View Full Version : out of spec trigger bar = very heavy pull ??
I have a police trade in G23 with a NY1 trigger installed. I recently swapped in a G22/17 trigger/trigger bar. Yesterday when dry firing the trigger began to feel progressively heavier and eventually felt so heavy I thought something might give if i kept pressing. I stripped the frame to check everything it seemed ok so i reassembled it and began to dry fire again. It seemed to had resolved itself initially but then reverted to an extremely heavy pull. I put the old trigger and trigger bar back in and it seems to be ok now. Was this the result of an out of spec trigger bar or should i be worried about something else?
How old is your G23? If it is a second gen gun and you are using a current trigger bar there may be an issue with the parts fit. You may have to upgrade?
it is a CZK serial i believe that puts it around 1998-1999. I didn't think of that that makes sense though. Do you know if it is due for a parts update?
Edit: it is a third gen
The trigger bar part number for the G23 is 2303. The trigger bar part number for the 17/22 is 357. These two trigger bars are the same with the exception of the trigger shoe. Either one will take the place of the other, there is no mechanical difference. Compare them side by side and you will see for yourself.
I am assuming your frame has finger grips. If so, that would make it a 2nd gen gun. If this is true, the trigger parts should be the upgraded series. The only advice I have is for you to compare the parts in your gun to the current issue. If you appear to have an older part I recommend you upgrade to current issue.
here are some pictures of the two trigger bars, old (g23, ribbed) on top new (g22/17, smooth on bottom.
An obvious difference here. Check out the trigger spring hole location and the bend on the cruciform leg. If you have a local Armorer I recommend you take the gun to him for a parts upgrade and inspection.
Ok, I wasnt sure if that difference would play a role with the NY1 trigger spring but I will take it to the closest armorer and have it checked out. I will stick with the original trigger for now. Thank you for your help!
