    Sorry for the separate thread, but I thought perhaps many were avoiding input on this thread due to its specific title.
    http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=3270148#post3270148


    The trigger [on a G30 I tried, see thread above], seemed terrible. It was lighter than my stock G23 up to a point, then got stiffer near the end and the break was sort of mushy. I was just dry-firing it so it may not be so noticeable when actually shooting.

    Is that typical of glocks that have had their trigger springs swapped?

    I much prefer the stock one if so... it's a firmer pull but it feels more consistent to me; more like a double-action revolver. I also don't know if the trigger was actually done by Robar or if the PO worked on it.

    I've only tried "stock" G17s, 19s, and 23s by comparison... can any of you who have 'worked on' triggers describe what they feel like?

    It really all depends on what was added onto the Glock.

    Last weekend I tried out a stock G22 and the trigger pull was very smooth. Perhaps it was a rental gun and had 100,000s of rounds through it. I compared it with my G35 that has a 3.5lb connector and NY1 spring, mine had stronger-revolver like pull; which I like.

    I have the NY-1 and 3.5# connectors in mine.I'd call the pull mostly similar to a short takeup on a DA revolver but that's not to say that it's anything as smooth as a S&W wheelie,just that it's firm and consistant compared to the standard trigger.

    I installed 3.5# connectors on my G36 and G20, but didn't like it as well as the stock set-up. I probably should have left them on and added NY trigger springs and may do that in the future.

    I think it's because of what I'm used to. My first pistol was a G19, and I had only shot DA revolvers prior to that. I wouldn't take the first 1911 I bought to the range for 3 months for fear of embarassing myself with an AD.

    It's still my favorite trigger-pull, but the guns I have with over 5,000 rounds shoot the sweetest. Instead of the $0.25 trigger job, I call it the $1,500 trigger job. It's a lot more fun to smooth it out that way.

    Funny you say that, I usually shoot with a 1911 and my first AD was with a Glock. :uhoh:

    Way better than Sigma

    I have 2 Glock 20's, and a Glock 23. The pulls are about 5-8 pounds, but the actual sear breaking is crisp.

    I have a S&W Sigma 40VE, for which I overpaid, the trigger on that is insane!!
    I WISH they had copied Glock!

    I have a Glock 21 with the 3.5# connector and thousands of rounds through it. It's a smooth pull until a crisp break at the end. When fired from the trigger-reset point I can't feel the trigger move when I'm concentrating on the front-sight. All I can feel is the pressure applied to the trigger, then *BANG*.

    The standard coil spring was too mushy for me. I installed a NY spring, and like it a whole lot better. It makes for a smooth, steady pull with a crisp release.

    I think the best way i've heard people describe the glock trigger pull is

    "Imagine dragging your finger through a jar of peanut butter"

    I upgraded to a 3.5# connector. Its more like mayonaise now. :D

    I upgraded to the 3.5# too. It is as close to my 1911 as you will get a golck to be. I have only done this on my Glock 19. My Glock 26 has the OEM trigger because I carry it and don't want to have issues should I have to actualy use it in defense.

    install the 3.5# and DO NOT installteh HY trigger just the 3.5# and you should be very happy.

    My duty G22 had the NY2 trigger in it. That felt like draggin a cement block over the side of a cliff. I swapped the NY2 for a standard trigger spring, now it feels like a normal Glock - which is, to quote El Tejon, "mushy."

    El Tejon is dead on...

    It is "mushy", but who said mushy had to always be bad:confused: ? Kind of reminds me of squeezing wet bread, but I still end up carrying it more than the 1911 or anything else;) .

    my 19 had the 3.5 in it, and though i liked it much better than the stock trigger i still diddn't like the trigger overall like i do on other guns in the same category.

    Mushy, but not too heavy and the break is positive. I have the 5# factory trigger.

    I would say the trigger on my G19 is smooth, consistent & crisp. In the past I would change to the 3.5# trigger but found them mushy so I've stayed sotck w/ my 19 :cool:

    My trigger on my Glock22 is very smooth and i am totally adjusted to it. I think as i have practiced with it i have worn it in well. It is maybe at the most a 4lb pull or so,i have never checked it just best guess. A small dose of heaven to my finger if that help's any.

    My G23 had that ball point pen spring feel, couldn't like it, so I traded it. I found the gun okay in that it went bang, but accuracy wasn't that good.

    It was a first gen, so maybe they've improved since then.

    Models 17 & 21, one word: Awful. Worse trigger out of the box on any gun I've got that cost over $300 new.

    Now that I've put in the 3.5lb connectors I'd say they are tolerable, but I question if they would be safe to carry with this setup.

    The trigger on my G19 is totally stock, very short consistant pull to break. I shoot from reset, so the takeup isnt an issue. I was drawn to Glocks because of their triggers, not the lightest trigger, but the same every time, and I love the short, positive,"pop", on reset.:)
