Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set TriggerLOS OSOS, Calif. – Apex Tactical Specialties announced the release and immediate availability of the new Flat-Faced Forward Set Sear & Trigger Kit. Previewed at the 2014 NRA Show in Indianapolis, the design of the Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger was extremely popular with customers who were looking to replicate the feel of a flat 1911 type trigger but in an M&P pistol.

“Following on the success and popularity of our Forward Set Trigger, we looked to further increase the performance of the M&P’s fire control system with a trigger profile closer to what 1911 shooters experience. The new Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger delivers a feel and performance of a factory 1911 type trigger at an approximate weight of 4.0 to 5.0 lbs,” explained Randy Lee, president at Apex Tactical Specialties.

Designed to work in any Smith & Wesson M&P model pistol in a centerfire caliber, the Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Sear & Trigger Kit reduces trigger pre-travel and over-travel, while allowing the shooter to position their finger at an increased leverage point lower on the trigger face to take advantage of lower trigger pull weights.

Included in the full kit are the Apex Forward Set Sear which shortens the stroke of the trigger by dropping the striker at a point farther forward than the factory sear. The Ultimate Striker Block produces a smoother trigger pull and eliminates most false reset issues through an improved radius on the striker block face. The Forward Set Spring Kit produces a trigger pull of 4.0 to 5.0 lbs (depending on trigger return spring installed).

The new Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Sear & Trigger Kit, part #100-054, retails for $169.95 and is available now at ApexTactical.com, Brownells.com, G&R Tactical and Speed Shooter Specialties.

Customers who already have an Apex Forward Set Trigger Kit installed in their M&P and want to install the new Flat-Faced Trigger should contact Apex Tactical Specialties at (805) 528-5250 or guns@apextactical.com for options.
