I see no reason for that ghastly long and heavy pull other than trying to make it harder to hit a target. But I am not a Glock guy and am used to a SA trigger that breaks well before 5.5#
I'm not a fan of the Glock trigger, either, but it's a combat weapon and not a target pistol.
Shooters have been doing trigger work as long as there have been guns. I'm not talking just target guns...All guns.
Are every one of these people just been plain not right and you are there sage wisdom put forth to put them all in place?? Some peopel just don't like that crappy trigger in their ugly gun. It's still going to have that long almost DA pull. So it breaks under 5.5# It doesn't make the gun itself any more unsafe.
In my Glock days I had a 3# pull on two different pistols. Not once did it not work properly. I did have issues with that tinker toy guide rod in a 19 but I replaced it with a steel one and it was great! Still didn't like the gun that much though and sold it to help me into a Sig Sauer
Parts fail no matter if they have the Gaston seal of approval or not.
What I want to know is how many of these triger set ups have been sold and how many failed? Compare that to the OEM setups and see if there is a drop in quality. but I have not found such data so I have no reason to believe the parts where not good.
Feels funny defending made by Glock or their aftermarket parts makers. But without proof there is no way to say the part(s) where not up to code so to speak. And without that I'll still defend the tradition of modding a firearm as it's been done since the dawn of gun time. Even a combat weapon.
