I installed the RAM along with the polymer AEK trigger and the competition action enhancement kit today and what a difference. I let a few guys at work who have shot my M&P pro 9mm before feel it and they all said it was night and day. It is truly a piece of art when it comes to smoothing out and reducing the trigger pull on the pistol. The RAM works great, but to me I've never really had an issue with needing to feel the reset. It is priced low enough to make it worth it, but I really wouldn't sweat not having it. I used the sear spring from the competition kit rather than the one that comes with the trigger kit due to wanting a light trigger break. It is almost too light, but if you want competition it doesn't get much better. I might play around with the sear springs to see if I can get a combination that is custom to me. Overall, worth every penny. The Pro series should have come with this from the factory.

I recently installed the RAM-Hard Sear-USB...the "Big 3"...in my 2006 M&P FS 9mm. The videos were excellent and walked me right through it. All I can say is "Wow!", what an improvement! Trigger pull went from 6ish to 4.5 lbs. At the range, staying on target has greatly improved, no more pulling down or low left shots. Nice work Apex!

PLEASE READ THE REVIEW BY ANSEL, DATED DECEMBER 14, 2012. THE RAM WILL NOT WORK IN SOME OF THE NEWER M&P'S. I SHOULD HAVE PAID CLOSER ATTENTION TO THE DESCRIPTION. NOW I HAVE AN UPGRADE THAT WON'T FIT INTO MY GUN. IF YOU'RE NOT SURE, REMOVE THE SEAR HOUSING AND CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE THE HOLE NEEDED TO INSTALL THE RAM, AS PER THE YOUTUBE VIDEO.

Installed this in a March 2012 M&P9 FS along with the DCAEK right after purchasing the firearm. Very distinct reset, it can't be beat. Very innovative product that does exactly what it says it does. A few thousand rounds later and I've had zero issues with it.

BE careful when purchasing this product for a new (June 2012 and newer) M&P9 as they have since redesigned the sear block to model after the VTAC one. I purchased one of these RAM's and was unable to install it on my basic M&P because of this. It works fine on the other M&P I installed it on, but I am concerned that APEX hasn't updated their disclaimer to reflect these design changes when they know about them already.

Just installed the RAM in both my compacts. Simple to do and very happy with it. You can definitely hear and feel the reset. I would definitaely recommend it to anyone that has an M&P.

Thanks much for the great product and great service. The RAM was here in 2 days. It was easy to install and works great. I love the reset. I have two other M&P's with the safety. Any word on when that version of the RAM will be available?

Just installed this in my 9c and holy crap. I didn't think that the reset on a stock M&P was that bad and didn't know what everyone was complaining about but after installing the RAM I don't know how I even tolerated the reset before.

The Apex RAM for the M&P pistol should be one of the first upgrades anyone makes to their M&P. Much greater tactile feel and audible reset. One of my instructors teaches students to "shoot from the reset", and the reset is different for each pistol. My M&P was barely noticeable before, but now is clear as can be.
Installation is a breeze. If you have the basic tools, and can follow the YouTube video, then you can install this yourself.
My next purchase will be your Hard Sear and USB, then eventually the AEK Trigger.
Thank you Apex for the great work you are doing for M&P shooters like myself!

The M&P RAM truly sets the M&P apart form all other firearms. Having a reset of 1/16" or less places this firearm in a class by it's self. I spent over #300.00 on each Glock I owned only to sell everyone of tham because with the Reset assist Mec. compared to the Fulcrum trigger from Golckworks costs 10 times the apex RAM and you still have a firearm that has the worst grip angle in the world and takes a minimum of 3 hours to train a novice that they always have to watch out that the site is not pointing high. plus the fulcrum trigger needs to be staged and the apex system doesnot.I teach figner on the side of the gun when drwing and staging. because of the smooth and consistant pull with a solid reset there is no reasom to stage you trigger before a shot. with the RAM installed you are able to make a consistant double tap from slide to trigger in less than 100th of a second an that is faster than most can get a single shot and restage their trigger on a 1911. I will never own another Glock in my life and would safely bet that that you cannot safely do the same double tap as accurate as you can with an Apex equipped M&P.

Installed the DCAEK and RAM using the APEX YouTube videos and had no problems. Just take your time and follow along. While the DCAEK gave me a smoother, crisper trigger, the RAM gave me a good reset, which is what I was really missing. I can actually feel and hear the reset now.Thank you APEX for these products, which made a gun I already loved even better.

I have an M&P Compact .45 had a gunsmith do a trigger job on it and I still hated it. I bought the Apex Duty/Carry action enhancment kit, wow what a nice kit. I will not be selling my M&P now. I have been checking back regularly for a Ram. I'm still waiting! Quality takes time... Thanks for the quality work...

I installed the APEX DCAEK and RAM on my Smith 40 cal. The installation is not too tough. It goes a lot better if you follow the instructions in the awesome videos. When I finished I had a part left over and couldn't remember where it went, but Randy responded to me quickly by EMail and I was up and running in no time. I am very happy with how the pistol shoots now -- Thanks for some great products and great service APEX.

Where is the .45 version! Over a year?!
(posted on Feb 07, 2012)
When it's available for the 45 Compact with thumb safety I will buy one : )

Looking forward to giving the M&P45 version a try when it is available!

This easily the best $26 (shipped) I've EVER spent of a firearm part.
I have recommended it to ever M&P owner I know (which is a lot).
Everyone who shoots mine says "WOW I have to get one of those for my M&P".
Keep up the good work.

A must on any M&P! Takes all the guess out of trigger reset. And as usual Apex Customer service is second to none!

Installed the APEX RAM in my M&P9L. Easy install, noticeable improvement. Glad I made the purchase.

All I can say is, "Wow"! The Apex Tactical R.A.M. is exactly what the Smith & Wesson M&P needs to be the perfect modern semi-automatic handgun. The tactile feel of a trigger reset has been missing from the M&P line since its beginning, and although Smith & Wesson has made headway in perfecting the weight and feel of the trigger, the reset issue has been ignored.
Thank you Apex Tactical for providing this much needed upgrade to the M&P line of pistols.
P.S. Thanks for the superb delivery time. From the time of order to delivery was two days, from California to Indiana. I could thank the delivery service, but it was Apex who promptly packed and shipped the product as soon as it was ordered.

Put the RAM in the Mrs 9c and it made a noticeable difference in the reset. Much easier to feel now, can't wait to put in the DCAEK as well. Great products.

I installed the RAM in my M&P 9 Pro Series and it provides a much more positive reset, both audible and tactile. Having been a long-time Glock shooter, I was used to Glock's very noticeable reset and Apex' RAM did a lot to get my Pro closer to what I had learned to like. Great job, guys!

When it's available for the .45 I will buy one and istall it. I've put all of the other available upgraded parts from Apex and they have improved the fucntion and reliability of my MP.

i will be adding the m&p ram a.s.a.p.;especially after watching how easy it is to install using randy`s helpful video!improving trigger reset as well as insuring i have a failsafe to manually reset my trigger is not only a plus,but should give anyone more peace of mind in the event of a failure!
