Apex Announces Flat-Faced Trigger for Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0

PEORIA, Ariz. – Apex Tactical Specialties announced the upcoming release on Monday, November 20 of their long awaited Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit for the M&P M2.0.

Known for their innovative work transforming striker-fired trigger systems, Apex’s patent pending trigger kit design for the M2.0 reduces overall trigger travel by 40% while delivering a crisp trigger break reminiscent of that in a single action 1911 pistol.

The new Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit is designed specifically for use in the M&P M2.0 and will work in all current models in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP calibers, including the recently released M2.0 Compact.

The kit includes an aluminum hard-coat anodized Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger with a center mounted pivoting safety, an Apex Ultimate Striker Block Kit, an Apex Forward Set Sear Actuator, Apex Fully Machined 2-Dot Sear and the Apex Forward Set Spring Kit which includes Duty/Carry Sear and Trigger Return Springs and Heavy Weight Sear and Trigger Return Springs.

Using a combination of the Apex springs and factory sear and trigger return springs allows the user to set the trigger pull weight within a range suitable for duty/carry down to a weight desired for competition.

The new Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit for the M&P M2.0 will begin shipping on Monday, November 20 and has an MSRP of $169.95.

Dealers and distributors wishing to stock the new trigger kit can contact Apex at dealer@apextactical.com or (623) 322-0200 for pricing and quantity availability.

    Will this trigger work on the sd9 ve ?

  8. paul - November 9, 2017 @ 9:28 am

    No, not at all. This trigger kit is specifically for the M&P M2.0. It does not work in any of the other S&W pistols.

  9. DSmith - November 10, 2017 @ 3:10 am

    I recently bought the action enhancement kit for my 2.0 compact, is there an upgrade option for those who already have the enhacement kit or a trade-in option in order to get this instead?

  10. paul - November 10, 2017 @ 2:01 pm

    No there is not.
