"accidentally" hahaha...is that what they call it. Loljimmyalbrecht said:It just adds a higher weight to the trigger pull. It is called a NY trigger spring because some cops in NY couldn't keep their finger off the trigger and kept accidentally shooting people so they made it harder to pull the trigger.
Yeah haha, I think it was an excuse in an attempt to get out of trouble. That's why I can't be a cop. All of my reports at some point would include the phrase "so that's when I shot him". He bowed up at me, so that's when I shot him. He turned and ran, so that's when I shot him lol."accidentally" hahaha...is that what they call it. Lol
Oh yes it did. The NYPD were red stripping themselves at an alarming rate as they transitioned out of revolvers into the Glocks.The real reason for the design is because NY cops were transitioning from revolvers, which have a heavier and constant pull and the new trigger made it an easy transition after years of training and experience with the revolvers. It had nothing to do with inadvertently shooting people.
This makes it sound like the same cops were constantly shooting people, in multiple different occasions.jimmyalbrecht said:It is called a NY trigger spring because some cops in NY couldn't keep their finger off the trigger and kept accidentally shooting people
Forgive me for not wording my statement to your specifications. Everyone else seemed to get the gist of it. There were some accidental discharges, and this is why the NY tirgger spring was introduced.This makes it sound like the same cops were constantly shooting people, in multiple different occasions.
If it happened only twice, it's not statistically significant to say that was 'the' reason.
That being said, my statement is true to fact, it wasn't about lots of people getting shot.
Certainly someone who's less interested in making a trigger as light as possible and more interested in feel.The NY trigger was NYPD's answer to lack of training resulting in accidental discharges. The trigger is horrible in my opinion...why anyone would ever put this into there Glock as a civilian is beyond me.
