Gen 4 Glock 19 trigger help?

Recommended Posts

I am currently using a glock 19 for USPSA production. Only modifications are truglo TFO sights. Just getting into competition shooting and eventually will get either a 34/35. I don't want a drastic trigger change from the stock as far as pre-travel or reset because my main reason for getting into this is to maintain proficiency with my duty guns(must be stock). The problem is, my glock 19 has a terrible factory trigger, measured at a 5 pull average of 7.3 pounds with 2000 rounds through it. I carry a sig p229 40 dak on duty and or a glock 26. The 19 is not on our approved list. Glocks are personally owned, but inspected for on duty. I was considering getting a glock 17 for work, but then I would have to turn in the sig. Most of the time I carry the glock 26 with glock 19 mags/xgrips or sometimes with pearce +0 with the 19 mags as reloads depending on the situation. Anyway just looking to get a 4.5 or so trigger with crisp break and standard reset. Would adding the OEM connector accomplish this?

Maybe in a few months I will consider getting a vanek or edge trigger in a 34/35 , but for now I just want to see how I do with the 19 and a decent trigger. Thank You!

I read about people swapping the gen 4 trigger assembly with a gen 3. I never noticed a dramatic difference between gen 3 and 4 triggers, but I had heard they seem to be more consistently 5.5 #. The gen 4 seemto vary a lot. My 26 averaged 5.6# and only has about 500 rounds through it.

The housing is different between Gen3 and 4 and the trigger bar has a protruded bump on the safety plunger depressor. Just change the connector first. Then try the striker spring but that will bring it down in weight of pull as well.

Just to confirm 3.5 connector with 5# striker spring? Should I mess with recoil spring? Trigger spring? I want it to be a carry gun as well as USPSA. If the stock trigger didn't suck, I would have left it. Like I said, when I pick up a 34/35 I may want to look into a comp trigger for a dedicated comp gun. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

Yes put in the connector first. With these slight changes you wouldn't need to change anything else. If it's still to stiff after connector go to 5lb spring

That sounds like a heavy trigger pull for a G19. Do not forget to lubricate the connector and trigger bar, sounds as if yours is dry, dirty or very rough.

Definitely not dirty. I clean it after shooting. It was a bad trigger from the start. I have learned my lesson to try a few. It seems some of the new 17's are coming out with great triggers. I have 2000 rounds through it and it is not any better than when new. My 26 is perfect.

Put this connector in. You'll feel an immediate difference.

I'll second this.

I picked up a new Glock 19 Gen 4 yesterday. After dry firing for awhile, I broke it down to clean it also giving it the .25 trigger job.. I also replaced the connector with the Zev Race Connector... made a huge difference. I used the connector with their competition spring set in the past, when I used to compete with the G19.. nice trigger pull.

The TTI connector is pretty sweet as well.

The problem is you have to buy the connector/springs in a kit and spend approximately $55 in order to get a connector.

They should offer a connector as everyone else does without having to buy a kit.

They sell the connector stand alone shooters connection has it and so does TTI.

The stand alone connector does not show up on the TTI website.

Daniel, In building trigger kits how would you compare the TTI connector to LWD and GW connectors? I have used plenty of the LWD and GW but never tried the TTI.

DK,

Couple questions?

1) I was just given a Glock connector with the "-" on the top. I do not know if it is 3.5# or 4.5. Is it worth using or is the TTI or LW much better?

2}If the connector doesn't make much difference does it make sense to change to a heavier trigger spring before going to a 5# striker spring?

Thank you for the advice and to everyone who responded. I am a new USPSA shooter and in the past I had our Agency Armorer do all work on my pistols.

One more thing. If the 5# striker spring isn't needed to get me to 4.5 -5# range, would you recommend trying it once in awhile during our USPSA training just to get a feel for a more competition like trigger?
