How does the trigger feel ?

On my Gen 4, the trigger feels different than my other Glocks. They have changed the trigger bars (so I was told by Glock today). Also the slide will not go back onto the frame if the firing pin is not in the forward position.

I changed out the trigger bar with a spare that I had on hand. Has a much smoother trigger pull now and the slide will go onto the frame regardless of the firing pin position.

I just got it literally a couple of hours ago. Haven't had time to shoot it or photograph it yet. I compared it to my Tactical XD-40 as soon as I got it home.

It's quite a bit lighter and slimmer, and a half inch shorter. I can carry it concealed IWB neoprene holster under a jacket, whereas I really can't do that with the XD. My Surefire T1 fits perfectly. Now I have three guns I can use that light on.

The grip texture is different than the original RTF grip, it's more comfortable.

I'll shoot it tomorrow most likely, then come back and post some more.

It feels good to me, pretty smooth with a crisp break, but then I haven't actually shot it yet.

Good pickup. I too noticed that the biggest thing I like about the gen4 is the new rtf. MUCH nicer than on the gen 3.

I shot it today. I like it. Very much. The trigger pull is a bit stouter than the XD, but it breaks nice and the gun functioned perfectly. I shot 60 rounds with out a hiccup, two different loads. Here's my 10 yard target.

I always say if it's a light trigger you want, go shoot a 1911.

I thought the trigger felt different when I checked one out at my dealer when they first came in. It felt stiffer than the Gen 3s he had.

It's supposed to be 5 & 1/2 lbs I think. It didn't really bother me. It just takes a little getting used to.

BC (over on another forum) recommends lubrication on the trigger to help break it in. How do I do that? Does it require any disassembly beyond the normal break down for cleaning?
