    Cool Glock NY-2 Trigger Module......

    After trading and selling afew guns recently I came up with a G-19 with a NY-2 New York trigger module (orange). I have never had anything but the standard Glock trigger. I have not had a chance to take the gun to the range yet but in in dry practice and being an old revolver shooter (S&W and Ruger) I kinda like the feel of the NY trigger.

    What are some of your thoughts on this?

    Massad Ayoob says in an article that he has the NY-1 trigger module (green) and 5lb connector in all his Glocks.

    I use a NY1 because I rotate ccw with a revolver and I shot the Glock with it's standard trigger before I intended a few times at the range, because of the two different trigger-weights. The NY1 - after I got used to it - gives me plenty of added resistance and it breaks clean - no creep - an excellent combat trigger. Now my 2 carrys feel near the same shooting them. Perfect! for a rotation.

    I think you may find the NY2 too resistant a trigger-pull. If so, buy a replacement - they cost about $20 or less. I had a Glock armorer install it although I know many who do it themselves. No thanks - for me at least. My guns and my car's brakes go to an expert - and I am a LLLOOOOOONG way from being one. You can get the triggers at quite a few sites, or order it from Glock.

    Cool

    Thanks. I got a NY-1 and NY-2 through Midway USA for $ 1.98 each. I also got the firing pin spring and recoil spring. I do not know how many rounds have been put through this gun so while I have it apart I will get those replaced. Thanks for your reply.

    NY-1 and standard connector is my personal set up on carry GLOCK's. Any GLOCK I work on (GLOCK Armorer), I always ask if it is for carry or range. If it is for carry purposes, I will recommend this configuration.

    Some people don't like the heavier pull, but I think it is a good balance between the stock 5.5 lbs and your average DA.

    The NY-2 is just too much for me, personally. I have talked to a few "old-school" wheel-gunners that think they are perfect, though.

    Many years ago when doing tactical work we ran our Glock 35's with the 3.5 disconnect and a NY trigger and loved them.

    As you pull the trigger on a standard Glock you are stretching/pulling the trigger spring with a NY style trigger you are compressing a trigger spring to get that revolver like trigger pull resulting in fantastic improvement in trigger reset. We also ran a Glock 18 machine pistol and with the standard trigger it was hard to control. I put in a NY trigger kit and you could literally fire one, two or three round bursts on command.

    Old post but comes up fast in Google. I am like you. A long time revolver shooting who finds striker fired triggers to be too light. I love the NY2 trigger. I feel safer with it after getting my shirt tail caught in the trigger guard of a Glock 19 during practice when it was unloaded. I am also intimately familiar with how your finger seeks the comfort of your trigger despite all of your range practice under no stress. I use my first Distal joint to pull the trigger just like with my revolvers but without the long and heavy take up. If you learned to shoot using a gun with a 12 lb. trigger pull, shooting everything else is a piece of cake.

    I don't understand the rationale behind adding a heavier-than-factory trigger pull.

    I believe the NY triggers, based on their design compared to stock, are less likely to fail.

    Safer when I grab for it in a drawer below my line of sight the middle of the night after being woken suddenly, consistent with the trigger pulls of most of my other guns, less likely to go boom when I do not want it to go boom due to nerve damage and arthritis in my hands that makes fine feeling difficult at times, safer when I holsters since I cannot see my gun at 4:30-5:00 and I wear untucked shirts that once got caught in my Glock 19 during holstering, safeties on a 5.5 lb trigger are like putting all the safety features of a car on the accelerator and expecting everyone to be perfect and drive safely so it is not a problem despite daily reminders that we are human and subject to mental lapses, the reset point is more tactile and I can feel it much better when wearing gloves, safer trigger pull when wearing heavy gloves in winter, Google Mas Ayoob's article about how even highly trained professionals seek the safety of their trigger when under high stress and they do not even know it, experience in shooting at people trying to kill me and knowing that gun safety goes out the window most times, been shooting revolvers and DA/SA for 45 years and have no problem with heavy triggers, tell me when to stop. :)

    Basically I can shoot a heavy trigger more than well enough for defensive use and since it is safer for me in many areas, why not? I do not train to shoot bullseye but rather defensive shooting which is totally different. Do not need a light trigger to shoot well.

    NY Triggers were implimented by the NYPDduring the transition from revolvers to auto pistols. The Glock 19 authorized by the NYPD had the lightest trigger pull of the three authorized pistols. (S&W and Sig) There was a spate of N/D's and they had Gaston design heavier triggers. They are no more or no less likely to fail than the standard trigger.

    Actually, I'm going to disagree with a "I have no personal experience with spring failures" disclaimer.

    In my armorer's class, we were discussing the NY trigger springs and our instructor did mention that because of the materials difference, the NY trigger springs are more robust and see a lower failure rate. Nobody asked for a specific data set to verify his claim but I would assume he would be in a position to know something like that. That said, how often does a standard trigger spring fail? Not very often, so it's more of an academic objection than anything else.

    I'm using NY1 springs on my Glocks. The NY1 seems to give me a smoother and more consistent trigger pull. Adding a 3.5# connector to the mix results in pull weights comparable to the stock setup. (Going by feel here. I don't measure these weights.) Overall, I like the NY1 spring with or without changing connectors. I'm not sure that it's relevant to why I like the NY1 but I'm an old revolver shooter too.
    Be reasonable. See things my way.

    I'm an old revolver shooter who doesn't like heavier triggers when they don't have to be so. Too light a single-action trigger is too risky but heavy when it's not required, is a needless impediment. Took in a Glock 17 with a NY trigger back in the winter and find the trigger distasteful. This heavy trigger business in a Glock and the deliberate installation of same is something I don't understand.

    Well, this is why I am a member here. I am mostly a revolver guy from years of shooting but, carried a S&W 4506 which is DA/SA while in law enforcement many years ago. I carried a Rossi 38 for years and just switched to a DAO Sig with a hammer because of trigger weight and familiar trigger function (and cheaper 9mm ammo). While shopping, I really liked the feel of the G26 but, the light trigger (to me) is not something I would put in my pants. I might have given it more serious consideration if I knew you could tune the trigger heavy. I am not a trained special ops guy so I think my chance of an ND goes way up under stress with a lighter trigger. I also have a habit of thumb on hammer while holstering that is an automatic reflex for me so I may be to old and set in my ways to go striker fired now anyway but, I learned something new.

    Fair enough. Since none of those are valid considerations for me, my lack of similar need is understandable.
