Is it installing a lighter connector?

What did you do to improve it?

Since I've started shooting 1911's my Glock's trigger is sadly lacking so I', looking for any ideas to improve it. I have the eight pound connector in it now and I'm no longer happy with it.

The best way of improving a Glock's trigger pull is to buy a 1911. :wink:

Or.....you can go with a lighter connector/trigger spring set-up.

I am not necessarily recommending this practice, but I have also cut a coil or two off of the factory striker spring. NOTE-my Glock is NOT used for anything other than target work. There may be reduced power striker springs in the aftermarket now (Wolff ???)

Matt Kartozian of "Custom Glock Racing" has the best trigger I have ever seen on a Glock - breaking at a pound and a half. This is a really slick setup, and he can do it to any Glock sent to him for work. (Sorry - I couldn't get the link to work.)

I know that Wolff sells reduced power striker springs, and Lightning Strike markets a titanium striker that is supposed to be a great help in slicking up a Glock trigger and improving lock time.

I recently put an old 5 lb connector in my 1st generation Model 17, and did some polishing here and there, and the trigger breaks at about 3.5 lbs. It works great as a game gun, and it has all stock parts and springs, and I have not clipped any coils on any springs.

Well today before my range visit I changed out the connector for a Lightning Strike 3.5#. Before I did so my trigger broke at 7.5#, now it's @ 4#. Groups became noticeably tighter.

Thanks for the advice.

i like the stock trigger for most work, but prefer NY1 spring and 3.5 connector for carry...makes the break more of a surprise, and I find that my front sight no longer shifts when i dry fire.

I have custom glock trigger packages,
1 for carry & 1 for competition.there's
the specs on the comp. Tom Novak

* Alum trigger
* 1/8th inch take up
* 1.7 to 2.0 break
* Zero over travle

The carry is the same but with a
4.0 to 5.5 break.

The recent Glock annual mentioned that the 3.5# connector only comes on certain models, and it is NOT sold by them as a replacement part. FWIW, installation of an aftermarket part is cause for voiding the warranty, if that matters to anyone.:grin:

In the Glock armorers course, they actually recommend the 3.5 connector with 8lb spring as a trigger mod, and it makes a difference.
Then they tell you you can't buy the connector :smile:

Well I guess we should not tell Glock that the 10 replacement connectors I purchased for my model 24 with serial# enclosed on the order form from my dealer did not all "break or wear out"?
The 3.5lb connector with the green NY-1 trigger spring and a lightining strike titanium striker is my preferred trigger package.
Very crisp @ 4.0 lbs, smooth, and accurate, I really prefer the heavier trigger spring as I like to ride the trigger into reset as the slide cycles.

Had Teddy Jacobson do the 34 I use for IDPA SSP. Added only a Wolff 4 lb. striker spring. Don't like the mushy feel of the OEM 3.5 connector so use OEM 5 lb. one. No Ti parts. Can keep splits to .10 sec. or a little under which is faster than the Brain can follow. The 21 I use in CDP {for fun} has JP Enterprises Trigger Job on it with no 4 lb. Wolff spring {tried it but too light for own tastes}. Of the two this is the one I pefer for CCW {21 is most often carried Glock for CCW}. It does have a distinct SA feel {given it's a Glock!} that find I really like. Between the two if done over again would probably stick with the JP trigger.
