Glock 21 Overwatch Precision Trigger

Overwatch Precision TAC Trigger for .45 ACP, 10mm Auto Up to $12.15 Off  w/ Free Shipping  — 12 models

There are tons of trigger upgrades for 9mm and 40mm Glocks, but not many for Glock 21 45 ACP. The Overwatch Precision TAC Glock 21 trigger is the best for the 45 ACP large frame Glocks. 

Users can expect a lighter trigger pull, thanks to the trigger pull weight reduction of one half to one full pound. Overall this trigger results in a crisp, clean break, and reduced trigger over-travel.

TAC Trigger is a flat-faced, direct drop-in design replacement for your OEM trigger. This is one of the best trigger upgrades for Glocks on the market.

Glock 21 Extended Slide Release

The OEM Glock 21 slide release works fine, but it's much harder to operate when wearing gloves.

A slide magazine release is highly recommended for faster reload and easy slide operation:

Glock 21 Barrel

TRYBE Defense Grade Threaded Pistol Barrel, Glock 21, .578x28 Thread, Black Nitride, TPBG21-BN

Most aftermarket Glock 21 barrel can shoot lead bullets. Factory Glock barrel with polygonal rifling can't, and it could cause lead build up, which can cause safety issues.

However, most people shoot factory brass ammo anyway, so the barrel rifling isn't really a big concern if you use standard factory ammo.

We recommend the TYBRE Defense Glock 21 threaded barrel or Lone Wolf Arms Glock 21 threaded barrel

For the most part, people shoot factory brass ammo anyway, so the barrel rifling isn't really a big concern.

However, for better color customization, a threaded barrel is the way to go.

  • Add suppressor
  • Compensator
