    Ive noticed on my G19 Gen 4 that the trigger safety rubs on the frame when releasing the trigger. It creates a click as you remove your finger.

    Has anybody else dealt with this?

    Could you be confused with the typical trigger reset sound?

    No, this is well after the trigger bar moves back down allowing the connector to move over and reset.

    For the record, I’m not an expert but I am intimately familiar with how the internals work.

    This is polymer on polymer rubbing. You can see it in the trigger guard. It occurs as you let the trigger safety paddle out.

    I have not seen or heard what you describe on my 19, 34, 42, and 43.

    I don’t experience it on my 23 or 43. Let me try and take a video.

    Maybe being intimate with the internals is why its messed up now?

    Who said I’ve even detail stripped this particular gun?

    Intimate was your word to use first, not mine.

    And let’s say you haven’t detail stripped it.... then detail strip it and see what’s rubbing....

    I’m intimately familiar with how a Glock’s internals work. Remember, I also mentioned I have others. Is that better?

    If I read you correctly, the trigger bar would have to be bent slightly out of spec for this to happen.

    Here's what I would do :
    Your Gen 4 has the notorious "divot" on the trigger bar ear that Glock says is to improve "alignment".
    It's a known culprit that can create additional friction during the trigger pull as it drags against the slide.
    You may also have a serrated trigger shoe that many do not like.

    So, I would try a Gen 3 trigger shoe/bar assembly, smooth shoe.
    It's a $14 part and may cure several ills all in one shot.

    Good idea.
    They may even send the new part pro bono.

    I contacted them and they gave me 2 options.

    1.) Send it to them.
    2.) Take it to a GA and they can send them the part.

    Neither of these solutions are satisfactory. I’d rather buy the part than waste time shipping it or driving to a GA.

    Matter of fact, I already have a smooth trigger showing up in the mail today.

    Bettin' dollars to donuts that the new trigger bar will fix you up.

    The new trigger didn’t fix it. I took it apart again and noticed the littlest bit of flash on the bottom edge of that opening. I knocked it down with some 800 grit wet/dry sandpaper and she is good to go.

    Well, at least you got a smooth trigger shoe and no Gen 4 divot on the bar out of it.
    Win.

    There’s a divot on the new bar...
