    Glock trigger help, any armorers in the house?

    Ok so I dropped over $200 on a Pyramis trigger and ghost disconnector today for the Glock 19. The store installed the trigger for me and I brought her home and did some dry firing to get use to the new trigger.

    I read the directions that came with the trigger on the user adjustable pre-travel and over-travel. Very simple here, just 1 allen screw for each adjustment but there is a warning concerning not to overly adjusting the pre travel to the point of the trigger failing to reset. I adjusted, I dry fired, all is good or so I thought.

    Then I saw this video... Glock 23 Goes Full Auto - YouTube (warning there's some language.)

    So then I tried to rack the slide in an extremely hard manner and low and behold the trigger failed to reset. I don't remember now as much as I rack my brain whether the striker was cocked or not. I am hoping like heck the trigger was not so far adjusted that the striker block safety was not activated. I backed the pre-travel off to quite a bit.

    Let me explain where it was and where it is now with some pictures.
    Here's where it is now.

    I brought it home and adjusted the trigger originally so that the circled in red ledge on the dingus had about a mm of daylight between it and the frame.

    The directions where not specific here but I guess they mean this one is the proper ledge on the trigger safety dingus.

    So where it is adjusted now is pretty close to where it was when I first brought it home and I have racked the slide as hard as I can and I can not get it to have any sort of trigger malfunction. I am positive the gun is safe now but it is a little unnerving that one could be a turn or two away on an allen screw from the issue described in the video. I am also a little irritated the instructions explain how to do the adjustment but, do not include a picture or better description of proper placement of the trigger for safe operation.
    Thoughts?

    Perhaps that is why a lot of people recommend not replacing or fooling around with the factory supplied working parts of a Glock?

    Just wondering............

    Possible but I also know of a lot of big name smiths that do Glock trigger work so I am not so quick to dismiss the idea of it. If a Glock expert (armorer) answers my question that this trigger is truly a bad idea I will take it back and get my money back.

    i would send it back and get my money back. all i can tell is the system is a just like a factory trigger but has two adjustment that you can make to change the angle of the trigger. the glock trigger will drop below 5 pounds with use, around 4 pounds. if you want a lite trigger just drop in a 3.5 disconnector or do the glock .25 cent trigger job on the factory parts. the last disconnector i got last month i paid around $10.00 for it. shop around for the best price, they all are the same. but for a carry gun i keep the trigger factory with no changes. with use the 3.5 drops down to around 3. you do not need to change anything on a glock to make them run good. i even tried the titanimum safety, firing pin, etc... parts once. they are in the parts box now. i have found that the only thing you need to make a glock run is ammo. the more you shoot it the better it gets.

    I learned long ago not to mess with triggers and to learn to adapt to each gun instead. One can fix it until it's broke (I did!).

    Yeager says to leave them alone. Id say he knows what works, and doesnt work when it comes to Glocks.
