Glocks are no doubt a fine weapons, and there aren’t that many modifications that really seem necessary. A few weeks ago, we talked about changing the sights and getting a trigger job. Today we are going to discuss the trigger job in more detail.
We offer four basic types of trigger jobs, but one of them is never requested, so really it’s three. The one never requested is giving the gun the so called “NY” trigger named for the NYPD who needed more weight than the standard Glock comes with from the factory. It can give the gun a 8# or 12# pull. I personally don’t know NYPD’s rational for this decision, but it has been reported that they wanted more of a revolver type pull thinking this would be safer for their officers who were transitioning from revolvers to the Glocks.
Now to the three jobs you might find useful. The first involves smoothing out the trigger, but doesn’t require the replacement of any parts. We simply get rid of some of the nastiness you feel in the trigger. You can expect a pull of around 4# to 4.5#. This is a great option for the person who carries their Glock as a defensive weapon.
The next level involves replacing the factory connector with a 3.5# connector. We use the Ghost connector for this part. This is the best option for anyone competing in IDPA who wants a better pull, or the person interested in carrying the gun for defensive purposes. It is completely stable, but provides about a 3.5# trigger pull.
The final option is a Competition Trigger Job. This job is only for competition. We replace the factory springs and connector to give you an extremely light trigger pull. This trigger job is fine for competition, but really shouldn’t be used on a carry gun. This job can get the pull to right around 3#.
Those are the basic options, but remember, it’s not a 1911. You just won’t get the same feel, because the designs are too different, but it will make a very noticeable difference.
