Kineti-Tech Glock Trigger Review

Can you improve upon per­fec­tion? Any­one who has a Glock pis­tol knows that they are per­fect the way they come from the fac­to­ry. Any shoot­er, with min­i­mal train­ing can pick one up, study and under­stand the three points of safe­ty and become pro­fi­cient in under 10 min­utes. That is what makes them per­fect for all lev­els of shoot­ing skill.

How­ev­er, there is a cus­tom Glock mar­ket that has been bur­geon­ing for the last few years that aims to improve on the per­fect plat­form.

So let’s call it just that. A plat­form. Just like many peo­ple con­sid­er the AR15 to be a plat­form, the Glock is quick­ly becom­ing ubiq­ui­tous as “the” pis­tol plat­form.

Glock 19 Gen 4: The Perfect Platform

Glock 19 Gen 4: The Per­fect Plat­form

When I start­ed Project Glock 19 last year, you read about the things I was alter­ing on my own pis­tol and the rea­son­ing behind each addi­tion or alter­ation to the plat­form.

While one of those parts nev­er came to fruition, I am still try­ing to find a good Gen 4 slide, I have final­ly got­ten around to look­ing for a trig­ger shoe upgrade.

Like­wise you know that the entire point of the Project Glock was to build a com­peti­tor to the high end cus­toms com­ing from com­pa­nies like Salient Arms and Agency Arms, but on an hon­est bud­get.

Time To Kick The Shoes Off

I looked around to see what are the avail­able options on the mar­ket for replac­ing the fac­to­ry Glock trig­ger shoe with a straight face trig­ger. As par­tial list includes Zev, Lone Wolf, Apex, yada, yada, yada. As good as they all are, I still don’t have a mon­ey tree grow­ing in my yard that lets me buy what are in my opin­ion out­ra­geous­ly priced parts. In the larg­er pic­ture, that is a good thing for those com­pa­nies. They price their prod­ucts to mar­ket them with the idea of exclu­siv­i­ty. It works.

That being said, I still find a way to work with­in a bud­get I set for my projects.

I wound up look­ing at Kineti-Tech and imme­di­ate­ly I thought, they are doing this for every­one like me. They make a very high qual­i­ty trig­ger kit. Best yet, it is sold in stages. You can pur­chase the shoe sep­a­rate­ly, the shoe and con­nec­tor togeth­er or an entire drop in trig­ger group. They also offer 4  dif­fer­ent shoe mod­els and vari­a­tions on trig­ger safe­ty col­or.

I opt­ed for “Style 4” and a con­nec­tor. The total cost was $84.35 shippped. That is great in com­par­i­son to all the oth­er com­pa­nies I looked at.

Since I have already done the trig­ger work using the Ghost 3.5lb Ulti­mate trig­ger kit, I didn’t need to replace any of that great gear. So the shoe and con­nec­tor ties it all togeth­er.

The Kineti-Tech trig­gers are made in-house, here in the Unit­ed States from hard-coat anodized 7075 alu­minum. The con­nec­tor is stain­less steel.

If you would sim­ply like to replace the trig­ger shoe, you can snag one for $47.95. Not a bad deal at all.

The Down Low

The trig­ger feels great under your fin­ger. The flat face lets you get an eas­i­er grip. It doesn’t seem like much, but to me it feels like my fin­ger just slides straight into place with­out hav­ing to reach fur­ther and cup around the trig­ger.

The draw and reset are much short­er as well. That means more shots on tar­get quick­er and with bet­ter accu­ra­cy.

For the mon­ey, this set­up can’t be beat. The total between the Ghost Kit and the Kineti-tech Trig­ger is $111.74 for a com­plete cus­tom trig­ger job.


As I start­ed this arti­cle, I not­ed that the Glock is actu­al­ly the per­fect plat­form. I have care­ful­ly cho­sen the parts to build out Project Glock to a high end cus­tom on a bud­get.

The Kineti-Tech shoe & con­nec­tor are an excel­lent addi­tion to the build. Aes­thet­ics alone improve the look of the build and func­tion over any­thing else is flaw­less.

This is a rec­om­mend­ed and enthu­si­as­tic buy!

    Great choice! I pur­chased one of these for my G17 when I found out about this com­pa­ny by acci­dent. I liked it so much I grabbed one for my G19 too!
    I went with just the shoe as I’d already done the pol­ish­ing of my trig­gers and much to my sur­prise these things are per­fect for some­one who likes to perk up their guns their self..I can not believe how much smoother, crisper and the take­up is now very short! How does just chang­ing a trig­ger shoe make that much of a dif­fer­ence? These guys have some­how pre­formed mag­ic with a lit­tle piece of alu­minum. If anyone’s on the fence about get­ting one get off that fence and hur­dle that suck­er! I promise you’ll be very hap­py you did. From a true Kineti-Tech Fan Ed

    Does it feel like the ini­tial reach to the Kineti-Tech trig­ger is reduced com­pared to the OEM trig­ger? I have short fin­gers and can bare­ly engage the trig­ger safe­ty when the bore axis is in-like with my fore­arm. I need a short­er reach to the trig­ger face.

      I don’t have the actu­al mea­sure­ment. The near ver­ti­cal face trig­ger they offer might be your best choice.

      With the bot­tom of the shoe not kick­ing for­ward it will prob­a­bly offer you eas­i­er access to seat­ing your fin­ger prop­er­ly.
