OK, I'm a big boy, but it bummed me out. I love shooting my mp40, though its my bedside and car gun, not what I carry. I even like the stock trigger on my mp40. But I felt like a bit of an ignorant dum dum for thinking my mp40 trigger was nice when the more experienced guys did not. OK its not like my Kimber 1911, but I still like it. Oh well. Screw them. On the other hand, if I already love my mp40, maybe it will be like a bit of heaven if I get a burwell trigger job on it.
