Want to change my G26 trigger from serrated to smooth

I was looking at this trigger and wondering if I can put it in my Gen4 G26 http://www.ghostinc.com/product/GLO_...-GENs-1-4.html

Yes it fits in your gen4 G26. Not saying that you shouldn't buy this part, but I stay away from aftermarket trigger mechanism parts. I am sure that Ghost INC is a good company, but sometimes such parts can be a downgrade instead of an upgrade, or even cause safety issues. That's just my opinion on this.

Oops, just found out that this part is a original Glock part. Please ignore my BS post above.

GLOCKPARTS.com should be able to fix you up for a few $$$. They ship using USPS so you don't pay exhorbitant shipping costs for small orders.

Yes, it should work fine.

That statement is based on what I have read, not my own personal experience. Just be aware that the part # (G00357) does not match the picture. While the description says it's for Gen1-4, part # G357 is specifically for Gen1-3. There is a different part # specifically for a Gen4 trigger bar w/ smooth trigger.

Again, that's not to say that G357 will not work in a Gen4, and there are lots of reports that it works fine and actually results in a lighter and smoother trigger pull. The difference is that Part # G357 does not have the hump in the trigger bar. The picture is for the Gen4 specific trigger bar (notice the picture in the ad shows the hump).

This youtube video should make the difference clearer:

Here is what the picture in the ad should look like, assuming it is indeed part # G357:
General Glocking

I could of swore i read somewhere that Glock is only distributing the SP03608 part WITH the hump now. I could be wrong, now i have to find the thread.

I was thinking before I bought that it may be for a Gen 3. I think I saw that video also.

^ You could very well be correct. I've 'read' posts by someone claiming to be a "Glock Certified Amourer" that Glock Inc. has 'blessed' part # 357 in Gen4's, but I have not found any such statement in writing by Glock, Inc.

Of course, you can also find reviews claiming that # 357 does not work perfectly in Gen4's.

"Dropped in easily, and moves smoother that Gen 4 OEM trigger set. But - Does not fully reset every time, just a slight more movement needed to get into full start position."

http://www.amazon.com/Glock-Factory-...owViewpoints=1

I guess it all depends on who's knowledge & testing you want to trust your life with.... It's not that I don't trust every Tom, Dick, and Harry on the internet, it's just that I'd really like to see it writing from Glock Inc... but I'm not holding by breath for that to happen anytime soon.

I replaced the serrated trigger in my GEN3 & GEN4 G19s.

I used a GEN3 trigger in my GEN3 and a GEN4 trigger in my GEN4.

I have no regrets using the "correct" generation trigger.

If you want a smooth trigger on your Glock, why not just buy a round file and some sandpaper, and make your serrated trigger smooth?

I got to the range yesterday so I finally got to try out the new smooth faced trigger. I also installed a Ghost Inc. 4.5lb Ranger connector. When pulled the trigger for the 1st time with this combo the shot went off before I expected, I was like holy s!#t . But I got used to it quickly, the G26 ran like a champ. There was one FTE when my wife shot it (later attributed it to her limp wristing), and a I had a few weak ejections hitting my forearm which has happened before. Other than that I was very happy with its performance.

How much sear engagement do you have with your new trigger assembly?

Pardon my ignorance on sear engagement, I really wouldn't know how to tell. If you can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Glock recommends the sear engage the striker with at least 2/3 or its width.

To verify sear engagement you need to install the orange cover plate so you can see the sear engagement. Then you place an empty magazine in the weapon and release the slide.

If there is less than 2/3 sear engagement of the striker you may need to order a "+" trigger assembly.
