Apex flat trigger

Hey guys/gals,

I'm new to the forum and to Sig, having recently picked up a P320 which I really like. I'm more accurate with it compared to my PPQM2. Today, I picked up an Apex trigger for it. First off, I don't know what kind of spring they are using in the installation video, but there is no way I could install it without a pair of needle nose pliers. Even with pliers, it was challenging. Anyway, it's in, but here is the rub...I prefer the feel of the stock trigger by a long shot. I really wanted to love the Apex as it looks awesome, but the stock trigger definitely feels better to me.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or, am I the only crazy one?

I just installed the Apex trigger yesterday and I was able to get it to install the spring without pliers, it was difficult though....

The feel of the stock trigger does feel better to me but the Apex trigger is growing on me. Also it feels like I'll be much more accurate with the Apex trigger because I'm able to get a smoother trigger pull.

I am also a newer P320c owner and don't know why anyone would want to change anything about the trigger setup. It's far and away better than my VP9 setup.

I've done it on two FCU's and broken both down twice for cleaning. Once you get the hang of it it's definitely able to be done with your fingers (get that thumbnail right up where it supposed to go in and tilt up then down).

FWIW...I went to the flat trigger because I've got flat face triggers on a number of my other firearms. I've heard arguments for flat face for 1911's (due to it's design and straight trigger pull...i.e. no hinge), but don't think it makes as big a difference for hinged trigger designs. For me it feels like it's a more consistent pull, but to each his own.

That spring is definitely the challenge of the install, but gets easier with experience. I found the Apex to be more comfortable as I was experiencing the "pinch" with the stock trigger.

I was the same way, I ended up preferring the trigger reach distance with the original contour. Went with a (new then) SIG Adverse trigger, which is an update of the original trigger.

I have the Apex trigger in my p320 and while I don't necessarily prefer the fact that the trigger is flat, I definitely prefer the increase in trigger reach that it gives. I have long fingers and am able to control the trigger squeeze better now with the Apex over the factory.

Similar here except it wasn't just a pinch but an actual bloody blister with the original trigger in less than a box of ammo.

If it hadn't been for the Apex trigger my 320 would have been gone in a hurry. Fortunately, the Apex fixed the problem and I still have it.

You are not the only one. They're pretty nice but unless it's the profile and feel you're after it is definitely not an essential upgrade (or side-grade, really).

Hey MO. Ive been looking but, what actually do s the "adverse" trigger do better? Or where do you notice that it is better?

I have both. Don't notice a real difference. Is the curve flatter ? I know the trigger piece itself fills the gap above triger space. And that it is solid on bottom tip

I just put the APEX Flat on my full size P320 just hourrs ago.... so after i shoot tomm i will give my input

There might be a 'hand-size' theme here -- I really like my Apex trigger because the reach/feel (to me) is superior to the stock trigger. Also, I also got the finger pinch from the stock trigger.

In my unscientific survey of comments by Apex trigger fans, it seems the majority of are large handed. To me, the combo of the large grip with the flatty fits my ham-fists to a tee.

Only real difference from stock is that vibration that was giving people some trigger sting, including myself, is gone. The contour and reach is the same, which I find perfect.

Have an Apex on my 320C and find it terrific. I have large hands and use a medium size grip. Feels very smooth and my groupings are more what I expected.

Shoot safely!

I prefer it over the factory. Feels more consistent with the added leverage. I rotate my FCU between 3 kits, FS, Compact and Sub.
