DIY project. I have already had my FCU broken down all the way for polishing. Trigger removal was simple.
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.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!
Watch the Grayguns video on the PELT trigger starting at about 11:45.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!"
Does anyone know if the Apex works on the 45 ACP FCU? Some say it does, some say it doesn't. Has anyone here tried it?
I tried installing the Apex - the videos definitely help. I didn't have any issues with the trigger, but I had a pin fall out of the FCU and then an internal spring and so I had to take it in to a gunsmith as I didn't want to make it worse. If I had just kept my finger over the pin, or just put a piece of tape over it temporarily, I think I would have been just fine.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.
