DIY project. I have already had my FCU broken down all the way for polishing. Trigger removal was simple.

I agree. I'm an amateur, at this and I have made multiple trigger swaps no problem. First, the Apex. I really liked what it did for me because the stock curved trigger bit my finger and the Apex cured that. But then I decided I wanted less pull and tried the GGI flat PELT. Took the pull from 7#8oz down to 5#12oz with the same basic feel as the Apex. Love it!

Big difference in price I think, but if it works price is not a factor. I'm not a competition shooter, so not sure how the trigger pull would affect me. Friend has a piece that has near a hair trigger, found myself busting the cap before I was ready to shoot.

Ordered the Gray Guns PELT.

The install is easy. Just make sure you have a pair of needle nose pliers on deck and you should be fine. Removing the lil spring for the trigger can be done with fingers but it's not worth the wasted time trying and hurting your fingers to be that guy to be like "I didn't even need pliers to remove/install the spring!"

Having installed both (using the Apex technique, I bent the trigger spring) I can emphatically tell you to use the Gray Guns technique as posted on their site, even if you are installing the Apex trigger only. It's much easier!

Looking into the same here. Thanks everyone for your help!

Love the apex, actually prefer it over the gg pelt for my carry option. Definetly diy from the gg video. Extremely easy, takes maybe 5 minutes, the other vids were much more difficult to install doing it their way.

Installation is simple. Here's a good "How-To" video to guide you through the process.

For me, the flat Apex trigger feels good and reduces the tendency to push/pull your shots by an off-center trigger squeeze. The only downside I've had so far is getting used to the slight sting the Apex trigger has.

There is a slight wiggle to the trigger (nothing terrible but slight) and I think the shot recoil reverberates through the trigger. Reminds me of hitting a baseball bat against a large tree. The sting is more surprising than painful and after a few rounds you forget about it.

All in all, no regrets making the switch.

FWIW, Apex is releasing a new trigger that supposedly reduces pull weight by 2 pounds. Heard the news AFTER my order of their original flat trigger shipped. Yay me!

Appreciate the feedback. After reading all and another thread on here, I decided the Gary Guns PELT was the better option. Will be another learning curve to conquer. Thanks again.

I bent my first spring using pliers and it was still a struggle. The two videos above are definitely the way to go. They differ on teardown method (the easier part) but both work well. They are the same when comes to replacement (the harder part) and that's where the videos are most helpful. Very simple. These methods work well with all triggers- stock, Apex and PELT. An additional virtue of the PELT is that you can install it with the stock spring and get a pull that is intermediate between stock and full install.

The apex trigger is excellent. A significant improvement, yet easy upgrade. TheEyeronic1's suggestion for needle nose pliers is spot on. My fat fingers alone could not get the spring back on.

Watch the Grayguns video on the PELT trigger starting at about 11:45.

This technique for reinstalling the trigger return spring makes it easy, and yes, I have also been able to do it in reverse.

Took the P320 down to clean, while I was at it I pulled the guts, looked at the trigger assembly and it looks like the install of the PELT will be an easy project.
