Default Hey, I just improved my trigger!

While cleaning my 40VE after putting another 250 rounds through her (1050 failure free shots now) and then cleaning my G19, I got to thinking, Glock calls the copper colored goop on their guns "lapping compound". They say not to remove it and it helps the moving/mating parts wear in better. I thought that I'd put a dab of this stuff on the sear and firing pin of the 40VE to see what happens. Well, without changing/removing any part(s) at all, I think it feels like I knocked off 2-3 lbs of pull weight. And, it is EXTREMELY smooth now. Holy cow! I can't wait to see what happens after another 250 rounds and/or dry fires. The really nice things are that it was FREE and it is easy to undo!

I thought that stuff on the Glocks was copper base Never-Sieze. On my Glock and my Sigmas I put a tiny drop of Moly based grease on the surfaces where the sear and striker meet. I am talking about a TINY drop, applied with a tooth pick. I also put a tiny drip where the trigger draw bar accutates against the sear. It does improve trigger action. Just make sure to keep it out of the striker channel; that needs to be clean and dry.

Never-Sieze would probably work just as well.

I too thought that the stuff that Glock uses is the same as what I call anti-seize with copper flecks. At least that is what is on my can of the stuff. I just didn't want to make that claim at first. But according to the guy at Glock, It does wear the parts ever so slightly to smooth them. He said leave it on 'till it goes away on it's own. So I figured, why not try it. If it didn't lighten the pull, it sure feels like it did, and that is good!

I think that shouldn't hurt your glocks in any way.i have had over 2 dozen glocks,some with the copper compound left on and some that was cleaned completely before the 1st shot.i could never tell a difference in either gun with or without.
By the way,on my sw40g i use just a small dab of silicone grease (intended for brake calipers) on the sear contact points,it seems to make a difference in the smoothness of the trigger.but remember,just a small dab,too much and you will end up with a nasty concoction of dirt and grease after firing about a hundred rounds.

If it makes you feel any better, I heard two different stories from two different service reps at Glock. One said leave it on as long as possible and the other said that removing it wouldn't hurt anything. Notice that he didn't say to arbitrarily remove it as a first cleaning.

I used the copper anti-seize on my Bushmaster's hammer & Sear. It had an extremely gritty trigger pull and applying this makes the trigger pull very manageable, and smooth!

I hadn't bought a new handgun in over 10 years. I decided a wanted a pistol, and went to a local gun shop where the owner offered me a good deal on a used Glock that was supposed to be like new. When I got home, I took it apart to clean it, and saw the "rust" (I thought) and was dismayed....a good scrubbing took care of it, and I felt better...until I read that it was SUPPOSED to be there.
