I have a G22 Gen4 that I use as a duty weapon. I have other glocks, all gen3 models, and the trigger on the G22 is noticeably more stiff than any of my other glocks. I would like to change the trigger or at least alter it in order to make it better. Any suggestions on what some options are that would still keep it legal as a LEO gun? And has anybody else noticed that their gen4 glocks have slightly stiffer triggers?

I checked, it isn't against policy. We purchase our own duty weapons, so the gun is mine. The department just gives us guidelines to go buy when purchasing our duty weapon.

The gen4 trigger bars have the new "bump" on them. You can install a gen3 trigger bar and lose 1lb right out if the gate. I did this with my first gen4 19. I installed a trigger bar from my gen3 27 as a test after seeing a vid and loved it. Some simply file it down but I opted to buy gen3 bars incase i need warranty work.

I think this post is your best option. Another thing you can do is switch the trigger connector to one with a lighter pull if your department allows it.

Our department will allow stuff like that. The only thing we can't do is switch out the factory trigger for a competition trigger. That is kind of unclear, I know, but that is all the commonwealth attorney could tell me. If I can get the trigger down to about 4.5lbs then I'll be golden.

The Gen3 trigger bar took my Gen4 from a measured 5.5 new to 4.5 with no further mods. Later of course I did polish some things, installed a 3.5 connector and a 6# spring and that got it down to a measured 3.8-4# pull. Even later I removed the 3.5 connector and 6# spring for two reasons.....1-the trigger break felt a little squishy and 2- the positive feel{click} of the trigger reset was almost non-exhistant to the point it felt like something was broken. One thing I have not tried is using the 6# spring w/o the connector.

From the sounds of your last post both the 3.5 connector and 6# spring could be construed as a "competition" trigger. Not worth the possible legal ramifications IMO.

You need the new DOT connector which was designed for the Gen 4 guns per request of the ATF when they upgraded to gen4's. My new G27 came with it and I put one on my Gen 4 g23 which came with the 5.5 lb connector. It is between the standard 5.5 and the 3.5 or minus- competition connector which is standard on the G34/35.

The trigger as it is now is not pulling 5.5lbs. I checked it today and it is pulling close to 6.5lbs. I would be ok starting with a standard 5.5lb trigger and maybe going from there. I am so used to other Glock triggers that this one just feels bad. And it's not smoothing out over time like I thought it would. I've got between 1500-2000 rounds through it right now and it's not improving.

That sounds like a more reasonable place to start, I agree. I checked glockstore.com, they seem to have pretty good prices. Any other places I should check on for buying a gen3 trigger bar?
