    Different Brands of Trigger Assembly for G17C

    Hi Guys,

    I've been seeing these Trigger Assemblies from companies such as ZEV, Ghost, GlockStore, etc. and I was wondering do these modifications have significant effects on the performance of the firearm? I know that stock Glocks really has these heavy trigger pulls.

    I saw a thread here with a detailed comparison of connectors from different brands, and I was wondering if the same has been done to trigger assemblies with modified Trigger Pad, Trigger Safety Spring, Ejector Housing, Connector, Skeletonized Striker, Trigger Spring, Firing Pin Safety and Spring.

    Also what's the difference in performance between a flat-faced trigger compared to the not flat ones?

    I am contemplating on getting a trigger assembly for my G17C and would love to hear about your input and experiences on these commercially-available upgrades.

    Thanks everyone!

    I have tried a lot of triggers in Glocks. Apex, Agency, Overwatch and I have both the Zev Fulcrum and Zev’s Pro flat faced.

    The confusing part about “flat faced” is understanding what they are referring to. Flat can be from top to bottom of trigger or from side to side or both.

    A Glock trigger is curved top to bottom and rounded side to side. The Zev Fulcrum is curved from top to bottom but flat side to side.

    The Pro “flat faced” is straight top to bottom and flat side to side. The Pro “curved” is curved top to bottom but still flat side to side.

    I definitely prefer the Zev Fulcrum trigger. The second closest would be the Overwatch - I’m not sure exactly where the difference in these triggers are - but I clearly prefer the Zev over the Overwatch.

    As far as curve vs flat. I find the curve top to bottom is what I’m used to a trigger being/feeling like. I don’t shoot as well with the flat top to bottom triggers.

    The flat side to side, does make a difference. I find it to be more forgiving of little errors

    All of that is to be respectful and answer the question asked. I still believe that changing to a lighter trigger early on is detrimental to development as a good shooter. The triggers cover up technique problems and then the shooter plateaus and doesn’t become as good as they could be. But, everyone has the right to choose.

    Maybe consider switching out to the factory trigger (or even a heavier trigger) for practice and only use the aftermarket for competition. The heavier trigger will expose any technique problems you might have.

    FWIW - I only use factory triggers in self defense guns. The aftermarket are only on a couple of guns used for competitions.

    I have the Overwatch Poly Dat trigger in my gen 5 19. It's my new steel match pistol.

    I like it. It is the flat / flat style.

    Also with about 300 rounds through it, there are no marks on the slide and no marks on my current carry gen 4 19. It's had well over a thousand rounds through it.

    Like the gentlemen above, I have tried just about all mentioned triggers and trigger sets ie. usually a trigger return spring, minus connector, striker spring. And the different brands do bring there own unique feel to the way the trigger breaks and almost as important..where it breaks.. I side with MtStream on having only oem in my carry gun for numerous reasons.. but in my comp G34 I really liked the Zev Pro system. Like most Zev products, they seem to be well made and quality engineered and pretty strait forward as far as fit goes. However, I just recently swapped in the Zev fulcrum trigger shoe and bar right into there pro housing. Popped in there reduced pull weight spring kit and MAN!!!! It pulls the scale just below 3lbs but is as crisp and sharp as a 1911's. No creep, and almost no take up..( this i had to play with a few times before i could get it just right between too much free play or no reset). I have had Overwatch (one of my favorites) and Agency but this set up so far takes the cake in my opinion for one of the best trigger set ups out there. No accidental double taps or misfires of any kind.. Just a super sharp below 3 pound pull thats right there. So my answer to you is...Yes they absolutely change the way your firearm feels. Its up to you to decide what feels best to you...

    @denimsglock, what can you say is the difference between the G34 and G17 if it will be for competition use? What division are you shooting?
