    For those that have installed the 4.5 lb, or "-" connector in their Gen 4 Glock, is the feel the same as in a Gen 3? Is it any lighter or heavier? Does it feel any more or less crisp?

    Slightly heavier. I prefer the "dot" connector as the reset is more positive.

    The dot connector is what comes standard in the Gen 4 right?

    X2, and yes Dot is standard. However some early Gen4s came with the standard unmarked connector.

    Ok, heres another one. What happens if you drop a dot connector in, for instance, a Gen 3 G26?

    The trigger pull will decrease by 0.5 lbs. So that would make a gen3 trigger pull roughly 5 lbs. I put a dot connector in my G21 gen3 and love it.

    "_" "Std" "."

    The "Dot" will give you about half the drop of a "-" depending on what Gen you use it in.

    That's interesting. Sounds about perfect for a carry gun. I bet it would really smooth out with use too.

    I use the - connector in both my gen 4 G22's & am very happy. I also have them in my gen 3 G17 & G27. Honestly I can't feel any difference between them.
