    Hi,

    I've got a glock 26, 19, 34 and I was checking to see if swapping those will be okay for function?

    I swapped the 34's assembly into the 19 and everything dry fires okay, but I haven't actually fired the gun with the assemblies swapped.

    I wanted to check before going out and firing it.

    Thanks in advance :)

    The swaps should function fine, but engagement should always be checked with an orange inspection cover.

    They're all 3-pin Gen3 9mm's, so yes you should be able to swap trigger assemblies between the three of them.

    Yes, your fine. I'm assuming you just wanted the smooth trigger pad for your g 19 right? The only thing you might check is the firing pin lug engagement. You want at least 2/3

    I did swap the assemblies for the smooth trigger, seemed easy enough since I had them out for the .25 cent trigger job on all of them.

    What do you mean by "You want at least 2/3"? And also, what does an orange inspection cover do?

    Edit: I read up on the inspection cover, seems like a good idea but I don't have one currently.

    The orange inspection cover lets you see in the back of the slide. 2/3 of the firing pin lug should be riding on the sear portion of the trigger bar.

    Thanks, that made it clear. I'll double check it this evening, but I'm fairly certain nothing changed with swapping the setups.

    Here's a post by CitizenOfDreams with an excerpt from one of the Glock Armorer's Manuals explaining the firing pin lug and trigger bar tab engagement. With the slide forward and the trigger forward, at least 2/3 of the trigger bar tab surface should be covered by the firing pin lug:

    If the contact is < 2/3s what is the remedy? bending the trigger bar or replacing it?
    Thanks

    Replacing the trigger bar and/or firing pin until that engagement is achieved. I wouldn't bother replacing the firing pin, the trigger bars have more variability in their specs and they're cheaper.

    I dislike the serrated the triggers too on my compacts and subcompacts. Switched them out and they're good to go!

    how common is impropper trigger bar engagement?
    is it encountered very often, or very rare?

    Not very often with OEM Glock parts.
