    Just installed the Scherer 3.5lb disconnector last night in my Glock 22 to see if it would make a big difference. Not very impressed, my trigger has a huge amount of creep now and doesn't feel much if any lighter than my original oem part from 1993. Before, it had a pretty smooth takeup and decent break. I just was curious if the 3.5 disco would make a huge difference. My question is, does it need to be fired a little to break in, or should I just put in the original disco and be done with my Glock gunsmithing? Thanks, Jared

    Because of the way the "-" connectors work they tend to cause the break to be a bit lest crisp than with the standard connectors.

    All "-" connectors have that feel as well as a softer return. Many competitors have switched back to using the stock connector.

    personally I have found the Lone Wolf geometry to be *the best* with Scherer being #2...

    Lone Wolf is less expensive too.

    Cool, thanks a lot guys. I will go back to the stock disconnector. It was a cheap experiment especially compared to a lot of "experiments" I have tried w/ 1911s. Thank you again. Jared

    Because I shoot GSSF all my Glock's except for the Unlimited G24C have stock Glock '-' connectors and trigger bars that have been polished per the 25 cent trigger job and DVD "Making Glock's Rock". If it is good enough for a Vanek trigger job it is good enough for me.

    Try a 4lb striker spring. It will smooth out the trigger very nice. If you don't like the pull, just switch it back.

    I did this to my G22 1000rd's ago, love it. no problems at all.

    It has been said that a 4 lb striker spring will cause light primer strikes. I have not had that problem. The factory spring 5.5 lbs.

    The spring cost $3.65.

    :cool:

    I have a Gen 2.5 G20C and Gen 3 G22. I've done the 3.5# connector mod on both as well as the 4# Striker spring replacement. It made a huge difference on both.
    I've noticed though that by polishing the rub faces of all the concerned parts you get an even better result. Smooth, crisp release, less take up, and a quicker reset. My G20C is now the most accurate Glock I've ever owned. I just have to figure out how to get my G22 to catch up.

    It's a connector, no DIS in connector. Sorry, but every time I read this it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

    MrVvrroomm, You are correct, I just looked at the package and noted that it is a connector. I know the feeling, stuff like that bugs me all the time, I was thinking of the disconnector on a 1911, I was detail stripping a 1911 and putting another one together while I was writing on this forum. I appreciate the correction, you start thinking of something one way then it becomes reality w/o noticing. Have a great day, and thanks for the advice from everyone, Jared

    I also have LWD Lone Wolf "-" 3.5 Connector & like the way it makes the trigger feel, It's very smooth & breaks fairly crisp..
    Their part is polished & plated & this make be the difference..

    I recently aquired a G27 and performed the same mods to it ( 3.5# connector, 4# trigger spring) using Glockwerx parts. This time I also exchanged the striker spring and the striker safety block spring. I found the results very impressive for trigger reset and consistancy but not real sure what result was accomplished by changing out the striker spring.
    I will post results from the next range visit.
