  1. Impatiently waiting for a large frame version to be released (have a .45 and 10mm that need upgrades)
  2. Yes, mine was also a FedEx issue, not a Timney one.
  3. My latest order was delayed about 5 business days because of the cold snap in the area. Normally it's delivered very quickly.
  4. I hadn't thought about the striker spring as part of the recoil system, but you're right, it would retard the slide going back, and partially going forward with a standard Glock trigger. With the Timney, it would slow the slide more going back and not at all going forward. Best bet is to experiment and see what works best for your gun and load.
  5. I normally use a 13# recoil spring for my competition loads (130 power factor) with my G34. For pistols it's generally a 147 grain bullet with N320 powder. I did addition testing with my G34 and I was getting best results with an 11# recoil spring and a 115 grain bullet. The slide just seems to cycle better, and the sights return to the original point of aim. Let's me fire faster and more accurately, but it may be specific to this gun. As always, YMMV. It's best to experiment with different springs, bullets, and amounts of powder. The other 9mm pistols (a 1911 and 2011) will still b
  6. I generally use what's labeled a "competition" striker spring (4#) with my Glocks, which is why I only use Federal primers with them. With the Timney I'll try heavier (standard) springs and see if I can tell the difference.
  7. Good info. I'll try the standard striker spring to see if I can tell the difference. At the least it would allow me to use primers other than Federals.
  8. Yes, but to my knowledge that doesn't matter. I have read (it's on the Internet so it must be true ) that since the Timney trigger is basically a single action one the striker spring doesn't factor in to the trigger weight. It's essentially set up like a 1911. The only thing that I think would affect it is the connector, and that's the JG one that was there before.
  9. I left in the Johnny Glock one. At some point I might experiment with others, but his is an excellent connector as is.
  10. The Johnny Glock's trigger is an excellent standard Glock trigger, but the Timney is a different beast altogether. Rather than fine tune the internals it replaces the Glock mechanism with what's essentially a single action sear, resulting in a much shorter and lighter trigger pull. Much better than what anyone can do to improve the Glock trigger.
  11. Any idea when a large frame (G20/G21) version will be released?
  12. Okay, an update. I measured the trigger pull by pulling the trigger until I felt the wall just before the sear would release. I then measured the force required to release the sear at around 1 lb 9 oz. This point is where my finger would return to after discharging a round and resetting the trigger. I've ignored the initial takeup for the first round. It's just a single data point with one gun. Don't know how it would change if I experimented with different connectors, but it's so much lighter and shorter than anything else I've tried I don't feel the need to optimize beyond what
  13. Installed the Timney in my G34, replacing a Jonny Glock trigger. No issues at all.
