Overwatch Precision‘s primary offering has been Glock parts, most notably their “TAC” trigger kits. Last fall they even released a tongue-in-cheek seasonal “Pumpkin Spice” edition. Now Overwatch is expanding their offerings by bringing some of that TAC trigger goodness to several additional pistols. The lucky recipients will be the M&P Shield 2.0, the CZ P10C/S/F family, as well as Walther’s Q5 SF and PPQ series.
Coming in with a $159 MSRP, Overwatch’s Smith & Wesson offering is slated to release this month, January 2020. It will feature 7075 T6 shoe and safety construction, Mil-A-8625 hard coat anodizing, 316 stainless steel HD pins, pre-travel reduction, and a lightened break. It will also allow the OEM safeties to remain intact and be subject to Overwatch Precision’s lifetime warranty. According to the product description:
The OP Tac Trigger kit for S&W M&P Shield is a 4-piece trigger system upgrade for your 9mm and 40cal Shield 2.0. Inspired by the performance of their TAC trigger shoe for Glock handguns, the Shield kit utilizes the familiar TAC shoe design which adds a flat face for a linear, self-correcting rearward press. Other TAC features include a retention hook at the tip of the trigger for consistent finger placement and incorporates a custom trigger return spring to work with the TAC shoes pre-travel reduction. This kit is finished with our internally engineered NP3’ed sear, NP3’ed safety plunger, and OP plunger spring for a light and smooth pull making the Shield a top contender your deep concealment CCW pistol choice.
The CZ variant will cost less, with a $99 MSRP. It includes an improved striker, pictured below. Features include 7075T6 shoe and safety construction, Mil-A-8625 hard coat anodizing, a 316 stainless steel HD safety pin, and pre-travel reduction. It will also allow the OEM safeties to remain intact and be subject to Overwatch Precision’s lifetime warranty. The improved striker features 416SS Swiss machined construction, post-production stress relief for durability, is heat-treated to 45HRC, and NP3’ed for superior corrosion resistance and lifelong lubricity. The product description states:
The OP TAC Trigger kit for the CZ P10C/S/F includes our proven TAC trigger design and our new striker that reduces the trigger break by half a pound. Through improved striker geometry and NP3 coating, our Striker reduces the trigger break weight and removes the possibility of a light primer strike due to an unreliable aftermarket striker spring. The TAC trigger’s flat faced design provides a linear, self correcting, clean rearward press.
Last but not least, the Walther upgrade. Landing at the top of the range with a $199 MSRP, the Q5 SF/PPQ kit will come with a choice of two new, lighter return springs for competition or carry (3.8lb and 4.4lb), or you can opt to retain the factory spring if you prefer a slightly heavier 5+lb pull. It will also provide a 58% decrease in pre-travel and a 50% decrease in total travel. The product description reads:
Overwatch Precision’s TAC Trigger kit COMING SOON for Walther Q5 SF and PPQ pistols feature OP’s proven TAC trigger design. Included in the kit is a NP3’ed and CNC-tuned OEM bar complete with two different trigger return springs for the discerning shooter. Our Tac trigger aides in a self-correcting rearward press, short reset and an improvement on the best OEM trigger on the market. As with all OP triggers, the TAC kit comes with pretravel reduction and does not void any of the internal safeties.
So if you own one of these non-Glock handguns and want to enjoy some Overwatch Precision trigger magic, look for these new products soon. See you at the range!
