PEORIA, Ariz. – Apex Tactical Specialties announced that it has been awarded another patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, this time for a “sear system for a firearm” covering the company’s Forward Set Trigger products designed for use in the M&P M2.0 model pistols from Smith & Wesson.

Covered by U.S. patent number 10,422,602, the Apex Forward Set Trigger Kit for the M&P M2.0 is a drop-in aftermarket upgrade engineered to reduce total trigger travel creating a more responsive trigger in a striker-fire pistol and, just like with its previous patent for the Apex Forward Set Sear and Trigger kit for the original M&P, delivers trigger performance reminiscent of the trigger feel in a single-action pistol.

“Our goals in designing the Forward Set Trigger system for the M&P M2.0 were to provide a significant improvement in trigger pull characteristics over factory performance, maintain factory safety values and give our customers the replacement trigger they had been clamoring for since Smith & Wesson announced the new M&P model,” explained Randy Lee, CEO and founder of Apex Tactical Specialties.

Apex offers a couple versions of its Forward Set Trigger Kit for the M&P M2.0, including one with a black trigger (part #100-154), one with a red trigger (part #100-153), an FDE trigger option (part #100-159), a Thin Blue Line Series trigger with a blue center-mounted pivoting safety sold to raise money for Concerns of Police Survivors (part #100-B154), and Freedom Edition variants laser engraved with a flag motif. All of which can be ordered directly from
