    Hey All,

    I just got a used glock 22 that the previous owner had used as his comp gun. I was dry firing and now all of a sudden the trigger will not reset. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix or should I take it to the local glock armorer? That being said any local Armorers in Orlando want to have a look at this?

    Thanks
    CG

    It sounds like you have broken trigger spring. You can order them pretty cheap and it takes about 5 minutes to switch them out.

    Hope this helps!

    CG,

    If the new spring doesn't do the trick the previous owner that used it for comp shooting may have altered the trigger bar not allowing the cruciform to engage with the striker lug properly.

    it probably was changed over to a reduced power trigger spring, which doesnt work with a lot of glocks, its a try it and see, some work some dont. anyway, if he was getting away with the lighter trigger spring, sometimes all it takes is a little grunge to build up and the trigger wont reset anymore.

    order a standard trigger spring and replace the one in it, clean it while its apart and you shouldnt have anymore problems.

    The trigger springs that result in a lighter trigger pull are heavier, not lighter. They can also cause failures to reset.

    A reduced power striker spring or a heavy trigger spring can create a problem with trigger reset

    A reduced power striker spring used with a heavier trigger spring almost always will
