Franklin Armory® Begins Shipping G-S173 Binary® Trigger and Slide for Glock® 17 Gen 3

MINDEN, Nev. – October 16, 2023 – Franklin Armory®, Inc., one of America’s most innovative manufacturers of firearms, parts, and accessories has begun shipping its first Binary® trigger for a striker fired handgun, the G-S173 for the Glock® 17 Gen 3. Engineered with Franklin Armory’s patented Binary Firing System® (BFS™), G-S173 is the first pull-and-release trigger to provide Glock 17 users with the ability to actively select between regular semiautomatic and Binary® modes and safely cancel the release round.

G-S173 features include:

  • Binary®/Semiautomatic selector paddle
  • Front and rear tritium night sights
  • Optics ready to accommodate multiple adapter plates (sold separately)
  • Semi/Binary® mode indicator on back plate
  • High-tactile front and rear slide serrations
  • Anti-glare slide top stripe serrations

More information about G-S173 can be found in the video: “Franklin Armory® Introduces The New G-S173 Binary® Trigger for Glock® 17 Gen 3.”

In Binary® mode, a single round is fired when the trigger is pulled and a single round is fired when the trigger is released. One of the revered safety features incorporated into all Franklin Armory BFS™ triggers is the ability to cancel the release round. To cancel the release round on G-S173, simply move the selector lever located on the slide from Binary® to the “semi” position before releasing the trigger.

Additional information about how Franklin Armory’s BFS™ works can be viewed in the video: “Why Binary® is Better.”

MSRP for Franklin Armory’s G-S173 Binary® trigger and slide is $899.99.
