Adjustable aluminum trigger for LC9 and LCP

This is a discussion on Adjustable aluminum trigger for LC9 and LCP within the LCP Technical forums, part of the LCP Pocket category; I everyday carry a glock with a short, factory, 5.5 lb trigger. I don't think shortening up the long travel a little bit is anything ...

    I don't think shortening up the long travel a little bit is anything to worry about. Good holster and training is all you need in a gun you trust.

    I want one
    I deserve it
    it's shiny

    This is on my list... With my weak hand issues (index finger tip, or lack of one) this addresses the problem to the tee. The trigger was the ONLY item that had an outstanding concern. I'm sure my strong hand will benefit also.
    Please post a review after your install and range test.

    Sending off for the shiny one too. Contacted Ross at RTK and will be sending the funds tomorrow. Looking forward to tearing Elsea down for the replacement. As long as I'm in there I'll take a close look at the other parts to see if there are any rough edges that need to be smoothed. No, I won't be doing any work on the sear, I'll leave that alone.

    got mine today
    tore elsie down
    went to put trigger pin in the new trigger, doesn't fit...
    makes it through first hole and then starts in 2nd kind of and stops.
    pin slides in and out smoothly in original trigger



    tap tap tap, nope, needed pliers to get it out.

    emailed Ross and await his answer
    put elsie back together with old trigger and function checked

    good practice

    update, Ross from RTK contacted me within the hour and tested 75 triggers in his shop and found one other one that the trigger pin did not fit, so he is sending me a new one.
    will update when i get it.
    nice guy and prompt communications

    Sounds like good service! Watching this thread very closely for my LC9. Keep us posted!

    I got new trigger from Ross, installed easily enough (i will try and do a write up later, took a lot of pics during, but its fairly easy)
    Will shoot on sunday.
    First impressions without shooting:
    Quality: Ross from RTK did a fine job on these. Very nicely and accurately machined. You can tell he knows what he is doing.
    Feel: I like the smooth feel of the metal, its less curved, also there is a tiny hole in the middle that was drilled for the adjustment screws that acts kind of like a "locate center by feel" indicator for your finger pad.
    Look: looks cool
    Adjustment:
    Overtravel screw: Almost pointless, you can reduce overtravel by about a dimes width, and if set too much, your gun won't fire. I also think the screw will wear a spot on the polymer eventually, although that is just a guess at this point.

    (click on pictures to zoom in - keep clicking for more zoom)

    Takeup Screw: You can adjust excess takeup (how far forward the trigger goes) about the width of a nickel. If set too much, your trigger won't reset (have to have screw all the way out to get to that state).
    I'll have to play with this more to get an opinion.

    I have a feeling I might just end up taking out the adjustment screws all together and just keep it for the look and feel of the new trigger.
    Not sure how I feel about those little screws being the difference between bang and no bang. Even though it clearly states to adjust and then SET WITH BLUE LOCTITE so they won't move. Being a jeep owner, I am very familiar with loctite and completely trust it. I just need to play with it more to see if I will keep them in. Like Ross says in his video, it won't make it a range gun.

    But again, I haven't fired it yet so things may change
