Default 1.0 .45

Never could shoot this M&P accurately.....some said the pistols are not accurate. Some said the barrels aren’t accurate. Everyone knows the triggers are terrible.

Looks like the trigger job ‘took’....... first three shots with the enhanced sear.

I had two different 1.0 .40's, and then two different 2.0 .40's.
The triggers on the 1.0's were much better than the ones the 2.0's had.
I put Apex parts in the last 2.0 I had, and that was better, but none of them I considered accurate. 3 1/2" to 5" at 25 yards was a typical group with any of the 4. An aftermarket barrel would have helped things.

I sold the last .40 and recently bought a 5 inch MP9 (2.0). It too had a sucky factory trigger, (which I replaced with Apex parts) but must have a better quality barrel. First time I took it out with 3 different 124 grain loads, it shot sub 2" 5 shot groups. If not for one flyer out of each group, they would have been sub 1" groups.

My .45 Shield has an awesome factory trigger, and it will do 2 inches at 25 yards with Speer 200 grain Gold Dots or 200 grain Hornady XTP's.
It shoots 200 grain bullets much better than 230 grainers.

I own four M&P 45 1.0s. One 45FS and three 45Cs. All have been Apexed and all of them flat out shoot. Give the Apex trigger a try. The polymer only runs about ~$45 or less if you look. Lessens overall travel and gives a much harder stop in the back. I absolutely hate the glock "tab", but the apex is much better.

Watch the Apex vids. I'm a firm believer in adjusting the trigger loop to hit that sweet spot. A shooter is more likely to torque the pull depending on where the sear breaks in the stroke.
