What Are The Good Triggers For Your Glock?
One of the biggest appeals of Glocks is that they are easily customizable. There are very few internal components, and the ones that are there are very easy to understand and upgrade. The aftermarket parts market can get a little overwhelming due to the number of products available, but if you’re interested in some of our favorite Glock triggers, please continue reading.
Our favorite triggers will be reviewed in terms of pros and cons, and we will make some basic buying recommendations for you afterwards. This article is aimed to be a starting point, but should hopefully guide you in the right direction and clear up some confusion. Please note that these products are presented in no particular order.
Perhaps you’re not looking to necessarily upgrade your trigger. Maybe the one that you’ve got simply broke, and you just want another simple replacement. Have no fear, this is still an easy process.
These triggers are the same as the standard Glock trigger, which is decent. However, they are extremely easy to replace, and are available at an extremely affordable price. For only a couple bucks, you can completely replace the trigger with a whole new one, and your weapon will be working like new again.
However, if you’re looking for a new trigger, I would recommend going ahead and upgrading the whole thing. It will likely vastly improve your shooting.
1.ZEV TECHNOLOGIES - FULCRUM DROP-IN TRIGGER KITS FOR GLOCK®
This aftermarket trigger is one of the highest quality units out there. It’s a full drop-in replacement, and if you get the full kit, it comes with new springs, a new ejector, and a new firing pin safety plunger. While it is slightly more expensive, the complete kit is definitely worth it, and the shooting will be night and day different.
The biggest pros of this trigger are the smoothness, break, and adjustability. The trigger pull you will experience here is unmatched, and the reset is extremely fast. It’s also completely adjustable for pre-travel and overtravel, which allows you to easily fine tune the trigger to your own shooting needs.
The cons are that it is expensive, and it’s a little more difficult to install than some of the others. While the trigger is very easy to adjust, it is slightly more difficult to install than the manufacturer might let on. Don’t be shocked if you need a gunsmith to help you.
2. CMC - DROP-IN TRIGGER KIT FOR GLOCK
Up next, we’ve got another drop-in unit, this one from CMC Triggers. This one is slightly easier to install than the previous, and is a tiny bit less expensive. Right off the bat, this trigger is extremely smooth. While we preferred the Fulcrum from Zev, it was extremely close.
The pros of this unit are that it significantly improves the trigger pull, is extremely aesthetically pleasing, and is much easier to install. The trigger does smoothen out the trigger pull, while also decreasing the pull weight by a couple of pounds. This unit has a flat face trigger, which gives the weapon a little bit more unique look. One final pro is that this one is made of higher quality materials than the previous.
The cons of this trigger are that it is still expensive. While the price is still high, the trigger doesn’t come with new springs or any of the other parts that we mentioned with the Zev.
3. Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Trigger
Next up, we’ve got this drop-in trigger and trigger bar from Apex. This is by far the least expensive upgrade on our list, but it is pretty decent quality. The trigger reduces the pull weight and travel from the standard trigger, and has an excellent reset.
The pros of this trigger are the price and the improvements as compared to the standard Glock trigger. It really will significantly improve your shooting for a pretty low price. It’s also purple in color, which will give some flair to your weapon.
However, there are a couple cons. This unit is only the trigger and trigger bar, so you may look to replace the springs separately. Additonally, it’s not the smoothest trigger on the list. Again though, it’s a significant improvement over the standard trigger.
For the average shooter, the trigger from Apex would be a great addition for not much money. It will improve your shooting, and will be enjoyable to shoot with overall.
However, if you’re a competitive shooter, we would recommend the CMC trigger. It’s just a start, but it’s an extremely high quality trigger. It’s very smooth and has a great pull. From the triggers on our list, this was out favorite one.
And I think you have best handgun safe for keep you glock safe.
Improving your trigger will improve your accuracy and be much more enjoyable to shoot. For most weapons, improving the trigger is one of the first upgrades we would recommend doing. For Glocks, this is extremely easy.
As you can see, there are quite a few different options out there for aftermarket Glock triggers. Keep in mind that this list was just a beginning, and there are still dozens of other options. Hopefully, this list has pointed out a few triggers to keep on your watch list.
