Default Just Installed a Hyve trigger on my S&W Shield

I've been carrying a S&W Shield .40 for about three years now and it's been a great ccw weapon. My only real complaint about the Shield, which is numerous among Shield owners was the trigger. Mine wasn't horrible and I shot it fine, but it had a lot of pre travel and was sloppy. I looked at an Apex trigger, which is very nice but it is very expensive. I've been looking at Hyve Technologies trigger and some of their +1 magazine plates. They had a black friday sale and I picked up a trigger for $55.

My Shield has the safety on it so you do have to file down a piece of metal on the trigger housing, but it is really simple. Took me about an hour, two beers, and a cigar to put it in. I haven't shot it yet, but there is almost no pre travel and it breaks very clean. They have a good youtube video on the install.

They are mainly a Glock aftermarket company, but make some products for the Shield. If you don't want to spend the money on an Apex trigger, but want a new one I'd highly recommend the trigger.

Good write up..I would really prefer to hear your thoughts AFTER you actually shot it, just saying..Thank you for the info.. Mine is stock and I qualify on our certified course... The stick trigger is similar to the stock Glock trigger so I am hesitant to change it out..

Quick question

Do they work if you have a model without a safety??

Yes, you wouldn’t have to file a little bit off with the model without the safety.

Took it to the range today and put 100 rounds through it. Took me a couple of rounds to get used to not having as much pretravel. After I go used to it my groups were better then before. It breaks clean and to me it feels better than the hinged trigger that came with it stock.

I’m sure it isn’t as smooth as a Apex but for the money This is a great upgrade. I’d recommend it if you don’t like the stock trigger on your shield.

Smart move. if you have other pistols, change them too
A could of years ago I put identical "match triggers" in all of my h&K's, so that regardless of which one I pick up, the trigger is exactly the same, great investment of time and money
