Gloxkworx trigger kit..
Posted 24 May 2012 - 02:15 PM
As now, the takeup is totally gone, disabling the drop safety and the striker safety, and reset is absolutely the very same of my stock glock trigger.
I'm not fumbled with take up and overtravel screws.
I hoped for reset reduction but that's not the case, I'm missing something?
Any help appreciated, thanks!

also, if reset reduction is your goal, have you adjusted the allen key on the trigger pad and found out if that gets you your desired result?

As they set up the latter, I don't think I can reduce it more (inspected with an armorer slide plate during trigger pull)pre-traveň, however, is reduced too much, all the internal safeties are disabled.
I tought they used a custom trigger bar, but for what I can see is a stock glock erly 3gen trigger bar with long nose, not even polished. I tried the glockworx connector and trigger spring included in the kit but reset was very mushy and I swapped them with a lwd connector and a stock spring, now reset is snappier and positive, but the amount of traver is the very same as with a stock trigger bar (I mean it was also the very same even with glockworx connector).
For what I know, reset distance is a direct result of trigger bar nose/connector profile, if the amount of travel is shortened by reducing overtravel, you can reach the point where the striker drags on the trigger bar inducing malfunctions.
Also, as I can see, installing glockworx parts (trigger bar, spring, connector, ti plunger safety and spring and trigger housing) lead to a gritty trigger pull, with mushy reset even with a stock striker and spring.
I will try to experiment more in the evening when I return from work..

I switched back to my stock trigger, the glockworx was also gritty.

I am currently running the ultimate kit and its perfect. The reset is fast and the pre travel is minimal....and it breaks smooth. I think you just need more adjusting and you'll be fine.

The major source of grittines was the Ti plunger safety, but also the trigger pad was rough inside the hole.
I cleaned, deburred and polished the glockworx trigger bar to a mirror finish, but the Ti plunger was still very rough. Removed It for my polished stock plunger and that was much better.
Played with pretravel and overtravel screws until overtravel was almost removed (Not completely, I make sure that the striker clared the trigger bar during pull), shortened pretravel roughly 25 percent compared to stock trigger in order to leave operational the striker safety.
The glockworx trigger spring and connector failed..connector was very rough, and the trigger spring lead to a very mushy and inconsistent reset.
Removed it for my usual LWD polished connector, and stock glock trigger spring.
..the pretravel screw backed out considerably during range training..used some 242 loctite and continued shooting..
Reset, the original point of concern for me, is ABSOLUTELY equal to a stock glock trigger. I compared it to a stock g34, marking reset point on the trigger guard.
So at the end I paid nearly 200 EUROS for a stock glock trigger bar with an aluminium pad that left factory preset in a dangerous way (striker safety disabled, drop safety disabled), rough and gritty. A stock glock trigger housing with a mushy connector and a useless trigger spring.
I tried everything, with the stock nr3 striker spring the trigger was too heavy for me, and with the reduced nr2 striker spring the striker had a very inconsistent reset.
The worst part is that it was claimed Boldly that the trigger would had a 50percent reset redution, that's simply not true.

have you called the customer service folks and made your case. no way you should pay that much for something not working for you and not resolve the issue, give glockworx the chance to help you out and if no results just return it. If they crap on you then share that story here, but otherwise I suspect they will be very accomodating.
If not, that's good advice. they might be a great help to you. At any rate, thank a lot for the information. I'm taking notes on all these aftermarket parts.

I marked the back and forward points, the reset distance, is the very same..
So the overtravel stop is doing nothing? I thought that would help shorten some if the perceived reset.
Sorry to hear this isn't working the way you hoped. I'm slowly getting convinced that the people in the know were right all along. A little polish job is all the Glock trigger really needs.

I've done quite a few trigger job on glocks, reducing effectively the mechanichal reset, altering the curve of the rear part of trigger bar. So yes, It can be done, and glockworx claims a MECHANICAL 50percent reset reduction. What bothers me is that claim is simply NOT TRUE. They did nothing to shorten reset. The overtravel stop did not riduce reset.
Just read your trigger job post and see a little better what you mean. Not really surprised that the Glockworx bar does not reduce reset. They leave a few things lacking in the attention to detail imo. I may attempt to mod their standard trigger bar to reduce reset. I am too cheap to have purchased a Fulcrum.
