    Trigger job, but which one?


    What trigger would you prefer if there was no price difference, a fulcrum trigger or a ghost rocket trigger and why? Iím just doing some research and would like to know what other people think that have more experience than I do. Thanks

    Well, I've had experience with the Ghost Rocket. I've put one in each of my two Glocks - G34 and G30SF. They both have smooth, crisp triggers with no over-travel now. I did the full Ghost SD spring kits too. I can not imagine a better trigger! Just keep in mind that this is a graph with only two data points!!

    Try GLCOKTriggers - They are forum sponsors and I know of a few members here that have them and love them.

    You're going to see replies that cover a variety of options. Since you've named Fulcrum and Ghost Rocket, I think we already have some confusion about the products offered. Fulcrum is a complete (and expensive) system, Ghost Rocket (unless I'm missing something) is some selected parts.

    Let's begin with my idea (not everybody's idea) of the steps taken to get a very light Glock trigger. Note that a very light Glock trigger might be a bad idea for a carry gun, but I'm going to assume that you understand the risks of very light triggers.

    1. Polish your existing Glock Trigger. This is the "25 cent trigger job", it will smooth out the trigger. The procedure is well documented on the web.
    2. Add a higher power trigger spring, reducing trigger pull by about 1 pound. Wolff is a good supplier, there are others.
    3. Change the connector to a "3.5 pound" connector and polish it, reducing trigger pull weight again. There are several available, Ghost Rocket is one that incorporates an over-travel stop that needs to be fitted to the gun by filing.
    4. Change the striker spring to a lighter-weight spring. This reduces trigger pull weight and it reduces the force with which the firing pin hits the primer. Optionally, at this step you could change to a light striker, either a steel one that's been relieved, or a titanium striker if you were really serious about cost being no object.
    5. Change the firing pin safety spring to a lighter spring, and polish the firing pin safety. This should improve the smoothness. If you're into titanium in a big way and don't mind the cost, you can get a titanium trigger safety that will (I guess) produce some more smoothness.
    6. Change the trigger housing to one that incorporates an adjustable over-travel stop, which shortens the trigger reset and trigger travel. These are available from GlockTriggers and Lone Wolf Distributors. If you've already installed the Ghost Rocket connector, this won't make any sense, though, since the Ghost Rocket incorporates an over-travel stop.
    7. Start changing some of the basic components (the trigger) for aluminum pieces. Spendy, but they probably improve feel.

    If you don't feel like hand-crafting all of those steps, then you can jump to the Fulcrum or the GlockTriggers "Edge" (http://shop.glocktriggers.com/main.sc). Once you start shopping online at either GlockTriggers or Glockworx (http://www.glockworx.com/) I'm sure you'll find a lot of interesting alternatives.

    Personally, I use steps 1,2,3, and 6. That gives me a good 3.5-4 pound trigger at low cost.

    I've had excellent experience with GlockTriggers and OK experience with Glockworx. If you ask him a question, Jeff at GlockTriggers will probably answer your email on the same day if not within a couple of hours. With Glockworx, I asked a question a few months ago that remains unanswered.

    Does this help?

    The GlockTriggers.com drop in Guardian system is all factory parts that have been polished and tuned. Since it is all factory parts it remains GSSF legal.

    I don't see "Guardian" listed on GlockTriggers any more. The "G Match" looks closest, but it has a minus connector. Am I not looking in the right place?

    Oops. I forgot. I think the Guardian is in the "shipping soon" category of his product list. Call him and he can hook you up. I think he is waiting for the artwork for the packaging.

    The Guardian and the G Match are virtually the same kit. It was a marketing decision. Some folks don't want a "competition" trigger...
