    If its a carry gun, leave it alone and learn to shoot the standard 4 pound trigger and reset. If it's a range toy, I would recommend sending it to a pro, but if you are bound and determined to work on it yourself, I would recommend going slow and having a few extra parts in case you take too much metal off in the polishing. Good luck!

    Shoot more till it smooth out itself. ;) I actually think stock glock triggers are is pretty decent from the factory.

    I use my sig for CC but I would on rare times carry it. Mostly its just a range gun. I have always wanted to play around with doing alittle of this myself. I have herd that glocks would be a good gun to learn with because of so many parts you can get and ease of taking the gun apart. I want to take the dive in. For the most part though I only see people installing the 3.5 and a polish. Im guessing I should just start here for now

    Netcarrier thank you for the offer. If its ok, if I run into trouble Ill send ya a pm with my questions.
    Thanks

    I repeat, if you are going to carry it EVER, do not mess with the trigger. It's cool if you want to do it, power to you, but the gun should stay strictly as a range gun once you've done work to the trigger.

    I've been trained as and worked as a gunsmith. I have been a factory certified armorer for Glock, Beretta, Colt, and Mossberg. I have lots of guns that I have done trigger jobs to. That being said, all the guns I carry are bone stock. I do not want to have to field the question if I'm ever involved in a shooting as to why I lightened the trigger? Do you know more than the engineers who designed the gun? Are you trying to be a cowboy? Did you really mean to shoot the individual, or did you accidentally pull the trigger as it was too light? This may sound overly cautious, but better to be safe than sorry. Just a professionals opinion. Take it for what its worth...

    My dad and I have had several Glock triggers worked on by Angie Butrick, "The Sightman". He's got a knack for smoothing them out without really making them lighter. I agree with MountainBear that lightening a trigger isn't the best idea for a carry gun.

    I did the 25 cent polish job with flitz, lubed the appropriate area images-1_zpsc5986341.jpg and after several hundred rounds it will indeed smooth itself out pretty nice.

    I too wouldn't lighten the trigger up by installing parts or sending it in, if it's your self defense pistol.
