    This is a very interesting read. It took using Lone Wolf trigger kit to get a consistent 3.5 lb trigger pull for my EDC G27 and my G22.

    While I avoided going down the path of what it takes to get a 3.5# trigger in the test, I do agree that using a trigger kit will often get the job done. The Lone Wolf kit contains the parts that I think are absolutely critical to a light Glock trigger: the connector and the firing pin spring. The firing pin spring seems to be the point where most of the trigger pull resistance is generated (note that I wrote "seems to be"), and reducing that spring strength probably has more effect than any other single change on the road to a light trigger.

    The trade-off, of course, is the risk of reducing reliability. If you reduce the power that the spring generates to push the firing pin into the primer, you increase the odds that once in a great while the gun won't fire. For those of us who are using Glocks for purposes other than self-defense, it seems that we can accept this slight reduction in reliability.

    I'm glad that companies like Lone Wolf offer kits that do produce the desired effect: a light trigger. I'm sure their packaging has some warning about the light striker spring...it does, right?

    My nephew put the ghost in his. I didn't really like how it felt. It no longer had what I'm going call the staging point to the stop then the crisp snap. it felt more like my LCR revolver. If I'm carful I can stop my LCR before it fires. I kind of felt that with the ghost. I wasn't sure where the stoping point was before the fire.

    My question, do all of the so called 3.5 trigger bars, correction, connectors act this way. I like the stop then the feeling of glass braking but if that glass feel could be a bit lighter I'm all for it. I did not like the way the ghost connector felt and if they all feel like this I don't want to change mine.

    Do you mean "connectors", not "trigger bars"?

    From your description, it sounds like your nephew may have done more to the gun than just install a Ghost connector. Can you confirm that he just installed a connector? And it was the Ghost and not the Ghost Rocket, right?

    My nephew is LEO and they work swing shifts. I'm not sure when he's days or nights. One of those family members I don't see much. I'm afraid of waking him.

    So let me ask this. Will my trigger still have the dominate stopping point then the crisp snap like glass when it fires with less effort to get past the stopping point?

    I wouldn't wake him either!

    If you just change the connector, I doubt that you will feel much other than a reduction in pull, honestly. It is very hard to quantify the subtle things that happen in a Glock trigger pull, but that does not keep the suppliers from making claims. I think that you can rely upon advice from other forum members about what trigger kits they have found to be successful.

    My standard for a crisp break is a 1911 trigger, and that is very hard to achieve with a striker-fired gun like the Glock. There are complete trigger kits that will get you pretty close, but they can include a lot of parts:

    1. "3.5#" connector, polished
    2. trigger bar, polished, possibly with pre-travel reduced by pinning the trigger safety
    3. heavy trigger spring
    4. reduced power firing pin spring
    5. trigger mechanism housing with an over-travel stop built in (or a Ghost Rocket connector that has to be fitted to the gun)
    6. light firing pin safety spring
    7. titanium firing pin safety
    8. titanium striker

    When you combine the effect of some or all of these parts, you can get a very light and often "crisp" trigger. You also get a trigger with reduced safety, because you have reduced trigger pull weight, reduced the effectiveness of the firing pin safety, and you have increased the admittedly slim likelihood of a light primer strike and failure to fire. For "competition guns" this might be acceptable, but for carry guns I would be wary.

    I think I'll stop here and see if this is helping. If I don't stop I will just ramble on and maybe waste your time. If you have questions about the effect of any of the individual parts I have listed, please let me know and I'll do my best to answer.
