Great post !!!!
Great post !!!!
One more Q now that I have re-read it in that context. Are all Glock triggers equivalent in the "out of the box" original configuration? You talk Glock as in the singular. I suppose the competetion models might be different and then there are the NY triggers and all of that but I am just talking about the vanilla run of the mill Glocks.
The reason I ask is that I am wondering if I go Glock for all calibers and sizes of pistols, will they have the same triggers (excluding the competetion models).
Excellent! I appreciate the effort you took to write this, and agree it should be a sticky!
First, again, thanks to all for the kind remarks; it's quite rewarding to think I've posted something that may be of help.
BTW, that in no way means the trigger pull is 3.5 or 5 lbs. Glock measures trigger pull by pulling from the bottom or tip of the trigger.
I also moved a copy of it to the Reference forum here.
Excellent Post! Thank you for the valuable information sir. :hand10:
Great post. Information every shooter needs.
I use the 5lb connecter and the NY-1 8lb trigger in my defensive Glocks. Being an old double action revolver type of guy I find it fits my shooting style quite well.:yup:
Trigger pull to me means the difference between a gun you can "hit the target", and a gun that if someone had a hostage with a knife to their throat I feel 100% confident I can put a bullet in their eye or any other effective place like the point of the shoulder. I do not consider a gun that can hit the target to be my personal defense gun. My Beretta model 86 can be cocked for a nice single action pull and will shoot a 4 or 5 inch group at 55 yards. To me the gun and trigger are way more important than the caliber, a .22 that can be shot exactly where you want to within half an inch is perfectly adequate, that's a target pistol and target pistols have nice triggers.
Nice breakdown of the elements, good job.
Nice write-up. Trigger pull has always been something that I have known about through experience, but I have never actually seen it written out this technically and easy to read. It will really make me think about things next time I am at the range.
Your comments about the Glock connector and the Ghost Rocket are spot on.
I fitted a Ghost Rocket 3.5# connector with the overtravel limiting tab to my G21. Like you wrote, that put it on the edge of malfunctioning. In my case, I got 2 light strikes in about 50 rounds. I corresponded with Mr. Ghost himself and he said some people chose to compensate for this possibility with a different firing pin spring. I decided that was too much messing around for my self-defense pistol, so I installed the highly polished regular Ghost 3.5# connector. That and and a competition trigger spring are the extent of my mods to all my Glocks.
I just put the #3.5 rocket in my G32. It took a little fine tuning (installed and removed about 8 times). but it was worth it. I also just installed a ss guide rod and 20lb recoil spring. it helps a lot with the muzzle jump. Another little part i recommend getting is a recoil buffer. it aslo helps with recoil and keeps your slide from wearing against the very front of your frame.http://www.imageurlhost.com/images/i...722bx6hl2d.jpg
