Have you returned to a stock trigger?

    If you have tried an aftermarket trigger, connector or springs then gone back to stock why did you do so?

    There are benefits to all of the trigger modifications I have tried, but I keep coming back to thinking Glock got it right overall and the other options fall short one way or the other.

    I have the Skimmer in my G17 and the Edge trigger in my G22 and love them both. I have no problem shooting with the stock trigger, but I can shoot better with aftermarkets I put in.

    I tried lightning the triggers and I tried using a NY1 spring and 3.5 connector. I ended up going back to all stock.

    One, the NY1 trigger and I just don't get along well. Some people love the combination. Me, not so much. Went back stock.

    Second, I keep the CCW guns stock for liability reasons. Hope never to have to find out :wow: but want stock for that reason. Since my CCW guns (26 and 19) are stock, I just did the 17 also to keep them all the same.

    I tried the 3.5lb connector, and it is alright, but I had a bump fire once shooting from reset and so now I prefer a little more weight on reset.
    I also like to keep my carry gun stock, and so I went back on my 17 to have some uniformity.
    I may get a "target" pistol one of these days, and I might try some things with that, but for general shooting (range) and carry/self defence the stock trigger good for me.

    I tried Ghost Rocket Ultimate 3.5 connectors and I switched back to stock parts in mine. It feels better to me.

    Same here with a factory connector (G23). Went back to stock 5.5 for CCW.

    I'm still using the Vanek Classic Trigger Kit in my IDPA G17.

    I shot my EDCs better at distance with the 3.5 connector, but went back to stock due to the potential court issues. Since most self-defense encounters are within bad breath distances any way, the stock trigger works fine.

    I was persuaded by Mas's take on the issue.

    Tried a aftermarket trigger. No big deal.Taking gun back to stock to prepare to sell. Given up on this glock ejection problem ever being fixed.

    I've generally gone back to stock. I started shooting Glocks when they were Gen2s; the 3.5lb connector seemed to make a lot of difference in the gun so I just put it in all my Glocks through the Gen3 and 4. But, I've gone back to keeping it factory since the triggers in the Gen3s and Gen4s seem better than the old Gen2s (could be me just having more experience...).

    Glock gen 3 G27 - Trigger Chronology
    1) Glock OEM standard connector and springs;

    Not bad, but two stage and a little gritty.
    2) Ghost Rocket 3.5 and factory springs;
    Light crisp trigger with almost no reset.
    Had some unintended double taps at the range.
    Trigger felt a little light for CC.
    3) Standard connector and NY1;
    Can shoot with it, but feels way too heavy.
    4) Glock OEM "-" connector and NY1;
    Consistent pull (no two stage trigger) and
    more positive reset.
    5) Ghost 3.5 drop in and NY1;
    Same as (4) but just a little cleaner and crisper.

    I can shoot well with 1-5.
    I'm currently running #5.

    Triggers are a personal choice, inexpensive and easy to swap in and out.
    Everyone needs to go through the process of finding thier own way when it comes to triggers -IMHO.

    I've only put in factory Glock - connectors and smooth triggers. To tell the truth, I could live with the box stock setup.

    I installed the "smooth" triggers in all my Glocks. I tried the Glock 3.5 connector. Had it in my "range" gun for several months and finally went back to the normal Glock connector and quit chasing that elusive perfect trigger. I just learned to shoot what I have.

    I never left the stock triggers. In fact, other than sights and sometimes skateboard tape for the grip, I have never made any changes to a glock.

    Stock on all of my Glocks. I sold the one 19 that had a trigger job. The stock ones work great for me after 500 rounds, and it is always fun getting to 500 anyway.
