For me it was simply. Under recoil on my P320 compact the stock trigger pinched my finger between the bottom of the trigger and the bottom of the trigger guard. I would have a big bloody blister in less than a box of ammunition.

I like the gun well enough to buy the aftermarket Apex trigger and give it a try. Problem solved. I like the feel of the Apex better, the looks of it better and no more bloody blister. For me, the Apex is better in every way.

I have never like the shape of the Sig factory trigger on the ones I have owned. It's sharp pointy bottom just doesn't like my hand. The "thin" trigger, like on the P229 M11-A1 Compact, causes me less grief than the "thicker" one on the P229 Nitron Compact and the P320.

That's my reason for using the Apex flat trigger.

I never felt trigger pinch to know what it is with any firearm nor do I find much to complain with a trigger type so long as reach is not to long and relatively smooth pull .

It is good that we have some choices .

Mine just feels more comfortable, and I was getting the "pinch" from the stock trigger.

I don't know about you, but I pretty much just don't like the feel of a flat trigger. I also have a curved Apex on an M&P (45C), and I didn't like a flat Apex on my Glock 34 MOS, preferring the original one. I wish Apex made both curved and straight versions of all their replacement triggers, because I really want to try one on my Walther PPQ 5" (which I'll be using for competition), only because the stock trigger pull with the small grip (which is most comfortable for me on this gun for some reason) is rather short and way back against the rear wall. The Apex's breaks farther forward....but it's also flat.

I installed the Apex and ended up removing and selling it and installing SIG's adverse trigger. This is no criticism of the Apex trigger, but I just couldn't warm up to it. It and the original trigger would wear a blister on my finger after 110 rounds or so. I do like the adverse trigger as a replacement, though.

Never got the pinch so never bothered with an aftermarket trigger for the P320. I'm mildly curious and might get around to trying it one of these days. I don't know if that many people consider it a "must have." For some it's solving a problem and for many others it is a marginal improvement.

My dad got one of these within the first week of owning his p320. The factory trigger irritated the hell out of his finger during the first range trip, and shortly after ordered the apex. Both him and I agree that it is a great improvement.

We also both just went to flat faced triggers in our modern sporting rifles, and haven't looked back

Flatty’s are either for you or not. I had one on my 1911 Scorpion and liked it. Now with the 320, it makes the trigger feel lighter with a more consistent pull. Does nothing with the weight of it but does offer leverage which translates into a different feel. The older 320 versions, by design, made you grip lower on the trigger and upon release from each shot your finger would roll up under the trigger and trigger guard. They fixed with the adverse and before that the Apex was the answer, or change your finger placement but a lot if it is so instinctual so it is hard to break those habits.

"Looks good too........."

I'll confess that I've never particularly enjoyed gazing at the anatomical region the pictured "flat" trigger resembles. I think it might have been misnamed based on its shape...

Ok a little update: Installed on my 320 and to my surprise I love it!! Really debated even doing it because I honestly liked the stock trigger. Installed it yesterday and spent a lot of dry fire time with it and it felt like I could get on the trigger quickly and consistently but would need to really see at the range.

Well today I took it out and it was even better at the range. I was able to really get on targets at maximum speed for me from drawing from concealment, presenting and firing. Very consistent and I really liked the feel, my press was 100% consistent from a feel standpoint each and every time and as others have stated, the leverage gives it a feel that it is slightly lighter. I was really surprised at how much I like it. Had the same affect as expected on my sc. This is a great little upgrade I wasn't expecting.

thanks for all the input. And your're right, it does look good on the pistol.

I really like the feel of the Apex trigger over the stock trigger, just that simple.
