I sold my first Glock 8 years ago and went without for 6 years.
Finally saw the light of simplicity and reliability...

I now own 4 of them..

Maybe someday you will come to your senses.. Big Grin
And then again, maybe not... Frown


Thanks..

Why cannot I utter the word? The carry gun that dare not speak it's name? Hidden where no one can see, yet every eye casts a knowing glare upon my secret shame.

I'm ruined.

I have given in and got myself a brand new G19 Gen4.

What's this about a smooth trigger? Is that a little more comfortable than the stock ridged one?

I think the smooth face gives it a better feel than the serrated one but it's mainly just a personal preference. And it's a easy to swap it out yourself.

Yes, I replace all my grooved triggers with smooth triggers.
Then I sell the grooved ones on eBay... Big Grin

Lone Wolf Distributors sells them.

It is my understanding the only reason they send them over here with grooved triggers is to meet some BS government standards of importing firearms..


Thanks..

I doubt that because not all models come with grooved triggers...

Either way, you should collect them all!!

At one time ATF required certain items for import points.
A ridged (grooved/serrated) trigger is a "target trigger" in ATF terms.
The frames smaller than full size required points to get into the US.
Grooved triggers and adjustable sights gave them the points needed.

My Gen 2 G21 had a smooth trigger.
My Gen 2 G17 had a smooth trigger.
My Gen 2 and Gen 3 G19 had a grooved one, I replaced the both with a smooth G17 trigger.
My Gen 3 G30S had a grooved trigger, I replaced it with a smooth G21 trigger.
My G26 had a grooved trigger but I sold it a long time ago.

If you do a little research, you will find that I don't post bull shit.
So don't doubt what I say, or type, unless you have fact to back it up... Wink

What is the BATF points system and how does it affect Glocks?
Many of the Glock's parts and sometimes the whole gun are dictated or limited by the BATF's system of "import points".

To qualify for import a pistol must score 75 points based on the following system:

Characteristic Points
Length: for each 1/4" over 6" 1
Forged steel frame 15
Forged HTS alloy frame 20
Unloaded weight w/mag (per oz.) 1 .22 short and .25 auto 0 .22 LR and 7.65mm to .380 auto 3 9mm parabellum and over 10 Locked breech mechanism 5
Loaded chamber indicator 5
Grip safety 3
Magazine safety 5
Firing pin block or lock 10
External hammer 2
Double action 10
Drift adjustable target sight 5
Click adjustable target sight 10
Target grips 5
Target trigger 2

For example, here is how the G17 scores:
Length (7.28") 5
Weight (24.79oz) 25
Caliber (9mm) 10
Locked breech 5
Firing pin block 10
Double action 10
Target sight 10
Target grips 5
Total 80

Here is how the Glock 26 scores:
Length (6.29") 1
Weight (21.87oz) 22
Caliber (9mm) 10
Locked breech 5
Firing pin block 10
Double action 10
Target sight 10
Target grips 5
Target trigger 2
Total 75

Changes and features made to Glocks to comply with the BATF rules:
All models are imported with a cheap click-adjustable rear sight that is replaced at the factory with the stock sight
Target (grooved) trigger added to compacts & subcompacts
Target grips added to all models (required for the subcompacts)
Due to their caliber, .380 autos (G25 & G28) do not score enough points to be imported



How do you like me now... Confused Big Grin

No offense was intended!! If I was sure, I would have had so, I was just expressing my doubt. That said, I do appreciate the extra education. I did always wonder why only the little ones came with the ugly triggers. So, I'm sorry if that came off wrong and thanks for the info.

Now, I wonder what qualifies them as "target" grips.

I'm sure you misread. It's supposed to say that Glocks are the cure for all disease.

No worries, same here at work this MONTH!

Speaking of the world of Glocks, I'll be visiting your great state next week for the NRA annual meetings. I hope to enjoy some glock'n there.... and some Shiner.

Brother if the meetings were in Dallas, I'd meet you somewhere and drink some Shiner Bocks with you

We could even meet at the range and have you run some rounds thru the G30S.. Wink



Enjoy Houston, if possible... Big Grin


Thanks..

Picked up my Gen 4 G34 today. Fast and accurate double taps or 2+1's at 5-7 yards. Mag dumps at same distances yield all 18 shots on COM. Less important to me, respectable groups at 20 yards but I hate the stock sights so they'll be the only thing "upgraded" on the gun. I'm no fan of swapping parts in Glocks as I don't think it yields any real-world benefit aside from throwing away the crappy stock sights.

Already ordered an X300 Ultra and DG-11 pressure switch for the gun. It will be my nightstand gun.

I do want to pick up some Pearce +0 baseplates for my Glock 26. I think it'll be a bit faster and more controllable.

I had those on my G26, several years ago, and they made a world of difference...
