Some folks bend that prong to align with the center of the blocker.

I don't bend mine because it would probably void the lifetime warranty. I just grease the side of the trigger bar instead.

Not sure what you mean by "spongy" so maybe you can describe it in more detail.

Remember that there is a slight gap where the rear of the trigger bar hits the sear system. You can observe that by pulling the trigger with the slide off. Is that what you are feeling?
It just feels gritty like plastic rubbing together with metal. I'm hoping this isn't something that can't be fixed. I've emailed pictures and video over to Apex Tactical so I'm eager to hear what they'll say tomorrow. I function checked it and everything is working fine.

The trigger pull is smooth when the slide isn't on. It's when the weapon is fully assembled that the trigger gets gritty.

When the slide is on the sear engages the lug on the striker and pulls it further back, same as any double-action gun.

Try this - with the slide off, turn it upside down and pull the striker back with your fingernail.

How does that feel? Gritty?

YES! That is the grittiness I feel!

I figured it out. I had installed the striker spring stops backwards. That was causing the plastic on metal friction. I'm an idiot for doing that. There was a white sleeve that came out though that looks like it goes over the striker spring. However the Apex installation video doesn't show that ever. Anyone know what that white sleeve is or does??

Besides that, the trigger feels great. No friction. As smooth as butter. Thanks for the help!

Are there perhaps two pieces of plastic sleeve, one not removed?

Look at parts 35 and 6 in this Glock schematic.

I believe the nylon sleeve is there to prevent metal to metal friction from the striker sliding in the striker channel. The longer sleeve just slides over the spring end of the striker assembly. The other nylon bushing is locked on until you disassemble the striker.

i dropped the galloway kit in a older sigma 40. it took the trigger pull down to 6 pounds. then after several boxes of ammo shot the trigger got better. with my old lyman trigger pull scale puts it at around 5 pounds. not bad for a gun that was over 8 pounds. thinking about doing a second galloway kit for my second sigma 40.

Default Galloway vs Apex

Apex actually used to get their springs from Galloway precision and spring are the same
