Apex Tactical Specialties

About Apex Tactical Specialties:

Apex Tactical Specialties, Inc. designs and manufactures parts for firearms, including triggers, hammers and barrels for a wide variety of handguns and revolvers.

While we are first and foremost known for state-of-the-art Smith & Wesson competition revolver action work, our research in this area has led to ground breaking part designs for many more revolvers. The result has been an explosion of interest in revolver competition.
Utilizing the same engineering expertise we've applied to Smith and Wesson revolvers, we're continuing to evolve our line of new innovative parts and services for modern service pistols

Apex was created to serve Law Enforcement personnel, competition shooters, and individuals who recognize the need for defensive tools to be more than "just adequate" for the job. We are a quality-driven and progressive organization - our product line, services, and expertise are continually evolving. Our mission is simple: superior parts, exceptional performance and craftsmanship, and above all, unparalleled customer service.

ATS, Inc. will not fit, install, or endorse any products that have not been thoroughly tested and evaluated by our staff. Personal experience, extensive field-testing, and follow up failure analysis are the essential methods by which we evaluate components that we recommend and use. It is not sufficient to just know that a part will work: we need to know why it works, and the limits of its operational envelope.
