    You can spend a LOT of money to get a trigger with some of the takeup removed. The danger is that it can disable the trigger safety, IIRC.

    Have you tried a Gen4 with no backstrap? The "length" should be shorter on them.

    Other than that, you may have to use a different gun.

    Unless the trigger safety is modified.

    Maybe you should answer his question then and point him to the right place, instead of just responding to a small portion of my post.

    I did add a IIRC in there, meaning I wasn't 100% sure about my statement.

    OP: I have no experience with these, but this one discusses having shortened pre-travel:

    $250 though.

    Zev was the one I was going to post too, but if you don't want the Ultimate kit as Ron posted (comes with skeletonized striker) you can get just the trigger for $180

    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.

    Hi,
    Instead of getting a shorter trigger, head on over to Glockworx and look at their gunsmithing. You can have the frame cut in for $165 so that your finger will reach the trigger. It might be the perfect option for your situation. I just ran across this and thought I'd share it with you. Good luck. I know what it's like to not be able to properly reach a trigger. I have that problem with my Sig Sauer P226.

    Take a look at the Haley Skimmer or The Edge. I have both and they were a great investment.

    I have the haley skimmer in my G27. It shortens the trigger pull to about 1/4 inch without compromising the safeties. I did not think $160 was too much. All the metal parts are polished, the trigger is smooth not ribbed, and it comes with a polished safety plunger.:wavey:

    I think it would be the opposite I would have to be farther from the trigger to get what I'm looking for.my finger had surgery on the inside I cut the tendon on the inside so I can't make a fist w my trigger finger
