LC9 with 35% Galloway trigger bar increased trigger pull weight

On a stock LC9 the trigger pull weight measured 6lbs. After installing the Galloway 35% bar I measure 8lbs. There is nothing binding. Does the 35% trigger bar affect the trigger pull weight? Has anyone noticed anything like this? I didn't want to disassemble the gun and reinstall the stock bar to check.

increased trigger pull

Hi, Steve. I sent my LC9 off to Galloway for their full treatment. It came back so smooth and with a shorter trigger pull that I never bothered to test it. ( I dont have a trigger pull pound gauge anyhow ) I would call Galloway and ask them. They are more than helpfull. Or possibly just send yours off to them. Having them do the installation of all their pieces made a 100% better gun. Good luck.

When I installed mine I noticed no difference in pull weight, only a shorter smoother pull.

The difference in pull and feel of the Galloway trigger bar for me is so negligible that I would pass on one for $35 much less $100 with a trigger I wouldn't even want. The stock trigger bar and the noticeably shorter Galloway bar didn't amount to much difference for me in the real world.

I haven't tried it myself, but Galloway claims their kit will actually lower the trigger by about 1 1/2 lbs so if it does what it claims your trigger should be lighter. Did you install the complete kit, springs & all? From Galloway's website... "-This will create, when correctly installed, a lighter by 1.5 lb trigger pull that has a 50% shorter than stock trigger pull length and reset. That's 35% shorter due to our trigger bar and an extra 15% reduction from the trigger, equaling a 50% shorter pull length."

If you shorten the pull length and the hammer pulls back the same distance, something has to change. With Galloway's trigger bar, there is a different pivot point and disconnect profile. The shorter pull should also increase the trigger pull slightly, maybe a few ounces, but not 2 pounds. Something is wrong with the install to cause that much pull difference. I did the 35% bar, and I am sensitive to pull weight, and I did not notice a perceptible change in pull weight. I have a Lyman digital pull weight gage, and since I didn't notice a difference, I never measured the before or after.

Galloway's claim to lower the pull weight 1 1/2 pounds, is with his lower pull weight hammer spring, not just installing the 35% trigger bar. The issue with trying to lower the trigger pull weight, on a double action, hammer fired gun, is if you lower the hammer spring pressure much, you bring in the possibility of getting light hits. When I first got my LC9, mid 2011, I tried lowering the trigger pull weight, and got it 2 pounds lower, from 8 to 6 pounds. Boy did the dry fires feel great, but when I went shooting, half my shots were light hits. Not a good thing on a SD gun. I immediately changed the spring pressure back to the stock pull.

on my lc9 with nothing but the galloway bar installed and some 400 rounds or so threw the gun with that trigger bar the pull is 5.8lbs. this is using the pull gauge at the center of the trigger. I didnt check it prior to installing the new trigger bar but by feel the pull weight didnt really significantly change on mine when i did the mod.

most that ive seen that have been gauged are around 6lbs stock.
