    Started with the 25 cents trigger job, then got lwd overtravel stop, again got the ghost rocket. But still the trigger travel is too far. I want to feel the trigger close 1911 not a double action take up. I've read about changing the trigger spring, changing the trigger Bar hole and heat bending 90*. I'm lost without actually seeing a picture. Can anybody post a picture or a link on how to improve/shorten pre travel...

    The first portion of the trigger pull (the pre travel) removes the safeties. If you block the trigger rearward, or mod the trigger to limit forward travel the safeties may not be engaged during normal carry and use.

    The 1911 uses a thumb operated safety, the GLOCK uses the pre travel on the trigger to accomplish the same task. Two different type designs, two different types of trigger pull.

    The firing pin safety clearance of the trigger bar is the limiting factor for any "real" Glock trigger job. There seems to be different clearances in most of the pistols, or at least the 5 I have, plus every other one I've examined. They're all different, thus limiting the amount of pre-travel that can be removed. The drop safety is not really an issue with the amount of travel reduction even possible anyway.

    Eliminating trigger take up:

    Make sure the Glock is unloaded
    1. Remove the slide from the frame.
    2. Move the trigger forward so that the right wing of the cruciform sear (facing forward) is slightly on the right hand portion of the drop safety.
    4. Drill a tiny hole in the ejector housing in front of the left drop safety arm of the cruciform sear.
    5. Counter sink the hole so the slide doesn't rub on the pin.
    6. Insert the pin and put the slide on and cock the striker.
    7. Pull the trigger safety away from the trigger and mark it where it meets the frame( this is in back of the trigger).
    8. Reslot the trigger safety at the mark.

    Take up will be minimized and all 3 safeties will work

    Sounds great!

    But I really could use pictures.

    I have used a Rocket 3.5 pound sear and polished all parts smooth and it helps.

    But your sounds better.

    this is not entirely true. i have the glockworx level 3 competition trigger kit and it feels so similar to a 1911. it has no pre or over travel, the safety engages, and this **** is light and smooth!!!

    Duck of Death,,I would like to see some pictures also. I work on Glocks (trigger jobs, changing parts, etc.) and would like to give this a try. Is this the same as an ejector housing with a trigger overtravel stop? Thanks!!

    I have tried that... all worked except for step 8.
    Resloting the trigger safety is not that easy.

    I did it :thumbsup: except step #8

    The trigger feels good, the creep is very short. Can't wait to try on the USPSA Match, I really love to trigger slap on very close target.

    Thanks DOD :hugs:

    I wonder if you'll be allowed to shoot with a disabled trigger safety? It's easy to do using just a single edge razor blade. Do yourself a favor, and trim the notch so the trigger safety works please.

    USPSA requires working safeties and no external mods. were you able to use the gun in the USPSA match?
