    The new sider lock manual trigger has been a godsend for those of us who prefer IWB holsers, the trigger really works and is effective from standard and long slide glock pistols all the way down to sub compact models.
    The included instructions were weak compared to the website instructions but once you follow the companies website instructions youll have the trigger ready to rock in 10 minutes flat.
    Youll need a punch and some magnifier to see things but its really a breeze to drop the safety in.
    The issue of manual safeties on a glock like my model 22 in 40 sw is apparently an issue of contention for some glock devotees.
    All I can say about the sider lock is it saves my life every time its switched on.:embarassed:

    i dont want one on my glocks....
  4. My bugger hook is my 'safety.' Don't want to be hunting for a button to push in a self-defense situation.

    If I was worried about the trigger system on Glocks, I'd carry a XD instead.

  7. And fumblfking around for that damn button can get you killed in a high stress situation.

    If you can't handle how a Glock works, get something else, like a XD with a grip safety.

    I couldn't agree more. This is the dumbest idea. Let me put the safety on the trigger so I have to violate a rule of firearm safety to use it. Shouldn't it be called a "not-safety".

    I have one on my 26. It's just like anything else, practice makes perfect. As for high stress situations how do you know you won't shoot yourself in the foot while drawing? You don't think you would because you've practiced. Same thing with the safety. It's just a matter of opinion. If someone likes it and you don't that doesn't make it "dumb". To each their own.

    I also have one on my G19. I am amazed at the haters that come out on something like this that is a personal choice. It makes me feel more comfortable about putting a loaded gun in my pants or anywhere else I conceal carry. I bought a Glock not because of the safeties but because of it's reputation and reliability. I am very pleased with Glock's ease of operation. Mine now has 4 safeties built in instead of 3.

    There is already a safety on the trigger from glock. If this can be magicaly turned off and the trigger pulls itself, how does another manual safety on the trigger change anything.
    This safety is actually less protected by the trigger guard. If human error can defeat all 3 already there then it just takes a tad more negligence to defeat that 4th.

    These guns dont just go off. They fire when someone pulls the trigger and that person sometimes blames the gun. This is just something else to blame when the gun handler is irresponsible.
    I also think this is foolishness. I really think you shouldn't carry a glock if you cant be safe with it in its stock form.
    If you can shoot yourself in the foot with the stock gun, who is to say that you wont turn this safety off and then shoot yourself in the foot. Its equally as negligent.

    I have one on my 23, but it only gets used when the gun is off of my person, which is very rarely. Originally purchased it because I had little ones running around. Still use it when I take the gun off and lock it up in the truck.

    The sider lock is perfect for the sub compact glock model, Plaxico Burress might still have both working family jewels if he had one on his gun. lol
    I draw my gun from a serpa sportster and I index right along the siderlock, by the time Im at sight Level.....BANG!
    My apologies to those who feel so passionate about the stock glock trigger, apparently manual control of the glock trigger is secondary to arrogant notions of immortality.

    Have you noticed any alignment problems after installing the siderlock trigger?
    Im seeing a gouge and a deep scrape just ahead of the serial number tag inside the frame on the left side near the muzzle-end.

    I don't think the trigger would have anything to do with that.
    That seems to be more of a recoil spring issue. Time to replace maybe?

    I just installed one on my Glock 27. Haven't fired it yet, but I sure will once the weather breaks. The trigger is a little fatter too... feels nice.

    I don't carry my Glock chambered, but now I may since I have that little extra confidence of safety. To me I'd rather be 'fumbling' trying to push the siderlock button than chambering a round in a stress situation...

    To each is own for sure.
