I just finished trigger jobs on my Gen 4 Glock 19 & 30. I polished all metal on metal parts, replaced the connectors with the new Double Diamond, & installed competition springs. The pull is obviously lighter, but the pull is clean and the break is crisp. Couldn't be more satisfied.

Nothing like being proud of your work.

Yep. I'm proud of the work, the results, and of finally ignoring all that BS thrown around on this forum about altering triggers.

What is that all about, anyway? We should suffer gritty, heavy triggers?

This all made me laugh. Thanks guys.

Hope the new trigger works well and shoots straight.

How much would that cost for a gunsmith to do, any ideas? I'm mechanical, but I don't think I want to risk it in a brand new gun.

I followed the instructions on polishing the various parts in a book and it made for a much smoother trigger feel. :)

Cheaper than a gunsmith and the book contains lots of other useful information as well.

How much would a gunsmith (Glock certified armorer ) charge?

They would refuse to do work as described because it is against the contract they signed with Glock to become a certified armorer.

Once your weapon turned toy bites you, and it well might, you have only yourself to blame. Once you decide to go back to factory specs, then a Glock armorer can help you.

Will a certified Glock armorer install a 3.5 lbs Glock trigger kit in a G17 ?

There is some truth to that but to call a person's weapon a toy just because they chose to install parts not made by Glock is a bit over the top. That said, I would never install a part in any gun that requires modification ( read Ghost connector). But let's face it, the contract you speak of is just as much about protectionism as it is about quality factory parts. There are literally thousands of parts made for Glocks by other manufacturers that work just fine. And there some pretty crappy ones as well. Do a lot of reading before you buy. BTW, Glocks are easy to work on. You don't need a Glock certified armorer unless your gun has a malfunction issue. Most qualified smiths can drop in Glock parts. If you polish stuff like I did, the warranty will no longer cover a malfunction. A risk I am more than willing to take.
