Apex Announces Available Upgrades For New M&P M2.0

PEORIA, Ariz. – Apex Tactical Specialties, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket drop-in firearms parts, announces available Apex upgrades for the new M&P M2.0 from Smith & Wesson.

“We’ve been working with the new M&P M2.0 pistol and are pleased to announce that several of our existing parts designed for the M&P are compatible in the new M&P M2.0, in 9mm and .40S&W, and deliver the kind of performance upgrade customers have come to expect from Apex,” said Scott Folk, vice president of Apex Tactical Specialties.

The Apex Action Enhancement Trigger, in either Polymer (#100-025) or Aluminum (#100-064), replaces the factory hinged trigger for a more ergonomic and responsive trigger featuring a center-mounted pivoting safety. When combined with the Apex Action Enhancement Kit (#100-062), the result is a smoother, lighter trigger pull with an overall reduction in trigger travel of approximately 30%.


“In addition to improving trigger performance with upgrades to the fire control components, our patent pending Apex Grade 9mm Barrels, originally designed for the M&P, fit the new M&P M2.0 allowing for greater accuracy than what is achievable in the stock configuration,” noted Randy Lee, founder and CEO of Apex Tactical Specialties, who designed and developed the Apex Grade Barrel.

The list of Apex parts compatible with the new M&P M2.0, and currently available, are as follows:

100-025 Apex Polymer Action Enhancement Trigger (100-126)*

100-064 Apex Aluminum Action Enhancement Trigger (100-179)*

100-062 Apex Duty/Carry Action Enhancement Kit

100-066 Apex Duty/Carry Spring Kit

100-063 Apex Fully Machined Sear

100-075 Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger

100-036 Apex 10-8 Performance Base Pads

105-050 Apex Grade 9mm Gunsmith Fit Barrel – 5.00”

105-051 Apex Grade 9mm Gunsmith Fit Barrel – 4.25”

105-052 Apex Grade 9mm Semi Drop-In Barrel – 5.00”

105-053 Apex Grade 9mm Semi Drop-In Barrel – 4.25”

105-058 Apex Grade 9mm Threaded Gunsmith Fit Barrel – 5.00”

105-059 Apex Grade 9mm Threaded Gunsmith Fit Barrel – 4.25”

105-060 Apex Grade 9mm Threaded Semi Drop-In Barrel – 5.00”

105-061 Apex Grade 9mm Threaded Semi Drop-In Barrel – 4.25”

Apex will continue development of additional replacement parts for the new M&P M2.0, including work on adapting their patented Forward Set Sear and Trigger system which does not currently function in the M2.0 but is one of the most popular upgrades available for the original M&P line of centerfire pistols.

    9mm in the M&P is the caliber with the biggest accuracy issues. That is what needed to be addressed.

    What magwell is that? I am looking for that does the 2.0. It’s not listed on your site

  3. paul - November 14, 2017 @ 1:38 pm

    We do not make magwells. Check Speed Shooter Specialties.

    I just bought a 2.0 40 cal with the hope if finding a drop in .357 Sig barrel. Do you make one?

  5. paul - November 15, 2017 @ 9:39 am

    Unfortunately, we do not. Only the 9mm and 40-to-9 conversion barrels.

    Can the Action Enhancement Trigger (100-025) be safely installed on the M&P M2.0 Compact without the Duty/Carry kit? I believe I read someone was able to install the trigger with the stock M2.0 sear with no problems.

  7. paul - November 20, 2017 @ 3:24 pm

    You are very likely to run into problems running the trigger without the sear. You want to order the 100-126 kit if you want to run a Duty/Carry set up.

  8. Jaron - November 29, 2017 @ 5:40 pm

    I have a 2.0 compact is there a threaded barrel offered for the compact yet, and if not when can we expect to see one?

  9. paul - December 4, 2017 @ 2:52 pm

    Not yet and we do not have a time frame for a Threaded M2.0 Compact barrel.
