Not an, M&P question -I know-, but I figured it would fit here based on smith work. I only use my 22A for slow fire target shooting. The stock trigger is horrible. I don't have a way to measure it, but take my word for it. How low, poundage, would you suggest I have it done. How easy is it?



I'm not planning on doing it myself, but if it is relatively easy I am not too worried about my local gun smiths messing it up. I've never had to deal with any, so I don't yet know who is good or bad.

To answer your question - there are options available to the 22A trigger.



I have a 22A that I bought for the sole purpose of helping me out with fundamental trigger control issues. The stock trigger on that pistol is just horrible! I was very frustrated with the gun after shooting 2 mags out of it.



After talking with the GS at a local Gander Mountain store he was able to clean the trigger up for me. I told him I wanted the trigger lighter not at 2 pound or anything that would cause an accidental discharge if the weapon was bumped or dropped. I explained that the trigger on my M&P is around the 3.5 range and I wanted something comparable.



Not sure of the new weight but it is much more acceptable than the out of the box trigger. My guess is 4 to 5 pounds - it "surprises me when it goes off". I'm not sure if he polished it or replaced springs or both - I can find out the details. It is one sweet trigger now! The cost was right around $50-$60 well worth it in my opinion.

I called a GS, and asked about it. The guy answering the phone told me something interesting. I want some confirmation, or at least input. Unfortunately I forgot the exact lingo he used. Let me try to paraphrase, hoping it makes sense to you




I think he told me that trigger jobs on a .22 could result in slow/softer striker hits (bad)?



The actual GS wasn't there, and he told me to come by one day when he is to talk to him about it. Is there any truth to this side-effect of a .22 trigger job?
