Default Question about M&P Trigger

Hello,

I have a question for someone more knowledgeable than me about the workings of the M&P trigger reset.
I watched a video on how the M&P trigger is pushed to the right buy the slide to reset the sear.

My question is what pushes the trigger bar back to the left to allow it to reset under the sear. In the parts diagrams I have seen I can not see anything that would actuate the trigger bar to the right. Except the trigger return spring and i don't see how it would have enough force to move the rear of the trigger bar laterally.

Thanks for the responses

Scooter

The trigger bar moves back to the left under its own spring pressure as the trigger bar loop moves past the front of the sear. You can see it do this in the video.

No, it was added by request from users. Believe it or not, some people think it's the greatest thing in gun safety.

S&W makes models with and without the mag disconnect. If you have a model with a mag disconnect, it can be removed very easily.

Well I certainly didn't request magazine disconnects but got them anyway.

Yes, CA requires the mag disconnect, but S&W made them before CA required it.
