OK I have just got done doing my M&P Shield with a APEX Kit and my M&P 45 with a APEX Kit, here's what I have:


I checked my trigger pull on my Shield and it was at 11.5 Lbs (Ma gun).

After I installed everything but the trigger spring I rechecked it, I was down to 7.5 Lb's...

I had heard of the pull being different if you didn't install the trigger spring, I thought it was the other way around than what it turned out to be...

I took it apart again and added the APEX trigger spring, I than put everything back together and rechecked the trigger poundage.

I am down to 6.5 Lbs now...


So the APEX will give a Mass gun a 6.5 Lb trigger and it feels real good... It's not gritty, it pulls reel smooth, in short I like it...

I would think that once I get out and shoot it some the trigger poundage will come down some more...

I'll get out to shoot it soon and let you all know how it works...

.

OK just got done doing my (Ma) M&P 45...

Stock Trigger... 10 Lbs

APEX Kit with stock M&P trigger spring... 6.5 Lbs

APEX Kit with APEX trigger spring... 5.25 Lbs

Very nice feel to that one also...


.

Just thought that you folks that were thinking of doing a APEX Kit would like to know what you get, or at least what I got so you can decide to do a APEX Kit or a Gun Smith Trigger Job...

I'm not trying to take any work away from a gun smith, I love the work that Greg Derr has done for me... I just hated the all day drive to him and than home, so I wanted to try and do a few APEX trigger jobs myself... It wasn't that hard to do either...

Good Luck on yours...

Try the AEK trigger on your 45. I like it a lot.
Ya I love it so far, I haven't gotten out to shoot it yet though...

I may go out back a shoot a few tomorow to try it out...

I replaced the sights also so I want to get to my club (indoor range) so I can adjust them the rest of the way...

I have to admit, after installing the AEK trigger on my mid-size 45, I didn't feel up to shooting the damn thing either! Maybe soon...
