Before I picked up my new S&W Shield .40, I had the gunsmith at the gunshop install the apex tactical fully machined sear. Good choice actually, the stock trigger was nasty. Note: I have not fired this gun yet.
.
However, when examining the firearm I see 2 points (note the uploaded image which is a stock sw photo) where I can see all the way through holes that
117332
look like they should have pins or screws in them.

Should I be able to see right through these 2 holes or did the gunsmith goof and not put it back together all the way?

There roll pins. Supposed to be there. If you have issues with them walking out. Put some blue loc-tite on them.

Those are swirly roll pins and yes being able to see through them is normal.

I would always suggest you try out your stock gun before making any changes to it. Even if you already made your mind up to make changes.

I can respect your advice. However thankfully I got a chance to try to stock trigger against the fully machined sear and it was no contest. The stock sear is crap. I dunno why.

I had heard that the performance center version still had the grindy, long-throw trigger. In truth, I live in California and I got super lucky getting this firearm. Serious lack of availability. I paid extra for the Fiber Optic sites, but ...I have some connections, would like to get tritium.

Nothing wrong with roll pins and they are less likely to walk out being they are usually slightly larger than the hole and spring action holds them in place versus a solid pin.
