Apex Trigger, try before buy

Does anyone know of any place in the Phoenix area where a person might be able to try an M&P with an Apex Trigger before investing in the purchase and installation?

I would really like to do a comparison before investing the $$ and time in the shop. I know it isn't an outrageous expense like modifying a car, but the time and expense are significant in my circumstances.

I'd say your best bet is to go to some of the pistol competition in that area, if you see someone shooting a M&P talk to them between matches, be friendly, my personal experience is that gun competitors are very friendly and want to help in any way they can. It helps to make friends with them first.

As an alternative you might be able to meet someone from that area on this or some other gun board.

I have had an interest in prairie dog hunting for many years, there's another board that has sub boards by state, a discussion on that subject and a guy popped up from the Oklahoma panhandle, where they do have a problem with prairie dogs. Over a few months a friendship developed and ended up with several guys including me going there and he found places for us to hunt, we had a heck of a good time, we were invited back for 4 yrs in a row before he moved to another state. So these online things can develop into some very nice things if you give it a chance.

There is a gun indoor gun range in Mesa I used to live by that has a lot of hand guns to rent. Might give them a call and see if they have what your looking for. Also give scottsdale gun club a call, they have a large selection as well.

A competition as G56 mentioned or maybe a gun range would probably be your best bets.

Just curious about the try before you buy. What is it you're trying to check out?

Even if you only just replaced the OEM trigger with the APEX trigger, night and day difference with just the trigger. Thats a great place to start... then clean up the striker block hole, polish the flat step off the striker block, polish the trigger bar & loop. That will give a huge step up in the M&P trigger system, without breaking the bank so to speak. If your pretty handy, you could easily do all this work yourself, it is NOT hard to do. There are LOTS of youtube videos that can walk you right thru anything if you get in trouble. My advice, go watch some videos on youtube first. Apex has a few great videos on youtube as well. Why pay someone else alotta money for something YOU can do for nothing... and you`ll learn alot too.

Thanks for all the encouragement and recommendations. It turned out to be simpler than expected and I now have the 100-025 trigger installed. The over-travel has been reduced and reset is much more tactile. I am more than pleased with the product and the service I received from Apex.
Now, in my free time, I need to spend some time watching videos of polishing little pieces.

Shooters World Phoenix/Peoria and C2 Tactical have Apex triggers installed in their range guns. They'll let you try before you buy.
