    How about a combination of filling in w/ JBWeld, and then sanding it smooth? The JBW is thin enough consistency that it may not even fill the grooves completely. You would probably need to put tape on the sides of the trigger to keep it from running away while it sets up.

    I’m plenty comfortable with doing the smoothing, I’ve done several over the last 25 years of shooting Glocks - but I feel the results are lacking. And trust me, I’m a skilled modelmaker that knows what I’m doing. It’s about the results.

    By the way, I saw your original reply... sweet. Bye.

    I just swapped all my slim line pistols to the Vicker's Tango Down flat face trigger shoe. I like it a lot. It does nothing to improve the pre travel or anything, slightly shorter reset if you really pay attention to it slowly dry firing and resetting the trigger. It works just fine with a SCD as well.

    My Overwatch PolyDAT for my Gen 5 19 showed up in the mail today. I was anticipating having to modify it for it to work with my "standard trigger" gadget like Tom mentioned, but it works fine as is and the gadget lays flat. This is a pleasant surprise since my previous experience with one of their metal triggers wouldn't allow the gadget to lay flat.

    The PolyDAT may have removed a very very small amount of take up, but since the gadget functionality isn't impeded, I'm not going to mess with modifying it. I'm VERY happy with the feel of the trigger and see absolutely no reason to pay extra for a metal version. I'd actually say the trigger pull on this feels better than the metal version I had before. I've got more on the way for my other 19 and my 48.

    Maybe the good people at Overwatch Precision have seen the light and realized that pre-travel reduction is teh stoopid (to use an internetism from a decade or two ago). I should probably buy another and check for myself.

    I think there's a bit of tolerance stacking or whatever it's called baked in. On my two Gen 5 G19s with Overwatch TACs, one of my SCDs lays flush; the other is slightly pushed out, but I can only really tell when the two are side by side.

    I can't speak to my 43X or 48 as the SCDs have been out of stock for those models.

    For less than two weeks. They'll be back in stock soonish.

    Apex Tactical trigger, Glock standard connector, Wolff 6LB firing pin spring. Takes out slack, adds positive feedback through press, has firm reset. I wanted a “people management trigger” that eliminated creep and Glock slack. Wanted consistent resistance through break. YMMV.
