    Smith and Wesson will be coming out with a new trigger for the M&P line. The new trigger will be similar to glocks trigger. Not necessarily with the scissor thing but the shape. It may be like fnh's new fns. This is a much needed update. The new trigger is also said to have a much more crisp/potent trigger reset (like that of a glock or the new fns). I for one am looking forward to this and it may very well take a larger chunk out of glocks LE market.

    Any idea when and whether you can replace an existing m&p trigger with it. I was thinkiing about getting one soon and it sounds like the new trigger would address a concern I had about the model

    Whats wrong with the current trigger? I like the trigger in my M&P .45! It does not have to have the same reset as my G20 which I don't like at all.

    Where are you getting this information? An official source would be great. Apex already has the FSS kit out which is a replacement trigger that supposedly is the best thing since sliced bread, but since it'd not a factory option its not Production (USPSA) nor SSP (IDPA) legal in competition. Any improvements available straight from the factory would be great.

    Of course it's not on there website. If you were still trying to sell back product, would you advertise a new trigger in the same pistol? No! Apple's iPhone doesnt say they will be coming out with a new phone in 3 months. Apple doesen't say a word until it's about to be on the market. The current trigger is hinged and isn't very practical for the world they are trying to be in. An elongated trigger that should be shorter and more smooth. Most importantly it should have a reset more prominent.

    Ok, just confirmed with an individual with S&W. If you currently have a ambi safety frame (not the actual safety) but with the plug. This new part (Coming in summer 2012) will drop in. If you do not have this "style frame" it will be a whole new pistol. This may or may not be available to non LEO's initially. This trigger will be shorter smoother and more tactile. Also a more crisp reset. Beleive it or not idc.

    Call any of the Local and State LE sales agents.

    grayhambone... If that's true and if the price is right then it may be good news for me because I opted for the .45 ACP with the ambi-safety.

    SIDE NOTE: I hope your buddy isn't sacked for leaking S&W trade secrets.

    what is NM?
    nevermind?
    and no it's available. you just have to ask the right person. also, the ambi safety would have to be off from my understanding.

    ^^^ I'd have to permanently remove the ambi-safety leaving ugly side holes and deactivating one of the reasons I chose this very gun?

    no it doesn't leave holes. on S&W M&P what's in that place without the safety is called a plug. it doesn't look different or anything else. the first model frames had this plug rather than the safety. hard to explain.

    Okay... but I'd rather not lose the thumb safety.

    This starting to sound awfully like you're hearing from someone about the Apex Tactical RAM (Reset Assist Mechanism). Goes in the same slot, improves reset and "tactile feel". If not its something awfully similar.

    Either way - "I heard it from a guy who works there" isn't exactly confidence inspiring. I'll hold my breath for an official announcement.

    the guy didn't really state whether or not that would be kept. imo what he said was it wouldn't. idk honestly, I just want to shoot one with the new trigger....If I was in the market, I'd like to have the new firearm rather than the old frame with a new trigger. Well it makes sense that if an aftermarket company made a good improvement, then the factory would follow up with the same part. In reality idk if you read what I stated, if you purchase a new firearm when the trigger comes out it will have the new trigger. Don't beleive me.

    I agree with this.
    Not doubting the OP talking to the guys at S&W, but, in business, if it's not official, it's not. How many times in this gun business have we seen vaporware? Just sayin'.

    there is a bunch of numbers ont he website mike, try another.
    again, back to the iphone.....you don't know the exact specs of the new phone until about a week before right?
    if you doubt the statement. call for yourself.
    I didn't hear it from a guy....I called asking for the simple reason, if a whole department was about to buy M&P's and there is going to be a new trigger/gun then the buyer and manufacture would know?
    maybe the doubters are right.

    Probably doing it because of all the APEX parts being installed. I had the APEX kit installed and it is fantastic . . . just sayin' . . .

    I beleive this may be what S&W referrs to as the "tactical reset trigger"

    They actually did a run of about 500 for a LEO agency, but they are all sold out.
    From what I understand this is a totally different sear block and trigger bar but the actual physical articulated trigger itself is not changing...

    however, we are prehaps talking about two different things

    I left a VM for Mark Dix of S&W who promptly replied with his email address. I emailed asking him to shed some light on the matter. I won't receive anything until tomorrow and I won't be home to see the email until tomorrow night. If others haven't already posted info then I will... if I have it.
