After installing the Geissele trigger I noticed that the point at which the trigger and hammer interlock when in the fire position, do not center exactly.
On my installation, the trigger part is offset to the right ( as you look down from the back of the lower unit).
I did not notice if the original trigger was aligned this way.
Mine looks like this where t=trigger and h=hammer.

hhhhttth Not exact but I hope you get the ideal. I see no way to adjust but if you have a Geissele would you look at see if yours is centered.
My installation seems to work but I would like to know for sure if it needs to be centered.
Thanks

Pictures would be very helpful. Are you using the OEM trigger module and are you using the OEM grip screw?

The shiny part in center picture is the hammer and the piece touching it is the trigger after slack has been taken up in the trigger. You can see that it is off center a little bit.

As long as the sear connection is parallel, it's not such a big deal.

I would guess however that the trigger is skewed over to the right on the trigger pivot pin. See if there is room to see it centered through the trigger hole in the lower.

I tried to adjust the trigger to compensate but there is very little adjustment. Do you have the trigger installed and is yours like mine?

Is it the factory trigger module?

I'll check my Geissele trigger in the morning and let you know. From the pic I would say it's OK. As mentioned above, as long as all of the sear is positively engaged and parallel it should be fine. I might add, also, that in the Geissele trigger installation instructions it never mentions to check for that to be centered. But I will let you know and take a picture in the morning if someone else hasn't done it by then.
