I only requested pictures of his latest trigger bar to see the changes Eric has made in reference to the stock bar and so to understand the comments about it. Not many people would go through the work I have done to save $35.00. I have always given full credit to Eric at Galloway Precision for his hammer modification that allowed this all to be possible. Eric is aware that few people have the skills or ambition to make/modify their own trigger bars, as I have done. He also knows that I have advertised his business and "spread the word" for those seeking parts to improve the LC9. I am a Galloway customer and will continue to purchase his future improvements for the gun.
Let me restate: Out of respect for Eric , I probably won't post a picture of Eric' s hard work for anyone to attempt to copy.

Bob, since you have already fabricated your own bar and everyone knows it, I'm not sure how you would think my post was directed at you. We're all very anxious to receive our bars and essentially, have a new gun. I'm sure the bar details will eventually be clear but in the meantime, I'm choosing to not broadcast.

Short of everyone sending in their LC9 so Eric can fine tune the hammer and bar to each situation (at considerable increased cost), he is instead leaving room for adjustment since even the stock bars can vary by 1/1000 of millimeters. I imagine the hole location may differ because of this variation and in turn, the tab.

Eric has already stated he will work with everyone to make sure their trigger bar functions perfectly. I might suggest you purchase one and then 1) you will know what it looks like and 2) you can produce a video on how to fine tune the bar to function in each "firebox", with a stock blocker lever of course, for the benefit of all LC9 owners.

lastly, "Not many people would go through the work I have done to save $35.00"-$7.50 vs. 35.00, wanna bet?

Prestige.

I have been on the phone with Eric tonight and he has been great to offer some suggestions. I don't think a picture is going to show this issue on some guns, like mine. It appears that there are a few thousanths interference between the trigger bar tab leading edge and the bottom surfaces of my hammer. This seemingly prevents the hammer from being fully cocked by the slide cycle and also somehow blocks the trigger pull at about the point where the bar would contact the lifter arm.

My hammer,pin and guide rod have been lost in the mail since Dec.14th.

Thanks to Eric, replacement parts are on their way.

Thanks again Eric!!! Chuck in Ridgefield Wa.

Hopefully my question makes sense, but in shortening the trigger travel, does the trigger release the sear/hammer earlier (ie: further forward) or does the pull start further back?

I have an LC9 in 10-day jail right now but after breaking my trigger finger, I have a hard time pulling the trigger fully to the rear. I purchased the pistol (primarily) as a left hand gun but with all this talk of shorter trigger pull and possible pending over-travel stops I am becoming hopeful!

Thanks!

The new Galloway hammer by itself starts the trigger pull further back. Adding the new trigger bar with the hammer moves the trigger release point further forward(shorter overall pull), which it sounds like is what you want.

The hammer/trigger bar combination will shorten trigger pull distance by half, and that pull will start immediately from the front; the gun will now fire at (approx.) what was the half way point before modification. It sounds like what you want.
I hope this helped; I've got nothing but respect for those who carry the shield (the last four gens of my family protected and served -one uncle still does; as a Sheriff in northern Ohio).
FYI, this little gun is really accurate with 147gr Rangers. Good luck.

Just installed my hammer, feels great.

Will the new trigger bar remove the free play at the front of the trigger pull?

Thanks for the responses guys! Looks like a Galloway order is in my future! I'm glad to hear it shoots well with 147gr ammo as that's our only approved round. Though this pistol isn't approved, and will only be carried at home, I'm working on a proposal for it to be an optional off-duty and/or backup gun.

Mine still has a bit of free play, but it's only about 1/16-1/8 of an inch, so it's hardly noticeable. Particularly compared to the factory trigger.

pingman274, has this issue been fixed on your gun?

Actually no, but likely my fault. Eric suggested checking on some things before removing metal, but those did not seem to be issues. I examined the FCG for a long while and thought I had to pretty figured out. Eric said i might have to remove a few thousanths from the leading edge of the trigger bar tab. What was happening was the geometry of my gun was such that the tab would not engage the hammer early enough to allow the hammer to fully cock. I used a small file to remove what we agreed would be about "half" the thickness of a biz card. Sadly, I believe I removed too much, as now the new bar geometry now causes the hammer to release too early and does not have enough force to get to the firing pin.

I put the gun right back together with the original bar and everything works as expected.

I have emailed Eric and he will be getting back to me to discuss. I want to try it again, but i will have to get in line for another bar. On the bright side, the hammer has improved the pull by itself.

As I said in the email some may have to file some on the tab. I apologize for this but due to variation on the hammer pin hole and trigger relationship some will need this. It is the trade off to keep trigger stroke as short as possible. I'll update the website info today. We have a couple hundred hammers and bars going out today and tomorrow and hope to be fully caught up mid to late next week, with the parts up for sale again shortly after that.
Eric
If anyone has any issues be sure to contact me, I'm glad to help.
could you please make a video showing how what the trigger pull looks like after installing the new hammer and trigger bar. i have mine installed but it almost seems my trigger pull is too short now. thanks
