    i have a Glock 26 gen 3
    and a Glock 19 gen 4, ( . Connector)

    Both of them have creep in the trigger break.
    How do i solve this WITHOUT using aftermarket parts.

    Vanek and Glocktriggers use Enhanced OEM Glock trigger bars/triggers.

    See http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1400681 . Also, you can reduce creep by moving to a standard 5.5 connector or even the + connector. The trade off is that you increase the weight of the trigger pull. And with a given connector, I feel you can make the creep less noticeable by decreasing the trigger pull (e.g. 6# trigger spring).

    creep as in pre travel or creep once you took up all the "slack"? Only way I know to reduce pretravel is to buy an aftermarket trigger. Skimmer, fulcrum, I think even the regular glockworx ones too. I have tried them very nice I would almost say single action like. If you mean creep once the slack is up all triggers will have some travel.

    Striker fired pistols all have mushy trigger break. No real way around it. You can not make them break like a SA/DA Revolver and stay anywhere close to safe. Pretravel and over travel can be dealt with. And you can lighten the break. But the nature of a striker fired pistol will never give you the glass like break.

    I would try a Glock Factory "-" connector and a NY1 spring.
    Some folks feel that setup has a more positive feel to it.
    Something like a DA revolver.
    And retains your All Factory Glock Parts requirement.

    Correct, but most shooters think the 7# trigger pull is too heavy for a Glock.

    Creep does not equal pre-travel...

    My g23 and G27 both have mushy triggers. I'm new to Glocks, so I tried to improve it with different connectors and spring combinations, and it just made it worse. I have decided it's just the nature of the beast, and returned everything to stock. Still mushy, but I'm getting used to it.

    I had to learn that trigger control and a more revolver like trigger pull
    made a huge difference with the Glock. Smooth and steady, never stopping. Keep it moving through the mush, til break.
    With 1911 and other nice crisp break triggers, slow and steady seem to work, because you really don't feel any movement before the break.

    I think for most, it just takes a lot of trigger time.
    Dry firing and live firing. THe more the better.

    I thought I had good trigger control, before shooting striker fired pistols.

    After about 1000 rounds of just shooting Glocks, you won't notice the trigger anymore. if you keep changing guns, you will constantly be wondering (and wandering).

    Stop finger obsessing and shoot it until your good at it. In post-shooting debriefs, no one ever remembers how the the trigger feels.
