    Am I the only guy that doesn't like the Gen5 trigger?

    I've owned two Gen5's...one of the first G19's and a recent G17 MOS (both since traded away).

    I've also owned Gen4 guns (also long gone) and always find myself coming back to the Gen3 or Gen2's. They just seem to fill my hand right and have great triggers.

    I have finally just come to accept I MUCH PREFER the factory Gen2/Gen3 triggers (Gen4 had the stupid bump on the trigger bar).

    I want to give MRD another chance on a Glock. I'm pondering trying to find an old Gen2 or one of the repro-P80's (if I can find one).

    Thoughts?

    Iím with you.

    The old Gen2 & 3 triggers before the dogleg trigger bar weíre pretty dang good.

    The ones since arenít the same. Unpredictable and more overtravel.

    Iím with you. Much prefer my G2/3/4 triggers. But my G3 trigger w home polish job is by far my favorite. Then I added a Smooth faced Johnny Glock trigger to the factory trigger bar. Very nice.

    @KevH, same here. I just got my first G5, a 17MOS, and after spending some time with it, I prefer the trigger on every one of my G4s.

    If we are having a candid conversation, if you want a great trigger, you donít buy a Glock.

    I like early Gen triggers better, but I prefer the mag well, ejection/extraction, and accuracy of the Gen 5 pistols. Pick whatever trade off works best for you.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I like all of the ones I've owned from Gen 2 to Gen 5.


    Clearly, there's just something wrong with the boy.
    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.

    I've got to admit to being a fan of Foghorn Leghorn.

    That's no joke, I say, that's not a joke son.

    The ejection of my Gen5s rivals a good 1911.

    The Gen4s I had dribbled brass every which direction.

    I wouldnít go back.
