Any reviews of the Apex fully machined sear in the M&P 9c? It seems that the pull is reduced in the Shield but I don't see much about the break. I have a fairly new Compact 9 that I'm considering installing the Apex standard sear in. However, I'm happy with the crisp break and I don't want to lose that. So, could someone please review any changes in the creep, break and reset in the M&P 9c or 9fs?
I didn't see any feedback on the Apex standard sear but I took the chance and bought one and installed it in my M&P 9c. I never had any grittiness in my trigger and it already had a crisp break and a crisp reset. After installing the Apex sear, the creep is a little farther and still smooth. The crisp break and crisp reset are there. I didn't measure the difference in pull but it feels very consistent with the Apex video on thier website in which it went from slightly over 5 lbs to slightly over 4 lbs. This was my subjective measurement while dry firing. My target range is outdoors and it is rainy and muddy right now, so I have to wait for more follow-up from my live firing experience. So far, so good...
If you are considering buying a new sear, be sure you have a 1/8" coil pin punch and a roll of duct tape to place under your pistol while you pound the daylights out of your punch. That coil pin is very hard to get out and back in the first time.
