The Why Behind GlockTriggers

The Why Behind GlockTriggers

GlockTriggers produces the highest quality drop-in trigger systems for your Glock pistol. We use Glock factory parts as the backbone of our trigger systems. Reliability is the reason we begin our process with OEM parts. After hundreds of thousands of rounds and comprehensive research and development we have developed trigger systems that we believe to be the best available. The Edge, Vogel, Skimmer, Guardian and Hackathorn will give you every advantage you need for competition or carry. Everyone who has tested our triggers has been amazed at the quick, clean break and the short reset. Our products are used by some of the most experienced Glock operators in the Competitive Shooting arena as well as Military and Law Enforcement.


“Being a trigger manufacturer for a Glock handgun, we take that responsibility very seriously. We know that we have to produce a product that’s going to work no matter what.”


We hold up very high standards of quality. We’re all friends that share a passion for the same thing – the shooting sports. And also it’s a creative environment where we’re perpetually trying to make improvements on things.


Glock handguns, when they’re manufactured, they manufacture them in such a way to make them extremely reliable, but not extremely user-friendly. We thought, “Well, what can we do to make it better?” On some models, we reduce the travel.  On all the models, We polish up all the contact points and make sure that all the pieces are fit properly.


We use factory parts because they’re reliable. That is something that is a must. Triggers have to work. Everything is done by hand.


“At some point in the process, every individual unit, I personally inspect.”


Our customers, they span the spectrum, from responsible armed citizens, to competition shooters, to military and law enforcement. And we have models that suit each one of those roles.


What we do is we do a complete drop in system using the factory parts. At the beginning of the trigger pull, the pretravel is much much smoother because the interaction of the metal parts have been refined. The overall trigger pull from beginning to end is going to be a remarkable improvement over the stock trigger, but we’re not going to lose the reliability that those parts offer. It’s an easy install drop-in piece, so you don’t have to modify any parts.


So what you get with our trigger, is you get a cleaner, smoother, crisper break, with a very positive reset.

5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Glock Trigger

5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Glock Trigger


Glock handguns do not deliver the precision of a Swiss timepiece.

You might expect more from a firearm that is one of the top selling handguns in the world and used by the majority of U.S. law enforcement agencies. Let’s explore the advantages of upgrading your factory trigger to a GlockTriggers custom trigger system.



Most Glock factory metal trigger parts are manufactured using a process called stamping. This process yields parts with edges that would only be expected if an angry beaver had created them. The jagged edges and contact surfaces cause the parts to skip and drag, producing an unpredictable feel with erratic tension throughout the trigger pull.


Using GlockTriggers’ proprietary process, the rough edges are refined. The result is highly polished surfaces that glide freely and produce an immediate noticeable improvement in the smoothness and consistency of the trigger pull.



Glock factory parts produce a long take-up, mushy break and an excessive amount of over-travel. This is less than optimal when a situation calls for speed.

Many of the GlockTriggers models, such as Skimmer, Edge and G43 RP, feature our proprietary pre-travel reduction modification. This eliminates nearly half of the take-up experienced at the beginning of the trigger pull.  Our Vogel and Edge competition models include an adjustable overtravel stop, which shortens the reset and allows for faster follow-up shots.



Accuracy is the ability to perform a task consistently and precisely. When shooting for accuracy, you strive to create the smallest group possible on the target. Your trigger must function in the same way each time it is pressed.

GlockTriggers smooth take-up, crisp break and travel reduction modification assist the operator in reducing pre-shot muzzle movement. The factory trigger’s inconsistent long travel can rob the most experienced shooter of their optimal potential for accuracy.



The “Safe Action System” of Glock handguns is one factor that launched them to their legendary status in the industry. “The Other Guys” manufacture aluminum parts using features and specs that focus more on marketing than on maintaining the original Glock trigger design.

GlockTriggers systems are built with 100% OEM (factory) parts.  The utilization of factory parts in ALL of our trigger systems ensures proper function and reliability. We test every individual trigger in a Glock pistol to ensure that all safeties function as intended.



What good is it to own a firearm that is no fun to shoot? The most often heard complaint about Glocks is that the triggers are spongy, creepy and not operator friendly.

Our customers report that upgrading to a GlockTriggers custom trigger system has boosted confidence in their shooting ability, has helped to improve their marksmanship and they now enjoy their range time more than ever.
