    So I have my Gen 4 (26) taken apart and when dropping the NY1 spring in, it doesn't snap in place like the one in my Gen 3 (22) did. It just sits in there and if you turn it over, the spring falls out. I have two of the springs and the other one is the same way so it's not the spring. Are the Gen 4 guns different in this area? I didn't see anything specific for a Gen NY1 trigger. Thanks,

    Mike

    lol....nevermind. I guess it stays in place after reconnecting the trigger draw bar and dropping it back into the frame. This could also be the reason for having to pull the trigger again while removing the slide since it doesn't seem to seat quite as well as it does on (my) Gen 3.

    Edit: Derp, didn't read both your posts. When you reconnected the trigger bar it probably just pushed the spring down far enough to have that little tab hook onto the trigger housing.

    I don't have much experience with the NY springs, but I did just complete the Armorer's Course and we got to install the NY springs. The particular gun I got to work with was a gen 3, so I'm not 100% sure the gen 4 will yield the same results but...

    If you look at the back end of the trigger housing, the NY spring should have a little tab that "hooks" onto the trigger housing which kinda locks it in place.

    Yep. the little hook part went under that tab without a problem.... I just didn't get a click like I did when I installed one in my gen 3. Since the crucifix part holds it in place it wasn't that big of a deal. Seems to work fine after getting it all back together. Thanks for the reply though :)

    You do, usually, have to keep the trigger pulled, to get the slide off, when using the NY spring.
