Glocks are 'perfect out of the box' but for those who like to make it 'more perfect' there are numerous aftermarket suppliers who will create about 'anything' and 'everything' for the Glock enthusiast. I have a Glock armorer's certificate and that and $1.00 will get me a cup of coffee in a local greasy spoon... but it speaks of my enjoyment of firing and maintaining Glocks. I generally work on only one alteration at a time and decided to try Arthur's "new" Ghost EVO Elite 3.5 connector and the suggested 'other' additions (FP Safety spring, trigger spring and FP/striker spring). I removed the old (I have nearly 90K thru this G22, Gen 2) Rocket 3.5 connector... and used the orange armorer's slide cover plate (I've got a lot of them) to facilitate the "necessary" minimal grinding down of 'connector tab' (Ghost supplies pretty exacting instructions but it is in the doing that you get the most out of this) and testing. OF course, the GUN REALLY NEEDS to be UNLOADED for this and I generally don't even have anything 'live' around while working. I began with a variable speed Dremel and took extremely small bites out of the 'tab' with a barrel grinder and not a cutter! The amount off is hard to 'just measure' and so I do it by 'trigger function' (not enough off and the trigger will not drop the bar and so there is a need to manual depress it and file a little more off). I did that process until I could HARDILY squeeze the trigger and 'view' the bar 'almost' dropping. I then went to jeweler's files and took a counted (ten slow passes with the file) amount off, re-assembled and tried to fire. Very slowly (I had worn marks into my thumb and forefinger with the slide lock) I ground enough off to get a trigger release with almost no movement past the 'wall' detent and 'reset' looked to be only about 1/4" Yeah, small variances there but I wanted to be accurate. Ghost says they have "removed the bump" that was inherent in all connectors to make the trigger pull smooth and sliding with no variation in force thru the whole squeeze. I cannot "explain" just exactly what that means but when you press their Evo Elite the pull is excellent, smooth and unlike anything I've used in the past (I've got the Rockets, I've got a Vanek, I've done the .25 trigger job, blah, blah). I honed the connector until I could 'actually' sense the trigger release which gave me about 1/3" of travel past the 'wall' and about a similar amount to 'reset.' Press was rather light but I did not measure it as I think the real issue is range use and feel. I installed the light firing pin safety spring, I installed the 6# trigger spring and the slightly heavier than stock 6# firing pin spring. I polished all parts, re-assembled the G22 and dry cycled it. I then, both pistols empty, compared it with a very nice Vanek Classic trigger. Now the Vanek is not inexpensive and is a fine 'drop' in replacement part (I love their trigger bars, very different looking than stock Glock, just looks like better materials) and that is in my wife's G22. I noted shorter travel (of course) and even less pressure (now I would rather not discuss competition vs self-defense here but I believe that my Evo is fine for all carry). My wife and another friend both tried the 'pulls' on both G22s and the ultimate comment was "Wow, you don't feel a thing" (meaning not one interruption in the smooth press process). Total prep and install time for all the little grinds and so forth was a solid hour. I took my time, you cannot 'put back metal' after filing it off. Range - I was concerned because it 'felt' so smooth and 'easy' to press/take up/ fire. I do a lot of practice from the draw and of course no one wants to have it go off while near the legs or .. .well. Started with some paced singles from the ready and what I noticed immediately was "no bump" and therefore an easy gun to keep on target thru the whole press. I proved that by placing a metal target at 35-40 yards and using it to determine the "flow" (important at distance, anything tight with a 'press' will pull the gun off just enough to miss - the width of the metal is 4" to 6"s so you can understand that point). Five shots at a controlled pace and not a single miss! The trigger worked like butter. I then went to 60 yards uphill and again no misses. On to double taps... outstanding control because the press is so equal, so inherently expected thru the process. I have a set of standards that I use to try and keep myself young. One of the standards is 2 shots from the HR into a 6" wide target 7 yards away. I had not shot this in a long time (was out for a while). I figured there was no better way to determine if this ultra smooth trigger really imparted better control and target acquisition than a few fast double taps. Again, had not shot this in a while (in fact had not fired a pistol in many months sadly). Best time on two shots, about 2 inches apart, was 0.9 seconds. And I was rusty. The trigger is inherently a automatic improvement in your times and accuracy. From the holster (I use a Kydex, right side, no cant) I was pleased to find that a firm grip was safely made and removal, finger off, from the holster to press out (with finger on once at eye level) was accomplished numerous times with no sense of AD. I am sure some will suggest 'heat of the moment' nerves, etc... all things to consider but I have had a few and I still believe this is fine for "me." (Emphasis, 'me'). I have never tried GlockWorxs triggers or any of the 'expensive' Vanek drop ins (aside from the lower priced mentioned above - which is VERY nice) but for the money I am believing that this is the sweetest deal that provides the best trigger response one might find for a stock Glock. If you have the patience to be 'slow' and get it right you won't be disappointed. (I don't work for Ghost). Be safe. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
