Unlocking Your M&P 2.0’s Potential: Top Trigger Upgrades

Smith & Wesson’s M&P (Military and Police) pistol has been on many best-of lists since its inception in 2005.

This polymer-framed, short recoil-operated, semi-automatic pistol has the reliability of a Smith & Wesson coupled with newer tech like a polymer frame and ergonomic improvements from the combination of two other S&W guns — the Smith & Wesson Sigma (their first foray into polymers) and the Smith & Wesson SW99 (S&W’s version of the Walther P99).

The learnings from the Sigma’s use of polymer and SW99’s ergos were brought over to the M&P, which are significant contributors to the pistol’s usability, success, and adoption by everyone from Australian Police Forces to the Vermont State Police.

Of course, like any gun, there’s room for improvement and personalization, and even some of the mid-shelf M&P 2.0 models have triggers that can leave something to be desired. Luckily the M&P is relatively easy to work on, and there’s a robust market for M&P 2.0 triggers — many of which are worth considering.

While the “best” of anything is highly subjective, some are, without a doubt, heads and shoulders above the rest and will instantly upgrade your trigger pull. If you need more detail on the M&P 2.0, check out our M&P Shield review.
