I was getting ready to glue a piece of material inside the trigger guard to reduce the trigger overtravel. Is there any reason this is a bad idea? Is there a better way to remove the overtravel?
A simple adjustable set screw drilled and tapped through the center of the trigger. Just like the ones seen on TV! Not a Bad idea.
That's better than a pad for the trigger to land on?
It certainly is the more common solution.
Check with the gunsmith before any alterations.
we had a customer that installed a trigger shoe on his pistol, it also had an over-travel screw on it. structurally there should be no problem. there are pictures on the forum somewhere, i just cant track them down...
that said, it seems like a lot of work for very little improvement. you are almost on top of the back of the trigger guard before the sear releases, not a lot of overtravel...
but then again, everyone has a slightly different preference as to how they like their gun to handle... and that is one of the GREAT things about this biz!
I glued a pad of neoprene on for the trigger to land on. Works super well.
You can do some crazy things with "Crazy Glue!"...or "Super Glue."
