LW connector
 
Hey JR, I have a gen 4 17 and a new LW connector with the slick finish and it will not work in the gun, I have not tried it in any of the gen3 yet but here is my question, what is the difference in the connectors, what makes them 3.5 or 5.5 is it thickness,length or what? just curious. Thanks Terry

Sorry to learn the connector is failing in your Gen4. I would like to see this myself? Any chance I can get you to mail it back to me? I need to figure out what the heck happened? FYI: I have not heard of any issues with Gen3 pistols. This is the first failure I have heard of with the Gen4. Are you sure the connector was completely seated in the trigger housing?
The difference between the 3.5 and 5 lb connectors is the angle of the raised angled edge. Thickness is not a factor.

I think it somehow got bent as it set to far in the frame, I installed it a second time and pulled it out away from the trgger housing (not the frame) and it works fine. I will keep a close watch on it if I have any more trouble with it I'll send it back. Thanks for the reply....................

You want to make sure the connector leg is properly seated in the trigger housing. If the connector was bent inward you will be able to correct the angle by placing it upside down on a hard surface and tapping on the angle. This will open it up and create more pressure on the slide
