    I was searching some performance upgrades for glocks and came across trigger systems. The two that I saw were lightning strike and phantom triggers. Which do some of you guys prefer and why? All responses are appreciated

    I have a lightening in my g31, it allows you to take out slack and make your trigger crisper

    What's the cost?

    A Glockworx V3 connector is the greatest single improvement I've found. Better than the lone wolf and ghost connector.

    A polish of trigger components is an important improvement as well.

    A lone wolf trigger-stop housing eliminates over travel, greatly improving reset.

    So far, its cost me under $40.

    I've also reshaped the sear surface and reshaped the striker tab.

    My next improvement will be a drill and tap of the trigger bar to a 6-32 thread and inserting a 6-32x1/4" set screw to eliminate take-up.

    The RYG Phantom trigger is engineered with innovative features conveniently housed within the trigger pad, for the ultimate performance experience, in a sleek, seamless design.

    This unique fully adjustable (drop-in) trigger is CNC machined from billet 6061 T6 aluminum and hard anodized to withstand the affects of environmental stress and chemical exposure.

    The Phantom Trigger offers both pre-travel take-up and over-travel engagement adjustments, thus providing the user with optimal control and customizability. Tuning action is achieved by two opposing, conveniently located 2/56 inch adjustment screws. This quality allows the user to precisely tune the feel of the trigger to his or her preferred specifications, including desired pull weight and fore and aft travel distance.

    The Phantom Trigger utilizes a distinctive, spring loaded, anatomical engagement safety, which maintains full responsiveness and reliability without ever sacrificing safety. The Phantom Trigger’s precision-machined trigger bar boasts mirror polishing on all engagement and contact surfaces. This element greatly increases the sensitivity and overall performance of the trigger.

    The Phantom Trigger is compatible with all Glock calibers and size formats, and is easily installed by the consumer. The dynamic features of the Phantom Trigger allow the user to transform their stock factory Glock trigger into a highly accurate, dynamic and reliable trigger system.



    Lightning Strike triggers are CNC-machined from 2024 aircraft aluminum with Rockwell 70 hardcoat. Tightly-held tolerances remove trigger slop and free movement for smooth, consistent trigger pull. Reduces length of trigger pull by 50%!! Drop-in installation; requires no modification to gun. Trigger face uses a wider trigger safety and contoured edges...easier on finger than factory trigger. Doesn't alter factory pull weight.

    I put a Ghost 5lb Tactical Connector (adjustable) and a Lightning Strike Firing Pin Plunger setup in my Gen4 G26. Very sweet! Best trigger out of all my Glocks and I have a few. Highly recommended.
