Finally got around to bending the connector and it made all the difference in the world. It doesn't feel like it is draging against the frame anymore.
Here's a segment from the Ghost installation instructions describing the correct outward bend for the connector.
Check the outward bend angleof the connector. This is done by sliding a piece of (.003 or standard 20 lb paper) paper between the connector and the top portion of the trigger mechanism housing. The paper should slide through with a little resistance. If the paper does not slide through then the connector needs to removed and bent out ever so slightly. If it slides through with no resistance the connector needs to be removed and bent in ever so slightly.
