Overtravel: tab or Screw

I want to try a overtravel removal method. there seems to be two methods, a screw in the ejector housing, or the tab on the connector.

So which one is a better method?

The set screw method gives you some freedom for future changes of triggerbar, striker, etc, and any chosen setting remains reversible.

I would think a set screw in the frame right about here.
General Glocking

It wouldn't be as easy as adjusting a screw in the trigger bar at the bend but would be less obtrusive and wouldn't damage the trigger bar. Tap frame and get a plastic screw if you can find one.

I saw pics of an M&P (set screw at the other end of the mag well because that's where the bend is) done like that and the owner seemed pretty happy.

In the frame? In the trigger bar?

Ummmm... all of the professional over travel screws I've seen are done in the trigger housing. You CERTAINLY don't want to go hacking up a frame for that.

For the OP.... the ones in the trigger housing might be harder to do yourself, but that's how Vanek and I think Zev and others do it.

The tab is what you get with a Ghost Rocket.

I bought a Vanek trigger (not one with an overtravel stop) and spent hundreds for it.

A Ghost Rocket with spring kit and polish job (the polish job requires your time and knowledge) and I think it's as good if not better than the Vanek. And it's all of $35.

So it might depend on if you mind spending a lot of money or not. I'm not cheap, but if I can get something very close for a LOT less.... I'm all about that.
Me and my 3 USPSA Shooting buddies (3 are Bs and one A) all use the Rocket, love it. I don't have a trigger pull gauge, but I'm thinking right around 3lbs.

I agree and I wouldn't do it myself. But, I've seen pictures of it done and it appeared to work.

I keep my triggers stock but some folks like to tinker.

I'm pretty sensitive to overtravel but never really felt Glocks were that bad. I do know this, if I have to solve a problem that requires modifying a part, the one part I don't start with is the one with the serial number, that I can only get through an FFL.

Ghost Rocket,spring kit and a polishing job of the internals. I have both my 19's set up like this and they both have smooth pull, minimal pre travel and a short reset. And it doesn't cost an arm and a leg
