Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 Flat-Faced Trigger Kit from Apex

This article was originally posted on

The Apex trigger for the Glock Gen 5 was almost ready before the Gen 5 itself, very impressive.

For the M&P 2.0 there is now an Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit, available for a MSRP of $169.95.

Apex has a really good description on their product page, and you can find the details below.

Applicable To What Gun(s)
Please note that this trigger works with the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 (9mm/.40S&W/.45ACP), including the M&P M2.0 Compact, only. It is NOT for the original M&P models.

“What It Does
The Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger Kit directly replaces the factory hinged trigger with a solid body aluminum trigger featuring a center mounted pivoting safety that maintains factory safety values. The trigger reduces pre-travel and over-travel from the factory trigger.

The Apex Forward Set Kit is engineered to provide the M&P M2.0 pistol owner with a smooth, consistent trigger pull with the advantages of shorter over-travel and shortened trigger reset. All of the components work together to provide a pull weight within the acceptable range for a top end, service pistol. The kit itself is designed to be drop-in and should not require further gunsmithing, however, armorer or gunsmith installation is recommended.
The full kit reduces trigger pull weight by up to 2 lbs. (approximately). Using a combination of the Apex springs and factory sear and trigger return springs allows the user to set the trigger pull weight within a range suitable for duty/carry down to a weight desired for competition.

Expected Results
Reduces overall trigger travel by approximately 40%
– Reduces trigger pull weight by up to 2 lbs. (approximately)
– Delivers crisp trigger break
– Smooths uptake and reset
– Reduces trigger over-travel
– Shortens reset length
– Center mounted pivoting safety maintains factory safety values

Apex provides a lot of videos on how to dis-assembly and assembly various handguns, which is always helpful. Below you can see the Apex M&P Trigger Body Install for the M&P.
