I found the trigger on the M9 PTP to be so light it didn't even approach realism. After your warranty look at a stronger mainspring to get the trigger weight up near where she should be.
My only dislikes with the MP7 is the inability to lock the bolt open without use of an empty magazine and the tiny sling attachment points. The 2-position stock is easily modified with several more notches. I've added four more.

Chuck- What did you use to cut the additional notches? And did you need to cut the notches on both arms or just one?
Thinking of getting the MP7 but want an additional stop or two. Thanks.

Note the notches on one side are on the top and on the bottom on the other This actually makes getting them right easy. Probably a YouTube video somewhere but it's easy.
Remove and disassemble the stock. Mark the stock rail spacer (114) Left and Right so you reassemble the stock rails properly.
Connect the rails together (flip one over and nest them together) using a bolt thru one of the mounting holes. The notches will all end up on one edge.
Clamp them together in a padded vice, make any fine adjustment needed so the existing notches line up, place your marks where you want them (I spaced mine 3/4" apart) and use a flat file to make the notches in both parts at once. A micro saw will work too if you the file out piece left in the center. Front face of the notch must be square to lock the stock in place against recoil.
(I could not find a way to Dremel the notches as the tool motor body gets in the way.)
Dress the raw edges with Aluminum Black.
Yeah, it's snowing on the North Coast!
