    Why all the whining about the G2, G2C, G2S tigger?

    I see it in YouTube videos, their accompanying comments, online gun magazine reviews, and on gun forums... Heck, I even see people complaining about the trigger on this forum... I just don't get it. Is it just because people have been conditioned into believing that a decent trigger must be just like or similar to a target, competition, or Glock trigger? That if they don't make a useless loud clicking noise or have a similar take up, reset, and trigger weight, then there's something wrong with it?

    The odd part and what I find even more baffling is that some of the same people who'll dismiss or complain about the attributes of the G2C, etc triggers, e.g., the long inital pull, will claim that they love the trigger on a particular DA/SA pistol or DAO revolver both of which also have a long, but heavier, trigger pull... Apparently they have no issues or qualms about shooting DA/SA Sigs, CZs, etc or DAO revolvers, but the G2C trigger is a problem? So much so that it needs to be altered, or they have to go with another plateform altogether?

    There's light take up with little to no resistance until you quickly hit the wall, and then there's a short, crisp, very audible break. The reset is short as well. The long trigger pull is only on the initial pull. You can easily stage the trigger against the wall for slow accurate shots.... In a self defense situation, which this gun is designed for, it's just not going to matter... I just don't get it... Can someone explain it to me?

    In searching for videos that mimic my experience and opinion, I came across the following:

    The early ones had a well documented "hitch" or a bump in the trigger take-up, that was annoying. I had it on my 2nd one and it has since been resolved.

    Ah ok... I only owned the PT111 G2 and recently purchased the G2S. Was the hitch on the early G2Cs?

    Actually the early PT 111 G2 models, and not all of them. I bought one in black that was fine and wondered what everyone was talking about...got one in exchange for my PT 145 SS and it had the hitch. It's pretty much worked out with the heat gun application, lube and firing it. I agree that it is just about the perfect carry piece for weight, size, capacity and accuracy.

    My recent purchase g2s had the hitch. I replaced the trigger.

    The biggest problem on the reset issue is people releasing their finger off the trigger after firing the firearm and then re grasping it. Keep your finger on the trigger, pull it ...fire the gun, keep finger on the trigger and ride it forward to the reset position. That position is not much of a travel.

    That is why I stick with the First Gen MilPro`s and 24/7`s the Gen 2 has the Glock Style nothing wrong with that style if one likes it. My take on it If I wanted a GLOCK I`d buy one.

    Well the whole second-strike capability was kind of unique. People tend to not like things that are different. That design required that long dead-pull so the trigger could work DA if it needed the second-strike. They didn't understand that was the reason for it. Mostly, it's ignorance.

    I have a few guns and they all have different triggers, but they all have one thing in common...when you pull the trigger, they go bang. I'm not a gunsmith and I don't consider myself knowledgeable about guns, but I agree with you. All the concern over trigger pull, weight, reset, etc. means nothing to me. Weaker minded individuals may think I'm discounting or dismissing their concern--not at all. It just doesn't mean anything to me. To each his own.

    The only issue I would imagine is if you had some really extra huge monkey hands it would be a little goofy. But I totally agree, take up, then you can feel a little squish as the striker safety disengages then wall. It is funny, people crap talk the trigger then shoot really good with it. If the trigger was bad, you wouldn't be shooting like that Mr Smarty.
