I don’t understand why pistol makers don’t put more effort into their triggers. Probably because they don’t have to. How many potential GLOCK buyers dry fire one of Gaston’s gats and say “Nope. Not for me. The trigger sucks.” Which, I have to say, it does. When I replaced my G19’s standard go-pedal with an $11.99 (plus gunsmithing) GHOST trigger connector, my Tupperware pistol was transformed. Why doesn’t something similar come standard? Money, money, money. MONEY!

That’s the same reason a box-fresh GLOCK will never perform like a GLOCK retrofitted with the new Apex Action Enhancement Kit. As the press release below reveals, the $129.95 package comes complete with their Factory Gen 3 Trigger Bar, Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger and the new Apex Performance Connector. If that combo does what an Apex trigger job does for Smith & Wesson’s less-than-ideal M&P triggers, it’s worth every penny. We’ll let you know.

PRESS RELEASE [via ammoland.com]

Apex Tactical Specialties, the industry leader in aftermarket drop-in performance parts for firearms, has expanded their line of Glock compatible parts with the release of the new Apex Action Enhancement Kit for Glock pistols.

The kit features the popular Apex Action Enhancement Trigger with Factory Gen 3 Trigger Bar, Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger and the new Apex Performance Connector, all for an MSRP of $129.95.

The new Apex Action Enhancement Kit replaces the factory polymer trigger with a black anodized aluminum trigger body featuring a center mounted pivoting safety.

The trigger reduces pre-travel and overall travel, shortens the reset, provides a smooth uptake and reset and delivers a crisp trigger break.

Installing the Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger provides a smoother trigger take-up than the factory plunger while maintaining proper safety function.

The addition of the Apex Performance Connector reduces the factory trigger pull weight by approximately one pound.

The new Action Enhancement Kit fits the following Glock model pistols: G17, G17L, G19, G22, G23, G24, G26, G27, G31, G32, G33, G34, G35. The Action Enhancement Kit is available now and can be ordered online directly from ApexTactical.com.

Features and Specifications:
– Direct drop-in replacement of factory polymer trigger, safety plunger and connector
– Reduces trigger pull weight by approximately one pound

20 Responses to New from Apex Tactical Specialties: Apex Action Enhancement Kit for GLOCKs

  1. It reduces overall travel AND the connector reduces the pull weight?

    Okay .. better do a 500rd test with the hardest primers after installation.

  2. I’ve Apexed both of my S&W EDCs and frankly, I can’t imagine carrying a Smith — any Smith — without an Apex trigger. The stroke is lighter, the reset is faster and overtravel is something done by Samantha Brown. Plus, both guns light every time without fail.

    If this Apex kit does for Glock what the kits do for S&W, it’s not just a winner, it’s a huge winner.

    • If Glock triggers were as bad as S&W triggers, then maybe…. The Apex makes a broken in M&P trigger usable again, coming from someone who has shot both.

      But then again I’m one of the lunatics that’s fine with the Glock trigger.

  3. Shorter travel AND lighter pull weight? Wow. Just wow. And could you describe the manual safety I am certain is included? Or is it simply a steel insert for your shoe?

  4. “I don’t understand why pistol makers don’t put more effort into their triggers. Probably because they don’t have to.”

    It’s likely because the majority of shooters don’t really care how a trigger ‘feels’.

    POTG on the other hand…

    • I know that a good trigger is a good thing. If I completely discounted the idea, I would have just picked up a super cheap LPK instead of paying up for Geiselle. That said…

      I’ve known plenty of people who could consistently make extremely impressive groups with bone stock guns that the entire internet assures me have terrible triggers. Sometimes hearing trigger snobs talk about what makes a “good” or “bad” trigger is like listening to a bad golfer talk about his $600 driver. Throw all the money at it you want, sometimes the issue isn’t with the equipment.

      The difference is that, most of the time, gun guys admit that the trigger is only part of the equation. Most golfers gripe that they can’t figure out why their short game didn’t improve after shelling out over a grand on a putter.

  5. Theres nothing wrong with the factory Glock trigger, it was designed by Gaston Glock to have all the proper combat attributes, balanced with safety. Anybody who thinks the Glock trigger “stinks” just doesnt get it. Glock offers factory connectors to increase or decrease trigger pull, but tinkering beyond that is like telling Bar Rafaeli her butt needs work.

    • Like anything else, it is mass-produced to meet certain specifications within a certain manufacturing cost. Better parts exist for those willing to pay for them.

      An entire industry is built on “better” aftermarket parts for Glocks.

    • Am I weird? I like the clicky Glock trigger, I like the positive reset. I like the XDS9 trigger. I Apex’d out my M&P9 so it feels like a lighter Glock trigger (I put in the heavy MA trigger spring to give me a warm safety fuzzy.) My G19 feels like a good carry trigger.

  6. I’m trying to figure out how replacing the safety plunger is going to affect the trigger. I realize part of what happens when you tickle the bang switch is push that thing out of the way, but still…

    I installed a Ghost Tactical connector + springs kit in my G26 and the difference is remarkable, though my pistol marksmanship still sucks. But it was about $26.00

    • The trigger bar engages the safety plunger out of the way when the trigger is pulled half way, so having those connections all super awesome and polished helps.

      Also, shooting the gun or at the very least, dry firing it, will also get the same result, with a savings of $129.99. YMMV. Just a non trigger snob’s opinion.

  7. Aren’t there legal ramifications of a defensive gun use if said gun has had its internals modified? That’s what concerns me.

    • I’ve heard the same thing from lawyers on defensive Pistols that have had the original manufacturer’s equipment replaced with aftermarket trigger components. Picture this on the stand a liberal Progressive lawyer telling the jury that you made this firearm into a killing machine by modifying the trigger weight. LOL but seriously could happen.

      • People have been repeating this for years, yet no one has ever been able to cite an instance of a prosecutor successfully using the argument.

        Still waiting for someone to site a case where a ‘modified’ firearm resulted/contributed to a conviction.

  8. Since Glock’s manufacturing cost is about $140 a gun anyway, according the documents filed in that lawsuit… there’s no way there’s going to be a great trigger in there.

    I think I read those court filings correctly… I am assuming that’s manufacturing cost, not loaded with marketing and delivery and so forth. Just the marginal cost to manufacture one more unit.

  9. No, Thank You. According to my targets, my Glock is fine.

    Yea,.. I’m in the “Don’t F@ck with Perfection” crowd.

    • Same here. I may do a little polishing with some smoothing sandpaper but that’s it. That just smooths the action, nothing more.
      My 21, 23 and 26 all had it done and beyond that, they’re stock. Well, sights too but that’s a different story.

  10. I have never had a problem with Glock triggers. They are consistent and I shoot Glocks consistently well. They aren’t the most accurate, that would be my PPQ or maybe my Makarov. Or my Tokarev (seriously, why are Russian pistols so freaking accurate?).

    But Glocks are accurate ENOUGH. I’m never displeased with my groups with my stock Glock triggers.

    I may get a trigger kit, I do have a couple of Glocks I’ve earmarked for tinkering with. But stock works.
