What It Does
This kit is a combination of the Apex Duty/Carry Kit for the M&P Shield and the Apex Action Enhancement Trigger for the M&P Shield. The Trigger Kit directly replaces the factory hinged trigger with a solid aluminum trigger body which reduces pre-travel and over-travel by approximately 20%. It features a smooth face with a center mounted pivoting safety that maintains factory safety values.
The Apex Duty/Carry Kit was designed to provide the M&P Shield pistol owner a smooth, consistent trigger pull that is approximately 2 lbs lighter (based on variations in factory tolerances) with the advantages of shorter over-travel and more detectable trigger reset. However, armorer or gunsmith installation of the Ultimate Striker Block (USB) into the Shield slide is strongly recommended**.

If you are interested in a replacement trigger for the M&P Shield, please see the Shield Duty/Carry Action Enhancement Trigger and Kit. For further information regarding the trigger itself, please see Shield Action Enhancement Trigger.
**The Shield sight removal in order to install the USB Kit is extremely difficult. Removal requires delicate precision so as not to damage the sights or slide. We highly recommend having a competent gunsmith perform this task.
