    Hi Mr. Massad Ayoob,

    I have read through random sources on the internet claiming that there is a slight possibility that by altering your firearm, if used in a SD/HD situation, that it may back fire on you if the BG's lawyer finds out the "defender" was using a firearm that was modded "to easily kill". In this case, lightening the trigger. what is the truth behind all that? I am soon purchasing a baby Glock solely for CCW and love the OEM Glock 4.5 connector they offer stock in their competition models. I been shooting my G17 with the OEM 4.5 connector and I am much more accurate with it. I wanted to hear what you think on using this same connector in a G26 or G27?

    GT9, Glock recommends that the 3.5/4.5-lb connector only be used for recreational shooting, UNLESS it is combined with the NY-1 module which replaces standard trigger spring and brings total pull weight up to six pounds or so.

    A lighter than factory spec trigger pull facilitates an umeritorious prosecution or a groundless lawsuit built on the false theory that you shot the attacker accidentally instead of intentionally. There is no such thing as a "justifiable accident."

    Note where the people who have experience dealing with this sort of thing in court come down on the issue.

    best,
    Mas
