    Default Glock Trigger Mod

    Has anyone out there had experience with the Glock trigger mod that lightens the trigger pull to 3.5lbs? Particularly with the G23, and more particularly a gen4? If so, does it have any affect on follow up shots during rapid fire bursts or double taps? I'm told the lighter pull inceases accuracy, but I'm curious if it would have a negative affect on quick follow ups due to the gun not being steady and possibly too pre mature of a pull.

    Have a gun smith do it. Places like Bills in MN it's $50 and they do it all for you.
    People like it. Wouldn't lighten it in a carry gun though.

    I put it in my Gen 3, 22 and Gen 4, 27. Removed it from the 27 because it was too light for me on that small of a gun. Shooting IDPA, my groups opened up due to too premature of a pull as you said. With the 23 in the middle, it might be ok. I agree Beachbum, 3.5 is too light for my carry gun.

    Why not? I've lightened two of my carry guns triggers now.

    A friend of mine had a 3.5lb trigger on his gen 3 23 and loved it. He had no issue with accuracy because he practiced regularly. It was also his carry gun.

    For certain people sure. It's more of a if it ain't broke don't fix it thing. I'd rather not compromise the integrity of a good factory gun unless I was using it for competition or something. Personal preference I guess

    That doesn't make sense to me either, but that's all right :-) I feel it comes down to what ever works best for the shooter, as it's their life that's being defended. So if a 3.5# trigger instead of a 5# is what the shooter can put more accurate groups with, that is what they should have. Seems like the responsible common sense thing to do ;-)

    I have a 17, 19, and 26...have polished the appropriate elements of all to smooth out trigger action. Also put a 3.5# connector in the 17. The native trigger press on Glocks has never bothered me so I have seen no reason to tinker with it - but on talking with a friend, decided to give the lighter connector a try on the 17. I have found, on occasion, that the lighter press has lead to a premature follow-up shot when I have not been practicing with it as I tend to practice more with the other two since they are my carry guns.

    Definitely a "To each his own" thing.

    I'm told it's not a difficult to undo, so maybe I'll just have to try it out and see. thanks for the input guys!
