LC9 & Galloway Trigger Bar & Hammer

How many LC9 owners have added the Galloway trigger bar and hammer to their LC9?

I hear it shortens the trigger pullback to half the distance for firing?

If you have changed it how do you like it?

Also is it hard to do yourself or better to have a gunsmith do it?

Thinking of getting an LC9

I highly recommend the LC9. Get 1 and dry-fire it 1000 times & put 1000 down range & the trigger is smooth as silk. My recommendation is leave the trigger stock & learn to shoot the gun. If you don't like the gun, buy another small 9mm that suits your taste better.
Sig, Glock, S&W, Taurus all make them. Considering price, reliability, concealment & quality, I think the LC9 is the best thing going(single stack 9mm) & you get Ruger's customer service at no extra charge.

To answer the original question: I have added the Galloway trigger bar/hammer to my LC9 and it does shorten the trigger in half. Well worth the effort, it makes it whole new handgun. With some mechanical skills you can do it yourself, there are videos here on this forum showing how to do it. Not very hard at all.
I held an S&W Shield in my hand today and it didn't fit the hand very well at all, the LC9 was made to be held!

The LC9 with Galloway's trigger kit makes it as good of small 9mm as you can buy. Without the kit it is a fair gun because of the long deep breaking trigger action. That is the number one complaint about the LC9. There are a lot of people that say to just fire it enough and you will get used to it. Or they say you can make an adjustment to your grip and it will be ok. With the Galloway kit there is no adjustment. Just take a normal grip, pull the trigger back 7/16 inch (to the middle of the trigger guard) and bang. The kit installs easily and gives you knowledge on the inner workings of the gun. The kit does add $60 to the overall cost of the LC9.

The new S&W M&P Shield 9mm is a nice gun. The stock gun has a good trigger action, very similar to the LC9 with the Galloway kit. The Shield is striker fired as opposed to the hammer fired LC9. Like other M&P's the trigger can be made even better with minor mods. The shield is just slightly larger than the LC9. It is a little longer, taller and about 4 ounces heavier than the LC9. Since I use my LC9 as a pocket gun, it is as large of gun that I can carry in that location. The Shield's extra weight is the biggest factor. Just can't keep adding weight and keep the pants up. Can only tighten my belt so tight. lol
