I replaced trigger bar in my G19 - smooth trigger for a G17. Disappointed.

I would most likely never even noticed the trigger serrations on my G19 trigger if it was not talked about on GT. It never bothered me at all - thought some folks obsessing over the little edges on the trigger were making something out of nothing.

Then I got a G21 with a smooth trigger.

After a few range trips - those SHARP JAGGED DAGGERS on the G19 trigger had to go.

So I ordered a smooth trigger and a spring from Midway.

Got my new trigger & trigger spring late yesterday - got up this morning and decided I would "do the job".

Spring looked fine - but I figured why not start off with a new one - keep the old one as a spare.

Less than 10 minutes later (most of which was cleaning) job is done.

I have not test fired it yet - but all seems good when I dry fire.


I was looking forward to spending a little quality time
"gunsmithing" my Glock - this job was too easy - and am a little bit disappointed that there was not more challenge.

I have had the gun about 5 years - never done more than a field strip - the area around the trigger had some crud built up - it needed to be cleaned - I think I may over oil a little.

Get an HK, FN or SIG. That will cure your problem. You get to use a punch, hammer, and hope you can find all the little springs on the FN. Plus a 10 minute job it is not. The FN 5.7 is the worst.

I own all the above and recently changed out some parts on the FN and HK. Made me appreciate the simplicity of the Glock's.

Oil has been removed -

It was just an accumulation of 5 years worth of an extra drop here or there.

Since it is so easy to remove the trigger bar - I may start cleaning it every couple years.

I hear you. Changed trigger bar and connector - took all of 10 minutes.

Heck, if you want a challenge, get a CZ75 BD. You have to make dummy assembly pins, chase little springs that inevitably go flying, get about 1500 little pieces into about a cubic inch - loads of fun!

Yes if you want a challenge a CZ is much harder to work on than a Glock, Sig's are a bit tricky but HK and FN are worse.

Replacing the hammer spring on a P64 or SIG P6 is a fun time too
