New J-Frame Kit – Press Release

New J-Frame Enhancement Kit from Apex Tactical

LOS OSO, Calif. – Apex Tactical Specialties, Inc. (ATS) announced the pending release of their new J-Frame Duty/Carry Kit. Keeping with their present product lines, the Duty/Carry J-Frame kit is a drop in that reduces trigger pull weight and maintains absolute reliability for carry applications.

Boasting a trigger pull just over 9lbs, the Apex J-Frame kit is a must have for armed professionals who prefer their backup guns have a more easily managed trigger pull. The kit is available for all .38 and .357 caliber modern J-Frame revolvers with the frame mounted firing pin.

“Fine tuning the J-Frame is something we’ve been perfecting for years,” said Scott Folk, vice president of Apex Tactical. “Enhancing the trigger pull with the new J-Frame Duty/Carry Kit should greatly improve the shootability of the J-Frame revolver.”

The J-Frame Duty/Carry Kit will be released at the NRA Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa. on April 29th and will be available through MidwayUSA and Brownells, as well as others.

    Will this work in my wife’s 432PD, 32 H&R Mag.?? It would be nice to cut the pull down a bit. How difficult to install or is it a gunsmith job? Thanks, Tom

    For the moment, I’m going to have to say no. We have yet to test the kits in anything other than the center fire 38 calibers. We’ll post about it when we come up with a kit that works for the other calibers.

    So was the M&P 340 the mule for the test?

    The kit was released yesterday at the NRA show and it’s been a great success. And yes, the 340 in the pic is Jerry’s gun we used for T&E.

    Can this kit be used in the S&W Bodyguard 38?

    I just bought the kit to put in my older Model 442 – one of the nickel ones. I put in the slide spring and main spring, but when I went to do the firing pin I saw that on my model there is an external pin that looks like it holds in the firing pin. Will the pin/spring for this kit work for my gun?

    I installed this kit in my M&P 340 and one in my wife’s 442. Trigger is lighter now, but not too light. Very easy to install. I would definitely recommend this kit. It was recommended that you use a rebound slide spring tool. It was no problem to install using a small screwdriver. Happy Shooting!

    No, it cannot.
