J-Frame & Apex

I just finished installing the Apex J-Frame spring kit in the 442, and for now let's just say, it's pretty sweet.  Where there once was stacking and a pretty heavy trigger, there's now a somewhat lighter one, that's smooth and consistent throughout.  (Need to find my trigger gauge to see how much lighter it is now though.)

I followed the two videos Apex has on YouTube, and they're pretty good for walking you through the install.  I will also second the advice that you invest in this tool if you plan on doing the install.  My thumb would have thanked me, rather than had a screwdriver blade jammed under the nail.  First time in a while I wanted to pass out while doing some gunsmithing.

Yes, the rebound spring tool is a must unless you have to gorillas around to help you shove that thing back in...ask me how I know...

I managed to stab myself taking the stupid thing out actually. Then I only managed to launch it across the room six times or so trying to get it back in. Simon was greatly amused.
