    @9MX
    trigger pull now is about 40% lighter than the orig trigger pull. definitely more lighter and smoother.

    @vega
    hehe... the difference felt on the trigger pull is real. :)

    Could you provide us a link of the $0.25 trigger job? I've seen one before, complete with instructions.

    Thanks!

    yup, di ako nakarating sa practice yesterday, nanghawa ng cold virus si richard, pati si misis nag absent sa work, tumuloy sa pagiging fever, sana magaling na kami pag dating ng club shoot, btw did you bring any siomai?:supergrin:

    how do you know that that is 40% lighter? did you use a trigger gauge? problem with glocks is, if you go too light, it feels like mush,what you're looking for is a clean, crisp and suprising break. it can be done, problem is, marami kang parts na masisira and magiging suki ka muna ng final option. btw, when polishing, use 1200 sandpaper and buff with dremel :supergrin:

    didn't use any gauge really its more of my estimate.

    a note however with polishing, do not polish anything stronger than a polishing liquid... the idea behind the $.25 trigger job is to make the surface area of all metal that make contact smoother... thus providing a crisp and smoother pull vs. the sluggish and harder pull of the original glock. so when i polished my G19, i did just that... polish... and not shave off metal... (which i think is the most common mistake in doing the polish job... based on the post that i see). you know how it is when you polish something to make it shiny (makintab)? that's just what i did and nothing harsher than that. :)

    What brand of polishing liquid did you buy, if you don't mind. Is it locally-made, or imported?
