My trigger jobs shorten the sear and change the angle of the sear.

Change the angle of the firing pin safety ramp on the trigger bar. Change the angle and round out the firing pin safety plunger.

Polish trigger bar, connector, firing pin, safety plunger.

Glockworx competition spring kit and V3 connector. Lone wolf trigger stop trigger housing.

I also eliminate trigger take up, but rather not divulge the process as it can result in a full auto if not done properly.

The end result is an excellet competition trigger...1.5-2.5# trigger pull(depending on the shooters request) with less than 3/32" take up, zero overtravel, and a crisp reset. This has taken a bit of trial and error, some ruined parts, and some damaged tooling.



For those inexperienced in machine work, I don't suggest attempting to change the angle or remove material. The spring kit and connector will greatly improve your stock setup.

I did some research and read the awesome reviews, I'm set on buying the Glockworx v3 connector and a spring kit, all for around 25 bucks. Maybe do a light polish job on some parts with my dremmel too! It seems from alot of the reviews that the v3 system is alot better than the Ghost rocket system. Can't wait to order this! Anyone looking for a trigger system- check out Glockworx V3. Getting married and doing the 7 day cruise thing in 2 weeks, but as soon as i get back- its ordered! Ill keep ya posted on how it turns out for sure! Thanks so much for the info Willfullyarmed!

Oops. He said the "D" word.
Files, Sandpaper, stones and Flitz (or simicrome).
And yeah, the v3 pretty much drops right in.

Dremel is a godsend for polishing.

The V3 needs nothing to drop in.

I guess I'm just old fashioned. I actually enjoy the hand polishing route. Sort of a zen like thing.

The cloth dremel wheel and some flitz made mine shine like a mirror in no time. Just go slow and be careful. The q-tips with flitz work well too, just slower.

I'll be careful and go slow with the cloth polish wheel. Just a decent shine is all, bur free. If the wheel seems to much, Ill go the "ZEN" route. So can I find this Flitz stuff at home depot/ lowes? First time ever doing this to any of my handguns. Thanks fellas! So glad I found this forum/site! D.

I picked up a case at the local auto parts store - sorry, don't remember what I paid. A little goes a long long way - ill probably be dead before I use it all up. You might also look for a rouge cloth - usually you can find them at jewelry stores - they put a great polish on slides and frames.

Sounds good I'll swing into autozone, sorta reminds me of the days in Desert Storm cleaning and polishing sand and grit out of your weapon. Lol Much appreciated! D.
