Gen 5 G17 Triggers

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I'm looking for a bit of insight on the following triggers for my Gen 5 G17 MOS. Perhaps my google-fu is lacking, but I haven't been able to find much in terms of advice and reviews, at least in terms of a direct comparison of the Gen 5 models specifically. Above all else, I am looking for a crisp break, and reduced pre-travel. Anyhow, I am trying to decide between the following triggers:

 

1) HSP Skimmer Gen 5

2) Gen 5 Pyramid Ultimate Flat Face Trigger

3) Vanek Gen 5 Classic

4) Vanek Gen 5 GSSF/Master

 

Thanks for your insight!

Guess I must not show up when people search.  Figures as much with my luck.

I just recently switched from the Vanek GSSF/ Master Trigger (fantastic trigger) to a Johnny Glock Competition Trigger. From what you’ve described, you should look at the Johnny Glock, you won’t be disappointed.

DK, as I said, my Google Fu is not the strongest, so I'm sure your trigger is not the only one I have overlooked. How does yours compare to those that I specified?

DK and Johnny Glocks should be at the top of your current list.

Johnny Glock has a bunch of good videos on youtube explaining the physics behind glock triggers.  That's where my next trigger is coming from.

Johnny glock custom triggers are the best you can get. I have them in all my glocks from my carry gun to my race guns.

I will mirror what a lot of others have said.  DK, Johnny, Vanek, all fantastic.

 

My latest love is my Zevtech Flat Faced pro trigger.  Holy...s#!t...

 

With the following im getting a 2 pound 11 ounce break that is crisp as can be, with no over travel.

 

Zev Trigger

Wolf 4.5lb striker

Wolf reduced power firing pin block spring

Zev Pro connector

 

SUPER stoked to run this as im amazed at how crisp and smooth this trigger is after simply dropping it in.  Zev trigger's in the past have been rather finicky with their adjustment screws losing their settings even with Loctite.  This thing has no adjustment screws and should be more reliable but time will tell.  I really, really, really dig the flat face as it fits my finger well and is very easy to index on.
