So I recently picked up a Glock 17 and took it out today. I think that it had some work done on the trigger in the past because it is the smoothest trigger I have ever felt. Are Glock triggers like butter from the factory? I know that it is all comparative and I can't show how smooth to any of you, but I have shot a lot of pistols and it is amazing how smooth it was. I threw in a snap cap so I could really concentrate and yepp, it is like butter.

My g17 is not quite butter, more like honey with a little sand in it!

Who did you buy this from? might want to ask the seller if it ever did get a trigger job. When I get mine I'll let you know.

I find that Glock triggers are acceptable. I've never come across a stock Glock trigger that I've loved. On the other hand, I've never come across a stock Glock trigger that I've hated.

Same here..

It's either you love them or you hate them.

There is no sand in my sweet G17... What r u guys talking about!!!! There is a bit of deterrent but if you don't stray from the original glock pull... You will not notice ; ) lol

Simple polish of the internals or shot enough + 3.5 connector will give it a 'better' perceived trigger.

Would you happen to know a website with pictorial on how to "polish the internals" to get a better trigger.

thank you

The great thing about Glocks isn't the trigger. It's the trigger reset.

Grocks rules!

Sounds like you got a well used Grock.

Sounds like you got a nice gun. My Glock started out smooth, but then got a tiny bit rough. Glock Armorer installed 3 1/2 connector and smoothed parts. Very smooth now and always pulls the same.

Nice thing about Glocks is how easy things like trigger jobs can be accomplished.

Nice.

A 3.5# connector, competition spring, .25 cent trigger job, and lightened firing spring make for a very nice shooting Glock IMHO, and all done in less than 15-20 minutes.
