    M&P 40 with Apex hardened sear. Amazingly good trigger

    I've pulled a VP9 trigger which was nice, but in my experience I'd have to say the Canik TP9SF series of triggers. Maybe too light for defensive use. Both of mine break between 4-4.5 lb on my scale and consistent. Very short reset too, and every once in awhile get that surprise double tap when running the plate racks pretty fast especially after a session with Glocks.

    I have a pretty crisp 19.4 trigger and a very crisp 43 trigger at a slightly higher pull weight. If my 19 had the exact crispness of my 43, it'd be my favorite overall defensive trigger.

    While I do not have a problem shooting any striker fired gun that I have shot, for me the best was a TAURUS! .... PT145 PRO! I know I know......
    Least preferred, S&W.... HINGED triggers...?

    Any and all can be used to shoot much better (with ammo a certain gun prefers) than the majority of shooters think is possible IF the one manipulating the trigger is capable!

    Best striker fired trigger ?? 7 pages in and folks are still trying to figure out the best ?

    This is easy - its the one Each of us like best for an intended purpose .

    Not like a double action striker like on a kahr or a p250 can't be shot well specially for defensive needs or a very lite short reset trigger thanks to a apex comp kit on a M&P can't be shoot well too . I have 4 very different striker triggers and a some other types too and I could be content with any of them and but have one I preferred over the last 3.3 years that does not have the best trigger but more do to the total package that works very well .

    OP needs to make this a poll. Looks like Canik, VP9, PPQ, APX, would make the list pretty easily.

    I personally have been looking at the APX and read great reviews about it and seems to be underrated. Plus a rebate for 5 free mags would make it a nice range toy.

    But the APX is the ugliest damned thing ever created

    I thought the same thing about Glocks also, especially a gen2. But beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. I didn't like the APX at first, but it grew on me the more I researched it. I'm going to see if my range has one I can rent before I buy one, but I found one for $399 with free shipping + the 5 mag rebate. That seems like a smoking deal for what you get.

    There are many who are hoping for the same thing. I would be interested to see one in a compact as well.

    Being GT with a multitude of various answers, I will add to the chaos. I will stick with the common guns, PPQ, VP9, Glock, etc as guns like the HK P7 are not so common I think. For me, it is probably the CZ P10C followed by Gen 5 Glocks as Glocks are what I shoot the most.

    Thread has some miles but I'll play. I've never pulled a trigger I was 100% happy with out of the box. Now, I have polished my stock Glock triggers and they feel great...great enough that I don't even want to pull on another kind of trigger. I've sold everything that isn't a Glock other than 2 revolvers and 2 1911's. None of them get any range time, now-a-days, except one of my 1911's and it ain't much.

    I've shot some other striker fired guns and I prefer the Glock trigger because I'm used to it. A double action trigger on a revolver is horrible compared to the single action trigger. And yet if you LEARN how to uses the DA trigger and eventually you can shoot the gun just as accurately as you can cocking the hammer for each shot.

    Same thing with the Glock trigger. There is a learning curve involved and you just have to ignore how "horrible" the trigger feels and concetrate on hitting your target and building up speed.
