Lonewolf 3.5# Connectors

I have tested Lonewolf's connectors in two of my Glocks and like them very much. They provide a light, crisp trigger action. My competition Glocks (G19, G26, G38) will keep their factory 3.5# connectors, but all my other Glocks will have Lonewolf connectors. Try one and see for yourself.

question for you. If they are better than OEM connectors, why woudn't you want to use them for comp? I have wanted to try them against a custom fitted Ghost Rocket but just haven't ordered any yet.

Well at least for GSSF, all parts must be Glock parts I think.

Connectors are cheap enough that it never hurts to buy an assortment to find out which one you prefer. You'll usually be able to get most of your money back from selling the connectors you don't want.

All parts must be Glock parts in GSSF Competition, otherwise your pistol must be entered in Masters/Unlimited. My wife shoots the G19 and I use the G26 and G38 in Amateur categories.

I have one Shearer 3 1/2 lbs. As for "all Glock parts" I can't see any difference in markings. It seems crisper than a Glock 3 1/2 lbs. trigger. I think it's a Shearer. I bought it at a gun show and it was stapled to a Shearer paper in a plastic bag.

Scherer's have the letter "S" stamped on the bottom. Lonewolf's look different. Ghost's look different.

Danny...reviving a post.

If you weren't worried about competition regs and wanted the best 3.5 connector for crispness and reliability, which would you choose?
LoneWolf, OEM, or other?
I am an armorer, all I've ever used is the OEM 3.5, but I've heard good things about the LWD product.
Thanks

I am not Danny but in my opinion the answer is Glockworx.

Can you clarify how the connector changes the trigger pull without changing any springs? Is it the thickness of the connector?

I favor the factory "-" connectors for reliability. I've outgrown the need for the world's lightest trigger, and instead practice with a purpose.

I bought the kit today for the 3.5 trigger and installed. The whole kit takes 5 minutes to install and it makes a much better trigger feel. It doesn't change it to a hair trigger as some folks may percieve but just a lighter pull. Will take it out tomorrow and try it out. The complete kit from the Glock Armorer at the gun show today was $60

G19 Lover:

The Connector changes the trigger pull by the angle at which it is cut. As you pull the trigger back, the trigger bar slides against the angled portion of the connector. Depending on the angle of the connector the triggerbar will drop quick with less pressure (2.5lbs-3.0lbs connectors), or drop normally with moderate pressure (5.0 lbs connector) or will need more pressure to drop (8 lbs connector).

Replacement of the trigger S-spring can also aide in the trigger pull (plus or minus). But be very cautious using both, a spring to lessen the trigger pull used in conjunction with a connector to lessen the trigger pull can lead to a very very sensitive trigger which can go off with minimal touch.

I have tested every - connector on the market and have never found one that would drop the standard trigger pull of 5.5# to 2.5# with a connector change alone. A connector change alone will not reduce the trigger pull anywhere near 3#'s.

Lone wolf conector works awesome. I added the Lone wolf #4 striker spring also. The trigger was so light when I went to range I was squeezing the trigger so softly and the gun went off I about crapped myself.

I shoot mine today with the 3.5 connector and replaced the springs they gave me with kit. Shot GREAT! Nice and smooth and crisp!
