    How do you install a set screw for my G17's trigger?

    If you have a drill press, you can drill and tap through one side of the plastic trigger for a small set-screw. Triggers like this can be purchased from Glockmeister. I bought one, it works very well.

    so i guess a piece of plastic and some crazy glue wouldn't work so well, eh? :)

    It works but it'll wear and you lose your adjustment.

    I would reccomend not trying this at home. Setting up an overtravel stop is rather tricky and if done wrong lead to a non functioning gun or a full auto out of control pistol.

    Matt, can you post a few details on the "full auto" part? :) I'll take responsibility for the "control" issue.

    Easy. A stone and an enthusiastic session with a 3.5 connector should do the trick. Ask me how I know. ;f ;f ;f

    Front upper right of the trigger housing; under the ejector--drill a small through hole and run a small screw through so you stop the screw on the bent portion of the trigger bar. Adjust for best "return". Ghost Rocket connector does the same thing for considerably more money.

    Both methods reduce the trigger return travel.

    There was a quite detailed method with pics in a 2003 issue of a USPSA magazine. I have given my copy to a fellow shooter. Sorry. Maybe somebody else can help.
