Its when you take a polishing pad on a dremel tool and polish your connect rod on your trigger assembly. As a result you get a smoother trigger pull.

Go to YouTube.com and put "Glock 25 cent trigger job" in the search function. There are several videos of differing levels of detail that, in my opinion, give more thorough and "visual" instructions than text with pictures. Just my $.02.

Doing it with a Dremel tool is a good way to screw up the trigger bar and/or the firing pin too.

Quite a few people have come here over the last ten years wondering why their Glock doesn't work, or why it fires more than one shot when they pull the trigger after having done a $.25 trigger job....with a Dremel tool.

Not if you use your brain doing it. Thats why its called buffing, not grinding. If you have some wits about you, the Dremel works better than anything

I was looking all over for this also. On a carry gun should I do the 3.5lb connector also? If so where do I get it?

No way would I advise anyone to use a 3.5 connector with a coil spring in a carry gun!

Around here all Glocks issued by the Ministry of Defense, Military and Police are all issued with the 3.5 lb connector.

You can get the original Glock connector from many online sources, try some at the top of the page or at your local gun shop.

Sorry, but you're 100 percent wrong and Butch was 100 percent right. You seem to have missed his earlier point about things getting too rounded off. If you didn't see rounded off corners after using a buffing wheel, then your eyes are bad and you should look again with magnification.

It's impossible to keep the corners sharp with a buffing wheel simply because they are SOFT and roll over the edges of anything you buff with them.

I get why you do not want to *even minimally* change anything about the cruciform face (sear?)-striker (lug?) engagement but after a reasonable break-in (200 rounds? more? less?) what about literally polishing (just to a mirror finish) the contact faces of the connector and trigger bar as well as the guide rails and the slide grooves with a cone shaped Dremel felt (cotton?) polishing tool at low rpm and some low abrasive polish such as or Blue Metal Polish or ... ? Ditto the contact surfaces of the safety and the disengaging bump on the trigger bar?

I don't yet own a Glock but the ability to do maintenance such as this and changing springs, as Glock recommends, on my own, is one of the reasons I'm so interested in Glock.

Question 2: Is there a definitive Glock recommendation re: when to replace springs on G30sf?

Question: Is the G30sf a Gen3 with a few Gen4 improvements 'slipstreamed'? I haven't been able to confirm yet whether it has the dual recoil spring arrangement.

Sincere Thanks

I think you are wasting your time trying to convince these people. It is only human nature to blame ones failings (in this case the inability to shoot properly) on some external factor (trigger) rather than address the real issue (with practice).

You obviously lost something in translation. Butch didnt say dont do the job, but dont do it with a Dremel because they take too much off.

Enhancing "perfection" is not blaming the gun.

But I dont blame you for your misunderstanding. Its only human nature to grab hold of something so you can try to feel superior and demean others thus feeling better about your own shortcomings.
