Great product !
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Easy to install for anyone with moderate mechanical skills and the correct size punch. I actually used the supplied allen wrench to remove original trigger pin as I did not have a punch, a bit awkward but it worked. With that done the rest was a breeze.Looks and performs much better than original trigger. Most of pre travel gone, easier to insert finger and overall a big improvement.
Great kit

Way better than the factory trigger. With the spring kit pull weight is just under 3 lbs.

Excellent upgrade to my max 9. The install was fairly easy I polished all of the related components and the trigger pull is smooth and light. (I have not tested it with a trigger pull gauge) I think the trigger pull difference is noticeable enough. I’m very satisfied and recommend this product you’ll love it
Great trigger
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
The trigger is fantastic, 💯 better then the stock trigger. The stock trigger would bind when trying to press it from a draw. This trigger completely elminates that. It also feels so much better, the design, the feel of the press. With the adjustment it sets this trigger up perfectly.
Excellent way to clean up Max 9 trigger
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Trigger worked like a charm! Trigger shape I find better feeling when I shoot. Being adjustable is a plus. I am very happy with the purchase.
Side note, installation of trigger I would not recommend for a novice. I highly recommend watching the company's installation video first before attempting. You definitely need a few special tools. But video will take you step by step instantly to disassemble, install and reassemble. I lightly polished several surfaces while trigger module was removed from frame.
I found the trigger well worth the money spent. Would recommend
Great Upgrade!!

I like the Max 9 ..I as others went to this from the LC9s. Liked it from the get go but the trigger was a real draw back. So I got the M*Carbo kit as I did for my previous Ruger. The video was spot on & helped immensely!! The whole procedure took about an hour. The results are GREAT! The fact that I can easily get my finger on the trigger and feels like a trigger should was well worth it!!
Thanks for the wonderful research & development for this!!

Big upgrade from the stock Max 9 Pro trigger. I was regretting purchasing the Max 9 because of the trigger but with the new MCARBO trigger I
feel much better. Install was easy especially with their installation video.
The trigger Ruger should have installed
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Great upgrade to the factory trigger. I have large-ish hands and fingers and really appreciate the extra room you get inside the trigger guard with the M-Carbo trigger. Side to side slop in the factory trigger is almost completely eliminated. The flat face allows your finger to naturally get into the correct orientation. The overtravel set screw is a little touchy to set up correctly. You may need to adjust it a little while at the range to get the feel that you want. The great thing is you CAN adjust the trigger travel. Bravo M-Carbo. ps. Don't forget to use red threadlocker on the set screw. pps. Be careful not to let any springs go flying across your shop when disassembling your Max9!

I just installed the trigger and spring kit mods. No problem with the installation. However, no matter how I adjust the trigger set screw, I don't see any real difference. Did I do something wrong?

Is it possible to use the trigger without the set screw? The thought of it backing out on a carry firearm and possibly disabling the trigger does not sit too well.
