This could be a really cool thing, or a scary thing.

Timney has eliminated the double action part of the a Glock trigger pull. With this trigger, it will act like other striker fired guns where the striker is fully cocked and pulling the trigger does not finish cocking the striker and release it.

That is one of the safeties of the Glock.

It appears the striker plunger safety is still present, otherwise this trigger might make the gun pretty unsafe drop wise.

They claim a 3 pound pull.

Might be a pretty damn good replacement trigger over other options.

I'm inclined to believe it's an ok product since it says "timney." Might be real weird to shoot a glock with this as we're all so used to how glock triggers feel like glock triggers

Johnnyglocks.com made one of these by putting the crucible edge very close to the drop off on the trigger housing IMO w/o a manual safety, that is not a good idea. I want all four parts of the "Safe Action" trigger if I am really expecting a Glock to be safe. But I'd love the feel of a single action trigger on a Glock.... put a manual safety on it like my Ruger SR9c (which has a Glock-licensed trigger) and I'd go for it.

Not a huge difference from the Glock partially pre-cocked design. I've seen various figures thrown out over the years that the Glock is anywhere from 80-95% pre-cocked, and there's very little cocking that the "safe action" trigger does when pulled.

Springfield XD's were billed as single action, until they realized that police agencies were scared off by the term "single action"

It has the trigger shoe safety and the firing pin block so its unlikely to fire if dropped, and the center dongus in the trigger shoe *should* prevent rearward travel by inertia. A 3.5lb trigger is light for my tastes on a defensive gun - 4.5lb is where I feel comfortable on the lighter end, even with a 1911.

This is still probably more drop safe than a P320 trigger :s0108:

Its a neat piece of engineering.

The new Alpha Competition Series of triggers is Timney’s latest overnight success – 75 years in the making.

First in the Alpha Series line-up is a replacement trigger for the Glock Generation 3 and 4 pistols.


How is it "75 years in the making" if Glock has only been around for 38 years? :s0092:

I don't see anything on the product page that talks about how it's like a traditional single action. Someone give me a link or place to look.
