Trigger Job on a Glock
Looked on the Glock forum with no luck so here's my question. I have a stock Gen 2 G17 that I want to start running for my first 3 gun set up. What are some options for lightening the trigger? Thanks in advance
There are options for all needs and budgets. How much do you want to spend ? Do you want the pistol to remain carry-safe and USPSA Production legal ?
Going to be a dedicated Competition gun. I'd like to get it down to a 3.5# pull
If you are considering sending it out, Dave's Metal Works does a trigger job. I ran into him a couple of times at gun shows and big 3 gun matches and played with his tricked out G17. It was so nice, I considered (for a split second) going with my G17 for 3 gun instead of my STI Edge. I don't know too much about Glocks and what's out there as far as drop in parts to make it as good as a DMW's trigger job. I have installed a 3.5 lb connector and polished up a bunch of parts in my G17 but it didn't feel as nice.
Glockworx does a pretty sweet job as does S&J Custom.
Can't comment on competition rules, but DIY Glock trigger jobs are a breeze. Get a spring kit from one of the many Glock sites (Lone Wolf is my favorite) that replaces the trigger spring (6 lb), safety plunger spring, and the firing pin spring. Get a 3.5 connector if the gun doesn't have one already. If there's a little minus ( - ) sign on the connector, you're good. Drop them in the gun. Goggle 25 Cent trigger job and carefully follow those directions. You'll end up with a 3 - 3.5 pound trigger that's much smoother. Cost will be about 30 or 40 bucks.
Get a drop in trigger kit from Vanek Custom. You will NOT be disappointed.
The point with glocks is that you don't rework the stock parts you swap in aftermarket stuff (or factory upgrades for a mild job).
If you end up swapping guns out or needing the gun for standard use you just swap the original parts back in
+1 on Vanek. Charlie stands behind his work big time!!!
I think you will be happy with a 3lb conector and a 6lb trigger spring. Anything lighter will be too light.
thanks for posting this thread. i been thinking about the same thing.
i think im gonna give vanek a try. my only reservation is the cost.
but he does spend time on them from what i can tell, so i guess the price is fair given the time he prolly spends putting them together.
Bobby - Send it to Glockworx since they're down below in Ventura.
