Has anyone done one of the .25 cent trigger jobs you see all over you tube. If so, just wondering if it made a difference.

You definitely want the 2lb connector from glockworx. I've had 3.5 lb ones too and they're still really stiff. When measured a lot of them are only reduced to 4-4.5 lbs also. Also a stiffer trigger spring with a reduced tension striker safety spring will make the trigger break a lot cleaner. I wouldn't conceal with that light of a pull but it's best for everything else. Would also recommend sand paper grips. Those really make the grip feel so good it improved trigger pull consistency for me.

Send your frame to me and I'll give you one sweet trigger pull. I can get you down to a smooth, crisp, 3 lbs+/- or 3.5 lbs (your choice) with no slack and short reset. Very similar feel to a custom 1911 trigger.

I have actually been thinking of sending you my 19 for this

What do you charge?

Would be very interesting to put a trigger pull gauge on it and photograph the before and after trigger job pull wieghts to compare a $0.25 trigger job versus an actual component replacement trigger job. The pictures won't lie.

Unfortunately, what the pictures won't say is the smoothness of the resulting trigger feel, nor the presence/absence of any sloppiness or slack in the trigger.

Would be nice to document one, though!

If someone wants to send me a gauge I would gladly give it my best polishing effort and see what happens.

I can tell you right now that it will *feel* a little smoother and it will pull a little lighter if measured. The risk you run is over polishing the parts which can cause a failure. The question you should be asking yourself is "does this modification really make me a better shooter" and is the perceived payoff worth the risk on a carry weapon. If your drilling holes with an unmodified trigger group, I'd say you're wasting your time just to have something *feel* a little smoother. If your not drilling holes with an unmodified trigger group, I'd say practice more....and you will be a better defensive shooter for it.

This I've got to see. I'll be staying tuned for results cuz I did the trigger job the first week I had my 26 and I didn't notice a difference in pull difference but I did notice the pull was smoother and less "gritty" compared to the way it came from the mfgr. Unfortunatly, unless the pull scale is digital, I highly doubt there will be a registerable difference. (Is that a word? :)
*measurable*

Yep...and what do some people do when they encounter what you observed? They polish more......hence my warning above and perceived benefit vs. risk.

And thats why I only polished the parts with Mothers and Qtips till it was shiny.
Shiny parts makes Rross happy :D

If you do it on a brand new gun you can feel the difference, your basically acelerating the normal wear. It wont' be lighter, just smoother.
