Proudly selected as winner due to by drive-by comments in the Glock section (how else could I have won a Glock kit?), and most likely because I have complained about the trigger. (come-on compare it to a 1911)
I share my complaints without solicitation or any desire of my audience. In fact some may say that I should keep this drivel to myself.
I cannot however sit idle and let those around me read in peace. and therefore, I report out on the receipt and installation of
the FTF Ghost Trigger.
I'll have to say, When my prize was announced, I was unsure what I won.
I mean ... a GHOST TRIGGER. This should be good for Invisible Zombies, I just know it.
My search on the internet left me still as confused, but I was pretty sure I was going to get a bent piece of metal. Wahooooooo!
But what I got was a chunk of bent metal and some springs
All of these parts were called, drop-in. But no instructions.
Do do I drop them in the magazine well, or do I drop them in the chamber.
Seriously, I had to hit the web and grab the UNOFFICIAL GLOCK ARMORERS MANUAL, (pretty good stuff!)
the disassembly was clearly outlined in the free-online manual, the actual process was a piece of tiramisu, or better
Part removal was straight forward, push out a pin while jiggling the Slide Stop, then the trigger group/assembly comes out flopping and wiggling Much like pulling an overdone lobster out of the pot. Funny Parts. There is absolutely no way an average person can determine how these Glocks work, Stuff just seems to slide all over other stuff i guess. Never did find anything that looked like a Safety. Amazing those Germanic Austrians of European Descent.
The re-assembly was also incredibly easy, just like the pictures.
Well, not really, my fingers weren't as nice as those in the pictures.
The real test will be firing. (tomorrow, in the back yard perhaps?).
But dry firing certainly was much, much lighter than I recall. It took about 30 minutes to follow the instructions, show my Grandson while disassembling and reassembling. I didn't measure the before and after, but I'll believe the specs.
If someone just wants to have some fun and fully strip that radar evading frame and put some new parts in, then this is the kit.
It's hard to have more fun than this for only $20 or so. Heck. You'll even end up with a bag of parts that you will clearly mark and store somewhere for the rest of your life.
Some real highlights of this adventure included, trying to figure out why the plunger spring did not go with the parts marked plunger in the exploded diagram. Guess this is one of the secret things from Glock.
The only other thing that makes sense to me tonight is to post a copy of this over on the Liberal Forum.
