Glock Trigger Safety

Siderlock makes another Glock positive external safety. It is a little button on the side of the trigger that prevents the trigger from being pulled to the rear. The button is depressed to the side in order to take the pistol off safe. This is a replacement to the original Glock trigger and does not require any actual physical modification to the weapon; it is a simple replacement of the Glock trigger.

The device is another method of providing a positive physical safety that must be disengaged prior to firing the firearm. The presence of a positive safety on the Glock series of pistols is a feature that I always thought Glock should offer on their own. Glock makes excellent firearms and I think customization to fit the needs of individual officers or agencies is a good idea.

Offices should keep in mind that all firerarms should be treated as if they are loaded at all times. Officers should remember to point the firearm in a safe direction at all times. The trigger finger should generally be places alongside the slide, outside the trigger guard until the officer is on target and ready to fire the weapon. The operator is the most important safety device on any firearm; that’s what the SGT Says.

That external safety for the Glock sounds EXACTLY like a similar one I have on my RAM Walther P99 .43 caliber paintball pistol.

Come to think of it, sounds just like the safety for my pump shotgun (Remington 870 clone)

Seems like a sensible "mod" for the Glock.

Stay safe.

Could be a good choice for those used to a positive safety on their handguns.
