Trigger : Trouble-Shooting, Tips & Tricks and FAQs

  • My trigger wont reset in my aftermarket frame.

    • There is a large variance in dimensions when a P80 frame is completed, both in part due varying completion kits used by several manufacturers as well as the drilling of the frame itself by the end user. We have identified an issue in the manufacturing process of the rear rails on P80 frames that has been a concern for most aftermarket triggers. ​

    • There is a small protrusion on the right (connector side) of the rear P80 rail, this needs to be removed. Please click the PDF below for a detailed description of the process and How-To instructions.

  • My trigger is still slow to reset or my slide wont go into battery when I hold the trigger down, only when I let go of the trigger does it move forward.

    • Again this is a byproduct of varying tolerances with the P80 frame and its rail system. Usually we find that not only are the rear rails a bit too high, but the front rails are a bit too low as well. This will vary depending on the frame batch you purchased as well as your drilling process.

    • Due to the above mentioned issue, the gooseneck or firing pin safety contact point on your trigger bar may be making very light contact on inside of your slide. This is a very easy fix... We recommend a light sanding or removal of material, while following the contour of the contact point, in .005" increments.

    • A great product to do this with are the foam board nail files, they come in a variety of grits. We recommend the use of 240 then moving to 400 to smooth out the finish after you have resolved the issue.

  • My trigger is resting against my frame.

    • Make sure that you have a complete upper (OEM or aftermarket slide) installed on your frame. The trigger in a Glock is forced to reset and move forward by the interaction of the firing pin or striker assembly. If you don not have a slide installed the trigger will naturally be pulled to the rear by the trigger return spring in the trigger housing assembly.​
