The M&P Project – Apex Tactical Hard Sear and Competition Sear Spring

Finally making it back to the M&P Project! If you recall, the first modification I made to my M&P9 was the Apex Tactical USB. The USB made a huge improvement to the stock trigger pull, but still left me with a relatively long reset. The next thing to try was Apex’s Hard Sear.

The M&P Project – First Blush

I finally get a chance to start writing about this! One of my rules of thumb for match prize tables is to always try to pick up something I can use, even if there are more valuable things sitting on the table when I get to it (I’ll write a post on prize tables, and …
