APEX Tactical FSS Trigger kit

Just ordered one for my M&P .40 Full frame. Any tips on installation? I've watched the vids and I'm pretty mechanically capable. Can't wait to install and use this thing! Factory trigger sucks my nuts.

The only part I'm unsure about is bending the hoop on the trigger bar. The rest looks fairly straightforward although with a lot of small parts.

Holy crap. Install took about 45 minutes. I didn't even have to adjust the trigger bar loop. Everything dropped right in and the difference is....amazing. Can't wait to put some bullets down range to really test it out.

Oh, and my other goodie arrived also.....

Damn son! This thing is SAWEEET!

Except I need to increase the reset a little bit. Was doing a speed shooting course at the neighbors that involved bowling pins through large pipes at 10 yards, then 4 more pins at about 15 yards, then two steel targets at about 20 yards. Ended up unintentionally double tapping a couple of times due to the tiny reset of the trigger. I could probably just practice and adapt but I'd rather increase it a tiny amount to be on the safe side.

It is! We use paper targets, pumpkins, even clay pigeons on a stick if you want a really small target. The tubes are stacked too so you have to go up and down in addition to side to side as you move down the line.

Nice!

I'm considering an M&P Compact for daily carry duties. The full frame is nice but a bit large to be concealing with the 15 rd mag making the grip so long. Might have to experiment with holsters too or holster position.
