    So thx for all the great feedback on to mod or not to mod and the legalities of all that...

    So I am going to move ahead and do this thing. ;-)

    Here is what I have planned for my G19, please advise as you think best:

    (-) Connector
    NY1
    Glock OEM Mag Release Part #1984 (For G34/35)
    Glock OEM Slide Release Part #7496 (For G34/35)
    Wolff Recoil Spring (What spring is recommended?)
    Meprolight 6.5 Low Profile Green Night Sights
    Decal G19 Rubber Grip Set
    Glock +2 Mag plate


    Thanks again for all of your input!

    I run the stock connector,with a extended mag and slide release OEM, if you want +2, just use G17 mags for the reload.

    If you need the +2 for carry or grip, get a G17

    The Good:
    I just switched to the OEM "-" connector / NY1 combination and love it.

    The Bad:
    Spent $$$ on tungsten and SS RSAs on my G27 and MK40.
    Ended up going back to OEM.
    Leave the RSA alone - IMHO.

    My advice is as follows...

    If you are new to Glock, you should first put a couple cases of ammo (yes 1000 round cases) through your G19 before making the decision to modify anything. Gain familiarity with the platform and put the pistol through it's paces for reliability.

    After doing so, I think you will find that except for some night sights, you don't really need to change a thing to obtain a reliable and accurate handgun. If you do end up ultimately deciding to change something after this trial period, then at least you are making a well educated decision about what is best for your personal needs.

    Invest your money in ammo/magazines as well as additional training, not a bunch of parts and other gizmos that aren't actually going to make you a more proficient shooter. :)

    Good advise, and as it happens advise taken. I have owned and run this gun for several years, probably have that 1000 rds plus some downrange. I am new to the site, and the interest in Glock guns in particular, after many years and 1000's of rds run thru 1911's... I luv my G19, just was lookin for that little bit more to see if I like it better that way.

    I really have to +1 on this actually.
    And I did put a full case of ammo through my G27,
    NIB bone stock, before I made any changes at all.

    None of those mods listed. Just put a smooth trigger in her and shoot!

    The Glock OEM "-" connector and NY1 spring is a cheap and simple experiment.
    I know little about guns. Did it myself in about 3 minutes flat during a lunch break.

    The constant lbs from start to finish and positive reset is a sweet thing.

    Well then your not actually the "newbie" you had portrayed yourself as. :supergrin:

    But be forewarned, no matter what you do, a Glock the trigger is never going to be akin to that of a trigger on a 1911.

    Also, as a Glock Armorer, I advise against the use of a 3.5 connector in a carry gun, but I also simultaneously accept the fact that others are free to make their own decisions as to what they do to their personally owned handguns.

    In the many thousands of rounds I have fired through Glock pistols I have found the only thing they need is a decent set of sights... but that's just me. :)

    ...and I may just turn out the same way Sir.

    Thank you for the consideration and response.

    Tell me, would the NY1 not mitigate much of that concern of the 3.5 in a carry gun?

    I prefer the vickers extended controls over OEM

    GT members trigger pull findings:
    "-" 3.5 with stock spring is right at 5lbs.
    All factory is actually 6 lbs.
    "-" 3.5 with the NY1 and get 8lbs.
    NY1 with stock connector was 9.5 lbs.

    I personally had a Ghost Rocket 3.5 professionally fitted
    and used with factory springs.
    Had some unintended double taps at the range.
    Even though I know it's trigger control and I'll get used to it.
    With the thought of me at my worst.
    Hands shaking and loss of fine motor skills following an adrenalin dump.
    I decided it was too light to carry.

    The OEM "-" connector and NY1 is supposed to be heavier than the NIB trigger.
    It feels the same lbs to me.
    Just instead of a two stage trigger with really light pre travel.
    Now it has constant lbs from start to finish.
    And what feels like a more positive reset.
    I feel comfortable using this trigger for carry.
    And feel I've lost nothing in accuracy over the Rocket.

    I have played with the Vicker's slide release and the OEM G34 release. I have a new G34 and I switched out the slide release to the non-extended version. It was fun but I kept hitting it with my grip and locking the slide back with rounds still in the mag. The Vicker's was downright horrible. The hole for the pin was too tight and it would hang up a bit. The downward curving part would actually rub against the frame. So leave it stock on that.

    For my play gun (a G34 Gen 4), I run the following:
    - glocktrigger "edge" trigger
    -Glockworx extra power trigger spring
    - Hogue rubber grip
    - Trijicon HD night sights (with the yellow front sight)
    - I polished ALL the internals...makes cleaning a breeze

    Every thing you have lined out sounds fine with the exception of one thing,it's pretty hard to beat the factory RSA,JMO.
    The other advice shoot if often and don't spare on the ammunition,oh and have Fun.

    I tried this tonight on my G36 and didn't like it at all. Changed it back. I felt the original trigger pull was a little to light. I may put the stock connector back in and try it. I do know the original owner said he had some trigger work done, but don't know what. It is much lighter than either my G20 or G34 and they both have the '-' connector. Just gotta keep trying different things I guess.

    Definitely try the NY1 with the standard connector.
    That's actually how Mas Ayoob runs all his Glocks.

    There is a NY2 12 lbs spring to if it's still too light with the NY1.
    Although I've never read of anyone actually going that heavy.

    If you want to retain the light pre-travel two stage standard Glock trigger feel.
    And just increase the trigger pull weight.
    Try going back to the standard spring.
    And replace your connector with an OEM Glock "+" connector.
    That should do the trick.


    Good Luck!
