    Is there anyone in Oregon that does similar work to M&P's like Dan Burwell? Burwell Gunsmithing- Your M&P specialist. I need the trigger done, the beavertail removed, and the grip enhamcement done.

    Shipping alone is $130 to send it to Dan, so I'm hoping there's another option closer to home.

    I own one of the first Gen. M&P's and took it to a local gunsmith..... Hopefully you will not mind if I give a few opinions.

    The trigger job done by the local gunsmith was serviceable. I prefer the Apex trigger kit. Watch the YouTube videos. It's just pulling out a few roll pins and making sure you don't lose parts. I even called Apex to ask a few questions after installing my parts. This is where I learned that Smith makes a new sear housing block with a larger plunger spring and they have also updated striker spring.

    So I went from a Gen 1 M&P to a Gunsmithed trigger, to an Apex trigger, then I upgraded to the newer sear housing block with bigger spring and newer striker spring. It wasn't until the last two parts that I really liked the trigger.

    As for stippling...I do't know what to tell ya.

    I have done stippling work on an M&P and Glock. You can DIY with a soldering iron, and the bobtail with a dremel.

    I've hear good things about Apex. Maybe I'll give that a try. Thanks!

    I've considered this, but the fear of F'ing it up has always be in the back of my mind.
