    I have a question that may be a bit unusual. What is the most reliable trigger job for a carry gun? By reliable I mean the following:

    High chance of sucess
    Won't compromise the gun's reliability
    Hard to screw up.

    If it is a part exchange I am interested in knowing who makes the best parts. The gun in question is a Glock 22 Gen 4 that I would like to get the pull down some but still be a good carry/SD weight (so no 1-lb triggers).

    Thanks in advance.

    Stock is the most reliable trigger job for a carry gun!!
    But none of mine are stock I add a GHOST TACTICAL Ghost Tactical connector and do a .25 trigger job on mine and they feel real nice and are very reliable if done right..

    IMHO - The most reliable trigger on a carry gun is the one you won't ever have to explain to a jury, that is, 100% as it came from the factory.

    Let the ammo down the pipe do all of your polishing.

    On my Gen 4 I have a LWD connector & 6 # trigger spring.

    I dont live in tactical lala land so I dont worry about what my imaginary jury would think of my imaginary shooting.

    glocks as they come are completely manageable- no need for fixin,just practice. I made master in gssf last year with a totaly stock glock 19. Also most of the local shoots I enter I either win or am in the top 3 finishers with my stock glock. Practice and getting used to the gun as is will get you farther than tinkering with it.

    +1. A .25 cent trigger job keeps it stock yet it smooths it out pretty nice. I did it to my Glock and it makes an obvious difference.

    My Gen. 4 22 has the best striker fired trigger pull I have ever felt in any striker fired handgun---very smooth---no mush and a crisp break with an audible reset.

    stock

    just put some ammo through it until it smooths out naturally from cycling while you increase your familiarity with it & accuracy

    Does your glock 22 have the dot connector or the standard 5.5 connector?

    Dot is on the right, standard (5.5) center, minus (3.5/4.5) left

    Lots of rounds downrange and some TW-25 grease on the connector work for me

    I would recommend the Factory Glock "-" connector.

    It's a drop in replacement for your current connector.
    And alone will lower the trigger pull from ~6 lbs to ~5 lbs.

    I used to have a gen4 g22. I did a polish job on not just the trigger parts but all metal surfaces. The action was super smooth and the trigger was very "sig" like...

    Recently, all of my Glocks are back to their original factory configuration. The infamous $0.25 trigger job is as far as I will venture.

    I would leave it stock. Theres a very good article on this subject by Mas Ayoob in the current issue of Combat Handguns.

    +1 on Stock (OEM) parts and $.25 trigger job. Didn't really notice a great difference after polishing the trigger parts but I just can't see where polishing and smoothing all metal-to-metal component interfaces could be bad. Unless you polish too much and remove metal, it's pretty tough to mess it up.

    Stock. Just think about how good a shot you will be when you spend some time learning how to pull the stock trigger properly. You don't even need to blow through a bunch of live ammo, dry fire is fine.
