All of the benefits of Apex Tactical’s outstanding trigger kits, at a reduced price.

Apex Tactical Glock Trigger

Apex Tactical Inc. is releasing a new series of cost-effective, trigger-upgrade kits for third and fourth generation Glock pistols. The Polymer Action Enhancement trigger kit offers the same performance upgrade as the original Apex Action Enhancement kits, but at a reduced price because Apex Tactical has substituted certain metal parts in the kit with polymer parts in order to keep costs down. This does not affect the performance benefits of the Polymer Action Enhancement kit in any way.

Instead, when you install the Polymer Action Enhancement kit in your third or fourth generation Glock pistol, you will immediately perceive a more crisp trigger break, a smoother uptake, a smoother and shorter reset, and a reduced trigger pull weight by approximately one pound. In addition, the trigger will travel less when breaking the shot and during reset. Most importantly, none of the Glock factory safety specifications are compromised upon installation; these trigger enhancement kits are designed to meet or exceed these safety values of your stock pistol. Furthermore, because they are  all drop-in ready, all of the components of this kit are easily installed without having to call a gunsmith.

The Apex Tactical Polymer Action Enhancement kit includes the Polymer Action Enhancement Trigger with a Gen 3 trigger bar, an Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger and an Apex Performance Connector. The Polymer Action Enhancement is compatible with virtually all third and fourth generation Glock 9 mm, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG model pistols. Glock pistols models that are built around larger calibers, such as .45 ACP, .45 GAP, or 10mm Auto, are not compatible with this kit due to their larger frame dimensions.

For more information on the Polymer Action Enhancement kit which has a suggested retail price of $90 and other shooting accessories sold by Apex Tactical Inc, please visit their website at
