Apex Tactical Competition Action Kit - Hands on Review
Good Stuff: When they say this kit drops the trigger pull to a smooth, crisp 2.5lbs they are not elaborating in any way shape or form. Mine weighed in at a consistent 2.65, but the smoothness of it caught me off guard to a point I thought impossible. It feels impossibly light.
I don't think it has tightened up my groups at all, but the speed with which I can dish them out is dramatically enhanced. We're not talking a matter of milliseconds, we're talking whole seconds.
The bad stuff: As with all M&P's, the length of the trigger pull continues to be a pain in the ass. Now that Apex has brought their Forward-Set Sear to market, I may have to look into it as further improvement over my current set up.
Overall: Not bad at all. Makes the M&P trigger pull a dream at the range. As the manufacturer cautions, don't EVER EVER EVER try to conceal carry a firearm with this modification on it. I haven't had any issues at the range, but under stress in the real world you sure as hell don't want this light of a trigger. May be overshadowed by the Apex FSS kit, but that doesn't mean this is a bad product.
