Glock 42 trigger


I just bought my first Glock, a 42. All I can say is what is up with that trigger? Stiff, yet squishy. How can a gun this small have that much travel before the break and why is it as gritty as dragging a brick across some blacktop?
My G21 SF had a pretty awful trigger before I polished it up and put in a 3.5 pound disconnector.

Don't do anything you are not comfortable doing and go slowly. If you're not accustomed to tuning up guns it'd be worthwhile (i.e., safer) to take it to a local smith and have them smooth it out.
