Ask any professional Firearms Instructor about shooting well, and his/her first few sentences will have ‘trigger control’ in them. A quality trigger press, without shifting the weapon, will virtually guarantee you a hit on your target. If your sights were aligned, it’s a fundamental given.
Few controls on your pistol have the overall impact on successful shooting, as your trigger. This wasn’t lost on us in our search to make the Glock, the best combat sidearm on the planet. This lead to the next latest upgrade, the new VTCT Series- Vickers Tactical Carry Trigger.
Let’s start with the Flat Faced trigger shape. It’s popular among combat & competition shooters, and for good reason. With the large front surface and a low trigger safety, the shooter can gain maximum mechanical advantage. This gives the perceived feel of a lighter trigger press. Another benefit allows trigger movement straight back, without unconsciously ‘pushing’ the weapon to one side or another, as with some OE triggers.
Since there is no vertical ‘ridge’ in the middle of the trigger face to irritate your finger, shooting on the range all day becomes a lot more comfortable.
Function wise, we kept the mechanical take-up that most Glock shooters have come to know and appreciate when they carry concealed. However, we shortened the over travel just a tick to get you back into reset quicker, for a faster follow-up shot if needed.
We then molded the entire trigger assembly in the exact same polymers used by Glock, for the ultimate in reliability, durability and compatibility. All pivot pins are 17-4 Stainless Steel, and splined for maximum retention when assembled. Because we didn’t CNC machine any of the assembly in aluminum with the customary hard-coat anodize finish, the VTCT won’t ever get hot after a long training session. Our trigger is an insulator, not a heat conductor. It won’t abrade or create wear that damages the frame, possibly disabling the trigger safety. Since all of the geometry is molded in place, there are no set screws or adjustments to fail, leaving you with a dead weapon or one that ‘doubles’. The VTCT is easily installed in minutes by a Certified Glock Armorer.
So, to recap, there are very few modifications you can perform to your pistol that will reward the effort as the VTCT Carry Trigger. Try one, see your accuracy improve and you won’t go back. Know that it is as rugged as your Glock, and will always have your back.
Recommended that this product be installed by a Certified Glock Armorer. After any trigger work on your Glock, trigger bar and firing pin engagement must be inspected and possible adjusted to proper Glock factory specification.
