    Here is one with a clearly worn out factory striker. Look at the contact and compare.

    Minimal contact. Not good. This particular combination would be immediately noticed by a competent Glock Armorer.

    After some dry fire practice today, I decided to check the safety mechanisms on the two unloaded Glock pistols I was using. To my surprise, one of them failed the check of the trigger safety blade. I swapped in the factory trigger bar assembly and re-tested it (it passed).

    This forum was a great, immediate source of information for the tests.

    Any chance of the trigger trade-in service returning?

    Triggers are sort of consumables in striker fired weapons. They will wear out. Once they do...you need a new one...primarily the trigger bar.

    The early Glocks used milled pins.

    Not sure...probably started mid Gen 2. We make all milled, heat treated pins either lightened or standard weight so you dont have to guess about it. How cool is that!!??

    No idea when the change happened, buth my Glocks have SI steel firing pins. For a fighting gun, they are a necessary upgrade.

    With regard to your slides, when the option for internals is chosen,
    do the parts include your upgrades? If not, could that also be
    included?
