    Vickers Tactical/Tango Down Flat Faced Triggers

    Recently Tango Down released another Larry Vickers item for the Glock. It's a flat faced trigger (trigger shoe) for the Gen 3/4 as well as the Gen 5. I ordered one for my G19 and my G19X to test out before I swap them all out. Since they have been just installed I have done nothing more than dry-fire practice. These triggers are made from polymer rather than aluminum. According to TD it is made from the same polymer as the Glock and there are no heat transfer issues.

    One thing that will be a little quirky is the installation since you must remove the shoe from the trigger bar and install the new one. There are a few videos on YouTube that explain the procedure. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks I will be able to get some range time and I will provide some additional information about how my particular ones are set up.

    I’m going to try one of these out - the price is reasonable, and I have 3 or 4 former G19 serrated trigger assemblies gathering dust. The trigger shoe swap is very easy, especially since you don’t need to preserve the old shoe. I’ve never used a flat trigger, so this looks like an affordable way to try one.

    Just in case anyone cares, I was curious about how the TD website has a drop down menu to select the color of the trigger. I emailed them, and they wrote right back and said that they only have plans for black in the immediate future. They said that if they offer another color in the future, it will probably just be Glock tan.

    Looks good. I may have to give these a try.

    Looking forward to hearing what you think after a few range trips.

    I'm definitely a fan of the flat faced trigger based on my time with the P320. I can see myself switching out to these in due time.

    I’ve had one of these installed in a Glock 19 gen 5 now for a couple weeks. I have fired 400 rounds through the 19.5 with this trigger using various drills. For ME personally this trigger does not work well. I have large hands and the way my index finger interfaces with the trigger the trigger safety hits the frame as I press through and causes a “glitch” for lack of a better word. I contacted TD about this issue and was told to use the bottom of the trigger guard as a reference point for correct finger placement, to ensure the safety doesn’t catch on the frame. Using their recommendation does correct the problem, but for me it takes a conscious effort to ensure just the right placement on the trigger. This is a deal breaker for me as I am not willing to swap out all my Glock triggers and train for that very specific muscle memory. For what it’s worth I compared the TD trigger to a standard trigger slow firing at a B-8 standing from 25 yards and could tell no significant improvement in my groupings. As always YMMV.

    Great feedback, Dirk. That will be something to look out for.

    I bought one but haven't installed it yet. Is the trigger safety on yours really hard to depress? I'm thinking mine might be defective.

    Once you install it properly the safety shouldn’t be hard to depress.

    Installed it and I hate this thing lol.
    The natural placement of my finger doesn't allow the safety to fully depress, causing it to snag on the rear of the frame before the trigger breaks. This is the same reason I dislike the M&P's hinge trigger, but this is way worse. This never happened with my OEM or Overwatch triggers. The dingus itself is harder to depress than OEM and Overwatch...mine may be defective.

    Update: Even when I place my finger low on the trigger, the rear of the safety still snags against the frame.

    Like the other posters I have the same issue of the trigger safety snagging on the bottom of the frame. Emailed Tango and they explained to press on the bottom portion of the trigger as thats how flat faced triggers work. I will give it another range session with trying to press only the bottom part of the trigger. When I was shooting it felt like a two stage trigger in a sense, once the trigger safety bypassed the edge of the frame I could feel a click and then after continuing to squeeze the shot would break. I will give it another range session and see how I like it, I do have rather large hands so I hope its not an issue.
