The Apex Forward Set Trigger decreases overtravel and lightens the trigger break.

Apex Tactical Specialties recently announced the expansion of its line of aftermarket parts for the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 pistols. The company just released a new curved version of its Forward Set Trigger Kit, specifically for M&P M2.0 pistols.

The company’s flat-faced Forward Set Trigger kit proved to be the best selling accessory upgrade for the pistol. Now Apex brings that same formula, but with a traditional curved trigger design. The upgraded reduces overtravel by 40-percent. It also delivers a crisp trigger break reminiscent of a single-action 1911, according to Apex Tactical.

The new Forward Set Trigger Kit fits M&P M2.0 models in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. This includes M2.0 Compact and Performance Center models.

The kit includes an aluminum hard-coat anodized Apex Forward Set Trigger with a center-mounted pivoting safety. It also includes an Apex Ultimate Striker Block Kit, Forward Set Sear Actuator and 2-Dot Sear. Meanwhile, the kit a 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 enables the user to se the trigger pull weight within a desired range, whether for carry or competition.
