Anyone else hate the flat FSS trigger

Recommended Posts

So..... I have a 1.0 M&P with the polymer curved FSS trigger. Love it 

 

Now, I have a 2.0 M&P with the flat FSS and hate it. The safety dingus sticks out 3 times as far. You really have to press perfectly straight back and towards the bottom of the trigger. 

 

Doesnt that defeat feat the whole purpose of a flat faced trigger? 

 

I wish they they would come out with a polymer curved trigger for 2.0. Sorry for the rant.

I like the ALUMINUM curved FSS trigger. It positions my finger consistently and I can feel that I am pulling straight back.

Shave the tab down flush with the trigger face and reduce the dingus in back so that the gun is still drop-safe yet disengages consistently.

 

Pretty much everyone has to do this with the APEX flat trigger for the Walthers, because the trigger requires a totally perfect pull.

Ok. I can do that. As long as it still has a functioning trigger safety, it’s ok to modify that. 

I just didn’t want to screw myself at a level 2 if they did an equipment check.

Moreso than a match equipment issue, I don’t want the gun going off if dropped!

 

Take a look and grip it oddly or weakhanded and you’ll probably see it nearly clears... but doesn’t.

I prefer the aluminum curved. Flat triggers in pistols just feel weird to me.

Used a flat forward aluminum trigger in a gen1 that broke at 1.75 lbs. Now I use a curved plastic trigger in a gen2 that breaks at 3.5 lbs. Both triggers have their pros and cons. The flat has negligible pretravel whereas the curved one is more forgiving on finger positioning.

Same here I use the flat faced trigger in my 9L for steel challenge matches, where I'm looking for pure speed, that trigger is very fast

I wound up modifying my safety dingus and it’s much better now.  I still prefer the curved but I think this will grow on me 

 

Still works as it should

I agree.  I have a second lower with the Flatty and prefer the curved.  Smaller hands as well don't help as the flat trigger seems to be a longer reach.

I tried the FSS and never could get comfortable with it. I eventually switched back out for the stock trigger till I get a chance to find something I like better.

It depends on the springs used but it's still not a 1911/2011. I've got it around 3 lbs and it's pretty crisp.

I put the 100-154 kit in my 2.0.  Absolutely awesome trigger/improvement.  Once it resets the forward travel/finger stops.  Pull to the rear and it releases/fires.  Very little movement in either direction.  Very little.  It's still a 3 lb. trigger pull, but so crisp.

Just pop the roll pin out of the trigger safety.  It keeps you from having any malfunctions and it’s striker fired...why would you need a trigger safety anyhow.

That’s an illegal mod for USPSA
