what is this, and does your glock have it?

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by ShotRePeter, May 23, 2012.

  1. My gen 3 glock 19 has always had the heaviest trigger I've ever felt on a glock, so I figured I'd detail strip, make sure theres not a small child stuck in there or somthing, and when I had it apart I figured I might as well do the 25 cent trigger job on it, so far no problems, well, when it was time to put it back together, I gotta little confused and looked up a glock diagram, instead of a little spring that connects the trigger bar to that housing thing, i've got that little piece. Well I figured out how it was supposed to go back together, but now I'm wondering if thats the reason my trigger is so heavy. Anyone familiar with it?

    Put a standard coil trigger spring in there instead and the trigger pull should be about 5.5lbs. In your picture that's the NY1 trigger spring and what looks to be the standard connector, which would give a pull of about 8lbs.

    When installing the standard coil trigger spring, when looking at the trigger housing from the side that you can read the number on the ejector, the spring should be oriented like an "S". If it's the other way around, like a "Z", that's not the way it should be oriented.

  5. ew!!, I gotta get that B**** outa there, thanks guys, saved me a bit research, And thanks for the info on installing the standard spring, I'm sure it'll come in handy
  6. You might want to think about getting a 3.5lb connector
    and trying that with the NY1 spring you have there first.
    I find it preferable to the stock trigger spring and connector.
    Just my $.02

    I love this set up! With my NY1 spring, I've got a glock 4.5lb "-" connector in mine, just for the sake of staying stock, (I did have a Ghost 3.5 connector in it for a while first, and I really liked it also). I've also installed a reduced power striker safety spring from zevtech. The feel is very smooth and crisp, I like it better than the setup I have in my G20sf, which is a 6lb trigger spring, ghost 3.5lb standard connector, LWD trigger overtravel stop, and a zevtech reduced power striker safety spring. I just really like the feedback from the trigger you get from the NY1/3.5lb connector setup.

    Having been mandated to use a NY Trigger for 15 years, I can assure you the pull is closer to 12 pounds. I prefer the standard spring.

    You had a NY trigger in your Glock and didn't know it? That's too funny, and if I hadn't shot Glock's a whole lot, I could see myself making the same mistake and just ridin' with it.:wow:

    The ONE mod I do to my Glocks is to install the "-" connector and NY1 trigger spring!

    Approved by Glock AND Mas Ayoob!

    I do not care for the NY1 and I do not like a heavy trigger pull in a Glock.

    friends don't let friend use NY trigger springs. :rofl:
  13. Thanks again, I guess i'll order the "-" conector and the stock trigger spring see which combination I like the best, either way, i'm not out too much money, also, a bit of clp on the connector/triggerbar sure helped a lot.
  14. ordered, running a the ny spring with a ghost connector, I like it. Especially for carry, if i switch to c3 carry instead of c1, I might put the stock spring in, but for now, with one in the tube, I like the little extra weight

    If you've taken the gun apart already for a cleaning, I might not have to mention it but with the NY1 spring installed, you HAVE to pull the trigger when removing the slide.

    give credit to Butch for the quote

    "friends don't let friends shoot a NY trigger."
  17. Mas said that Glock said (and if Glock said it, it's their legal dept talking), that IF you use a (-) connector and intend to use your Glock for duty or defense, it should be mated with the NY1.

    There are many seemingly 'approved by Glock' spring combinations in the Armorer's Manual:
    (-) Connector and Standard Spring = 4.5#
    (-) Connector and NY1 = 7.5#
    Standard Connector and Standard Spring = 5.5#
    Standard Connector and NY1 = 9#
    Standard Connector and NY2 = 11#
    [above combination ONLY recommendation for NY2 use]
    (+) Connector and Standard Coil Spring = 8#
    [above (+) connector ONLY recommended with standard spring]

    I recently switched my trigger set up to the NY1 and "-" connector and I absolutely love it. It is smooth and crisp with a light feeling break and a quick reset. You can find the spring for $2-4 and the connector for $15-20. It's worth trying even if you decide to go another way.

    What TacticalTree said...before you dump the NY #1 trigger, try it with a minus connector...that's what I have in all of my carry glocks. Less take up and a firm reset.
