Shooting Fast Accurate Easy is a passion for me. In pursuit of that passion I have spent a great deal of time and money figuring out what gear works best to achieve those goals. This is an M&P 2.0 set up the way I would set it up for my personal use for competition, combat or EDC.
I have spent a great amount of time on some different pistol platforms. The M&P 2.0 is the BEST polymer pistol that I have shot. The ergonomics, grip texture, trigger mechanics, accuracy and ability to absorb recoil, offer everything I need in a pistol to Shoot Fast Accurate Easy.
The pistols feature FP slide manipulation cuts which where designed to offer function and not just cut a bunch of metal off a slide for cosmetic purposes. I am however very pleased with the aesthetic touches that were applied to these functional cuts! I partnered with Fire4Effect to do the slide work and they did and excellent job in putting traction in the correct spot on the slide (midway between muzzle and ejection port) while keeping the cuts clean and removing minimal material from the slide. NOTE- In my experiences as a SHOOTER lighter slides with standard ammo produce a very harsh and snappy recoil impulse/less than optimal sight track. This is why I required minimal weight reduction from the slide to put these manipulation cuts on. The end result is less than an ounce of material removed from the slide, maintaining a good recoil impulse and sight track. Slides are CNC machined for precision and Black Nitride finished for durability and corrosion resistance.
These pistols all have the FP upgrade package for M&P - These are the products that I run on all of my M&P pistols(including the 2.0 compact that I carry daily)to give me all the performance, reliability and accuracy I require. The picture highlights the benefits of each component. These are the only trigger parts I use or recommend, I use and recommend using the factory striker spring and trigger return spring. The trigger parts listed in this kit with factory trigger return spring and striker spring will produce a very reliable and clean trigger break around 3#. Some pistols may be slightly above or below 3#. In over 60k rounds of shooting with these components in my pistol I have had zero ignition problems.
Below is a list of the components in the FP upgrade kit and their benefit:
Proctor Y Notch Sights- Offer improved Speed and Accuracy
13# Recoil Spring with FP Black Nitrided guide rod- Reduces felt recoil and produces a faster/flatter sight track and easier slide manipulation without compromising reliability
Apex Polymer Trigger Shoe- Improved geometry producing easier trigger manipulation and shooter comfort
Apex Sear- Improved geometry produces lighter crisper trigger break
Apex striker safety- Provides less friction in trigger travel resulting in lighter cleaner trigger break

M&P 2.0 Compact
Frank did a phenomenal job with my 2.0 compact. Prior to this I have been running a $2200 fancy M&P. I can honestly tell you Frank's build is a WAYYYYY better buy than going nuts at the custom shops. Sometime less is more.
Enchanced M&P 2.0 5" 9mm and a Compact 9mm
Just received my Proctor Enhanced M&P 2.0 pistols both a 5" and a Compact this week and these guns deserve to be famous. Love the triggers in both guns. Incredible smooth break and positive reset. I have used Apex triggers before including the flat faced offerings. Frank's set up is getting the utmost out of the Apex offering...no need for a flatty. The sights are very crisp and clear especially out side. Even on an overcast January day they are bright and quick to pick up. In the sunshine they brilliantly glow as well as any fiber optic sight I have ever seen. Today, I shot the pistols at my local indoor range with dim florescent lighting and the fiber optics are not as clear and visible because there is simply not as much light. These sights are smaller in diameter than other F/O offerings. I was able to shoot rapidly and well even though the fiber glow was not as strong because the sights do not obstruct the target. I cannot wait to run these pistols at an upcoming class. When you handle and shoot these 9mm handguns it is obvious that Frank Proctor has spent a lot of time and energy working with and on M&P pistols. These pistols are simply the best M&P products I have ever seen and I am glad I got mine before everyone finds out what a bargain they are. Most pleased with the communication from Maryellyn, the friendly helpful service and the product from Frank Proctor Shooting. I will definitely be a repeat customer and I really want to come take a class now.
FP Enhanced M&P 2.0 C
I received my gun this weekend and am very pleased with my purchase. I have only put 200 rounds through it so far, but it has ran flawlessly. The apex trigger is a game changer! The sight picture helps you get on target and adjust your alignment quickly. If you are looking for a new gun and want to take your shooting to the next level, pick up one of these bad boys! Practice and fundamentals. To echo FP, "FAST, ACCURATE, EASY. Looking forward to the slide mods.
