Apex trigger kit

I ordered an apex trigger setup for my M&P 9mm full-size. Have any of you installed this? If so, how does your weapon handle and fire now? I spent over 100.00 for it. When it arrives I'll install it. I'm curious as to what any of you have to say about it. Thanks.

Welcome from Wisconsin, Tim!

I left my triggers completely stock. Since my FS M&P40 & 40 Compact are carried for self defense I like the triggers just as they are. If I was involved in competition I'd definitely get an Apex.

Welcome!

I moved your post to a more appropriate forum for a technical question.

I had the Apex kit with trigger installed in my Shield and I love it. The factory trigger wasn't too bad but the Apex is really nice.

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Of course it depends on which kit you bought, but all the Apex kits are great!

My personal favorite is the FSS Trigger Kit. Very 1911ish in feel and takeup! I put it in my FS .40 Pro Series. I think you'll enjoy it. I don't think I've ever heard anyone regret the decision to install one.

On my M&P40 full size I had the APEX Duty/Carry Action Enhancement Kit (DCAEK) which was great love it. But I still didn't like the trigger it self. So I got the Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit installed now this trigger was amazing. The best trigger I've ever felt almost like 1911 but not. Anything from APEX is Tier 1 quality and reliability.

Really like mine. Much better than the stock trigger. I use Apex parts on all my M&Ps. I've yet to experience a reliability issue.

Thanks.
I purchased the spring set with trigger and forward set sear.
Install is super easy (watch a few youtube videos).
Worth every dollar!

Just purchased my Apex M&P Aluminum Forward Set Sear & Trigger Kit yesterday when my buddy Chester at I-5 guns in Lacey Washington told me if I hurried up, he'd install it all for me in less than 20 minutes. It was a done deal and within the hour from when I called him to check on some unrelated issues I was back at home with my new trigger a sweet little K Rounds OWB Kydex pancake on 1.75" beltloops and a sweet I5Guns sticker for the safe. Good Job Chester.
