Hey all,

I'd like to swap the target trigger for the smooth trigger on my 36. I've heard you can order the smooth trigger w/trigger bar and just swap the triggers out. Is this true and if so, how do you get the pin out to remove the trigger from the trigger bar?

Thanks,

Doc

You might have better luck in the Gunsmithing forum, but in a nutshell, you use a pin punch to push the pins out, and it's pretty easy. Probably takes 10 minutes if you haven't done it before, or 5 if you have. You can do some polishing while you're in there to improve the trigger feel.

Do a search for the "25 cent trigger job" and you'll find complete instructions, including getting the trigger group out.

I installed a G21 Trigger/Trigger Bar in my G30. I installed a G22 Trigger/Trigger Bar in my G27. But, there is no such smooth face trigger interchangeability with other Glocks for the model 36.

I've done the 25 cent trigger job and more. I have a Ghost 3.5 connector and NY1 spring too. Makes the trigger much more like a my GP100 revolver. The pin I want to remove is the one holding the trigger to the trigger bar. I wish Glock or another manufacturer would make a smooth trigger w/trigger bar for the 36. Until then, I hope someone can tell me a way to do it.

I asked the same thing recently on AR15.com

The answer was that trigger bars will not work with it. (obviously)

I was looking at the pins in the trigger itself and would also like to know how/if they can be removed.

Yes, it can be done. Order a smooth trigger w/trigger bar and drive the trigger pin out of the housing through the plastic with a 3/32 punch. It left a clean hole in the plastic trigger housing of mine. I then did the same with the trigger from my 36. Install the smooth trigger and set the pin. Some suggested that if I wanted to I could close the hole up with epoxy and india ink. I didn't see the need so I didn't. Here is a link to the thread with the info in it: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=797934

Hope this helps.

Obviously the trigger bar will not work without it...

I put a G17 smooth trigger on mine with no problem, but as Karson said, the trigger bar won't work. That was before I installed A Siderlock, which is the best of both worlds.:cool:

I simply took mine out of the gun and used fine sandpaper to smooth all the edges until I liked it and haven't looked back since.
