Trigger replacement

Replaced the short reach trigger on my p227 with the standard trigger in less than ten minutes with the help of the nutnfancy utube video what the did not show was how to perform the hardest part, removing the e2 grips. As it turns out the cleaning too that came with it has 4 protrusions on it that are designed to remove the grip. There is a utube video on that too

Or would I be better off to add a Laser on the rail?

Thanks,
I'd like to bump this question as my question is very similar. If my 226 already has the E2 grips, can I just swap out to any grips without replacing anything else but the grips? Thanks.

Yes, a grip swap is pretty much it. You will want to make certain you have the proper length grip screws, too long will interfere with mag operation, too short, well, they won't hold for beans. Also, pay attention to the decocker detail. If you have one on your gun, you will need decocker compatible grips. SAO has it's own grips, DAO/DAK can work with or without the decocker detail.

Thank you so much for that info.

This is where I had the most trouble. I put a short reach trigger in my wife's P229EE last night. It was NOT easy. With the trigger attached to the trigger bar, it was very difficult to remove the trigger/trigger bar, and then VERY difficult to get it back it. I scratched the finish off the side of the trigger getting it back in. I also cannot guarantee that I didn't tweak the trigger bar a little, but it does function OK now.

I tried hammer up, hammer down. It was difficult in every position.

Any insight as to what I was doing wrong?

Mike

I don't have so much insight as sympathy.

Installing the trigger/trigger bar in a P-series pistol is very much like working one of those chinese puzzles. It seems impossible to get the trigger bar into position…until you get it in just the right spot at just the right angle and then zip! it's in there. Each of my p-series models seems to have a slightly different angle that works. I have to keep reminding myself when doing it that "another human being did this before me so I can too".

And there is NO force required to install it. If you are forcing it, then you ain't got it right.

You got the Chinese puzzle thing right. I seriously spent well over an hour trying to finesse the assembly back in there. With the trigger off, it slides right in. Put the trigger on the bar and it suddenly becomes impossible. I used a pick tool to move the trigger over and guide it into the trigger hole. I know I put some torsional force on the trigger bar when I did this. It also took the finish off the outside edge of the trigger as I pushed it down into the hole, but it went. It seems to function OK. It does not feel any different.

I do not want to do that ever again though.
