Default New to Glock: Trigger Questions

I've been shooting and reloading for a few years. I had accumulated so much .40 brass that I decided I needed to get a gun to go with it. I bought a Glock 35 and like a lot about it:
Its ultra reliable, easy to clean, low cost parts, easy to add accessories. If was stranded and had to pick one pistol for hunting and PD it would be a Glock.
The only thing I don't like is the trigger. I have mostly shot S&W revolvers up to this point and they have great triggers.
Here is what I've tried up to this point:
I got a 3.5 lb disconnect and spring kit. I smoothed all the parts and installed the disconnect and springs. It was lighter and smoother. I next got a Vanek "Classic trigger" it's even smoother and lighter, but still a very long pull and I never know when its going to break. It looks like the next step is a $250 ultimate fulcrum trigger or something like that. How close to a "glass break" trigger can you get with aftermarket parts? Am I trying to make a Glock do something it was never designed to do? I'm trying to make a Glock into a kind of a Bullseye gun and maybe that's just not possible for that platform. Should I just let the Glock be a Glock and move on to a different pistol with a better (for me) trigger?

Thanks,

Jeff

I've never heard of or seen a Glock with a 1911 "glass break" trigger. It may be possible; however, I doubt I'd invest that kind of money. Perhaps you may want to look at another platform and keep the Glock for what it is - a Glock...

Once you try a 1911 with the correct trigger setup at approx 4lbs, you may forget about the G.., the Gl...., the Glllooocck (there, I said it).

S&W revolvers and 1911a1's are the only handguns I have found that I can get decent trigger pulls on.

I couldn't agree with you more. Turning a Glock into a match grade target gun is like marrying a midget and asking her to wear 18" heels to look taller. Makes no sense to me. If you want a tall wife don't marry a midget. (political correctness alert!)

Thanks for the replies. I'm impressed with the Glock's accuracy. For a cheap pistol it's very good. I think with a better trigger it could be great. However I don't think this is the market they are going for.

You'll never find a pistol that equals the trigger of the 1911, IMHO...matter of fact, the feel either. the SA pull on my 4566TSW is almost as good as a 1911.

Let me clarify my position: For a quality pistol the Glocks are very cost effective.
