My wife has been shooting her engraved LC9 since she bought it and has consistently complained about her trigger finger getting pinched with the deep break. It's doing a lot of idle sitting time accordingly.
I've been paying attention to the Galloway trigger mod with her in mind for quite a while. However, I did not want to risk changing the only components we had from the gun.
Recently I was skimming through the MidwayUSA website and saw that they carry the individual parts. OK, they're on backorder for later this month. We now have an order with Midway and I intend to send those in to Galloway and keep the originals as spares just-in-case.
I'll be about $60 in... about holster money. I'll potentially have a happier wife who might then consider carrying her LC9 or I can revert it back to original stock. If it works the way I expect, I can upgrade mine. This could get interesting...
For the record:
The Ruger Pistol Forums (formerly Elsie Pea Forum) management does not approve, endorse or recommend ANY modifications to a firearm that would affect, change, or remove any safety feature or function on that firearm. Firearm owners should also be aware that making any modifications to a firearm not only may void the firearm manufacturer's warranty but may expose the shooter and others to unwarranted safety hazards. Firearm owners must be aware that they will likely be held liable for any consequences arising from modifying their firearms.

I do not mean any disrespect to Galloway (I see they are a commercial sponsor) but I would like to see an independent test showing a minimum of 250 problem-free rounds with these parts before I would even consider installing in my LCP designed and purchased for personal defense. When it comes to carry weapons and safety, there is little margin for error.
I agree with kraigster. My other problem is a modification of a weapon that you carry for self defense. If you modify it and need to use it a good prosecuting attorney could claim the modification caused the weapon to easily discharge and cause bodily harm to the perp.
You have to be alive to be prosecuted or sued. You shouldn't pull the gun except to save your life. The rest is speculative at best.
I guess that my first consideration is that currently, my wife's LC9 is a paper weight because of the long pinching trigger pull. She's set on carrying her LCP.
I'm not looking for a hair trigger to make it easier to holes in a perp, just a marginally shorter pull that may be equivalent to that of a Shield or Kahr. If it does that and no more, 250 test rounds sounds very reasonable.
This is just a good opportunity to satisfy my curiousity.
In the interim, we can get back to the modification vs SD discussion.
Disclaimer in the OP still applies.
You guys are getting totally off point. We are NOT talking about the legal ramifications but the safety and functionality, i.e., will this gun function error-free with the after-market trigger, etc. I am advocating for extensive testing prior to carry, that is all.
On the LC9 I parts I have no experience as I sadly do not own the gun but I do have the trigger for the LCP and have put 400 rounds through it a mix of both HP and target ammo this was in one session at the range I did not have one failure nor did the gun show any reliability or safety concerns.
