    Please bear with this Glock newbie. I'm sure this has been posted a million times, but I can't get anything to come up. I'm sure it's me.

    I have a used, G19/Gen 3 arriving next Thursday as a CC companion to my brand new G35/Gen 4. So far I like the trigger on the G35 (4.5 lbs IIRC).

    What are considered safe methods/parts swaps to get a 4.5-ish carry trigger with a short reset on a G19/Gen 3?

    Thanks in advance.

    How do you know the G35/gen4 is 4.5#?

    Try out the G19 first. If its used, it may be smoother than yours.

    Do a little bit more thread trolling in the general glocking forum, then come back if you really can't find the answers..

    I can't be positive, but that's what Glock says it is out of the box, and it feels like 4.5# to 5.5# to me.

    Will do, thanks.

    Just a suggestion, but few if any shooters have fingers sensitive and experienced enough to be able to feel the difference in weight between different types of triggers. To determine the actual weight of the trigger pull, weigh it with a proper trigger pull scale. A gunsmith would almost certainly have one of these instruments. You can drive yourself up the wall trying to pull different triggers and determine if they are the same, similar or heavier or lighter or whatever. JMHO. Sincerely. bruce.

    Thanks. I have several carry guns that all break at 4.5#. I have long ago made my peace with liability issues pertaining to trigger pull. I am more concerned about 1. The ability to place shots accurately, than 2. What happens in court afterward.

    If, God forbid I have to shoot defensively, and I can accomplish "1", then I will be able to defend "2" in court.
