The new Glock 42 completely broken down before trigger work. Click on the image for a larger view.
Hey all, I did my first Glock 42 trigger job today. I have posted a photo below of the Glock 42 broken completely down. It is a great gun to shoot, very smooth trigger much better than the other 380’s in it’s category. It is comparable to the Kahr PM9 and the Kimber solo. It was very accurate at 25 ft with the stock Glock sights and great with follow up shots with very little perceived recoil. This would be a great pistol for a LEO backup or a very nice CCW summer carry gun.

I have been doing some stippling work this week and figured I would post a couple of the finished projects. The first image is a Glock 23. It had a partial grip reduction with a 360 degree stipple we also cut tactical magazine cut-outs and stippled the slide cover plate to match the grip. The slide was refinished in a tactical grey baked on Cerakote finish. The owner plans on carrying this Glock and decided to stick with all stock Glock internal parts. You can click on the image for a larger view.
- M&P 9
The second image is a Smith & Wesson M&P 9. On this M&P we added a fibre optic front sight, stippled indexing points, stippled the front strap, stippled the back strap and slide plate and we also reduced the area around the magazine release. We also raised the trigger guard slightly at the front strap and smoothed for comfort. You can click on the image for a larger view.
Hey All, hope everyone had a great new year’s. I just want to let everybody know that we will be offering Cerakote as a firearm finish. We will be doing the application in-house which means a pretty quick turnaround time. You will have a choice of either air dry or baked on with too many colors to mention. We should be able to do everything from a Glock slide to a Remington shotgun. I hope to have everything up and running (full production) by May of this year. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call or send me an e-mail.

- Ghost Ultimate Trigger Connector
I have lost count the number of trigger jobs I have done on the Glock’s. I would say my favorite trigger connector to use in my trigger jobs, other than the factory 3.5 lb connector would be the Ghost Ultimate. You can tell it is a quality piece by its looks alone although I still polish and de bur it before it is installed. The self cleaning groove is great for the shooter who doesn’t completely disassemble their trigger housing when cleaning and it really does seem to smooth out the pull. It gives you a better trigger reset that you can both feel and hear. I have yet to have a problem with any ghost connector which is more than I can say for some of the other brands. So if you’re looking for a good 3.5 lb connector you can’t miss with the Ghost Ultimate. Remember you can click on the image for a larger view.
