Suarez International Releases "Flat & Straight" Trigger for Glocks

Suarez International has released a flat trigger for the Glock handgun platform. While not the first flat trigger to the market (that honor belongs to Salient Arms), the trigger is a solid offering starting at $150 retail and includes models for common Gen 1-4 handguns and a model for single-stacks including the G36, G42, and G43.

The trigger system claims to have minimal creep and almost-zero over-travel, but does not look to have adjustment to fine-tune, so the shooter will have to keep the stock travel.

Full Description from One Source Tactical (which has the triggers on sale for $100 each) below. Full drop-in kits are available starting at $125.


The Tactical Grade “Flat Faced” Trigger closely replicates the feel of a 1911 trigger, yet maintains the safety features of the original Glock trigger system. Tens of thousands of rounds have been fired in the development of our Tactical Grade Glock Trigger to insure reliability, consistency, and safety, as well as uniformity of weight. You will immediately notice the difference in your shooting performance after installation.

The trigger face is totally and geometrically flat: Look at all the match rifles used to set combat rifle marksmanship records. They all use flat triggers. Flat triggers are totally flat and straight, not just “square faced” curved triggers. “Flat and straight” triggers improve your mechanical leverage and allow you to consistently place your shooting finger in the most advantageous location for you. Additionally, these triggers maintain a more consistent feeling trigger regardless of where on that trigger your finger is placed.

The trigger safety is much wider than an OEM unit, allowing you to quickly place your finger in the optimal firing position via a tactile index and thus build improved consistency and accuracy via smooth operation through the entire length of pull. Imperceptible pre-travel and crisp reset improves the shooter’s ability to place follow up shots with speed and accuracy.

If YOU were the guy at the next Sandy Hook, or Mumbai…you would want a 100% reliable handgun with a capability for extreme surgical accuracy equal to the moment. The goal: To save innocent lives by being able to put one bullet in a terrorist’s eye socket from across the room, in his face from across the street, or in his chest from down the block. That is what this trigger was designed for.

    So many people around here content with mediocrity... Amazing. $150 is too much for a trigger but you'll probably run out and buy the next cool gun you like to sit in your safe instead of making your carry gun more effective.

    Nathan, get your hands on one to review and you will be very impressed.

      @dannye No one was summoned. I saw this in my email. I work for SI. Not hiding or playing stupid games.

    It's a high quality trigger. I've installed three of them on my pistols and I'm very satisfied. I am a Staff Intructor for SI as well as a full time peace officer.
