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.

*Updated: Use of the Action Enhancement Triggers required the 2-Dot Sear. Kits 100-126 and 100-179 are the combined Trigger and Duty/Carry Kit.

    Great news! Glad to see the M2.0 getting the same support and upgrades as the original M&P!

  2. Darrin Raymond - January 21, 2017 @ 9:29 pm

    Does the new 2.0 eliminate the early unlocking issue that plagued the early m&p models and hindered accuracy?

  3. paul - January 30, 2017 @ 10:38 am

    Somewhat but still does not perform as accurately as the Apex Grade Barrel.

  4. Carlos - February 5, 2017 @ 10:08 am

    Who makes the magwell that is in the picture?

  5. paul - February 8, 2017 @ 10:23 am

    Speed Shooters Specialties

  6. Donnie - February 12, 2017 @ 9:04 am

    Any idea when the forward set trigger and 3lb spring set will be available for the 2.0. Trigger is horrible compared to my Apex enhanced PC Core.

  7. Max - February 15, 2017 @ 5:32 pm

    I hope Forward Set Sear and Trigger system for M 2.0 be available soon.

  8. paul - February 28, 2017 @ 7:27 am

    No date is set for release of the Forward Set Flatty for the M&P M2.0. It is being worked on right now. When we have a release date we will announce it here on our blog, on Facebook and Instagram. We’ll also announce it in our weekly email newsletter.

  9. Hutch - February 28, 2017 @ 7:44 pm

    How long before you will have 9mm conversion barrels for the 5 and 4.25 MP 40 M2.0?

  10. Mark Grandaw - March 4, 2017 @ 8:29 pm

    I just purchased a M&P 40 M2.0 and don’t really like the trigger. I have the compact with one of your trigger kits that is really nice. How can I get the same in the 2.0? It’s a little under 5lbs.

  11. paul - March 6, 2017 @ 3:23 pm

    Your can upgrade with the Action Enhancement Trigger & Duty/Carry Kit, which is available now. https://store.apextactical.com/WebDirect/Products/Details/192528

  12. paul - March 6, 2017 @ 3:25 pm

    40S&W to 9mm Apex Grade Conversion Barrels are available now.

  13. Thomas - March 23, 2017 @ 1:30 pm

    Can you clarify for me please. Do you have a Sig .357 barrel that will drop into an M2.0 40SW frame? Thanks in advance.

  14. paul - March 23, 2017 @ 1:32 pm

    We have 9mm barrels only.

  15. Alan Pratt - March 29, 2017 @ 8:56 am

    When will the videos for installing the 2.0 action kits be available? How close are the videos for the original M&Ps?

  16. paul - March 29, 2017 @ 7:04 pm

    We are hoping to have that done within the next two to three weeks, along with on overview of the M2.0 Forward Set Flatty Trigger Kit and how to install it.

  17. Bob Wiley - April 6, 2017 @ 8:35 am

    Forward set flatty! I’m not a slacker! Please! Gimme! Gimme gimme! I need, I need, I need! Gimme gimme!

  18. paul - April 10, 2017 @ 8:47 am

    It is being worked on now.

  19. John - May 16, 2017 @ 4:01 pm

    Where can I find a threaded barrel for my M&p m2.0 fde 5inch barrel 40 SW

  20. Don - May 20, 2017 @ 8:15 pm

    When will you do a 40 barrel?

  21. J. Smith - May 23, 2017 @ 6:28 am

    For competition only, will the 100-072 Competition kit work in a M&P M2.0 9mm? Have used the Competition kit in M1.0 and it makes a world of difference getting the trigger pull down close to a competition level
    If 100-072 will not install into M2.0, when will a 2.0 competition kit be available/?

  22. Don - May 24, 2017 @ 11:39 am

    What can I expect trigger pull to be after installing 100-062 in my 2.0 CORE 9MM S&W M&P pistol

  23. Adam - May 26, 2017 @ 6:21 pm

    When will the competition trigger be available for the 2.0?

  24. Don - May 28, 2017 @ 9:38 pm

    40 barrel?

  25. Kyle - June 6, 2017 @ 10:20 pm

    How about an update on the flat faced trigger for the m 2.0. Is there an ETA on when it will be available for purchase?

  26. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:35 am

    No firm ETA yet.

  27. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:41 am

    Not at this time. Just the 40/9 Conversion Barrel.

  28. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:42 am

    It is being worked on now but no firm release date is set.

  29. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:44 am

    As noted on our website:

    Expected Results
    – Reduces over-travel
    – Smooths trigger pull
    – Keeps pistol at a safe 5-5.5 lb trigger pull weight for Duty/Carry applications

    The final results will be dependent on the original pull weight of the particular pistol and the associated factory tolerances.

  30. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:51 am

    You will want to try 100-060, BUT use the factory trigger return spring. The M2.0 takes our 2-Dot Fully Machined Sear (this the M&P 45 nomenclature on the product description).


  31. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:51 am

    Not yet but probably down the road.

  32. paul - June 8, 2017 @ 10:53 am

    We only offer a 9mm Threaded Barrel at this time.
