    Might be gunk and powder buildup in the firing pin channel.

    If not that, maybe a connector issue or a firing pin safety issue.




    ...or ammo. lol

    Does the trigger pull get really heavy and gritty feeling?

    1. Dirty firing pin channel
    2. Incorrectly re-installed spring cups
    3, Damaged firing pin
    4. Firing pin safety spring installed sideways
    6. Incorrect trigger spring/connector combination
    7. Bent or incorrect trigger w/trigger bar

    Have a certified Glock Armorer examine your pistol.

    Put a drop of oil on the spot where the connector interfaces with the rear of the trigger bar. That's just a temporary fix though, you'll want to get a new connector.
