#1 Overwatch Precision TAC Glock Trigger

Overwatch Precision TAC Glock Trigger

Overwatch Precision TAC Trigger – This can be a good replacement for the stock flat-panel trigger. This trigger also features a short trigger trip. With an overhang of just 0.24 inches, optimal comfort was achieved without compromising safety. Trigger width provides self-adjusting trigger pull and even finger placement. All trigger parts are made in the USA from durable 7075-T6 aluminum alloy. The parts attached to the 3rd generation OEM trigger strip and additionally are coated with NP3. For smooth and trouble-free operation, 316 stainless steel coil spring pins are used for fastening. When it comes to the durability of the running surface of the trigger shoe and safety tab, they are coated with Type III anodized to MIL-A-8625. It is very solid and reliable. The manufacturer was forced to sacrifice the convenience of setting the traction weight. The factory trigger settings of this model will remain unchanged forever. By getting rid of the tuning system, reliability has increased significantly, but tuning for your personal convenience has become impossible. If you are looking for unbreakable precision and stability, this trigger has a “fighting character”.

What I liked:
  • Convenient trigger
  • Short stroke 0.24 inch
What I didn’t like:
  • No traction weight setting

#2 Ghost Inc EVO Elite 3.5 Trigger Installation Kit EETIK

Ghost Inc EVO Elite 3.5 Trigger Installation Kit EETIK

Reinstalling the factory trigger for the Glock GEN 1-5 has never been easier. Everything you need to install is already assembled in this Ghost Inc EVO Elite Trigger kit. You get complete independence from the gunsmith and can independently achieve the required parameters for comfortable shooting. All video instructions have already been prepared by the manufacturer and are freely available on the official website. The trigger that comes with this kit is quite smooth and has a short and precise stroke. You are guaranteed to get rid of overtravel and if you polish the safety piston, you will get the trigger of your dreams. If you are not intimidated by a little manual work, this kit is for you.

What I liked:
  • Perfectly accurate response
  • Suitable for GEN 1-5
  • Complete set of springs included
  • Ghost Lifetime Warranty
What I didn’t like:
  • Does not fit Glock 42 and 43
  • Not supplied with red back-plate
  • Small installation required

#3 Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Kit

Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Kit 

A factory 5th generation Glock trigger needs a lot of pull. If you decide to replace the factory trigger to make the trigger travel softer and lighter, consider the Apex Action Enhancement Trigger. You will certainly feel the difference, especially if you fire more than 500 shots in one day. This kit will provide a shorter, smoother ride with about 1-1.5 lb less force, and smoother absorption and release. At the same time, great attention is paid to comfort (ergonomics) and safety. The Apex trigger has a sleek flat design that most Glock owners love. With this design, the trigger feels much better so side pressure is minimized. You will find everything you need to reinstall your Glock’s factory trigger yourself in this kit.  If you study the video tutorials on the manufacturer’s website, the replacement will not take more than 2 minutes and it is really simple and easy. The only thing that is important to consider before placing an order is compatibility. This trigger is compatible with 5th generation Glock pistols: G17, G19, G19x, G26, G34, G44, G45. Due to the design of the trigger and trigger bar, this product will not work with 3rd and 4th generation Glock models and is not compatible with the .45 ACP. This set will help you shoot more pleasantly and accurately, but this is not a competition sniper set. For accurate shooting, you need more sensitive triggers and this is not one of them.

What I liked:
  • 1-pound force reduction
  • Convenient flat design
  • Easy installation in 2 minutes
What I didn’t like:
  • Not compatible with 3rd and 4th generation Glock

#4 Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Kit

Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Kit

If you become the proud owner of Glock, you may have noticed some of the peculiarities of the factory trigger. The trigger feels quite rough, hard when pressed, with cancellous fracture and return. Many shooters don’t like this, which is why Apex created their standout Apex Action Enhancement Trigger Kit. This kit allows you to completely replace the resin trigger, safety plunger, and connector. This has significantly improved the pressing feel. This reduced the trigger travel and the pull is smoother, clearer, and easier. Where it used to require about 5 pounds of force, it’s now at 4 pounds. If the stroke has decreased, therefore, the return has decreased, which is also nice.

If you choose this kit, you will need to install an Apex Ultimate safety piston and an Apex Performance connector. The new safety piston provides excellent wearing safety and protection against accidental drops. This trigger feels much better than the pre-installed trigger, but it will take up to 10 minutes to install. An important clarification from the manufacturer, this is suitable for Glock (including Gen 4 versions): G17, G17L, G19, G22, G23, G24, G26, G27, G31, G32, G33, G34, G35. Not suitable for Glock 10mm, .45 ACP, or .45 GAP models. and Gen 5 models.

What I liked:
  • Reduces trigger travel and load
  • Clear break, smooth absorption, and discharge
What I didn’t like:
  • Only one design

#5 Killer Innovations Velocity Glock 5.5 lb Trigger

Killer Innovations Velocity Glock 5.5 lb Trigger

The Killer Innovations Velocity Glock 5.5lb trigger is a worthy replacement for the pre-installed trigger on the Glock pistol. It has a smoother ride and a crisp dash, which many shooters note. You can even feel the difference without firing a single shot. This trigger comes in a variety of different designs (colors) and a nice-tactile, textured jagged face. Killer Innovations places great emphasis on accuracy and safety. They manufacture their triggers from anodized aluminum for durability, corrosion resistance, without weighing down your weapon. Your shooting (especially long-term) will be guaranteed to be more accurate if you do not lose energy for intense concentration before each shot. It’s only 1 second or less, but after 500 shots you will definitely feel the difference. This trigger does not make any magic improvements – it just does its job consistently and clearly. Make sure this modification is valid for your weapon and try it out soon! In most cases, installation is not difficult, but if difficulties arise, watch the training videos again.

What I liked:
  • Reduces weight and travel
  • Has many different designs
What I didn’t like:
  • The price seems a little overpriced

#6 Apex Tactical Specialties Glock Action Enhancement Trigger

Apex Tactical Specialties Glock Action Enhancement Trigger

This is another alternative version to replace the polymer factory trigger of your Glock Gen 3. To be frank, it also fits other Glock models: G17, G17L, G19, G22, G23, G24, G26, G27, G31, G32, G33, G34. G35, G37, G38, G39. For Gen 2 this is compatible but may require additional manual adjustments. But don’t even try to install it in Gen 5 – it won’t work. Combined with the Apex Ultimate Safety Plunger, the overall stroke will be noticeably smoother and shorter. You will need less than 5 pounds of force to fire, which is much less than the preset trigger. Break and drop – crisp and clean. The two-color design is discreet and fits any pistol color. For this trigger, the fuse works flush and there is no need to fear accidental operation or failure of the internal security system. In addition, you have the right to paint the trigger with the enamel of any chosen color for an even greater effect. It feels like a good trigger with a big edge. The pressure is even and absolutely comfortable. You will also notice a significant reduction in overtravel after replacement. It may be a weak substitute for sniper shooting in competition, but it is a very economical proposition for home protection.

What I liked:
  • Easy installation in 5 minutes
  • Short stroke and clear break
  • Reduced pressing weight and reduced overtravel
  • Good price
What I didn’t like:
  • No adjustment

#7 Lone Wolf Ultimate Adjustable Glock

Lone Wolf Ultimate Adjustable Glock

Lone Wolf decided to completely change the rules of the game and created a proposal that will definitely push you to experiment with your Glock. If the factory trigger doesn’t meet your expectations and feels uncomfortable when pressed, it’s time to fix it. The first thing to note is the ability to adjust the Ultimate Adjustable Trigger as desired. Adjustment requires removal of the trigger from the gun and reinstallation. This upgrade is available for all Glock models except Gen 5. Wolf is going to fix this shortly and fully satisfy all Glock owners. This is a versatile model and the differences between pistols are taken into account thanks to the interchangeable shoes. Version 9/40 fits all Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glocks (except G43). Version 10/45 fits all 10mm and 45ACP Glocks (except G36).

The design of the aluminum shoes is symmetrical with large rounded edges and a smooth surface. The safety arm is also extended and adheres to the shoe for maximum comfort. Lone Wolf also redesigned it. Their trigger is 2-piece and has no extrusion pins. When making their triggers on CNC machines, the utmost accuracy was achieved, which was reflected in stricter tolerances. Vibrations between the shoe and the trigger bar are reduced to the limit. If you’re wondering to what extent the push weight can be reduced, that’s less than 3 pounds. We did not continue the experiment with dry fires, because we were simply tired of assembling and disassembling. We have achieved our goal (even more than expected) and we can say our conclusion – this is quite viable.

What I liked:
  • Adjustment possible
  • Installation requires 1 screw
  • Suitable for all but Gen 5
  • 13 models available
What I didn’t like:
  • To adjust, the trigger must be removed
  • Adjustment takes time

#8 Agency Arms Syndicate Glock Drop-In Trigger

Agency Arms Syndicate Glock Drop-In Trigger

We continue to do the impossible and found another interesting offer for you. The Glock Drop-In trigger has an incredible price tag and has already caught our attention. This trigger has only 2 models, which are suitable for Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 26, Glock 34. One of the models can be easily integrated with Glock 19X, Glock 45. Therefore, be careful when ordering. Agency Arms Syndicate has created a polymer trigger with a comfortable and reliable design. It has a wide, flat face and a slightly raised toe so that the finger is always in control of its position. The corners are neatly smoothed out and it actually feels good.

In terms of material, the use of polymer is driven by the desire to reduce the weight of the weapon. Also this allowed to significantly reduce the price. Of course, CNC machined metal has tighter tolerances, but this trigger is not much of a hassle either. It may have some roughness and you may feel some excessive resistance, but the friction is on our side this time. Just a few dry fires and this will be much easier. And if you still use a couple of drops of gun oil, the problem will disappear by itself. And of course, remember to clean and lubricate the trigger after the 500-shot cycle.

What I liked:
  • Unbeatable price
  • Works better than pre-installed
What I didn’t like:
  • Polymer trigger
  • Suitable for a small number of Glock models

#9 ZEV Technologies Fulcrum Adjustable Glock Trigger Upgrade Bar

ZEV Technologies Fulcrum Adjustable Glock Trigger Upgrade Bar

Zev Technologies presented its unique offering to the aftermarket of triggers. Fulcrum Adjustable turns the Glock into a highly sensitive and accurate weapon. This trigger has found widespread use among professionals and is very often used for competition. According to the company, the new product line was being prepared for 2 years. Each trigger has been designed for over 1000 hours and passed after hundreds of thousands of rounds of challenges, now it is ready to win your heart. The ZEV Trigger Bar features an interchangeable trigger guard for the Glock. This not only reduces launch weight, provides short, smooth travel and precise actuation, but also fully complies with Glock’s safety requirements. The wide pad with a gentle curve feels good and is quite comfortable on the finger.

Adjusting this trigger also commands respect for the designers. Adjustment screws built into the trigger pad allow pre-travel and post-travel to be adjusted to personal preference. To adjust the force of the actuation, you will need to experiment with the firing pin safety spring, and the striker spring. This fits across a wide range of Glock models and you are sure to find the right trigger for you. The design is classic and austere, without any fear or mistrust. Everything looks well-built and fits perfectly together. If you are looking for something very precise and sensitive – pay attention to this offer and get your money ready. This upgrade costs over $100 for your Glock.

What I liked:
  • Sniper Accuracy
  • Adjustable trigger
  • Suitable for a wide range of models
What I didn’t like:
  • Recommended for competition only
  • ZEV boom only included with small frame kit (9mm / .40)

#10 Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Trigger

Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Trigger

Due to many small design differences in different generations of Glock pistols, not all triggers are compatible with pistols. This trigger is for Gen 5 and is a good alternative to the polymer preset trigger. Apex guarantees quality as always and promises you will make a difference. What should change with the new trigger? Reduced starting weight, reduced drop distance, smoother assimilation and release, clear break, and of course a more user-friendly design. The flat black face of the trigger looks strict and restrained, it is quite comfortable to obey the finger and you can fully concentrate on your goal. The centrally mounted fuse fully complies with the safety values. Thanks to the reduced return time, you can fire a new shot much earlier. If every second counts, that can be the deciding factor.

Apex does not specify how much pressure this trigger has, but the company says the weight will decrease 1 pound from the preset weight. Assuming that the Glock Gen 5 weighs 5.85 lbs (or 26 N), it would require 4.85 lbs of force. Setting this trigger shouldn’t be difficult either. All video instructions are available on the manufacturer’s website and explain each step of the installation in detail.

What I liked:
  • Reduced starting weight
  • Robust design
What I didn’t like:
  • Doesn’t work with Gen 3 and Gen 4

#11 ZEV Technologies PRO Flat Face 9mm Glock Trigger Drop-In Kit

ZEV Technologies PRO Flat Face 9mm Glock Trigger Drop-In Kit

This is not just a trigger to install, it is a complete installation kit to replace the pre-installed Glock trigger yourself. By purchasing this, you will find: PRO trigger bar, trigger spring ejector, proprietary hammer spring, complete safety mechanism, PRO connector, and trigger. The ZEV PRO flat-faced trigger mechanism with rivets is a complete replacement for the pre-installed Glock 9mm polymer trigger system. If you previously required almost 6 pounds of force to fire, with this trigger it will only be 3.5 pounds. Good drop, little creep, and not perfect break (our 4/5 rating) are what we were able to recognize. As much as we abuse this trigger, but after 1000 shots it remained the same as we got it out of the box. With this, you can shoot quite comfortably and not feel additional fatigue. We also understand that you may have your own evaluation criteria. Therefore, our recommendation is this – try it and see for yourself, this set with a trigger deserves attention.

What I liked:
  • Reduced launch weight
  • Passed the combat test “1000 shots”
What I didn’t like:
  • Doesn’t work with Gen 5
  • No exact information on compatibility (you need to ask the seller)
  • Price seems overpriced

#12 Lone Wolf Ultimate Adjustable Glock Trigger

Lone Wolf Ultimate Adjustable Glock Trigger

These are suggestions for the economical lovers of partial upgrades of their weapons. If you don’t like the performance of your trigger system, the correct trigger shoe may fix it. Lone Wolf has just prepared an offer suitable for almost all Glock owners (except for Gen 5). Choose only the shoe (no trigger) and fit it to any Glock rail. For Gen 1 and Gen 2 (and G43), the bare shoe fits perfectly directly onto the boom. The Ultimate Adjustable Trigger is made from aluminum. The 9/40 and 10/45 versions (LWD stainless steel bar included) provide all the necessary parameters for comfortable shooting but continue to be accessible to everyone. You can also adjust this addition yourself. Tighten the overtravel set screws to obtain a clearer break.

What I liked:
  • Good appearance
  • Installation and configuration in just a few minutes
What I didn’t like:
  • Instruction leaves questions
  • Very small screws

#13 Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Trigger Kit

Apex Tactical Specialties Action Enhancement Trigger Kit

As you may have noticed, the Glock 43 / 43x / 48 are rarely on the compatibility list due to the slim frame. Especially for the “lucky ones” who have chosen this model, we also have an interesting offer. The Apex Action Enhancement Trigger Kit has a trigger bar and an Apex Performance connector. This is a complete replacement for your Glock’s pre-installed trigger. It feels good, stretches easily, is beautifully folded, and looks really cool! If you like combinations with red, this trigger could be your favorite! We really liked the red anodized trigger cover, so we decided to add this proposal to our review.

What I liked:
  • Spectacular design
  • The whole kit is beautifully built
  • Decent improvement on the preset trigger
What I didn’t like:
  • Narrow layout, only for Glock 43 / 43x / 48

#14 Glock Triggers VOGEL Competition Trigger System

Glock Triggers VOGEL Competition Trigger System

VOGEL Competition is a Trigger System approved by Robert G. Vogel and validated for use across all USPSA and IDPA divisions. We believe that this is a loud claim to win. VOGEL triggers are recommended for competition use ONLY due to their incredible sensitivity. This kit contains everything you need to set up and calibrate your new favorite trigger. All internal parts and pistons are carefully polished to a mirror finish. We are truly delighted with the quality of the workmanship and the attention to the smallest details!

You are free to customize this trigger to your liking and replace any of the springs in the kit. For this purpose, the manufacturer added three additional springs with reduced power to the set (for replacement at each stage of operation). The adjusting screw for correcting the overtravel (with a hex head) has its own adjusting key, which is also very convenient. You can change your pulling weight in ½ pound increments right between dry fires. If for some reason you want to go back to the basic trigger (for example, you want to test this system on another Glock), it can just as easily be dismantled in just a few minutes. This is a damn attractive set with a good package and well worth the money. If you are a true perfectionist and connoisseur of jewelry precision, please yourself with this trigger.

What I liked:
  • USPSA and IDPA approved
  • Excellent appearance
  • 5 models available to suit different Glocks
  • Fine-tuning in ½ lb. increments
What I didn’t like:
  • Competition only
  • Price above average

#15 TRYBE Defense Glock Gen 5 Trigger

TRYBE Defense Glock Gen 5 Trigger

This offer from Trybe is aimed at the thrifty shooter. If you haven’t bought a secondary trigger yet, this is a good intermediate option. It doesn’t seem unreasonably expensive and looks quite serious. Hexagon design in vibrant trigger colors (available in full black) and complemented by a trigger frame. It definitely works better than the pre-installed Glock trigger. It is worth noting that Trybe is committed to expressing gratitude to the security and medical staff for their difficult and dangerous work. If your job is to protect the community, you may qualify for an additional discount. You will need to provide the serial number of the purchased company product and you will receive a partial refund. Otherwise, it is compatible with G19X, G45, G34, G17, G26, G19, so be careful.

What I liked:
  • 4 designs
  • Attractive price and discounts
What I didn’t like:
  • Doesn’t look like a professional trigger

#16 Laser Ammo Reset Trigger for Glock Pistols

Laser Ammo Reset Trigger for Glock Pistols


It takes practice to become a good shooter. Shooting at a range will help fix this, but it’s not always convenient. To gain additional experience and get used to pulling the trigger, you need to take training shots. A set of laser trigger and laser bullets (and laser targets) was created specifically for training novice shooters Laser Ammo. All you need is a few minutes for setup and batteries. By practicing dry shots, you can practice fast aiming movements and simulation of a shot. You will be able to train indoors, in a traffic jam, or any convenient place, if it does not contradict the legislation.

The laser trigger for dropping ammunition for the Glock pistol is very close to the preset Glock trigger. You get an excellent simulation of feedback and learn to recognize the degree of pressure and also know where you might have gotten. Another feature, the trigger eliminates pulling the bolt after each shot to reload the trigger. Triggers of this principle are widely used in training programs for security recruits. Install the trigger on the SureStrike training guns.

If you were interested in how quickly you can release the entire clip to one point, this is your chance. You can challenge yourself without drawing the attention of the rest of the family. Train your agility quietly and completely safe.

What I liked:
  • Realistic simulation trigger
What I didn’t like:
  • Training trigger only
  • Not suitable for everyone Glock
  • High price

#17 Agency Arms Drop-In Trigger, Glock 17/19/19X/26/34 Gen5

Agency Arms Drop-In Trigger, Glock 17/19/19X/26/34 Gen5

Agency Arms has unveiled 2 escapement models that will be a great addition to the Glock 17/19 / 19X / 26/34 Gen5, 3AF-PTR-GLKDIT2. These trigger kits from Agency Arms have wide flat-toed shoes. They are designed to reduce pre-bias and provide a comfortable depression. The bottom of the shoe protrudes slightly so that the finger automatically finds the most comfortable position for pressing. As always, you get crisp actuation, better reset, and full retention of all three Glock safety devices. To summarize this proposal in a few words, it is: easy to install, reliable in operation, and quite attractive both in design and in price. There is no comprehensive information on the compatibility of these triggers with the Glock range on the manufacturer’s (and seller’s) website. If you are not sure about compatibility, ask the seller a question and he will promptly answer you. If this particular trigger does not suit you, the seller will offer you alternative models that suit you.

What I liked:
  • Robust aluminum construction
  • Attractive design and price
What I didn’t like:
  • The narrow range is not suitable for all Glocks


What is the trigger pull on a Glock?
Pulling the pre-installed Glock trigger will require a force of 5.85 lbs or 26 N. But this can be changed by purchasing one of these aftermarket triggers, or by replacing the trigger springs (some tinkering).
Are aftermarket Glock triggers worth it?
Definitely worth it. Aftermarket triggers not only reduce trigger weight,but also reduce travel distance, add sharpness to the fracture and improve return. Other than that, the standard Glock trigger face is not very comfortable.
Do Glock triggers break-in?
The factory Glock trigger is made of polymer and is fully functional after 1000 shots. Personally, we rely more on components made of stainless steel or anodized aluminum.
How does the Glock trigger work?
Glock’s standard trigger performs its robot quite successfully without additional improvements. You need to install a new trigger when you do not feel the satisfaction of shooting.


Among our applicants, you saw brands with varying degrees of recognition. Suggestions for the thrifty, demanding, and mark shooters are plentiful. Everyone can choose what they think is necessary and we have done everything to ensure that your choice was successful and deliberate.

Among all the presented contestants, we would like to highlight those who we liked the most:
