Upgrade Your M&P Shield With Apex Trigger Kits

APEX100051

LOS OSOS, Calif. – With over 1 million pistols produced in just a few short years, the M&P Shield is one of the most popular models Smith & Wesson has introduced, and, thanks to three trigger options from Apex Tactical Specialties, one of the most popular concealed carry models available.

Known for designing fire control system upgrades for a variety of Smith & Wesson pistols, including those from the Performance Center, Apex offers drop-in aftermarket trigger kits M&P Shield owners can install themselves.

Apex kits for the M&P Shield directly replace the factory hinged trigger with a solid aluminum trigger body featuring a center mounted pivoting safety that maintains factory safety values. The kits reduce pre-travel and over-travel by approximately 20%, and provide the M&P Shield pistol owner a smooth, consistent trigger pull that is approximately 2 lbs lighter (based on variations in factory tolerances) with the advantage of a more detectable trigger reset.

“Our kits for the M&P Shield are among the most popular we offer. In fact, at last year’s NRA Show in Nashville we sold out of Shield kits halfway through the show. Regardless of which option customers go with, nearly all find the Apex upgrade to be a night and day difference over the factory trigger,” said Scott Folk, vice president of Apex.

Apex Action Enhancement Trigger & Duty/Carry Kit options for the M&P Shield include:

Apex Action Enhancement Trigger and Duty/Carry Kit for the M&P Shield (MSRP $159.95)

Apex Red Anodized Action Enhancement Trigger and Duty/Carry Kit for the M&P Shield (MSRP $164.95)

– Apex Flat-Faced Action Enhancement Trigger and Duty/Carry Kit for the M&P Shield (MSRP $164.95)

While Apex offers full kit options featuring both the Action Enhancement Trigger and the Duty/Carry Kit, the two can be purchased separately and installed independently of each other.

The Duty/Carry Kit for the M&P Shield (MSRP $92.95) reduces trigger pull weight by approximately 2 lbs and delivers a smooth, consistent trigger with shorter over-travel and a more noticeable trigger reset.

The Action Enhancement Trigger for the M&P Shield when installed by itself reduces pre-travel and over-travel by approximately 20%. The aluminum body replaces the factory hinged polymer trigger and is available in Black (MSRP $76.95), Red (MSRP $79.95) or Flat-Faced (MSRP $79.95).

    You can install just the Duty/Carry Kit to work with the factory hinged trigger, if you’d like.

    I have a.40 M & P Shield with the safety on the slide. What trigger kit would I need to lighten trigger pull.

    You want to look at one of the full trigger w/ duty/carry kit options. These are the most popular and provide the greatest improvement. The color options for the curved trigger version are listed below.

    100-051 Black
    100-056 Red
    100-136 Purple
    100-138 Blue

    Am I to understand that he factory is #10s? If so that would make your trigger #8s right? I have a compact s+w with your trigger it is approx 3 1/2 # i also have a 9 pro same thing. How come the shield trigger is so heavy?? I now have a 40 shield I want to put a apex on it also but I would like about #4 trigger, help me out here.

    Where did you get 10# from? Our kit, when installed completely, sets the trigger pull to right around 5 to 5.5 lbs. If you want to go down to 4, you can use the factory springs.

    Are the triggers and kits equally compatible with the shield 1.0 and 2.0?

  9. paul - September 21, 2018 @ 12:04 pm

    No. The Shield 2.0 has a different trigger kit. You can find it in its own section in our webstore.
