  1. I run apex sears in all M&Ps. I tried the full apex kit with a flat trigger but didn’t care for it. So for me it’s an apex sear and all other parts stock, well they are polished and tuned.
  2. There are good and bad sides of everything. Versamax will shoot a wider array of shells and is the softest shooting of all the major shotguns in use. I’ve never had an issue with slugs in my versamax. It is also very heavy and Remington’s quality control is horrible.Ive replaced most of my fire control parts with Benelli. I do not regret getting my versamax but I will not say it’s perfect.
  3. I’ve been using SP since it was available, it is my only pistol powde now.
  4. Been shooting stretch 16 barrels since they started. I have no complaints.
  5. Find someone who is good with a tig, and your slide can have a long life. That is not a pressure containg area.
  6. I was running M&Ps long before there was a gen 4 or 5 Glock but you are correct 20 years later Glocks finally have a beaver tail option. I’m way to deep into M&Ps to change platforms now so Glocks are out for me. The M&P beaver tail is part of the frame not the grip insert. If you compare M&P gen 1 and 2 guns you can see the beaver tail has been removed from gen 2 guns so they are a non starter for me. In the end they all work just pick what you like and practice none of the guns we are discussing will make you a GM or hold you back that is up to you.
  7. I’ve been running sport pistol in 9 minor and 40 major for two years now, it’s the most temperature stable pistol powder I’ve used. I run 4.8grs under a S&S 180gr coated bullet and has cronoed between 170-175 at every major I’ve shot with it. It’s my new favorite.
  8. The reason I don’t shoot Glocks is because they make me bleed, without a beaver tail the slide cuts me. When the M&P came out with a beaver tail I snapped it up and it has served me well. I don’t want anything to do with the 2.0 since they removed the beaver tail that drew me to them in the beginning. When you listen to the advice on here the conceness seams to be the trigger and accuracy on the 2.0 is better then the original but apex parts are better then both. My original M&P just got me through area 8 and I’ll be running it at limited nationals in October, the gun does not hold me back. In the end if your gun is reliable and accurate enough for the job the answer is practice.

    P16-40 for Limited

    12.5 recoil and 17 main spring when I ran a P16. I ran 180gr Bullets with WSF
  10. I prefer the 5” but it doesn’t matter pick what you like and practice.
  11. Get ahold of bmiller on here, he made a magwell for my cmmg
  12. I got it used off of the M&P forum in the classifieds for $100 shipped





  13. Everywhere you look there is a $20-$40 price difference between the KKM and apex barrels. I would say that’s not enough difference if one barrel preforms better then the other. I like KKM barrels, I have used several when I ran 1911s and I have one in my 40S&W M&P for limited. But the only reason I put a KKM in my limited gun was because apex does not offer a 40S&W barrel (come on APEX). Accuracy is all about consistency, the better the fit is between the slide, frame, and barrel the better the potential for accuracy. This fit insures that the barrel returns to the same place every time the gun cycles. On top of being able to fit the barrel exactly to the gun the apex barrel is the only one that address dwell time. The locking pad and camming surfaces are changed to keep the barrel locked up for a much longer time. I believe this is where the M&P got its poor accuracy reputation from ( the short dwell time on factory guns). I believe the KKM barrel is better then factory but it’s like the difference between a factory gun and a hand built custom. One is a bunch of parts thrown together, the other is fit so everything is perfect.
