ZEV Tech triggers and trigger kits from Omaha Outdoors are among the finest Glock replacement triggers available, easily installed to improve pre-travel, reset, and feel while also looking great. ZEV was the first to market with a replacement Glock trigger and their long experience shows in the quality and performance of their product. With so many options, it’s easy to see why this is the most confusing offering by Zev, and we will demystify the trigger packages.
If you’ve been thinking about how to improve your shooting abilities with a Glock handgun, it’s always a good idea to seek quality training. But everyone can shoot better with an improved trigger, and that’s exactly what ZEV set out to provide with their Fulcrum and Pro Fulcrum triggers and kits. The Pro Fulcrum is non-adjustable for duty use where adjustments aren’t necessary or desired, and the standard Fulcrum allows competition shooters to fine-tune their pistol for maximum performance when a hundredth of a second is the difference between a huge prize and going home empty handed. While you might think Pro means a higher level model than others based on the name, in this case, Pro is the basic version meant for professionals who carry guns for a living.
Both models of Fulcrum trigger improve on the original by reducing pre-travel and over-travel, meaning a shorter pull and a shorter reset. Adjustable versions allow these factors to be tuned. A wider trigger safety and a flatter trigger face ensure consistent and optimal finger position on the trigger for increased accuracy.
Installation is a breeze with only a single tool, a 3/32” punch, and ten to fifteen minutes of your time required to breathe new life into your Glock pistol and transform the look and feel of the trigger.
The trigger packages are as follows:
There’s the Fulcrum Trigger Bar which includes ZEV’s trigger bar and their Fulcrum trigger and safety available in the following colors: black/black, black/red, black/silver, silver/silver as used in our Tiffany Blue ZEV pistols, and now our Omaha Outdoors exclusive black/gold. This drops in using your existing springs, connector, and so on.
Next, the Standard Trigger Bar with Zev Tech’s trigger bar, an OEM Glock trigger pad, and ZEV’s safety.
For those looking for a major upgrade, there’s the Fulcrum Drop-In Kit which includes the ZEV Trigger Bar with attached trigger in your choice of colors, 2 lb and 3 lb Striker Springs, a Stainless Steel Firing Pin Safety, a Firing Pin Safety Spring, two adjustment wrenches, an OEM Ejector Housing, a ZEV V4 Race Connector, a ZEV Trigger Spring, and finally a manual to help you put it all together.
Finally, there’s the Fulcrum Ultimate which includes everything in the Drop-In Kit along with a ZEV Skeletonized Striker, also referred to by some as the firing pin.
ZEV Tech AR-15 Triggers from Omaha Outdoors come with all Primary Weapons Systems rifles but are equally at home in your own AR, too. The Single Stage Rifle (SSR) trigger from ZEV has a unique look and offers unique performance with adjustability to suit almost any shooting style. Normally, adjustable triggers come with concerns about the adjustment mechanisms failing or coming loose, necessitating Loctite or other solutions. With the ZEV SSR, detents hold all adjustments in place, greatly reducing concerns about premature failure.
It wouldn’t be a ZEV product if it didn’t look good, and there’s no denying that the SSR sets itself apart from other triggers in terms of appearance. With a PVD TiCN finish that gives a copper like appearance and ZEV’s double slash logo in the middle of the trigger itself, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the SSR is all show and no go. Instead, with engagement, overtravel, and reset adjustable using detent retained screws along with pull weight via a hammer spring swap, the SSR is among the best triggers on the market in terms of end user adjustability.
Trigger pull weight is something people on the internet love to argue over, and that means potential buyers are likely to agonize over whether to go with a heavier or lighter trigger after reading dozens of comments on a years-old forum thread. With the SSR, that worry is misplaced. Shipping with two hammer springs a giving 5-5.5lb or 3-3.5lb trigger pull weight, you will be able to make your AR shoot exactly the way you require based on your level of skill and experience along with your intended use of the rifle.
