Question by ntg: trigger job competition vs carry?
I have an M&P 9 that I bought in MA. It has a long pull, and it also requires alot of pressure as well. A local guy offers two types of trigger jobs. One is $ 70 dollars for “carry”. The other is $ 100 for “competition”. I assume that the carry will take care of the travel or the pull, but not both. The competition probably takes care of both things. I’ve been leaning towards the competition one, because I will generally use this gun at the range. (I have a revolver for home defense.) While I think I’ll go with the competition, I thought I’d get input from any regulars here.
Also, does anyone know if this trigger job might make the trigger perform a lot like my MKIII Target?
Yes, I will only be using this gun at the range for the foreseeable future. I rarely carry, and when I do, I carry a DAO revolver as well. I do think that my M&P has a thumb safety, which may also be a MA thing. I’ll check it later, but I’m pretty sure it does.
Glock Doctor-do you believe that because they are usually carry guns, or is there another reason why you think these guns shouldn’t have these triggers?
Thanks for the additional info, tho some of it was over my head. My problem with this weapon is that I can’t shoot it the way I was taught to shoot. In order to squeeze the trigger without jerking it, I have to put more of my finger into the trigger guard, which I’ve also been taught is wrong. And then the travel seems to take forever. I understand this is even called the “Massachusetts trigger”, something special for this stupid state. I’ve used four different revolvers in double action mode, two of them brand new, and none of them felt like this. Anyway, since I won’t be carrying it, I’ll do the competition, but I will make sure he doesn’t go too light on it. I’ll ask about the pounds of pressure he plans on bringing it to.

Useing the M400444304 is a good choice. It’s trigger is one that kick backs when shot. And it also has a lot of creative features.
