My G48 doesn’t.
That isn’t good. I bought my first gen5, a g45. Trigger was awful. Shot cleaned repeat for 1k. Took a chance and traded it for a gen5 g17 mos. trigger is awesome. Only 500 thru it but it seems to be doing just fine. I guess it’s hit or miss on a good trigger?
The Glock 48 hasn't been out long enough to have gotten better, unless you shoot about a thousand rounds a week. The stuff about getting better isn't for you pulling the trigger a few hundred times.
Well, wine turns into vinegar. Eventually.
48, 450rds, enjoying it; better than the 42 and 43
Just buy a new trigger bar assembly. That’s what I did with my 43x. The trigger was gritty at first. Put a new one in, much better.
I make my Glock triggers better before firing.
I had a Gen5 G19 that sucked. It felt like a gritty XDS trigger. I polished it and got about 1200 rounds downrange. It still sucked. My 48 however felt great right out of the box.
My experience so far with Gen 5's is that they are really good out of the box, but get less so with use. All mine have gotten stagey. I had a Gen 4 19 that got horrible after 6000 rounds.
This is what you get for falling for all the hype.
I hope it works out for you.
My G23c Gen 4 got really bad and gritty after about 3000 rounds. Put a new trigger bar and connector in and now it’s good to go. The older Glocks seem to get better with use.
Ah, we're in General Glocking - that explains why people trade off their gun or buy new parts because the trigger is a little gritty, rather than spend 5 minutes and no money to fix it.
Would it be possible for you to explain this 5 min procedure?
FWIW I realized that my FP lug was dragging significantly against the slide. I hit it very briefly with a 1200 grit stone and flitz’ed it to smooth out the rough spot. The wear feels to have actually gone below the cheesy coating. For now the trigger is significantly better.
The reset still feels like my late grandma’s creaky knees.. crunching and grinding as the trigger spring slides over the little plastic dingus. But I can live with that.
I may end up doing a polish job on my G48, but when I've done the $.25 trigger job in the past, the most noticeable improvement was in the reset, which, no joke, ended up like butta.
Get a Wheaton Arms trigger and Ghost 3 lb. connector. Amazing setup...
Mine was worse on the second range trip, but has improved since then. It seems on par with my other Glocks.
Polish the parts that touch, don't screw up the sear face where the trigger bar contacts the striker and don't listen to anybody who calls it a "$.25 trigger job."
No One makes a 3# connector for a Glock.
