M&p shield trigger

I saw in the past there was a trigger kit that was recommended for the shield, but now I can't remember the name of the company. I am looking for a lighter trigger pull and a shorter reset. Can some one refresh my memory on the company.

Thanks in advance.

Alex, Brownells; David Bowie...

As listed, Apex is well known. I'd also check www.brownells.com or the website of top pistolsmith & SWAT commander, David Bowie; www.bowietacticalconcepts.com .
I'm not sure if his shop does any work on the Shield line, but Bowie is noted for custom work on M&P series pistols.

I am just curious and I believe anyone should get what they want, but why would you want a custom trigger for a pistol like the Shield, isn't the Shield pretty much a concealed carry type pistol. I mean I understand you want to shoot small groups with it at the range, but in an self defense situation (assuming that's what you use it for, I apologize if I am wrong) you wouldn't notice the difference between a 2lb trigger and a 20lb trigger.

I actually like my Shield trigger but it is heavy; around 7 pounds... I don't mind it as it's crisp and actually has a reset (unlike my other M&Ps). If you want a 5lb pull give Apex a call. If you plan on carrying it I'd stay away from reducing spring power though...

I am mostly interested in the shorter reset. The lighter trigger pull is a distant secondary want. I am tired of trying to do double taps and not having released the trigger enough for it to reset.

Thanks for the info, Apex was the vendor I was looking for.

In the heat of the moment the shooter might not notice the difference between a 2 lb. trigger and a 20 lb. trigger, but the target sure will. Heavy triggers cause most shooters to be much less accurate, especially when shooting quickly.

If you are even a little bit handy, google DIY Burwelll trigger job

It shows step by step how to get the M&P trigger to a lighter pull

IMHO the reset is fine the way it is on a Shield.

For my carry pistols, I always stay at. 4.5 to 5 lbs, nothing less
