New Micro 9 ( Hvy. Trigger)

My trigger is a bit gritty and according to my trigger pull gage is 9# 7oz.

Is this normal and does the trigger on these Micro 9's lighten with use?

Mine was rough when I first picked it up. If you havent done so, disassemble the hammer and sear and make sure they are cleaned thoroughly. After a thorough cleaning mine smoothed right up. I dont believe mine was ever that heavy, but thats where I would start. Good luck.

I have never thought about the trigger on my M9, good or bad. I researched and about 8lb is normal. I could be wrong -even though you can trust everything you read on the internet . Admittedly, I don't shoot it enough. Now I'm going to put 100 rds through it tomorrow and pay attention to the trigger. I am sure it's smooth, though. No grit. I clean it every 100 rds.

That's heavy for sure.

Both of mine were under 7 lbs from the factory and have loosened up with use.

Here's a review from American Rifleman and both of the Micro 9's that they tested were under 6 lbs.

That sounds more like my experience. I kept thinking I would have noticed that heavy of a trigger ( 8+ lb). For it not to register, it would have to be lighter. Still going to shoot it more tomorrow. Just gives me an excuse. Don't worry. I'm shooting the TLE, too (still lovin it).

So I am the new guy here.
However, I can relate.
My Micro 9 that I received yesterday was measuring 8 lbs. pretty consistent.
I got one reading as low as the advertised 7 lbs, but that was a single event.

Today I tore it down to clean out the factory grease.
I cleaned out all of the factory oil and grease with alcohol.
I then used Hornady One Shot for most of the action.
However the sear and hammer I used one of my fall back tricks
which is KG moly dust.
I pulled the hammer back and pulled the trigger allowing me to use a Q tip to wipe the moly dust across the top of the sear.
I then held the hammer back and the trigger back and liberally sprinkled the moly dust onto the sear.
Then I dry fired the lower several times.
They recommend rubbing in the moly into the metal burnishing it in.
The dry firing with it in the sear hammer area burnishes the powder into the action.

What is the result????
I now have a very very crisp 5 lbs. 1 oz. average over 5 shots.

Tomorrow I will take it to the range and we will see if this holds up after a couple hundred rounds.
I know it sounds too good to be true but I have pictures to prove it if there are doubters.

Pixie Dust?

If it works, I would try it.

Edit: Googled it. Found it.

Well it does work and very well.
So I took my new Micro 9 CDP to the range today and shot 67
rounds through it.

Results?
4 light strikes which may be the ammo as I was shooting Herters,and a friends
precision reloads (he is a very OCD individual).
His loads absolutely no issues and the groups were better. (28 rounds)

So the trigger is absolute bliss.
We both thought it lightened up a little since these were the first shots excluding the dry firing I did yesterday.
We were right, I came home and put it on the Lyman digital gauge and I found it has dropped to a 10 pull average of 4# 13 oz high was 5# 1 oz and low was 4# 10 oz so also very consistent on pulls.

Back to the Range, my buddy was absolutely amazed how small the Micro 9 is.
He held it over his daily carry a Ruger LC9s and commented that he could not believe it but the Micro was smaller.

He also brought a 9mm Shield with him as well.
Of his 2 I preferred shooting the shield, however even though I hate the trigger on the LC9s I shot the best groups with it.

I am sure over time I will get better with the Micro, we are just in our early relationship stage and I am very happy with the start of this relationship.
Light strikes aside it was a stellar start.
