Apex Tactical Specialties has announced a mandatory recall of a limited number of Apex Action Enhancement Kits for the Slim Frame Glock pistols (G43, G43X, G48), sold between October 2021 through March 2022. These specific kits are assembled with an Apex in-house manufactured trigger bar—not a Glock factory trigger bar—and were sold through Apex’s dealer and distributor network.
The company has identified an issue with the Apex trigger bar where, under certain circumstances, the dimensions of the trigger bar are out of spec resulting in a failure to reset the trigger. Apex is instructing customers to discontinue the use of these trigger kits, part numbers 102-117 (Black) and 102-157 (Red), and visit ApexTactical.com for full details and instructions on how to return the affected kits for replacement. Complete instructions are found there. Using the online form expedites receiving a replacement or credit, according to the company, but owners can also call (623) 322-0200 and talk to a customer service representative.
Do not ship any affected product to Apex Tactical Specialties until an RMA and shipping label has been generated and sent. In the interim, Apex asks that customers remove the Apex kit and return their pistol to the factory configuration.
Owners in the United States can either receive a new kit—roughly six to eight weeks after their recalled unit has been received—or credit equal to the retail value of the kit they returned applied on their Apex Tactical Online account.
Apex kits assembled with a Glock made factory trigger bar and sold prior to the identified timeframe are not at issue and not subject to the recall. Apex’s ‘No Bar’ kits, part numbers 102-114 and 102-154, are also not included in this safety recall. Only those kits featuring the Apex in-house manufactured trigger bars are being recalled.
