    I picked up the gun and an additional magazine on Thursday.

    So far my assessment is that it is a typical M&P with better sights and trigger.

    The trigger has the initial grittiness that seems to be normal for M&P's until they are broken in, but with a lighter break, reduced over-travel, and more distinct reset.

    I think it was well worth the additional $70 over the standard M&P .40.

    I played around with it doing one handed malfunction drills using the new sights and have concluded that I want to get a set of these installed on my old 9c.

    I'll be going to the range on Monday or Tuesday and provide a full report afterwards.:supergrin:

    I qualified with this weapon last Saturday.

    The Rangemaster held my target up in front of all present and told them this is how everyones target should look. I had a softball sized group in the COM with just 4 or 5 fliers.

    It isn't a hard course of fire (nothing beyond 15 yards) but this sure is a sweet shooting handgun and it's even softer shooting than my SIG P229.

    Highly recommended.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    You should, at the very least, get the Apex striker block. It fixes the grittiness of the trigger.

    In all honesty I don't think the grittiness affects how the gun shoots at all. All of the grittiness is in the take-up and the shootin' doesn't really start until you reach the hard point.

    It probably has some kind of psychological affect on certain people but when I'm running a combat course I don't even notice it. As a matter of fact, the only time I do notice it is when I'm dry firing.
