View Full Version : I polished too much on my Glock 25 cent trigger job

02-27-2014, 10:23 AM
I have a brand new Glock 22 Gen 3 and before going to the range I took it apart, cleaned it, lubed it and did the 25 cent trigger job. I used Mother's mag aluminum polish and a low speed dremel with a polishing pad. I didn't think I polished too much but apparently I have. I went to the range and it did a couple rapid 2 round bursts. Now, which of the following do I need to replace to fix this? The trigger/trigger bar, the connector, the firing pin or the firing pin safety?
Thanks for any input.

Did you polish all of them?

All of them. If 1 is messed up, they likely all are.

Never mod an unfired gun :(

Yes, I had polished all of them. However, I just took it apart checked the fire pin safety and when I removed the safety I saw the spring laying sideways in the bottom of the hole. So, I assume this is the cause. I just made sure I pushed that spring tightly into the fire pin safety and checked it's fit by tugging on it. It seems tight in the pin now. I believe that it should be fixed. I guess I will just have to force myself to go to the range again to test it out. Thanks for the input guys. If it still does it I will replace the parts. But, I doubt that is it. I was pretty careful not to polish too much.

Thanks DFence. I will keep that in mind.

Wait...so if I remove the firing pin safety I can have full-auto Glocks?? :shock:

The lack-of-function of the firing pin safety will NOT cause doubling.
You could fully defeat the firing pin safety and an otherwise proper set of glock fire control parts will work normally.
I shot a glock for about a year in competition without a firing pin safety installed.
It never doubled.
