A few months back I was looking for a good light to put on my M&P 9c bedside gun. Unfortunately I didn't find what I was looking for here in CalGuns, but then a few weeks ago I walked into a local gun store and saw this light and realized it was exactly what I was looking for. 100 lumens isn't going to light up the night sky, but it's perfect for looking down the hall at night. It's a nice wide beam. It fits my 9c well and barely sticks out past the end of the barrel (if at all).

I figured I would post this in case anyone else was looking for a light for the 9c, or any other gun. It's a great little light.

I just shot a Shield today, because I was thinking about picking one up due to good rebate. I was blown away by the stock trigger.

Now, I'm thinking about picking up a full-size 9. Is the trigger break just as good? I don't give two rats *** about the reset, just the break. The sample of Shield I shot was a rental, and the break was moderate but crisp; exactly how I like them. I don't care for light triggers (not due to safety); just like that substantial, heavy "wall".

Any folks with older stock triggers care to share some insight? Or is Apex the only route to go? I had an M&P 45 full-size before, but it came with an Apex already installed, so I never experienced the stock trigger.

FS and C triggers are better than Shield triggers when they have the updated trigger system of the newer variants. They break a little further back and have less over-travel.

The cost is minor to upgrade and totally worth it. I have the PRO sear in mine, but the stock sear is perfectly fine.

The bolded part is actually a con for me. I like it when triggers break really far forward / long trigger reach. I think I'm just going to pony up another $30 to rent the full-size before I make my decision. Nothing better than actual trigger time to evaluate a gun.

I should correct to say that the "wall" before the break on the Shield is further forward than the FS and C meaning you have more travel before the break on the Shield. Also, these are off-roster so you'll be paying the CA premium on these. Fair price is between $700-750.

The way you can generally tell between an early FS vs the later FS is the round, ILS hole/cut-out found on the left side of the pistol vs the square manual safety cut-out found on both sides. The ILS will have an arrow with "lock" on it. The manual safety cut-outs or TS cut-outs typically mean that the pistol has the updated, H-trigger bar and slide stop not to mention the revised barrel and larger sear spring.

Feel free to PM me if you find one and I'll evaluate the pistol based on the FS thread. I'm pretty sure that you'll like the FS or C variants regardless. I am like you, and prefer the OEM trigger system over the super light, competition style triggers.

I have a full size 45 (bedside gun), full size 40/357/9 and two Shield 9s... All have stock triggers (I've never felt the need to swap).

I have aftermarket triggers on almost all long guns (at least 10 of 'em) so I'm all about good triggers - just never felt the need on any of my M&P pistols.

Apex as well as hyve make a drop in trigger for the shield. I handled a new unit the other day thinking of buying and the take up was crunchy. The break, crisp. No over travel.

I have a M&P 9mm 2.0. The grip texturing is much improved as well as the trigger pull (at least from dry firing.) I have not had a chance to shoot it yet. The much rougher grip inserts are backwards compatible so I put the mediums on my old M&P 1.0 and kept the small ones on the new one.

Sorry, no pics yet.

Hi all! New member on here! I am 70 years old, an NRA member, USCCA member, Vietnam Veteran, Kern County CCW permit holder. I own an M&P Shield 9MM, and that is my primary carry weapon, I liked it so much, I decided after a lot of thought, to purchase an M&P 2.0 9MM, and found a gun store near me (50) miles away, and went there to see about buying one. Their on line web site showed they had the weapons available for sale, but when I got there, the lady said the M&P is not on the Roster of legal guns! I could have sworn I has looed on the Roster recently and the M&P 2.0 was there, but not now!! Anyone know why the gun fell off the list???

You're mistaken. The 2.0 was never on the list and cannot be added on the list due to the microstamping law (impossible to comply with).

The 1.0 WAS on the list, but was removed and has never returned.

Local pawn shop here had a used, looked new, one fore $279. I've seen them used around me FF or $300-$350. You didn't get a super deal but you didn't really get ripped off either.

Anyone have a consensus on whether the flat or curved apex trigger is preferred on their shield? Got one and getting ready to do a few upgrades all at once.
