    So I took my Glock 19 Gen3 to the range yesterday to have a little fun. However it ended up being a trip of trying to figure out what was going on with my gun. First shot out of the gun was one pull of the trigger and BOOM BOOM gun went off twice. Thought to myself thats odd pulled the trigger again and same thing two shots with one trigger pull. Needless to say it continued to happen off and on the rest of time I was there. A few mags ran flawlessly some were half and half some were all double bursts. Has anyone else ever had this happen or know of what could be the possible cause of this?

    This happened to me once - I'm pretty sure this is what happened:

    I was not gripping the gun tightly enough and it pivoted about the middle of the grip so that the trigger reset, then as the slide closed and the gun pivoted forward, so the gun fired twice rapidly - like a "bump fire".

    But it sounds like yours is doing this repeatedly, so I'd suspect a mechanical problem and have it inspected and repaired by a professional gunsmith immediately to avoid any legal trouble from possessing an automatic weapon, if it has some mechanical defect which is causing it to fire more than one round per pull of the trigger.

    Out of curiosity have there been any modifications or after-market parts installed in the gun?

    Either send it to glock or just change the trigger and connector assembly. Something's worn or broken. It's easy to change the parts.

    If this is not a stock trigger, please list the improvements you did or had done.

    When's the last time you cleaned it? If you have too much junk in the firing pin channel, it can cause the striker to stick. I had that happen to me before, and have seen other threads where that was the issue.

    I see your running a ghost connector. What else (springs, polish)?

    This is one of the reasons why people say don't modify the trigger on a carry weapon. I guarantee that second shot was a flyer.

    Now onto my assessment given limited info. The trigger is sufficiently light enough to where you are unintentionally popping off two shooting from reset.

    Either take it to an armorer / qualified gunsmith or send it to Glock and have the engagement checked.

    I don't know where in MN you are, but drop me a PM. I've got a pretty good idea why your 19 is doubling.

    I was getting unintentional double taps
    with a Ghost Rocket 3.5 short reset connector.
    Changed to Glock OEM 3.5 and NY1 and problem solved.
    Of course the NIB Gen 3 G27 trigger never really had a problem in the first place.

    I only have the ghost connector in it. I thought of that also so I took it out and put my stock connector back in and it still did the same thing. And yes it was clean ill have to check the firing pin channel though and make sure no lint or pieces of cloth from cleaning are in there. And I'll be bringing it Monday to a glock armorer to have it looked at.

    Which parts did you polish and how much did you polish them?

    I suspect you now have an engagement issue between the firing pin and the trigger bar.

    I didn't polish anything like I said above the only thing I had done was the ghost connector and after putting the stock connector back in it still did it.

    The certified armorer will check engagement for you.

    I'm betting your firing pin safety spring is not installed correctly, as in it's not inside the firing pin safety. It's probably lying sideways underneath your firing pin safety.

    I'll make sure to check that out that would make a lot of sense. If that's not the case then in it goes on Monday. Thanks for all the help guys!!
