  1. No way around it. It’s a striker fired pistol. When you pull the trigger, the cruciform pushes the striker back, pushing the rear of the slide up slightly. Insert a loaded mag (recommend snapcaps or used brass) to put pressure on the slide as if it was actually cycling when shooting. You’ll notice the slide slop goes away.
  2. I just dry fired the heck out of mine and greased it. Make sure the connector isnt pinching the trigger bar against the frame. I dont see the need to run a reduced power striker spring to lighten the pull an ounce. Way under #3 with a minus connector. Probably closer to #2.25-2.5
  3. The Apex sure does look like it has the longest reach. I know my Zev has a noticeably longer reach than the Timney.
  4. The connector will affect reach as well. If the bent tab where the trigger bar contacts the connector is lower, it will have a more trigger forward position when it breaks. Higher will be the opposite. I noticed my Zev connector has a more forward set than others.
  5. Just push hard. I dont think Teklok locks down hard enough to keep things from moving for me. I’ll shim it with some velcro to make it tighter.
  6. That screw holds the sear housing down to the ejector housing so it doesnt come up. The lip of the screw catches on the bottom lip of the housing to keep it from coming up.
  7. So are most of the issues with gen 5 guns? i wonder if the ambi slide catch is pinching the trigger shoe or something preventing the trigger bar from dropping all the way? I dont have a gen 5 so I’m just guessing.
  8. i have a Zev OZ9, so gen 3 slide Arent gen 5 guide rods the same diameter as a gen 4? If so could just use a gen 4 to 3 adapter.
  9. I’m gonna say it’s because the sear keeps the striker in the cocked position early so there is more striker spring tension on the recoil spring sooner. Well I’m dumb and didnt pay attention and ordered a flat wire spring. I have a larger diameter jentra tungsten guide rod so the flat spring wont fit.
  10. I’ve been using a 15 lbs recoil spring with factory striker spring. I dont see the purpose of using a lighter striker spring with the Timney trigger. Sure it might lighten the pull 1 oz. but not worth it for increased chance of light primer strikes. Plus the full powered striker spring would give it a faster lock time for those that care about it (I dont). Got a 13 lbs spring on the way to try it out.
  11. It’s not available for large frames, not sure what that has to do with this thread or why it’s even mentioned.
  12. Is that pull weight for both JG and Timney with the OEM striker spring?

    3.5# Trigger

    It’ll get better as it gets used. Mines under 2 lbs 12 ozs with factory striker spring and a - connector.
  14. if you look at the connector with the slide off, it will have a marking. Most common are blank, dot, or minus.
