A mandatory safety recall was issued on April 19th, 2022 by Apex Tactical Specialties regarding a limited amount of their Apex Action Enhancement Kits for slim frame Glock pistols like the Glock 43, Glock 43X, and the Glock 48. The issue with these flawed trigger kits is that some of the trigger bars (which are manufactured by Apex and not Glock) are out of spec and can cause a failure to reset the trigger after firing. Apex is asking that customers who have purchased an Apex Action Enhancement Kit for their Glock pistol between October 2021 and March 2022 immediately cease using their trigger kit and visit ApexTactical.com to arrange for an immediate replacement at no cost to the customer. Full details and relevant links regarding the Glock Apex Enhancement Kit recall are posted below.

Safety Recall Issued for Slim Frame Glock Apex Action Enhancement Kits
Apex Tactical Specialties announces a mandatory recall of a limited number of Apex Action Enhancement Kits for the Slim Frame Glock pistols sold between between October 2021 through March 2022. These specific kits are assembled with an Apex in-house manufactured trigger bar – NOT a Glock factory trigger bar – and were sold through Apex’s dealer and distributor network.
Apex has identified an issue with the Apex trigger bar where under certain circumstances the dimensions of the trigger bar are out of spec resulting in a failure to reset the trigger.
Apex is instructing customers to discontinue the use of these trigger kits, part numbers 102-117 (Black) and 102-157 (Red), and contact Apex Tactical Specialties to return the affected kits for replacement.
Please note that Apex kits assembled with a Glock made factory trigger bar and sold prior the identified timeframe are NOT at issue and not subject to the recall. Apex’s ‘No Bar’ kits, part numbers 102-114 and 102-154, are also NOT at issue.
Only those kits featuring the Apex in-house manufactured trigger bars are being recalled. (see identifying photos below)
April 2022 Apex SAFETY RECALL
Apex Action Enhancement Kits for the Slim Frame Glock pistols
All Apex kits (102-117 and 102-157) sold through distribution between October 2021 and March 2022, are affected by this recall. Therefore, Apex customers that purchased either kit are asked to please visit the Apex Slim Frame Kit Safety Recall webpage for detailed instructions on returning the trigger kit for replacement.
Note: Please do not ship any affected product to Apex Tactical Specialties until an RMA and shipping label has been generated by Apex and sent to you. In the interim, Apex asks that customers remove the Apex kit and return their pistol to the factory configuration.
The pictures above and below demonstrate how to tell the differences between an Apex manufactured trigger bar and a Glock factory trigger bar. Glock trigger bars will have two small recess cuts out of the length of the right-hand side of the trigger bar and will also feature a serial number stamped on the top side of the trigger bar that interacts with the striker as the pistol cycles. Let us know if you’ve purchased one of these aftermarket enhancement kits from Apex and if you’ve personally encountered any problems with any of their products before. Stay safe out there everyone!
