Chuck23250: 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 big difference..
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 stock.
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.
Chuck23250: 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.
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.
Chuck23250: 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.
TaylorGuitars4Life: 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 trigger pull.
Stephen Daniel: No problem. I just ordered a new trigger the other day. I went with the rtk short stroke. I'm also installing lighter springs. It really is a great gun. I have no other problems with ammo. It was just the box of Remington. The pmc shot great!
Chuck23250: 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
Stephen Daniel: So funny, I was just running Remmington's through mine and every now and again no bang. Must be the ammo. I freaking LOVE my lc9.
Chuck23250: 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
mantarayasurf: tulammo is crap ! I tried it once - never again!
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
sjagain: Excellent video. The reset is nice too!
Zilnich P.: Exactly what i was wondering,thanks.
AmericanMade72: Finally! A solution!
Chuck23250: I like American Eagle for practice and Federal Hydra Shok and Federal HST for defense
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!
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.
dogbait07: 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.
Mike Donatello: Nice video. I am waiting for Galloway to get the transfer bar/hammer kits in stock. Original trigger is absolutely terrible.
dogbait07: New firing pin spring helped but still light strikes with Berdan Primer ammo. Box primer ammo is fine. Keep you updated
dogbait07: 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!
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.
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.
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 this vid
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.
TheRagin66: Galloway Precision has the whole LC9 Trigger System Upgrade it's includes hammer pin , new mod hammer and new mod trigger bar ...
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.
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
bornin59: I wish Ruger would just fix the LC9 long trigger pull problem so people would not have to start gun smithing on a newly purchased gun from them or spend additional money and incur additional waiting time to let someone else correct their engineering. I will not buy a LC9 until RUGER corrects this.
MYKEB1031: good info
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.
MrBigike76: Thanks. Informative video. May keep mine yet.
fiercekrypton: mine makes a bing noise when the hammer slams, didnt hear that on yours... thoughts?
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!!!!
Rykkenn: Also, groups are tighter and muzzle flip very manageable, very noticeable difference from factory springs.
Rykkenn: Got my trigger bar and hammer back from GP, installed it and range tested. Perfect, it operates flawlessly. Now I really love my LC9. Galloway Precision work is excellent and I recommend these mods if you want to improve your trigger length of pull. Also put the 20 lb spring and stainless guide rod, awesome!
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 failure.
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.
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
RednekDude15: how much and where can I get the parts?
Chuck23250: 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.
MrPiper199: Nice video. Nice Mod.
Chuck23250: Thank you, I need to do an update video after shooting 1000 rounds with the improved trigger. That will be coming soon.
Wildcat6mm: Great information you have provided here with your video. Thanks so much for sharing.
Chuck23250: Thanks, As a matter of fact I plan to shoot the LC9 today. I'll check out the Leather Store
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.
Chuck23250: 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.
