Apex Tactical Specialties has announced the upcoming release of its new Action Enhancement trigger kits for Ruger Mark IV and Mark IV 22/45 pistols, designed to decrease pull weight, deliver a crisp break, and reduce overall travel compared to the stock trigger.

Apex is known as a leading manufacturer of aftermarket triggers and parts for brands such as CZ, Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, and Walther. Now you can add Ruger to that list with the upcoming release of the new Action Enhancement Kits for the Ruger Mk IV model .22LR pistols.

The kit replaces the factory trigger and hammer with components that are designed, tested, and manufactured by Apex to provide an improved, more responsive trigger pull. A safety plate is also included, which surpassed Apex’s extensive drop-testing process, conducted from a height of six feet onto concrete.

An optional red anodized magazine safety delete plate is also shipped with the kit. Installation of this part allows the pistol to fire without the magazine inserted. Apex recommends that this part should be used for competition purposes only. A stock Mark IV will not fire if a magazine is not inserted, even if a round is chambered.

Two kits are available: one for Mk IV models and one for Mk IV 22/45 models. Each will be available with either a red or black anodized trigger. You can pre-order the new kits starting on August 1, with shipping starting on August 7.
