APEX Releases Flat Trigger for S&W M&P Shield

    APEX, known for taking S&W’s original abysmal M&P trigger and tuning it to near perfection (in my opinion, their triggers are better than any Glock I shoot on a daily basis), has turned their attention to the small M&P Shield. The new flat-faced trigger is a stand-alone replacement for the stock Shield trigger (which is pretty good) and claims:

    • Reduce pull by about 2 lbs.
    • Reduces pre and over-travel.
    • Smooths out the pull
    • Maintain factory safety values

    For a listed retail of $79.95 for the trigger and $164 for the Duty/Carry kit, the triggers are relatively expensive compared to the base handgun they would install in, but it’s hard to put a price on being able to shoot more accurately, especially in a defensive situation.
