Zev Technologies Fulcrum Trigger Review: Best Glock Trigger?

Zev Technologies Fulcrum Trigger Review

Buy For Gen 3 Glock

Buy For Gen 4 Glock
If you&#;re like me and own a Glock pistol, you may love everything about your gun except for two main things; the trigger and the sites.

When I first purchased my Glock 19 Gen 4, I was conflicted as to whether or not I should change the trigger to make it smoother and lighter.

On one hand I completely believe in Glock’s reliability and know that they wouldn&#;t put a trigger in their firearms that would compromise the gun or how it operates. However, on the other hand I really like the feel of a smooth crisp light trigger.

In my quest to find the best Glock trigger I began testing a few different trigger connectors. None of which seemed to meet my needs.

Until I tried the Zev Tech Trigger&#;..

 

The Best Glock Trigger

I needed a trigger that could be light when I was at the range and a trigger that could be at the factory weight when I conceal carry. Then I stumbled upon the Zev Tech Fulcrum Trigger.

After spending 90 days with the ZevTech Fulcrum Trigger I decided that it was time to write a review.

So here is my 90 day review of the Zev Fulcrum Trigger.

What&#;s In The Box

  1. Full drop-in in trigger assembly
  2. 2. Stainless steel Striker
  3. 3. 3 pound spring and a 2-pound spring    &#;&#;&#;&#;..Firing pin not included

Design

The Zev Fulcrum Trigger is beautifully designed from an aesthetics perspective. You can choose different colors for the trigger safety such as red and black. Personally I prefer the black trigger with the red safety.

The trigger shoe is made out of a high quality aluminum vs Glock’s standard trigger shoe being made of polymer. This will help add more rigidity to the trigger itself. The trigger bar and Trigger connector come beautifully polished from Zev Technologies.

All of the components of this kit are made with the highest quality stainless steel and aluminum. In all the stainless steel is highly polished to a mirror finish.

 

Installation

Installing the Zev Fulcrum Technologies Trigger is actually quite simply all you need to do is remove the 3 pins from the frame of the firearm and drop the trigger in the frame and then re-insert all of your pins.

However, installing the striker spring and safety plunger could be a bit challenging for those of us who haven&#;t had to disassemble our slide before. Nevertheless if you can take a Glock apart these parts are quite simple to install.

 

Adjustability

The adjustments are easily made with two different set screws one for pre-travel and one for over travel.

Please watch the video below to learn how to adjust the Zev Technologies trigger.

 

Performance

The first time I went to the range with the Zev Technologies trigger installed on my Glock 19 I actually had worse groups than with the factory trigger.

It wasn&#;t because the trigger was a bad trigger but because I was so used to hitting the triggers wall with the factory Glock trigger.

This caused men to pull the Zev trigger too hard. However after a couple of magazines I was able to find the sweet spot in my trigger pull to match the pull weight of the Zev Technologies trigger.

After that I was able to get much tighter groups than I was able to achieve with the Glock Factory trigger. In addition to tighter groups I was able to shoot a lot faster than I was with the Glock Factory trigger.

 

Reliability

In the 90 days that I spent with this trigger I have put thousands of rounds through it and have yet to have a malfunction caused by or related to the trigger.

As long as you&#;re cleaning your firearm as you would a stock Glock, you won&#;t have any issues with this trigger.

Whenever you&#;re ready to go to the range just throw the two-pound spring in the slide and when you&#;re ready for concealed carry just throw the three-pound spring in and you&#;re ready to rock and roll.

 

Price

I know that spending $ on a trigger for a $ gun seems kind of ludicrous but hear me out. If the trigger is able to make you shoot faster and more accurately then I feel that it&#;s worth the investment.

God forbid that you&#;re ever in a self-defense situation but if you are you can be rest assured that your bullets will land where you want them to be. If you want to try a much cheaper option then you could always try one of the Ghost Connectors or even the Apex Triggers.

 

Conclusion

Although pricey the Zev Technologies Fulcrum Trigger is the best Glock trigger available right now. It will make you a more accurate and faster shooter if you already have the basic fundamentals down pat.

However this trigger will not improve your shot placement or speed if you haven&#;t mastered the basics of operating a pistol.

But if you have the extra money and are concerned about always being accurate and fast then this is the trigger for you.

Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn&#;t come from a store.

 &#; Dr. Seuss

I recently picked up the ZEV Technologies Adjustable Fulcrum drop-in trigger kit for my Glock 17 Gen 4. I purchased it on sale from Optics Planet for about $ and even got a free $25 gift card with it. It&#;s not a cheap kit, normally retailing for around $, and it&#;s not even ZEV&#;s most expensive kit. Their  &#;Ultimate&#; kit retails closer to $ and includes a modified firing pin. I hadn&#;t been willing to take a chance on this kit before, but between the sale and the gift card I thought it was worth a try. As with many of these types of upgrades, functionality is my greatest concern. Increasing the monetary value of the firearm though is also an important consideration. When I make in investment like this it&#;s my hope that I can recoup some of that investment if and when I sell the firearm. Hopefully though, making an upgrade (presumably) like this will not only increase my effectiveness but also my enjoyment using that firearm. This is certainly my hope with my Glock.

The kit comes extremely well packaged and includes all of the following:

  • Polished Steel Trigger Bar
  • ZEV Trigger Pad (Black):
    • Aircraft Grade T6 Aluminum Hard Anodized Type III
  • ZEV Trigger Safety (Red):
    • Aircraft Grade T6 Aluminum Hard Anodized Type III
  • ZEV Trigger Safety Spring
  • Ejector Housing
  • ZEV Race Connector
  • ZEV Trigger Spring
  • ZEV 2lb Striker Spring, ZEV 3lb Striker Spring
  • ZEV Stainless Steel Firing Pin Safety
  • ZEV Firing Pin Safety Spring
  • 2 Adjustment Wrenches
  • Manual

From the ZEV Technologies website the kit provides the following enhancements:

  • The trigger face is flatter and the trigger safety is three times wider than a stock trigger; this is ideal for quickly placing your finger in the optimal firing position. This will help build proper muscle memory for improved consistency and accuracy.
  • Because of ZEV&#;s proprietary trigger bar refinements the trigger operates smoothly through the entire length of pull.
  • The trigger&#;s crisp tactile reset gives the user a clear feeling for the moment of reset. This feedback improves the user&#;s ability to ride the reset to improve follow up shot speed and placement.
  • The trigger weight can be adjusted to as low as 3 lbs. A lighter pull weight requires less pressure, reducing trigger fatigue and improving accuracy.
  • The pre-travel and over-travel are adjustable to allow for a shorter pull, crisper break and faster reset.

The kit is very easy to install and there are quite a few videos on how to do it. Once again, one of the best and easiest to follow is done by sootch00 and can be found here. His video is for the ZEV &#;Ultimate&#; kit so it includes the installation of a new firing pin as well. This was my  first time breaking down my Glock&#;s fire control mechanism and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is was to remove. As advertised, the ZEV kit just drops right in and is ready to go out of the box.

For my initial installation I used the 3lb striker spring. My understanding is that the 2lb striker spring may cause light primer strikes and should only be used with an after-market extended or lighter firing pin. I intend to test this when time allows. I also have not at this time installed the included ZEV Race Connector but I will speak more about that later.

So what are my impressions? I said in Part 1 of this review that I felt like the stock trigger in the Glock 17 Gen 4 was pretty good overall. It has a reasonable amount of take up, a fairly distinct wall and a tolerable amount of creep before breaking. The ZEV trigger kit simply improves every aspect of the stock trigger. It&#;s setup right out of the box also reduces the trigger pull by about a half pound or so averaging around 5 and a quarter pounds. Not a tremendous reduction but the difference can be felt.  For those of you who want to preserve the Glocks &#;duty&#; trigger feel, you will be pleased. All in all, the ZEV Drop-In Trigger Kit simply does everything better.

Check out these two videos below for a visual comparison:

The videos do a pretty good job demonstrating the primary differences: shorter take-up and a shorter reset. As dramatic as these differences appear to be in the video though, the ZEV trigger doesn&#;t feel like a revolutionary experience. It simply feels like the stock trigger improved. I don&#;t say that as a slight necessarily. If you like the OEM glock trigger then you&#;re going to like the ZEV trigger kit. The take-up appears to have been reduced by a third or more, and the reset is probably about half as long. Those are some significant differences and to some shooters, likely more skilled than shooters than me, those differences are even more meaningful.

So does this improved trigger make me a better shooter? Does this improved trigger help me overcome my particular problems with the Glock? Unfortunately the answers to these questions are the same: nope and nope. Am I disappointed? Slightly. Am I surprised? Not at all. The truth is that my issues with the Glock are not about the pistol itself. It&#;s true that I have other pistols that I don&#;t exhibit the same bad tendencies as I do with the Glock, but I have seen these bad habits pop up often enough with a multitude of different handguns to know that they are MY issues, not the handguns. My first day out with the the ZEV trigger installed and my tendency to shoot low and left with the Glock manifested itself as usual. This new trigger wasn&#;t going to solve my problems for me. The solution? Get back to basics. I loaded a couple of magazines with a mix of live rounds and snap caps and sure enough I was exhibiting a flinch. Good reminder that these types of issues can creep back up if your fundamentals aren&#;t reinforced on a regular basis. My next magazine grouped much better and although they were still slightly left of center, they were not low. In fact, it was one of my best groups ever with the Glock. I suspect that the ZEV trigger will give me a higher ceiling shooting with this gun, and having shot it a few more times since, I&#;m finding I like it more and more.

There are a couple more modifications included in the ZEV kit that may have an even more dramatic effect on the triggers function and feel. I am torn however about modifying the trigger any further. I like the &#;Duty&#; feel of the trigger. It&#;s a trigger with great tactile feedback and gives you the confidence it will fire exactly when you want it to. Nevertheless my curiosity is such that I&#;ve got to see everything this kit is capable of. The ZEV V4 Race connector implies a dramatic improvement in the trigger pull that I&#;d like to try out. ZEV goes as far as making a disclaimer regarding the connector:

&#;ZEV Technologies recommends using a ZEV V4 Race connector for COMPETITION USE ONLY. The ZEV connector will provide for a lighter and shorter trigger pull and improved trigger reset for competitive shooting ONLY. A heavier trigger pull, associated with the factory connector is appropriate for everyday carry or home defense.&#;

If that disclaimer doesn&#;t tempt my curiosity I don&#;t know what will. I&#;ll likely write up a short part 3 of this review after I try it out. I may also experiment with the lighter striker spring and see just what performance and more importantly, reliability, I can get out of it. Will let you know. In closing, I would say the ZEV trigger kit is a noticeable upgrade. Whether that upgrade is worth the money is a difficult question to answer and I suspect will vary from person to person. The trigger has continued to grow on me though and with each outing seems more and more worthwhile.

Most Helpful Negative Review Zev trigger

Glock upgrade newbie review: I like the adjust-ability and the feel of the flat face trigger. The included connector did not work for me, it would not fire with it. I used the stock connector, heavily polished with sand paper and Flitz. It seems very expensive to me for what you get. They should offer more color combination like Pyramid triggers.

Easy install

by Hoss, Verified Owner from FL, United States Written on April 26,

Installed this in my wife&#;s Glock 19 Gen 4 pistol and it couldn&#;t have been easier. Took about a half hour but only because I did a good cleaning of the gun while I had it apart. Took it to the range and my wife couldn&#;t be happier with the trigger. It is very smooth and increased her accuracy.

Excellent trigger replacement

by Mike, Verified Owner from VA, United States Written on January 15,

I purchased this ZEV trigger drop in replacement for my Glock 19 Gen 4. As with most Glock owners the trigger that comes with the Glock are OK but not great. I was looking for a serious upgrade and after reading reviews and watching videos on YouTube I decided on ZEV. The trigger is awesome! Removing the original trigger and dropping in the ZEV took about minutes in my poorly lit basement. The ZEV feels so much better and the trigger pull is fantastic with a short crisp reset. The only struggle I&#;m now having is I now have several more Glock that need upgrades. I haven&#;t decided which trigger spring will be the final spring but both come with the ZEV and are excellent. I highly recommend this quality trigger.

Pros:
  • ease in installation
  • Great fit

Would recommend: Yes

Single Best Upgrade I&#;ve Made for 3Gun

by Straight Shooter, from NY, United States Written on March 1,

My accuracy improved big time. The wide trigger pad enables consistent finger placement, and square trigger press, super clean break, makes for excellent follow through. I tested the trigger and it&#;s breaking at lbs. Excellent reset and super clean break, it&#;s AWESOME! The settings for pre-travel and over travel out of the box were spot on for my liking. Be careful of reducing too much pre-travel which defeats the safety. You will notice the safety does not extend out from the trigger pad if you&#;ve gone too far. I purchased this for my G17 for 3 gun. I would like to shoot USPSA production, but will have to get their standard version with the polymer trigger pad for that. This completely changed my gun, and was the single best upgrade I&#;ve made. Simply awesome.

Cons:
  • Can&#;t Use it In USPSA Production Divison

Would recommend: Yes
