    G 17 trigger issues

    Ok my 17 has me stumped. It is stock with a polished trigger job. I can dry fire it and at first it is a good feeling 5-6 lb trigger. After I reset and dry fire around 30 times breaking thru the wall seems to get to be horrible. I do not own a trigger pull gauge but the amount of resistance to get thru the wall at least doubles in my mind. Have had friends try with same results. Can not think what is causing it. Have swapped the connector with a minus one and same results. Actually the dot connector feels crisper than the minus. I did order a replacement ejector and it is on the way. What the heck am I missing and if the ejector does not fix it guess it goes to Glock?

    thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Do you have an inspection plate for the rear of the slide? I would start there to see if some thing is starting too hang up during die fire.
    I assume there is no foreign material in or around the injector when you inspected it.
    Is the trigger spring kinked, twisted or installed backwards?
    That's were I'd start. Post some pics if you can.

    Have you put the magical one drop of oil on the connector?

    Sorry for slow response, ended up having to work this weekend. A friend who is the armory for his dept stopped by and in 5.322 minutes had it fixed. Gaz you were on the right path and it was the trigger spring. A little coaching from my friend is " anytime anything weird is happening concerning the trigger swap the connector and spring first thing. Thank you for the reply's.

    No big deal and thanks for the update.
    Glad you got it fixed.

    While holding the frame with the right side facing you, the trigger spring should form a downward "S".

    The fact that the OP thought that the ejector would affect trigger pull is alarming!
