The Springfield Hellcat has proven a popular choice for concealed carry pistols since its release. The Hellcat features either an 11+1 flush fit magazine or a 13+1 extended magazine depending on what you choose to carry. Apex Tactical has just released its new Action Enhancement Trigger for the Springfield Hellcat which is said to significantly improve the trigger pull for the micro-compact pistol.
New Action Enhancement Trigger for the Springfield Hellcat by Apex Tactical
I’ve had extensive first-hand experience with Apex Tacticals products and they do make a huge difference in the trigger department. Apex’s Action Enhancement Trigger Kit for the S&W M&P9 allowed me to use my daily carry for competition as well by providing two different triggers pull weights which made it safe to carry when I wasn’t on the range competing. Even without the reduction in trigger pull weight, the kit reduces overall travel and reset distance which translates to quicker follow up shots.
Apex Tactical Specialties full press release on the Springfield Hellcat Action Enhancement Trigger is below:
PEORIA, Ariz. – Apex Tactical Specialties is pleased to announce the introduction and upcoming release of its new Action Enhancement Trigger for the hugely popular Hellcat pistol from Springfield Armory. Starting at just $79.95, the package includes an Apex Action Enhancement Trigger, Apex Sear Spring and Apex Striker Spring, which, when installed, significantly improves the feel of the trigger pull while reducing trigger travel and pull weight to that appropriate for a duty or carry pistol.
Apex’s engineering and design team developed the Action Enhancement Trigger as a direct drop-in replacement of the factory polymer trigger and springs of the Hellcat. The new trigger will be available in Black, Red, Thin Blue Line, and Black anodized Freedom Edition versions. Pre-ordering will begin soon.

For what my opinion is worth, this is one of the best out of the box upgrades for any pistol that I could recommend. With the 5lb trigger pull, this would make the pistol safe to carry and should also improve the user’s shooting experience.
