Just got my new to me striker and will be going after the trigger. The trigger is pinned to the mag box, it has 2 bars running to the rear with a roller on the back. What generation is it/what is the adjust procedure?

Jason,

That is a Gen1 trigger.

Jason,

I am certainly no gunsmith ..... but I did use the 3 links below to perform the trigger work on my 2 personal strikers (which I believe includes the one you now have).

I felt confident after reading these posts several times to adjust the trigger. I took them to where I was comfortable, without jeopardizing any functionality of the safety.

If you do the adjustments yourself make sure that you do a safety and reliability check before AND after reassembling the gun.

I have found that too much adjusting can lead to a trigger that will slam-fire, or disengaging the safety will drop the sear.

Be careful and keep checking for safety and reliability.


Without replacement parts (or shims) you will be somewhat limited on what you can do with the striker trigger, but that is no secret.


Good Luck,

I wish you all the luck in the world.
Hopefully your trigger skills are better than mine.

That was as far as I could go and keep it passing my safety test, then I backed up just a whisker for a little more margin of safety.

I never stoned anything so if your confident and capable I am sure there would be gains available by doing so.

I also never replaced the spring, which is what I would recommend tackling first.

Keep us posted on how it turns out for you.

I'll second testing before and after reassembly. When I got mine it was already adjusted and would fire (snap on an empty chamber)when slammed or the back end bumped on the carpet. I adjusted slammed the bolt home as hard as I could out of the stock and thought I had a good safe trigger until I put it back together and it would still slam fire. Had to do it a couple of times before I was happy with it.
