Default New M&P 15-22 FCG Springs

Hey everyone, been lurking around the forum for about a month now. I got my m&p 15-22 about a month ago and i ordered the jp yellow springs from midway. So last night i took the gun apart and i noticed that the sear, trigger, ect. were all already polished as smooth as glass. I thought this was interesting because i had read about the 15 minute trigger job and a lot of people saying their triggers had machining marks, ect. so i had took the gun apart just to do a little polishing and install the new springs. I wonder if S&W is now doing this on the new 15-22s. But now im wondering if i should still put these jp springs on. as of now i have blue springs. Thanks for the input

Try them and see what happens. If you have problems, reinstall the factory springs.

FWIW, don't expect more than a 1 to 1.5 pound reduction is trigger pull with the JP springs.

This.



If you have light strikes, you can ask JP Enterprises to swap your yellow hammer spring for an enhanced reliability spring (red).

I don't have any problems with the yellows in my 15-22 or RUC 16.

I didn't have any with mine; just made little actual difference. When I put the Jard in my 15-22, I put them in the junk box. When I bought the youngest grandson's rifle I put them in his. Dropped the TP to a little over six pounds. I put a 100 rounds through it with no problems.

My PC model trigger went from about 6.5-7# to 3-3.5# with the JP yellow springs. That is an RRA NM trigger not the one in the regular 15-22s. Currently that trigger is in my #2 15-22 a regular model, but in this case I put the stock RRA hammer trigger back in and left the yellow trigger spring in. From what I can tell this keeps the low trigger weight but increases the pretravel slightly. Both my Stag 3-gun and my PC 15-22 both have S3G triggers with stock Geissele springs giving trigger pulls of 2.5-3#.

I have run J&P (yellow) springs in mine since the first range sessions. Rarely any issues with light strikes. I run mainly Blazer 40g in my rifle. Several thousands through mine already.
