P238 aftermarket trigger.

I just got a p238 this weekend. I am looking for advice on which metal trigger to get. I'm looking at these two:

http://www.partsproduction.com/Trigger.htm

https://gallowayprecision.com/sig-sauer/p938-p238/crusader-trigger-for-sig-sauer-p938-and-p238-pistols/

Which one would preform the best? I see the Galloway one has a set screw to adjust travel, but I also read where people say that the parts production trigger is very smooth.

Check out Armory Craft too. I haven't tried them yet. Startup by members of another forum and people have really been liking their work.
I have no affiliation with the company at all. Just offering another option.

Glen from partsproduction was very helpful in posting the "proper"way to service the trigger pivot pin. He has been a poster here for years. His trigger is the sauce. Highly recommended! Posted videos on the install too. But use the arbor press to move the pin if at all possible as it is so controllable.

I ended up going with the one from glen.

For the guys that did the installation, did you get the specialty punch from Brownells he recommended or just use a 1/32" nail set punch to get the pin started and a 1/16" to finish?

I already had an arbor press so I bought the replaceable tip punch set from Brownells.

and made a sleeve to center the punch in the press ram receptacle. Link:http://www.partsproduction.com/a1.htm
This is good stuff, and very controllable with almost zero chance of frame damage.

So I received the trigger yesterday, pretty fast service.
I see this one has a set screw, but it seems that it is not adjustable after you install the trigger bar and spring.
How should I test to figure out how much to set it? Is there an easier way besides having to keep reinstalling it?

I would think the only way would be to make a test pivot pin. Neck it down so the pin slips in and out without the press fit. Then install it and look at the gap, remove and adjust and retest. When satisfied you do the permanent install with the factory trigger pin.
I left my trigger as built by Glen and I may tweak it later when I do the next detail strip.
