Nothing but good to say about this upgrade! Definite improvement over the stock trigger. This is my wife's firearm. She is a small woman with small hands. The stock trigger felt rough to her and was hard to engage. This one is a definite home run with her. Plus the set screw allowed her to adjust the stroke/reset position to her liking. And the install video made it fairly easy for this non-gun-smith to follow and install. Kudos to the heroes of MCarbo!
Love the new trigger for my LCP MAX!
I'm 78 years old and the original trigger hurt my finger and I didn't like the feel of it. I have the original LCP and it's trigger was better than the MAX. Bought your trigger kit, had a gunsmith install it and what a difference. It now feels just like a trigger should feel. No shot hesitation, etc. Great value for 59 bucks!
I have concerns
The trigger itself feels nice. My problem is with the set screw. After having the trigger out for two range days. ( about 300rd) i have noticed the set screw hitting the frame of my lcp max. It has a nice shiny spot. ( i have yet to take it apart to see if its dented the frame of my gun).... i dont understand why M-Carbo just didn't make a shelf on the trigger instead of the set screw which seem kinda sketchy. Could fall out. Or now seen over time could possibly brake the frame of my lpc max. Until they com up with something different i would recommended Google for a different trigger with no set screw...
Trigger is great; beware though the LCP22 install
As far as I can tell, MCarbo video shows this installation on the .380 version. I strongly urge them to do a LCP II 22LR version; there are extra parts (safety, trigger disconnect) that are really tricky to position and get properly shoved into the outer frame.
Secondly, do not - DO NOT!!! remove that third pin that holds the hammer catch.
I can't stress this enough. ONLY REMOVE THE TWO FRONT AND REAR PINS. I was having issues extracting the inner aluminum frame from the outer polymer frame and stupidly punched out the hammer catch pin. Really bad move that took me hours to get those three parts back in place.
Note: the Ruger manual shows an incorrect sequence of parts for the hammer catch. The far right is the catch, the left is the spring and the spring leg fits in a hole on the left upper part of the catch. You'll need to make your own slave pin if you have to install this. So DO NOT REMOVE IT.
Use some grease to hold the trigger disconnect in place while you push the serialized frame down into the polymer frame.
As MCarbo says, you'll need to keep pushing the hammer catch forward with a small flat blade screwdriver as you push the rear of the inner framer into the out frame. Push the catch forward, push down, repeat 2-3 times until it fully seats.
Good luck. The MCarbo parts are excellent; installation can be VERY difficult. My pain is your gain.
The M*CARBO replacement trigger for the LCP Max is substantially better than the stock trigger and definitely more comfortable than the other major aftermarket trigger for the LCP Max. It doesn’t totally eliminate the notorious finger pinch associated with this pistol but it makes it quite tolerable. The M*CARBO trigger is well made and easy to install. I would definitely recommend it.
Best aftermarket trigger
Great trigger. No more finger pinch, or trigger slap. I bought a Sigurd trigger; it broke after the the first day. I was hesitant to buy the mcarbo because it had a set screw. However, 500 rounds and have not any problems. Very comfortable to shoot
LCP II Flat Trigger and a Springs Replacement Kits
Just bought your MCARBO LCP II Flat Trigger and springs replacement kits; followed your installation videos with no problems. Adjusted the trigger to reduce the trigger pull then took it to the range today. OMG what a difference. That little pistol sat unused for many years quite frankly because the long trigger pull made it almost impossible to hit a decent shot pattern at 20 feet. It also pinched the crap out of my trigger finger. Well no more. Although my shot pattern at 20ft isn’t that of my 9mm Sig P325X, I’m totally blown away with the improvement. Now if you could get me a Flat Trigger for my LC380 (already replaced the springs with those that I bought from MCARBO which helped some) I would bring it out of retirement too. Thanks Jesse
MCARBO LCPII FLAT TRIGGER AND SPRINGS UPGRADE
Great upgrade trigger
Much nicer than the finger pinch trigger the gun comes with.
Will this fit a 2016 vintage LCP?
Does this add a safety to the LCP, which does not have a safety?

Does the MCARBO trigger for the Ruger LCP MAX fit "tighter" than the stock trigger, specifically in the area where the trigger goes into the frame? There appears to be a lot of space between the stock trigger and the frame, which can cause finger pinch - does the MCARBO trigger eliminate the finger pinch?

Tolerance is about the same, but the design help with how the trigger sits on the trigger guard.
Does this effect the safety of carrying the max loaded and in battery?

The M*CARBO trigger uses the same type of trigger blade safety as the OEM. When using a holster to cover the trigger, you should have no issues.
