Hello. So im new to building glocks. Im building my first one and cant get the trigger installed properly. I can put it in but the trigger wont move. Anyone know what im doing wrong?
All the interior parts are 100% Glock or after market Glock parts. The only thing not a Glock is the frame.... that is for me better than a Glock. The grip angle, the cuts in the frame and trigger guard...all far better than my G19.You mean besides it's not a Glock??
No disrespect Supermod.
Not to mention you’re an engineer as well. A great long time source here on the GF.Thank you Beach. I only compete and easily forget how many other gun owners there are out there. 2020 US estimates are 393 million, and yet the 2 largest action pistol (semi auto) venues combined, USPSA (US only) and IDPA (including the rest of the world), only have about 61,000 members.... SO, that is a meager .0002% of the US total! A fractional fraction. I suspect even if you lumped all the shooting disciplines together, Bullseye, PPC, hunter silhouette, GSSF, Steel Challenge, 3gun and USPSA Multi Gun, F class rifle, trap, skeet, sporting clays, cowboy action, black powder games, local action and steel matches, it would still be far less that .0005%
But because competitors tend to shoot 4-8 matches a month, averaging 200 rounds per match, we see what is the most reliable of all the guns available. And what works at a static indoor range, doesn't always work so well under stress of shooting a match. Even high quality guns, for example, the H&K, is a very poor choice for competition compared to the other choices out there.
"393 million, this amounts to "120.5 firearms for every 100 residents." But I don't own any 1/2 guns......
Ummm…kinda true. I’m a member of 4 different gun clubs in CT, OH, KY, and VT. Know plenty of competitors. The only gun that exists is the brand they are using…and are quite loud about it. That said, I don’t know SixGs and am sure he’s really on the up and up as he replied quite helpfully to my first post here.
I’m doing the same thing and ran into the same problem. No trigger action to speak of. I have a very minor click, and the cruciform does not fall completely down into the recess. Also using a Pyramid trigger and double diamond connector. I’ve found that the trigger is hitting the drop in rail in the back of the P-80 frame just a smidge. I have NOT adjusted anything yet, still looking it over. Glockstore advised me when I ordered the trigger, I may have to bend or file the firing pin part of the cruciform and if I did, IF I DID, it wipes the warranty. Not really concerned about that. I have a machine shop and I’m not afraid to use it. I’ll let you know what I find out. That’s kind of my main reason for being here.
I fail to see disrespect....maybe a little snark. Why point out it's not a Glock? That's obvious and the OP is looking for help from all of the knowledgeable people here. I've yet to someone fail to get some good help or suggestions here with P80 builds, but there is always 1 or 2 that have to disparage the P80 within the first few posts.
The best trigger I've found is the Wilson Combat trigger.OK, I’ve now gotten the P-80 trigger assembly to work whereas the Pyramid trigger still fails to drop completely down and clear the firing pin. I took a burr off the rail bend and very slightly rounded the front right edge of the back slide rail insert. Perhaps a further trimming might permit the Pyramid trigger to function, however I’m stopping here at this point to get the P-80 functional. I’ll most likely do something with the Glockstore trigger after I’m satisfied the P-80 is reliable.
