Only tried the stock 5.5, scherer 3.5 and the ghost ultimate 3.5, but the ghost definitely feels the best to me.
However, I'm going to stick with the factory 5.5 for liability issues. I shoot fine with the stock one and personally I worry about any possible complications a lighter trigger might have in either a criminal or civil case. I know that it's not illegal, but I think we all know that a good prosecutor can turn words around, espceially Glock recommends against them in anything other than a competition setup. When I get a G34, I'll put the Ghost Ultimate or Ghost Rocket in it. I tried the Ghost 3.5 with the NY1 and don't have any concerns with that setup, but I actually think I like the way the factory 5.5 feels more.
Like they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

A good shoot is a good shoot.

I'm more concerned with civil than criminal (isn't it a shame that the legal system has come to that?) because I don't believe it has any basis whatsoever in a criminal case - if I pointed the weapon and had my finger on the trigger, I intended to pull the trigger. I've got Castle Doctrine to take care of me at home, but if some smooth-talking prosecutor can put even the slightest doubt that I'm some gung-ho gun freak into the jury's head, it COULD spell trouble. Not saying it would, and the only time I can even see it being a possibility is if there are other mitigating factors because like you said, a good shoot is a good shoot. But just because I'm innocent in a criminal case (or never even had charges filed) does not mean I will be found innocent in a civil case. If you have a jury of "peers" who have never held any kind of weapon and think every AK or M16-style weapon is a "machine gun", there is no telling what they can be convinced of. "Are you a trained Glock armoror?", "The manufacturer will not make that modification to a self-defense weapon - what makes you believe you should?"...great. I don't know how many of you have ever been on the witness stand, but even as a victim, let me tell you - it's no fun and even a public defender WILL do everything possible to get his client off. Even in an "open-and-shut" case, they can find a way to instill doubt. They can make a statement that is not relevant and even if it is later proven to be false, it can raise other questions or doubts - that's just the way some human minds work.
Sorry - wasn't trying to hijack the thread.
I have the ghost rocket 3.5 with spring kit in my g22 which I mostly use for comp. I have the glock 3.5 in my g27 and think I prefer it compared to others. I am contemplateing getting a glock 3.5 for my 22.
stock 5.5 for my G17 for now. I'm shooting ok with it and I'm learning to drive the gun better with each shot I take. when my performance levels off I'll look into a lighter connector.
