There are a few different ways that you can reduce the trigger pull on your S&W M&P:

  • First, you can try adjusting the tension screws. These screws are located on the back of the trigger assembly and can be adjusted to make the trigger pull lighter or heavier.
  • Second, you can install a lighter trigger return spring. This will make the trigger feel lighter and easier to pull.
  • Finally, you can smooth out the sear surfaces with some fine grit sandpaper. This will help to reduce friction and make the trigger pull smoother.

If you are having difficulty with your trigger pull, we recommend that you consult a qualified gunsmith. They will be able to help you adjust the tension screws or install a lighter trigger return spring.

If you’re looking to reduce the trigger pull on your S&W M&P, there are a few things you can do.

  • First, you can try reducing the size of the trigger return spring. This will lighten the trigger pull, but it may also make the trigger less reliable.
  • Alternatively, you can try polishing the sear surfaces and/or 327 Fed. Mag springs. This will require some disassembly of your gun, so if you’re not comfortable doing that, you may want to take it to a gunsmith.
  • Another option is to install an aftermarket Sear Kit, which will usually lighten the trigger pull by about 1 lb.

Whichever option you choose, be sure to test your gun thoroughly before using it for self-defense or competition.

There are several ways to reduce the trigger pull on an S&W M&P.

1. The most common way is to install a lighter hammer spring. This will decrease the force required to cock the hammer, and consequently, will also reduce the trigger pull.

2. Another way to reduce trigger pull is to install a set of aftermarket grips that have been designed specifically for this purpose. These grips usually have a lower profile and provide more contact with the shooter’s hand, which reduces levering and provides a more consistent trigger pull.

3. A another possibility is to have the sear engagement surfaces on the sear and trigger bar clean and smooth so they don’t catch as easily. However, be warned that modifying your gun in any way can void the warranty. S&W customer service will not warranty any gun that has been modified, no matter how small the modification may be.

There are a few ways to reduce the trigger pull on an S&W M&P.

  1. One is to reduce the weight of the trigger return spring. This can be done by either removing one or two springs from the trigger assembly, or by replacing the factory springs with lighter ones.
  2. Another way to reduce trigger pull is by polishing the engagement surfaces on the trigger, sear, and hammer. This will help to remove any inconsistencies in the surface finish that could cause increased friction and thus a heavier trigger pull.
  3. Finally, you can also install a lighter firing pin spring, which will reduce the effort required to move the firing pin forward when the trigger is pulled.
