Im looking for the olive 8# (I think) trigger for my G26. Anybody have one they would be willing to part with? Ive seen them on ebay. Just how hard is it to install is this part? Ive never had my glock apart more than standard field strip for cleaning purposes (slide removed and barrel and guide spring out). My goal is to make the gun safer from accidentaly touching the trigger. It would give me peace of mind for when I start to carry. Do you think I should go with the 12# trigger? Will I need to replace any other parts to switch to either of these triggers?

I can see if theres one where I work, we do lots of Glock stuff, and changeing the trigger pull is not hard at all. Push out the rear pin in the grip and pull up the trigger assembly untill you can pull out the trigger bar.

Yep

But pull the trigger stuff out slowly and in a room where you can find stuff if it flys out. Learned this the hard way one to many times... Where I work I go in the bathroom close the door and the lid of the crapper when Im expecting parts to fly out.

^^^ Just cup your hand over the area you're disassembling. Anything that flies out will bounce off your hand and drop onto your work surface. Either that or put a light-color towel over your head and the parts so you can see what you're working on (safety glasses recommended of course), and the towel can act as a "backstop" of sorts to catch any flying parts. :D

Well I got the new trigger spring yesterday and put it in today. I ended up destroying the stock spring to get it out (cut one of the hooks off, I know Im no gunsmith LOL). I figured if I screwed something up and needed to go back to stock I could buy another $3 spring. The new trigger spring (which looks nothing like the stock spring) dropped right in place. Tried it out with some dry fires. Trigger takeup seems smoother and harder but not too hard. Then the final release snap is noticably harder but not a huge difference. I got the olive 8# spring. I would have liked to be able to try the orange (11# I think) trigger just to see if I like it better but oh well Ill just stick with this and just be happy that its better than stock. I wanted this done because it makes me feel safer. The trigger will now take a more deliberate pull to set it off.
