    I just went ahead with the "Trigger Safety Mod'" by "shaving down the trigger safety. MANY much mucho better! I was more than careful to leave the "pivot point" where the upper part of the safety meets the middle of the trigger-face untouched. I was going to include pics but the damn camera battery is dead (recharging as I type this). I employed the "scraping method" first, the employed fine 3M sandpaper. I think I might appreciate anyone who disagrees with performing this mod' (The Purists who think anything not completely stock-especially Glocks-is some kind of tragedy), just simply not post any replies. Thanks.

    It's better because by having to be flush with the trigger before the gun will fire, it leaves no room for error and it is possible the gun won't fire when you pull the trigger.

    I'm not familiar with this mod. Did you deactivate the trigger safety or just shave it down so it's harder to activate?

    If it's the latter, I don't really understand why that matters.

    If it's the former I think it's unsafe.

    I'm a guy who mods a LOT of external things on my Glocks, but I fail to see a need for this and hope you're not using that Glock for SD or CCW. Removing a safety feature on a firearm will be the #1 focus of an attorney if you ever have to use it on someone. Making a weapon more dangerous looks "MANY mucho much bad" to a jury. If its discovered in a civil trial you're just done. Hand over your paychecks for the rest of your life. Trust me on this one. Ronin .45, your signature line is applicable here.

    To those not familiar with this mod, I have done this to my three carry Glocks (several years ago) and it is a worthwhile alteration. It is more obvious in harder recoiling pistols because when the safety is flush with the trigger face, there is significantly less chance of getting trigger bite from the safety. I start off with a very sharp knife and develop a contour on the safety, then go to emory cloth to smooth it up and finish the job. Just be careful not to remove too much material when doing this.

    Also, for the compact and subcompacts, I install the full size smooth faced triggers in place of the serrated faced "target" triggers. These mods give a much better trigger feel and eliminate the chance of blood blisters on the compact and subcompact .40S&W guns.

    I don't see how this works, if you shave the trigger safe down, then how does it get depressed to allow the pistol to fire? I guess the pictures would help ....

    I put the smooth trigger in my Glocks, I got trigger bite 1 time from my 27, but that was me not holding the pistol right. I shoot the pistol every week, went through a 800 round course with it and never suffered from blood blisters, sore fingers or bite???

    If you like it, cool. I wouldn't go that far with my Glocks.

    Instead of focusing on how your finger feels, shift the focus to your front sight post. I've seen this mod before and can't for the life of me figure out how one can be bothered by it, let alone feel it. That goes for serrated vs. smooth triggers as well....absolutely inconsequential to me. I don't feel a lick of difference.
