    I bought a used 19 gen4 at a LGS yesterday. It looks new with trigicon hd sights and the tag said ghost trigger. I ran 100 rounds through it today and it ran fine. The trigger is at 5.5 pounds. It has some travel, then a wall and short break. If I dry fire it without the mag, sometimes it does not break without a firm press at the end of travel. If the mag is in, it is better. What do you think I should do? Thankyou!

    What to do? Trade it in on a good gun.
    EG: Soon available CZ P-10 C
    H&K VP9
    Walther PPQ
    Any CZ product for that matter would be a major step up from a glock.

    ^ I don't know about all that. LoL

    Just shoot it, dude. If the trigger still feels funny, order a regular 5.5 or a 5lb "dot" connector and plug it in. They're like five bucks.

    No big deal.

    You might try field stripping it and oiling all the points Glock recommends. Just a tiny bit on each spot. You can google Glock oiling points, might be in your manual can't remember, but in any case, the one point that affects consistent trigger pull the most is the one between the trigger bar and the connector. A drop there can make a big difference in pull consistency in a very short time.

    Good luck, keep us informed on what you find.

    I have several pistols with nice triggers. I like the feel of the Glock and want it to be dependable.

    Did you measure the trigger pull weight with a trigger pull gage? Or are you saying it has a standard 5.5lb connector? that is not the actual pull weight. I'd get rid of that ghost connector, it has to be hand fitted by an experienced Glock smith to make it run right. No way for carry.

    I think you should get on a Glock forum and bash Glock pistols. Just kidding, only goobers would do that. I would do as another said and have an armorer return it to stock. Good luck.

    Benton, why don't you get to the nearest IDPA/USPSA/Steel Challenge/3 gun match to you, and see how many, not, shooters, run H&Ks, or Walthers. You won't find any. CZ75s are very popular though because of the short reset trigger and low bore axis. Do you actually own and shoot all those guns you mentioned? Or are you just talking internet yadada.

    Know this guy Bob Vogel, he shoots a G34 and is barely able. Why don't you try a 3.67 second El Prez run with your guns?

    So you most likely have a 3.5lb Ghost connector to yield a 5.5lb pull

    I guess it is. Like I said, it only feel funny without the mag in as the trigger is pulled.

    It sounds like you have a Ghost connector with a TCT that needs a hair more shortening. Take the connector out. Drag the TCT across sandpaper a few times then polish the end of the TCT. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, the easy fix is to change it out for a Glock dot or minus connector.

    scio, so you were there when Bob made that run? I've only seen a few sub 4's in the last 20 years, he is amazing. And what is interesting is that he started with STI's and went to Glocks. Taran started with a G24 and went to STI's.

    Benton, here is the USPSA classifier El Prez. All you need is a shot timer, about $100, 3 target stands, 6 1x2 sticks, and 3 USPSA targets. Just set it up and video your runs with a Walther and H&K and a CZ. It's easy as eating a pie... Be sure to show your hits......
