Thanks to Apex Tactical

I wanted to share my experience regarding Apex Tactical. As many may know, this company is a source for after-market quality parts for several firearms, especially the Smith & Wesson M&P lines. I have installed several Action Enhancement Kits and triggers. Have been completely satisfied with results and any minor company support on technical issues. I have a M&P 5" Pro that I use for IDPA, etc. I thought I would install the semi-drop in barrel which requires 'a little' customizing. Well I had nothing but trouble....primarily mis-fires, lite primer strikes with factory and reloads. After several conversations with Apex staff they asked that I send the gun to them. They would 'make it right' and I would be charged for shipping and ammo only; no gunsmithing charges. So I did.

Of course the M&P line was never known as an out-of-the-box tack-driver. The early models like mine were especially unkind to accuracy. My gun was in their shop for several months, and I imagine it was more difficult than most to rectify the issue(s). Anyway, it is my understanding they did a gunsmith fitted barrel, test firing, shipping and a T-shirt to boot all on their dime. They say you can't rush quality and below is the proof: this is at 25yds, machine rest, 10 shot, 1.56" group.

Thanks Apex

The time out of service is a bit shocking, but you sure can't complain about the results!

That's very good to know. No wonder their gunsmithing is fully booked, or it was last I heard.

Thanks Apex
Chances, you said you've installed multiple apex kits. Have you noticed any variance in the trigger pull between them? I installed the trigger in my m&p 45 a couple of weeks ago and love it. I decided to do my wife's m&p 9 tonight and noticed her trigger is about a pound heavier. Is there some variance or did I mess something up?
