I recently got a hold of a custom G19 and was asked to replace the stock trigger with something I could write about. I liked this option as the crew here thought it would be better to let me decide what I wanted vs. just throwing in something I might not like. This then is the story of how I decided on an Overwatch Precision Glock trigger: specifically the Overwatch Precision Falx Trigger.
Since this was a Glock, I of course went to “my boy, AT” who is an aficionado on all things Glock. (If you do not follow “ambrosia_terrebonne” on Instagram, you are missing out on some fun!)So, “AT” gave me a few trigger manufacturers to consider, and after some quick research, I settled on Overwatch Precision. I liked what they were all about, high-quality materials, a lifetime warranty, and their products are used by military and police departments. I called them up and spoke with Jerry Cimino, the president of the company. He took the time to ask me some questions to make sure I was ordering the correct trigger. He suggested the Falx for my G19 and sent it out that day.
Jerry got it absolutely right, I really like this trigger, the Falx was designed with performance advantages of the flat-faced trigger they sell, but suits shooters like myself who prefer a curved face trigger.
The Falx trigger is a drop-in replacement for any Glock Gen. 1-5 stock trigger. It also fits the litany of Glock clones out there. This includes models for Glock’s double stack handguns as well as single stack models like the Glock 42 and 43. The Falx’s trigger shoe and safety is made of 7075 series aluminum and is fixed to the coated trigger bar with stainless steel coil spring pins. The shoe and safety have a hard anodized finish. The shoe comes in a black, gunmetal gray, or FDE finish, while the safety varies from black to gold to red to blue.
It was obviously an easy install and one we did at the range. My first time using this trigger was in a defensive handgun class over two days, and man was I happy with it, I really like the way this trigger resets, it just has a great feel to it. Over the stock trigger, the Falx has a noticeably shorter take up between shots and the mating surfaces of the trigger safety and shoe are deburred, eliminating the sore spot on the trigger finger that you would normally get after a long range session. I could go on and on about this and that, but we all know you have to get out and try different parts to find what suits you best. I just got lucky right off the bat with this trigger and wanted to share it with you.
