I have a 452V and a 455 American that I have installed Rifle Basix triggers in. Money well spent, so when I traded a Glock for a 452American, I ordered another. I'll install it this weekend.

I hope you get it figured out with several solutions mentioned. Sorry you have to resolve a terrible creep issue. I assume it is a NEW 452 American??

I lucked out 10 years ago with a no creep trigger to begin with. Good luck.

Back to bench testing today and the YoDave kit was a massive success. There's still a tiny bit of creep which I'm quite OK with. I might put in the next lighter spring or maybe I'll save it for my 455. Interestingly, the gritty portion of the trigger pull is completely gone. I forgot to mention that I very carefully touched up the trigger sear interface with an ultrafine file. I just can't remember where I put my fathers set of gunsmith stones. So I don't really know if the grittiness was eliminated by the YoDave kit, the file or from firing it a couple hundred times.

I bought the 452 used although it doesn't appear to have been fired much. The original owner probably got rid of it because of the awful trigger.
