K. Joe Hill: Can you uses just the hammer?
Conrad Luznar: Looks like you have a nice working LC9 now.
Home Defense Weapons: The cheap Remington ammo is low to medium grade quality. Is yours a stock
trigger or is it the Galloway trigger mod? If it is the original Ruger
trigger I would test the ammo in another gun. If the problem persists then
contact Ruger service. I had problems with debris getting into the firing
pin channel when using certain brands of ammo. I did a video about it. It
is possible that the problem is with the ammo. Thanks for your comment
mantarayasurf: Nice video sir, thanks for sharing. I got one too and it is a nice piece I
will get that Galloway kit to upgrade it. since I dont like the oem trigger
fendermon: To continue...I used the trick I saw on Galloways video to re-install the
pin of putting the pin in a hole (I used a board) and then tapping the
hammer down on to it. Also, a note on removing the pin...My punches were
cheap and not sized right. An accurate/ exact size punch is needed on this
pin. Cut corners here and you are going to regret it. Good luck and, it
really is a great mod.
Oscar Santi: Hey Chuck, I was wondering if this i something a Gunsmith will do? I'm not
very handy and I'm afraid to mess up my LC9.
MrBigike76: Thanks. Informative video. May keep mine yet.
Home Defense Weapons: I like American Eagle for practice and Federal Hydra Shok and Federal HST
AmericanMade: Finally! A solution!
jetfueluser: Hey Chuck, I would be very interested to know how well the trigger mod is
functioning after you've fired more rounds through the LC9. Very
informative video, also like your vids on the Nano. The Holster Store in
Florida also makes a good leather holster for the LC9.
Home Defense Weapons: Thank you. The LC9 is a great little 9mm. I don't understand why Ruger
doesn't improve the trigger to make it even better.
Zilnich P.: Exactly what i was wondering,thanks.
Riddco: How much did the parts cost? I bought one for my wife and we just got back
from the range. She had that same complaint that the trigger broke way too
far back. Thanks in advance.
Home Defense Weapons: Thank you, I need to do an update video after shooting 1000 rounds with the
improved trigger. That will be coming soon.
dog bait: Well I am disappointed with my modified parts from Eric Galloway. I now
have a LC9 that has a light strike problem with Tulammo. I would not be too
concerned except that is the only type of ammo I been able to purchase
locally. I will go back to the stock hammer and trigger bar. Light strikes
for CCW does not cut it. ·
sjagain: Excellent video. The reset is nice too!
Daniel Casher: I sent my LC9 to Galloway. I live in AL, and I had to send the slide in one
box and the frame in another. Let Galloway do the job. I got the trigger
job, stainless spring guide, heavier springs, everything but the different
trigger for somewhere around $140. Worth every penny. Much easier to fire
the pistol accurately now. Go on the Galloway website for details. Nice
people too, You won't be disappointed.
Home Defense Weapons: @jetfueluser Thanks, As a matter of fact I plan to shoot the LC9 today.
I'll check out the Leather Store
bada61265: I meant to say stock trigger pull not hammer. polishing out the trigger bar
does help smooth things a lot, recommend this even if your leaving it
pablic1979: thats the only thing i hate about my lc9. Actually i despise it. From what
ive heard its part of Rugers infinite safety features. I guess it breaks
far enough to maybe change your mind.
Buzz Clark: Hi Chuck. I just subed. I am really impressed at the results you are having
with the new trigger kit you installed in your Ruger LC9. I am very
interested & may just purchase a kit for myself. Do they have very detailed
instructions?? I have done trigger work on my Glocks & for the improvements
I received I was surprised at how EASY it all was. I am hoping this will be
the case with the LC9 as well. GREAT VIDEO. Thank You & I will keep in
touch. Sincerely, JAMES.
Thomas: mine makes a bing noise when the hammer slams, didnt hear that on yours...
MrPiper199: Nice video. Nice Mod.
mantarayasurf: tulammo is crap ! I tried it once - never again!
fastacker2: Very excellent video. I called Galloway and I have to send my old parts (or
entire gun) to them since they modify your parts. I guess they don't have
the new parts in stock. I definitely want the trigger fixed. Thanks
ForeverLoveisJC: What kind of ammo do you like the best?
Oscar Santi: Thanks Daniel! I wasn't aware of Galloway, I saw there website I was happy
to finally find a solution to this. My gunsmith wouldn't touch it, I will
be sending it to Galloway for the modification, thanks again!
Home Defense Weapons: When I first started shooting I purchased the cheapest ammo I could find, I
purchased many thousands of rounds. Although I can say I never had a
problem with Tula I did have a very dangerous experience with Herter ammo.
Because of that I no longer buy steel cased ammo and only buy reloadable
brass case. Now I went even further and learned to reload. I reload 9mm,
357 Mag, 45. 44 Mag, 223, 7,62x39, 308, 30-30, 35 Remington, and 444
Marlin.. Reloading adds another fun dimension to shooting I enjoy
dog bait: New firing pin spring helped but still light strikes with Berdan Primer
ammo. Box primer ammo is fine. Keep you updated
Home Defense Weapons: I'm glad the video was helpful. Here is some additional information to keep
in mind. The Galloway trigger mod shortens the trigger pill but also the
hammer doesn't get pulled back as far. What this means is that hard
primers, specifically the Berdan primers used on steel case foreign ammo
may not always fire. When using the Galoway trigger use only good quality
brass case ammo that use Boxer primers. Use quality name brand ammo for
self defense EDC.
dog bait: Just shot my LC9 with the modified Galloway trigger and trigger bar. Before
I installed the kit in the pistol, I tested the firing pin using a wooden
dowel rod. It would send the dowel rod 6-8 feet up in the air. After,
installing the Galloway kit, it sent the dowel rod up only a foot or two.
Then took it out to the range where it had 4 out of 6 misfires due to light
strikes on the primer. Emailed Eric Galloway is sending a new firing pin
spring in hopes this will resolve it. Will let you know!
fendermon: I just finished mine. It took a lot of videos like yours to get me
comfortable enough to do it since I had never worked on a gun before. Thank
you so much, and the results are fantastic. I fully agree with bornin59;
people really shouldn't have to do this bs. My advice to those who would do
this is to not get in a hurry and to watch as many videos as possible. Be
especially carefull handeling the smaller hammer roll pin as it is quite
tight and you can't buy a new hammer if it is damaged- Dale
ITHINKUREALESUK: Chuck, thanks for sharing this video.. this is what kept me from selling
mine after the trigger failure ( a common flaw on this gun) I kept it after
ruger fixed it knowing eventually some one would come up with a trigger
kit. Do me a favor and shoot the fire out of it for awhile and do an honest
after video (1000 rnds or more if you can:) ) Also; any other kits you may
find for it. thanks!
RednekDude15: how much and where can I get the parts?
chouston80: Awesome I was so concerned about the trigger on my lc9 being so
uncomfortable but now I know just what to do to fix it. Thanks for posting
Native Texan: What was the cost of the two parts you needed to modify the trigger? Do you
have the website to order? Great video! Thx!!!!
Home Defense Weapons: I just learned about his new trigger bar. I think that work best. All I
want is to move the trigger break forward and shoetening the trigger bar
seems to do that. The problem with the modified hammer was that it didn't
strike with as much force as the original so it had occasional light
strikes on hard steel Berdan primers. I agree with the polishing, makes a
dirtydavy: So does Ruger modify the triggers if you send the pistiol in, or do you
have to send it to Galloway? I would rather a professional do it than
myself. Also, I live in MA. does anyone know if it's legal to send it out
for trigger modification? Thanks.
TheRagin66: Galloway Precision has the whole LC9 Trigger System Upgrade it's includes
hammer pin , new mod hammer and new mod trigger bar ...
Alan Wilson: I screwed mine up so much during the modification, I wound up sending it to
Gallaway to complete the job. I wound up with a stainless steel barrel,
stainless recoil spring, and skeletonized trigger. Shoots like a dream and
looks awesome with the new trigger. Put about 200 rounds so far with nary a
Rykkenn: Also, groups are tighter and muzzle flip very manageable, very noticeable
difference from factory springs.
Home Defense Weapons: Yes, I agree. The Ruger LC9 is one of the best concealed carry guns except
for the damn trigger. Now that I have been carrying for a while I
understand that the long trigger is definitely a safety feature. The
Galloway kit fixes the long trigger pull but also shortens the hammer
travel. The shorter hammer travel deduces striker force which causes
problems if you shoot hard primer ammo like Wolf. It still seems to work
fine with quality American ammo that uses Boxer primers.
Wildcat6mm: Great information you have provided here with your video. Thanks so much
Bradley Chapman: Thanks for the video. Just picked up my new LC9 yesterday. Can't wait to
try it out this weekend. I'm glad you posted this because I had already
been thinking about mods based on conversations with others regarding the
L SCOTT: great mod, great video, i really want this gun just becuase it's really
nice and the rifling allows for greater vilosity, range and energy.
bada61265: I like the new Galloway bar, it does not require the use of their hammer
and results in about the same pull as the previous modified bar and hammer
combo. I did not have quite as much problem as some had with the stock
hammer but at $35 I figured a little improvement at this price was well
worth it, and it definatly was. a great trigger now.
Home Defense Weapons: @ITHINKUREALESUK Sounds like a fun project. I'll do a 1000 round update on
the LC9. I haven't been shooting in almost a month. Can't shoot outside,
too cold for me. My indoor range is a 100 mile round trip.
Mike Donatello: Nice video. I am waiting for Galloway to get the transfer bar/hammer kits
in stock. Original trigger is absolutely terrible.
Home Defense Weapons: @prchico520 Yes, this mod is easy to install and makes the LC9 a kick ass
MYKEB1031: good info
