ZEV Tech Duty Trigger

Glockworx has a new aftermarket trigger that they are marketing as a duty / defense gun trigger. Has anyone tried it? Feedback?

Does it come with gold pixie dust or is that optional?

I think it's definitely worth it. I think it allows you to curve bullets too, Angelina style..

Actually, they start at $150. $250 is for the Ultimate Kit which includes a bunch of other parts including a skeletonized striker. Considering that the trigger is made out of a solid aluminium and that's the list price, it's not unreasonable.

I would get the one with adjustable travel for the same price though. I have their stainless steel trigger (ultimate kit) on my G35, and it's fantastic!

I was wondering why they made the duty trigger when their other Fulcrum adusable is available, for the same cost even.

Do you see the adjustment part of the trigger as something that could lead to a failure and therefore wouldn't be recommend for a duty/defense gun?

The duty trigger was made at the request of several law enforcement departments. It has a shorter pre travel and a shorter over travel then a stock trigger but is not adjustable like the fulcrum. The fulcrum was designed as a competition trigger and the duty was designed for carry.
And a lot of law enforcement departments wont allow any kind of adjustable trigger.

Can you provide a list of LEA's that requested this trigger?

I understand the request, however at this time I can not. There are a lot of agencies that are doing test and review and for obvious reason I cant say who they are.. There are officers that use the duty and or fulcrum, where their department does not care what they use...

I can't believe any LEA would be dumb enough, to not use the Glock OEM trigger.

Doesn't mean it isn't true

And please tell me how it's dumb? Are u implying that a plastic trigger is more reliable than an aluminum one? Or that a plastic nubbin is a better safety than a actual safety spring?

Look I was just giving info, we can debate OEM triggers vs "aftermarket" all day long.. If u like the factory then please stick with it. Just know there are other options. That's it. I wasn't trying to get into a debate... Geeezzz way to make a new guy feel welcome... Lol

Craig, thanks for coming here to explain your new product. I'm guessing the skeptics have never tried your products or services. I can certainly verify that the Glock trigger is made like a toy compared to the Fulcrum. I was trying to welcome you before you replied, but I spent too much time on your site trying to see if you mention a money-back guarantee; I've never needed one.

Thank you.. I wasn't even coming in as a company rep like I said I was just offering info on the trigger.. And if u needed a refund or didn't care for something I know that is a easy fix.. I don't handle sales or the web site. I do all the grip and slide work....

I figured that might be a solution for those questioning the worth of the triggers.

I've never heard of any kind of law enforcement agency allowing their officers to adjust duty weapons from stock, ESPECIALLY not the trigger.

It has nothing to do with reliability. It has to do with liability.

I think Craig agrees with you. He stated in his original post that this was the reason Glockworx designed the Duty model -- so that it was not adjustable. I don't think it was ever stated that the individual officers might be authorized to install the triggers themselves.

Perhaps they want to lessen the chance of the city's liability by installing triggers with a much more robust trigger safety. Possible? And wouldn't you think that increased reliability would translate to decreased potential for liability?

I didn't realize that I was getting involved in a product advertisement. Please just ignore my comment.

The Glock was supposed to let LEAs transition from revolvers to hi-cap semi-auto pistols, with a minimum of training. The internal safeties negated the requirement, for a manually operated safety. The OEM trigger required the trigger movement, to fully cock the firing pin and provide more resistance, than single action pistols. It seems, the first thing a lot of people want to do is turn their Glock into a gun that feels like a single action trigger or a cocked revolver.

An aftermarket trigger will be pointed out, to the jury, during the trial, after it was used legally. Just JMPO.

I dont think I was advertising anything. I offered the difference between the two triggers.. And what it was designed for.

So will the aftermarket sights and large capacity mags, along with any blips on an officers record.

Isn't that why departments do a T & E?

If they find a product that can improve the reliability and help save people lives shouldnt they explore it? Maybe it passes their evaluation maybe it dosent, but to dismiss it without trial is a bit judge mental dont ya think?? Do you have the stock sights on your glock? Why not? Because there are better options?? Someone had a better idea then the stock glock sights?

I DO have the original sights that came on all my Glocks and the original triggers. I rather like the Glock trigger. The OEM stuff all works just fine, for me.

You're right, I am judgmental and don't apologize, for it.

I would like to see your proof that your product, or any other will improve reliability or "help people save lives". Maybe, we need to do it for the children. I didn't see any results of any "T&E", either. That looks like pure assumption. I am judgmental, I judged the Glock, as it came from the factory, to be OK without any mods.

Just another T&E internet rumor. All that I really see here is some "if & maybe" stuff.

I am glad you like the glock the way it is. We obviously like glocks as well or we wouldnt be having this conversation.

I was using a blakent statement when I said save lives etc. (moving on)

Proof: SMYRNA, Ga. - Thursday GLOCK, Inc. announced that Team GLOCK member KC Eusebio competed in the World Speed Shooting Championship (the "Steel Challenge") in Frostproof, Fla., Nov. 1-4, 2012, and won the High Overall Award. This was the first time in the competition's history that a GLOCK boasted the lowest elapsed time over the eight stages of the course of fire.

The glock shooting team uses our triggers isnt that some sort of proof??

I mean what kind of proof do u want?? If the shooters from glock use them they must be somewhat better right?? IMO For what we do.. Every product made isnt for everyone I understand that.

Just because I didnt give you a list name and phone numbers or departments currently using or evaluating dosent mean its a myth or internet rumor. A rumor would be making a statement about a product I have no experience with..

So we can agree to disagree
