    after owning many pistols over the years I decided to get a glock 19..out of the box the trigger was horrible. I got a 3.5 # trigger kit and a s/s recoil spring guide rod.I completely broke it down and polished everything I could get to.after putting it back together ,it feels great.going to the range next week to put a few downrange.I could us any info on smoothing the slide.The first third on pullback is a bit lumpy. I am a tech and like parts to work together..My second polymer gun. First one was a Kahr p380 and was terrible out of the box.went back to Kahr 2 times with multiple issues..seems ok now...

    Careful out there......Only you can protect you..peace

    It just needs to be used to get worn in. Fire a few hundred rounds through it, the lumpy feeling will smooth out. I hated the trigger out of the box as well, and did the 3.5 and couldn't have been any happier.

    Shoot 500-1000 rnds and watch what happens...glory. Keep it lubed and don't clean until 500. Gotta lathe that metal. Just keep pourin lube on her every 150-200 rnds or so.

    I noticed my 17 -2 improved somewhat with the 3.5 Ghost Trigger kit.

    A good trigger kit or some work, helps, but still feels like a semi-cocked striker fire trigger. If you compare with a 1911 style trigger, you will see what you would like to achieve with the Glock, but it will never happen because of the design differences.

    I'll give the Ghost Trigger good marks for approaching a "Great" trigger.
