Thanks guys! (I've been away from my computer for a few days)
I guess it just feels strange to me. I can't really describe it. Maybe I am expecting it to pinch me or something. I think I will spend a little more time at the range with the wife's Glock.
I am assuming that there isn't a replacement for it since that wasn't mentioned. I own mostly DA\SA guns with relatively wide triggers. Based on what everyone has said I won't attempt to change the trigger. Maybe I'll get used to it.
Thanks for all the responses. I'll take your advice!
The Glock has 3 safeties. You want to remove the very first one in the Glock design leaving the trigger exposed for an ND? The DA would have a field day with you in court when he asks who removed one of the three factory safeties the manufacturer designed into the gun. I also don't recommend lightening the trigger pull by swapping the connector, especially for a carry gun. This normally done to weapons used in competition. Every person who teaches weapon safety and carry recommendations that I've read discourages it, including Masad Ayoob. Again, the first thing the DA will ask is why you lightened the trigger in an attempt to make you look overly aggressive. It has happened.
It won't end well for you.
And to correct a previous post the lever in the trigger is not the drop safety. It's the trigger safety, which is the first of the three safeties to be deactivated as you pull the trigger The second safety is a small metal tab on the trigger bar the pushes in a plunger in the slide as you continue to pull and allows the striker to move when released by the cruciform/sear.. The last safety is the drop safety, which consists of a metal shelf machined into the receiver that prevents the sear from moving if the weapon is dropped, which prevents an accidental firing of the weapon.
My .02 YMMV.
I asked the same question here; I am such a fan of my Glock but at first was not happy with the trigger. By the way that is the only safety on the Gun. Now I am 100% happy with it but it took some time to get accustom to it did a lot of dry fire and the balance the penny drill etc...
