    Conventional trigger for Glock?

    I really like my wife's Glock 36. I just don't like the Glock's trigger. I don't like the 2-piece "middle-moves first" type of trigger. It's just me.

    Is it possible to switch out this trigger for a "conventional" one? I am OK with the weight of the pull and everything. I'd just like a one-piece trigger.

    Is there an option out there?

    That middle-moves-first is a safety mechanism. I am not sure if you can override it, bit I would be loathe to do so.

    Agree with KS. this is what makes a Glock a Glock. If you don't like the trigger setup, you may want to try another gun; perhaps a Ruger or S&W. IMHO.

    That'd be like buying a 4-Speed and wanting to take out the clutch, or putting drum brakes on a car that came with disc brakes.

    I vote to leave the trigger safety alone, it was designed that way by Glock and taking it out would likely make it a little more hazardous.

    John, what is it you dont like about it? I don't notice the two piece trigger when i am operating the gun. Is it pinching or sticking when you operate the trigger?

    I think they just told you to train with it and see if you get used to it. Sorry about my earlier less than helpful comment.

    No, you can't switch out that trigger...you will quickly get used to it....not a big deal.

    Yes there is; get a different gun.

    Given the design of the trigger mechanism, removing the safety from the trigger on a Glock is a really bad idea. Asking about it is a good thing, much better than guessing. Doing it would be a bad thing. It would make the gun unsafe. Period.

    I personally like the trigger on the Glocks. I have both a 19 and a 26 (my EDC). I haven't modified anything about the trigger mechanism on either of my Glocks. I did install an extended disassembly release and a +0 pinky extension on the mags for the 26. I don't notice the safety lever in the trigger at all. Ignore it for a few hundred rounds and it will not be an issue.

    The only other solution is to get a different gun.

    The "safety" you are talking about was designed to prevent the weapon from firing in the event it is dropped. DO NOT even think about altering it!

    Do some training with the G36 and within no time you'll become accustomed to the standard 5.5# trigger. If you want an upgrade, consider looking at these products:

    The pretravel should be taken out as the gun is being pushed out to full extension. After the first shot you shouldn't be releasing the trigger far enough to even notice it.

    I can't remember. Does the 36 have the smooth or serrated trigger? If the serrated, you could swap it out with a smooth one. That helps sometimes.
    Bend the knees, smooth is fast, watch the front sight.
