Installing a Smooth Trigger on a Glock 36

If you are an owner of a Glock 36 you probably already know that you cannot buy a smooth trigger for it.
I removed mine and reduced the serrations to improve it but it is still not what it could be.
I was perusing a different forum and came across a post by Glock17L on Glocktalk describing how to solve this problem.
I believe the correct size pin punch is a 3/32.

Here is his elegant solution to the problem.

You can get any smoothed face G17/G22 trigger bar & transplant that trigger face onto your G36 trigger bar by driving the stainless pin through the RH side & reinstall afterward.
You can even fill the micro hole with JB Weld, epoxy, or just leave it..
I took a couple pictures of one I did..

For those of you who are wondering why we care about this.

It takes away the multiple contact points on your finger.
The abrasion is reduced, and allows your finger to roll across the trigger better.
It makes it feel wider so the trigger feels lighter.

I'm hoping to try out the G36 trigger before my husband replaces it so I can compare the difference for the reviews I want to write. C'mon already kiddo!!!

I've always liked the feel of a smooth faced trigger over the target one that Glock puts on all the compacts & sub compacts & this face swap is the only way to go on the G36..
It's easy enough to just put a trigger bar into the double stacks from their parent model pistols such as the Glock 17s that I put into my Glock 26..
The one shown that Frost posted is in my Long Slide as I wanted the unaltered part in my carry gun even though the modified one has worked 100% for thousands of rounds..
We found if you warm the trigger bar first It makes the plastic get a bit softer, I used a hair dryer, & then put the side of the trigger over a board with a hole drilled in it & used a solid 3/32" punch to drive the stainless pin threw the polymer trigger, after the swap I filled it with JB Weld.
It's really easy to do..
