If anyone has had a chance to compare/contrast the stock triggers on these three pistols I would appreciate your opinions. I have heard good things about all three and am familiar with the glock 3.5# trigger but the other two I have no experience with and there isn't a LGS that has them in stock at the moment.

I have owned them all (sold the PPQ). What is your specific question as to trigger? Smoothness, reset, pull weight, ect...?

I have shot them all and the G34 and PPQ come pretty close for me. The PPQ maybe gets a slight edge, its like 0.88 over 0.85. The M&P Pro would fall last especially since many M&P Pro users get an Apex kit. I much prefer the Apex in the M&P even the Pro Series models. I would put the Apex kit at 0.81. Each person will have a different view on this as which trigger is better can be vary from person to person.

HATE the reset on the M&P. With the Apex RAM, its not so bad, but otherwise IMO its terrible.

BUT, as TSA pointed out, these are opinions and it will vary from person to person.

Thanks gentlemen,

The characteristics I'm looking for are a defined "wall" with a crisp break and a reset that can be felt which is relatively short. I'm really not a fan of triggers that seem to pull through without much of a wall before the break.

I have held an M&P (not Pro) and while the gun was very comfortable in my hands I don't recall the trigger being especially great. The Pro suposedly comes with an upgraded trigger and upgraded sights and I was wondering if the extra money was worth it for the trigger or should I stick to aftermarket triggers for the plain M&P?

I've read some good reviews on the PPQ trigger but yet it seems you have not held on to them. Any specific reason?

The Glock trigger I'm familiar with. The quarter trigger job does wonders for smoothness and it has a fairly decent "wall" with probably the most solid reset (felt) reset of the few pistols I have experienced. They both could be improved, but not bad for stock.

Triggers are very subjective and I'm looking for opinions either way.

For this feature, the G34 wins for me. The PPQ has a fantastic trigger but what makes it particularly good is the short reset IMO. For solely crisp break, the G34 wins for me.

All have very good triggers though.
