    You can tune all your ignition parts bearing surfaces and forget to do the channel liner and spring cups. This, alone, can cause you to have stacking and a rough feel if your spring cups are binding in the channel liner. Remember the channel liner and cups already fit snug when not in the gun. Punching the channel liner in the slide obviously will tighten this 'snugness'. It's an area of a trigger polish often overlooked and is essential for the 'complete' trigger polish.

    2 comments: 1, of you are trying to remove the feel of the trigger break, so you can smoothly pull the trigger all the way through for each shot, you are using the trigger wrong. 2, I have never seen a 90 degree sear face on a Glock trigger bar. Notice the angle. You have to keep that angle when polishing.

    Yea, it's less than 90 degrees in that photo. Point was not to round that edge.

    I don't know that not having a wall before the break is using the trigger wrong. Quite a few people want the trigger to break with no interference just the break. I don't believe not having the wall is what gets you in trouble, it's trying to get a 4.5lb trigger pull down to 3lbs.

    eta - Corrected the 90 degree, bit, BTW.

    SO you are trying to get rid of the site bounce when dry firing, strengthen your hand grip strength and I it won't be an issue

    Holding the trigger at the wall as you aim is how you shoot a Glock accurately. If your finger is moving through the full movement of the trigger, without holding at a break point, you cannot be as accurate, because it is the movement of your trigger finger and sympathetic movement of the other fingers on that hand that is about 90% of the reason for inaccuracy. It makes no difference how smooth the trigger is, because the problem is the movement of muscles in your hand, not hitches in the parts.

    If the shooter can isolate his trigger finger from the rest of his hand, there is no additional sympathetic movement from pressing the trigger all the way through. If he can't isolate it, there will be sympathetic movement regardless.

    It's easy enough to demonstrate this by dry firing each way at a blank wall and watching the sights. A competent shooter can press the trigger all the way through with no movement in the sights.

    With a live gun, all shooters have an innate reaction to the discharge that originates in their subconscious. That is a completely different thing.

    Obviously it's easier to operate a lighter, smoother trigger - especially with a light gun. If you can press the trigger straight back, the only reasons for the sights to move are your overall wobble and residual energy transmitted to the frame from excess triggering force.

    If you can't press the trigger straight back, the delta from that will be added to all the other tolerances in your process.

    Not entirely sure how the conversation turned to dry fire but the issue isn't with dry fire. As mentioned earlier I have no problem with most other triggers. There are a few triggers, like glock, that I find distracting.

    It isn't an over the top problem but it an annoyance I have tried to fix for some time.

    I should have been more clear. Dry fire was mentioned as a point of comparison. Then posts started popping up about sights jumping during fry fire.:dunno:

    I prefer a rolling break with less wall.
