Glock 25 Cent Trigger Job

Want to smooth out your Glock trigger in the comfort of your own home?

The Glock 25 cent trigger job is using polishing compound and polishing a couple of internal surfaces to get a smoother trigger.

I’ve done this on two separate guns, one after 500 rounds and one after 2000 rounds.

I could feel the difference in the 500 round gun but it felt pretty much the same in the 2000 round gun.

Disclaimer since you could mess up your gun.

Why?

The purpose is just to polish and not take actual metal off.

You can use a Q-Tip, a rag, your fingers, or the fastest option is to go with the Dremel.  Just a little bit will make the surfaces look like chrome and move more smoothly over each other.

The jury is still out on whether or not this is needed if you shoot the gun a lot.

In theory, the more you shoot the more the parts will naturally rub against each other and do the same thing.

 

Essential Tools

  • Fine polishing compound such as Flitz or Car Polishing Compound
    • I prefer the polishing compound since if it’s good enough for a clear coat, I’d have to really mess up to take off metal on my gun parts.
  • Q-Tips or a rag
  • Dremel 4000 Kit with the polishing attachment.  Or just hand-polish.

Where to Polish

Safety Plunger

Shiny surface in the middle and while some of the coating has already flaked off, it is smooth as butter.  A good test is to run a Q-Tip across and see if any fibers get stuck.

Here’s a great video to see how shiny the parts really get.  My camera does not do the polish justice!

    I was rather unhappy with the trigger on my Glock 23 Gen 4, it was just brutal compared to the Glock 23 Gen 2 it replaced (that I had since new). It shoot worse than all my other guns from FN, Browning, S&W, Ruger, and Sig. I did the 25 cent trigger job with Mother's Mag Polish and my DeWalt drill/driver, which kept it from being too aggresive. And, I installed the Glock 3.5# connector (about a 4.5-5# trigger), and it was like a new gun! Never shot it better, it was like getting a new gun! I'm going to take it to IDPA this week. Cheers

      Agreed. In my experience, doing this yields about the same results as shooting 1000 rounds. But this only takes a few minutes, so why not?

      Hi George, sorry not familiar with that one. But the essence of polishing metal parts that touch each other will apply.
