New Trigger From Apex

    Apex Tactical says their mission is simple: to create superior products that perform to extraordinary levels. In their pursuit of excellence they’ve patented a new trigger, one designed to improve the performance of striker-fired triggers. It’s their third patent, and with the increase in striker-fired pistols from companies that didn’t previously manufacture them it does seem to be a good marketing move. Personally I’d love to find out how their new trigger performs, and I know just the gun to try it in…


    From Apex:

    Apex Tactical Specialties announced that it has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a “firing mechanism for a firearm” covering the company’s Forward Set Sear and Trigger products.

    Covered by U.S. patent number 8,863,425, the Apex Forward Set Sear and Trigger is designed to reduce total trigger travel creating a more responsive trigger in a striker-fire pistol, and one reminiscent of the trigger feel in a single-action pistol.

    This is the third patent Apex has received. “

    Since the introduction of our Forward Set Sear and Trigger system it has been one of our most popular upgrades for the Smith & Wesson M&P series of pistols. The improvement in the trigger pull experience over a factory system is significant, and for many customers it is what defines an Apex upgrade,” explained Randy Lee, president at Apex Tactical Specialties and the designer of the Forward Set Sear and Trigger system.

    Apex Forward Set Sear and Triggers are available from,, MidwayUSA and local firearms dealer.
