    Have you shot it at the range, or just dry fired it? If you just aren't happy with it overall, then there's no reason to keep it.

    Disassemble it mate and reassemble so at least you know what you have?

    You might try a different gunsmith. It sounds like that one doesn't know very much or doesn't like working on S&W guns... or doesn't know how. If you do end up selling it, get a Beretta.

    I have always liked a Ruger Semi-Auto, but I never had a S&W Semi-Auto, only revolvers. I am very pleased with the SR22 and the LC9s......they even use the same IWB Holster! Bob

S&W customer service quoted me 150 to upgrade to a 2.0 trigger. I'm on the verge of selling but want to give the gun a chance to live up to some of the rave reviews I've read.
    Any suggestions?
    I just picked up a M&P 45 2.0 this am.

    After getting it home and inspecting and a cursory cleaning/light lube I took it outside to my range and put just a few rounds short of 100 through it.

    The gun shot flawlessly and accurately. I also have three Shields (a 40 1.o with an Apex trigger and two 45s 2.0) which are superb shooters. All of the guns, including the full size have great triggers and they are smooth. The 45 hides any and all recoil.

    A trigger upgrade (might cost that 150.00 you mention for a 2.0) may work for you.

    My full size needs another several hundred rounds through it and it will join the other three in a rotation.

    I have been very pleased with the 2.0 versions but the 1.0 took a little cursing and then the trigger upgrade made it a very good shooter.

    OH, ignore those Gluck suggestions My G27 is a constant piece of work (would like to use a different word...lol) to get it to function. I keep it to see what else will go wrong with it.

    Good luck!

    Shoot it for a while, see if it grows on you. Mine did.

    At first, I wasn’t completely thrilled either.


    Now?

    I'm expecting a M&P soon that I bought in line. I hope it will grow on me like that too.

    Not unusual, and yes there is stuff you can try doing first before going Apex. A lot of the gritty feeling comes from the surface of the "ear" on the trigger bar that pushes up on the firing pin plunger to release the firing pin safety, as the trigger is pulled.

    The trigger bar is a stamped part and some are rougher than others, take the slide off and look at the edge surface of that "ear", I bet it could use some smoothing out.

    The other thing to do is look at that firing pin plunger on the bottom of the slide, the edges around it on the side can be rounded off and polished to ease the transition that the "ear" needs to ride over to push on the end of the pin.... much like the transition at the top of a barrel feed ramp into the chamber. If you look at an Apex firing pin plunger, you can see how it's been reshaped to make it easier for the trigger bar "ear" to engage it.

    I did this to my FS M&P 9mm... made a big difference, both in smoothness and pull effort.
