    This. Plus, you are thinning the trigger down this way. That was how I put a smooth trigger in my long gone G36 years ago, quite frankly it sucked - and I’m a skilled modelmaker.

    Why would I be joking? You’re taking the trigger face down to the the depth of the deepest groove, and then contouring.

    I don’t like kludges, but you do you.

    I apologize in advance for taking this thread sideways.

    I have always changed my G19 and 26 triggers to smooth faced. I have recently got another G19 on a trade and I didn't have a spare smooth trigger, so I installed a serrated one. Went to the range, shot it a bit, looked at the targets, checked my timer, and then realized that I didn't really know why I was changing those triggers all that time.
    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    I positively hate any serrated DA trigger. But striker triggers? DGAF. The travel is so short, I can't tell a difference.

    If you do not feel comfortable with this minor smoothing of the finger grooves Do Not Do It.

    @DJC the apex trigger is an option. It’s a flat faced trigger shoe. Due to trigger finger sting, I briefly had one in a 43X but found I preferred simply filing down the trigger blade/dingus such that it sits flush with trigger. If you want an apex G48 trigger shoe/bar shoot me a PM you can have mine for cheap. It has ~100 res through it.

    I’m very happy with the Apex kit in my 48.

    Good discussion.

    I’ve got parts en route from Overwatch (DAT Trigger w bar, NP3 connector, NP3 safety plunger) because I wanted to try that same setup in my G43X (I have an Overwatch Trigger w bar in my G19 game gun. )
