    I just recently purchased a Glock 22 used. Its my first glock. I would like to know how to PROPERLY adjust the overtravel. I could tinker around and figure it out, however, i would like to do it right. any help or places to find the right info would be greatly appreciated.

    There's a place you can put a screw, but it's much easier to go the Ghost Rocket route. The one that "copied" my idea (I never told or showed anyone, but I did come up with it first!) for the over travel screw is also available, but I don't recall their name.

    You can buy the Lonewolf Ultimate trigger housing that has a setscrew for overtravel adjustment. There is no overtravel or any other trigger adjustment on a factory stock Glock.

    I drill and tap the stock glock trigger connector housing for overtravel screws all the time.

    it already has the over travel adjustment. I am looking for a procedural type answer. what should I be looking for other the comfort in the trigger pull. I have heard that to much adjustment one way or another can lead to misfires and double fires, which i am trying to avoid.

    I will be looking into the ghost trigger set up though.

    Ok, what you want to do is slowly screw in the over travel stop until the trigger has as little over travel after the break as possible.
    You will have to take the slide on and off a lot and pop the connector housing up out of the frame each time to make the adjustment to the over travel stop screwand then check the travel after each adjustment.
    Make sure you re-instal the connector housing pin each time as the housing sits different in the frame without the pin.

    If you tighten the adjustment too much, you will not be able to get the trigger to break anymore.
    That will leave you with the slide stuck on the frame as you have to release the striker by pulling the trigger in order to remove the slide from the frame.
    If you end up in that situation, lock the slide back and remove the striker retaining plate from the back of the slide, dump out the striker and then you will be able to pull the trigger to release the slide from the frame.
    Then, back off the over travel adjustment, put everything back together and call it done.

    Zev-tech trigger is adjustable for pre travel and over travel. I use one on all my glocks.

    Are you trying to adjust overtravel via filing the overtravel nub on the Ghost Rocket connector, or do you have a trigger housing with an adjustment screw, or both? Your posts are confusing, as to whether you have an adjustable trigger housing or not.

    You have the standard Ghost 3.5# trigger connector. It has no adjustment ability for overtravel. The Ghost Rocket 3.5# connector has the TCT (trigger control tab) that requires filing of the TCT until the pistol will fire without overtravel. Compare yours with the pictures below to show the difference. If you want to be able to adjust for over travel, you will need to replace the connector you have with a Rocket or Elite connector, or purchase or make a connector housing with an overtravel screw.

    Picture indicates the TCT that allows adjustment for overtravel

    Picture shows complete view of the Rocket connector. Note the extra tab not found on your 3.5# connector. The Rocket also has debris grooves that the standard Ghost connector doesn't have.

    Sorry, I missed the adjustment screw in your photo. That is all you need to adjust the trigger for overtravel.

    You will want to disassemble the pistol and turn the adjustment screw in until the trigger bar rests on the ledge in the connector housing. That should prevent it from firing. Before reassembling the pistol, install a Glock armorers plate to allow you to release the striker so you can disassemble the pistol. Otherwise you will have to use the method in this video to be able to disassemble the pistol.

    Reassemble the pistol, and see if it will fire. If it doesn't, disassemble it and back the overtravel screw out just a bit. Reassemble and try to dry fire the pistol again. Repeat the process of backing the overtravel screw out until the pistol will fire. It is a trial and error process and it may take multiple disassemblies and adjustments to get it just right. For an extra margin of tolerance, once the pistol will fire, disassemble it again and back the screw off just a hair. Reassemble and make sure everything functions properly with little or no overtravel.
