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.
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!
