How often do you re-visit your .25 cent trigger job?

    I just recently put my Glock collection through a full clean and their first .25 cent trigger jobs. I was amazed at how easy it was. But now I'm wondering how often this needs to be re-done...if at all. The answer is probably based on how much the guns are used, but I was thinking once per year just to make sure everything is smooth.

    What do y'all think?

    I do it until I get it the way I want it.......then I refine all other parts to get a trigger that is light, smooth & crisp.

    You keep doing it and you will probably end up with a gun that you don't want to shoot anymore.

    Should be no need to redo it. Just clean as needed/desired and keep some lube in the connector/trigger bar interface. It's fairly common to use a mix of grease and oil there.

    Once it's polished, it's polished. No need to do it again.

    The parts *will* get powder residue build up. Cleaning them will do it for the most part, but a quick/light hit with the Dremel polishing tool shouldn't be removing any material.

    I shoot damn close to 20,000 rounds a year. I usually just clean them (don't polish) and good to go.

    I used to bother with the .25 trigger job, now I just shoot'em smooth.

    You should give it the 25 cent trigger job once. Once you're satisfied with it, leave it alone. You may inadvertantly start rounding things that need a sharp edge on them to function reliably. Especially if you're going to use the handgun for self defense. :wavey:
