Glock is a name as renowned as the word ‘pistol’ itself. Of all the others, the most substantial perk of owning a Glock is the ability to customize it with aftermarket parts per your liking. The stock trigger, having a greater trigger pull weight, can be replaced with a lighter one. Or a custom trigger, better in other aspects, but having the same trigger pull weight can also be chosen if you prefer the stock pull weight.
The stock trigger is intentionally kept heavy per Glock’s safety system. The aftermarket triggers are also safe and have more use cases than the stock ones.
Why Do You Need a Custom Trigger?
As Glock pistols are made bearing in mind their usage by militaries and law enforcement agencies around the world, the stock Glock triggers have a pull of 5.39-lb to prevent accidental firearm discharge. This trigger pull could be excessive for an average shooter at the range. And very excessive for a competition shooter. Replacing the stock trigger with a custom aftermarket one will help you in many ways; some practical benefits are explained below.
Accurate and Manoeuvrable
A light trigger in your Glock instead of the stock one will provide you with a shorter and lighter trigger pull with a smooth rolling break. This will dramatically affect your accuracy and precision as it helps alleviate the breakpoint anticipation.
Due to the increased accuracy, these aftermarket triggers are a perfect match for you if you like competition shooting, and in these times have become a requirement too. Because if you don't upgrade your pistol, your opponent definitely will.
These aftermarket triggers will provide you with the optimum breaking angle, with some even offering a self-correcting, straight rearward press while maintaining the necessary safety features.
Predictability and Consistency
Predictability and consistency are the names of the game when it comes to self-defense or competitions. You want a pistol that produces consistent and predictable results when using it for home or self-defense in a crisis. The aftermarket trigger will feel more predictable and repeatable to you in terms of the uptake and reset.
Also, there are triggers like the Tyrant Designs I.T.T.S. Trigger, Overwatch Precision Tac Trigger, etc., that do not reduce the trigger pull weight if you are accustomed to the stock trigger pull and want a better, good textured, and sturdier trigger that has crisp feedback, reduced flex, and optimal breaking angle.
Durability with Style
These aftermarket triggers are manufactured using 7075 aluminum and have corrosion-resistant coatings, providing you the much-needed peace of mind regarding the longevity of your everyday carry pistol.
And lastly, style. These triggers come in multiple colors and finishings, adding functionality and aesthetics to your beloved Glock. Every gun enthusiast tries to distinguish their weapon from the rest, and these aftermarket triggers and parts will do just that for you.
So, what are you waiting for? Jump the gun and buy a trigger that suits your style and functional requirements!
