    Anyone using this? If so, what kind of results ar you or did you get with it. Thinking about it for IDPA in my G34. Or can you guys maybe recommend another type of overtravel stop?

    Thanks

    Generally, shooting is fast/close enough in IDPa that worrying about normal levels of overtravel in a Glock trigger is such that if you are shooting slowly enough to notice the benefits...you lose... :)

    I agree with you. I have never really noticed to much overtravel in the stock trigger as it is. I wasn't just going to buy it. The 2 reviews on Midway are not the best to go by any way. I am just going to leave it as is. I wasn't having any issue with the trigger. This is what happens when I over hear guys talking during my local match, I start to think. I won ESP division this past Saturday...I think I'll stick to what I am doing. Thanks for the input.

    If you have done the 25 cent trigger job you have done all the improvement you need. Well maybe the 6# trigger spring to improve reset.

    ive done the 25 cent polish job and the 6lb trigger spring.
    im also considering the lighweight striker and spring and ditching the trigger spring.
    i ran the light striker spring before with a stock striker and i got 1 light strike and took it out. i use CCI primers.

    so, for $65 or so, i can get the lightning strike lightweight steel striker. it should allow me to use my 4lb wolf spring and lighten my trigger without turning it to mush.
    i just wish i could try one out before dropping the cash for one.

    I've done the .25 cent trigger job. Where would I pick up a #6 spring. That one has me curious.

    Thanks

    It's IDPA. Y'all are putting WAY too much thought and effort into it. Go stock and quit trying to game it.

    Now, USPSA? Hell yes, I run a 2 pound trigger and a short reset. I tried the LW and didn't like it. Went with the Ghost Rocket and it's been bullet proof so far.

    IDPA is a game also...so why not take advantage of things to help you win?

    <chuckles> Well, JHayes, I just gave ya the recipe. If you do the lightened striker and striker spring, a lighter drop safety spring, and a heavier trigger spring, it'll be 2 and change.

    The Ghost Rocket connector has an overtravel stop built on and it requires filing (get the armorer's half back plate if you order it).

    I've since gone back to just the connector, all other parts are factory inside the gun. I'm still winning. I think soft triggers are over rated, and the short reset only really helps on a Bill Drill.

    My IDPA gun is a bone stock G17. I shot the classifier in SSP in 78.35 seconds last time. You don't need a stinkin' trigger job to win, dude. <g>

    this is what im finding out. im a modder with cars, so it translates over to guns.
    i think i just need to concentrate on my shooting more and save the gun mod money for more reloading components.
    although a nice light striker does appeal to me.
    i shoot steel challenge and USPSA production, totally opposite games and i do worse with my NEW 17 than i did with my gen 2 19. i think its because the new 17 is very stiff still. i polished it up, but it didnt seem to change anything really. (used a dremel and everything too).
    oh well. i will just keep shooting.:supergrin:

    The only trigger mods I had in my 34 were a LWD connector, and a LWD trigger stop.

    The trigger stop is great because you can get the reset as short as possible. Easier to shoot fast w/o trigger freeze.

    I hate trigger freeze.



    Red Locktite the screw when setting it up. Otherwise it will slowly back off and you won't notice it.

    Trying to catch the reset is the surest way to get trigger freeze. Do everything the same everytime and since there is take up in the first shot make every shot the first shot.

    If you're going to tell me to fully release the trigger for each shot, I'm going to go ahead and ignore that advice.

    :)

    with a stockish trigger, you can easily feel the trigger reset.
    mine actually clicks loud enough that i can hear it.

    although i do know people that fully release their trigger each shot and they are national level shooters that compete with me locally too.

    so, to each their own i guess.

    I tried it in two different guns (IDPA SSP 34 and USPSA Limited 24) and found it to be pretty useless in both.

    Now the only trigger job I do to a Glock is a LWD connector, heavier trigger spring, and lots of lead downrange.

    I'm not trying to tell you anything and you are free to ignore everything. Besides what I might say could get me kicked off the forum.
