Sweet!!  Lov'n the one on the left  8)  FN Tactical... how's the stock trigger pull on that?  Looks like you have done some trigger work on this one, at least a different shoe.  I have never handled one and am spoiled by 1911 triggers.

It looks like the same HBI Theta Forward trigger on mine except this one is red and I picked the black one. It drops the pull by changing the angle of the trigger so it's a bit lighter just by itself. I combined that with HBI's spring kit and then polished everything in the trigger group with Flitz until I could see my reflection in it. Mine feels like a 1911 trigger now and I learned how to tune triggers building 1911s so tat makes sense I guess  :D

The FN stock trigger is pretty bad, the Apex replacement changes the trigger pull into something that's near the top as far as striker triggers go.

My pistols have only been hammer w/the exception of a .357 Sig (Glock) that I had.  Really didn't care for that trigger.  Is the tigger kinda long like that?

Lol... I thought you meant the trigger on the EVO. Yeah, my friend has an FN Tactical and it's not a great trigger but I've felt worse. My previous PCC was a Beretta CX4 and the trigger on that thing was the worst ever. It felt awful, had choppy, gritty inconsistent break points no matter how well it was cleaned and lubed, and pulled at like 11 pounds stock. On top of that, it was 100% polymer. I never would have bought it in the first place had I known that but I didn't find out until it was too late. Luckily, a fantastic machinist on the Beretta forums made a run of full metal internals and I bought everything he produced. After all that modding, it ran like a dream; it only took an extra $500 in parts and about 10 hours of fitting and polishing... Lol...

Same here. I had a Glock, hated the trigger so I put in a Zev Tech kit and it went from too heavy to aim straight to so light it's not safe to carry anymore. I've always hated Glocks. I had 1st Gen Steyr M40 that I carried for years that I absolutely loved though. That was the one and only hammerless pistol I've ever liked.

The FN 509 stock trigger has a long take-up, there's a wall and then a mushy break. The Apex shortens the take-up and the break is very crisp.

@CTTech

After about 100 rounds in succession, the glue began to heat and liquify. Then the whole guard began to slide. I took it off. It was a decent solution for the heat, but it looked awful and the exposed glue was even worse. I just bought some mechanix gloves and put my ergos back on.

Look at the adapter that goes between the cheek rest and the tailhook.  It's different than the one I've seen everywhere else (like at Prepper Gun Shop).  It follows the contours of the "cheek rest".
