As you can probably tell from my long-standing moniker I am a Glock fan-boy. Have been since the 1st time my uncle was issued one with the his police department when I was in high-school, and on the day of my 21st birthday, I got my 1st one, a Glock 19, 1st gen. That was twenty years ago and Glocks have continued to dominate in law enforcement, as well as home-defense and recreational shooting intended use sales. But now with the addition of the Glock 34 and 35, many competitive shooters have started using them.
But as perfect of a design that the Glock may have been, the trigger has always been a bit lacking for most shooters. For single slow aimed fire, I was always able to take up the Glock’s heavy take-up pull, and then finalize the aim and let it “break” over. It was just how I taught myself how to do it which is great for slow fire, but not in a match where you are trying to put 2 on a target as fast as possible, and this is why I always defaulted back to one of my custom 1911’s for competition it was just to tough of a proposition for me to give up the short reset and lighter trigger engagement of a custom built 1911.
Enter The McNally Trigger.
This changes everything for me. Not only is a complete drop-in, but you can fully adjust it for over-travel and return travel. It also incorporates a very comfortable smooth flat and wide trigger shoe – which I did not think I would like as much as I did.
In short, what you get are the following benefits:
- The trigger doesn’t travel as far, as a traditional Glock trigger does, which causes you to pull of target at the critical moment that the striker has been released.
- It is lighter, which is paramount to an accurate firearm.
- The reset is shorter, which makes it feel more like a 1911’s short reset, which cut my follow up shot time considerably over the traditional glock setup that I’ve used for decades.
- It is much more comfortable, and allows me to put more of my finger tip evenly across the trigger shoe.
- Safety is not compromised in any way as you lose none of the integrated Glock “safe action” mechanisms.
I started to make a video of installing it an adjusting it, but decided that would be crazy when John himself does such a great job of this on his website, so please check it out here.
I highly recommend this and encourage you to support John, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the AR15targets.com precision 3 gun match a few months ago. He’s a really nice guy and champion shooter, along with his father and brother, so he knows the importance of a good trigger and now he has brought that to us for what I think may be the most superb pistol design of all time.
Thanks for your time, and please give one a try and tell them GlockandRoll from TGR sent you!
