Glock trigger options

by Erik  

One of the most common complaints about Glocks from shooters of other firearms is the trigger.  Most 1911 shooters hate the Glock triggers because of the striker-fire mechanism used.  By default most Glocks have a 5.5 pound trigger pull.  You have 2 popular choices to lighten up the trigger pull.

1. Trigger connector replacement
2. Challenger/Edge trigger kit

The trigger connector is the easier of the two and is also the cheapest.  A few companies produce these and it only takes about 10 minutes to install and brings the pull weight down to 3.5 pounds.

Some models come with threaded barrels for use with a suppressor, others require an adapter or different barrel.

All 3 pistols are great choices. They are solid designs, perform well, and are a blast to shoot. The only downside, you are stuck with 10 rounds per magazine. These guns are moderately priced depending on which model you choose. Retail prices will range from $300 - $450. Sig Sauer even makes a pink one for the ladies!
