    I wanted to ask if someone could recommend a 3.5 lbs trigger.
    Would like very crisp break and short crisp reset as well with little or no over-travel?

    I will be installing it in a Glock 17.

    Been looking at GlockTriggers.com, Glockmeister and Glockworx.

    Thanks for your help.

    Wait.......just checked the site.
    These don't look like complete drop in kits.
    Do they have those as well?
    I don't see it on their site.

    I assume you mean a "connector". It won't reduce the pull all the way to 3.5 lbs., but you should notice a difference. I used a "Lone Wolf" and enjoy it along with a 6 lb. spring.

    I did a 25 cent trigger job on my EDC stock Glock and that helped all by itself. DOC

    Sounds like you are looking for a polymer framed 1911.

    I've always found the OEM "-" connector to be fine. I "learned" it quickly and like the pull it offers.

    Ghost Rocket 3.5 is one of the favorite third party connectors.

    With factory springs I was getting some unintended double taps with the short reset. Ended up replacing with a Ghost 3.5 drop in and a NY1 spring ($3).

    The connectors and springs are cheap to buy.
    And easy to swap in and out finding a trigger you favor.

    Recommend most folks (including me) put 1000+ rounds through their factory triggers before making any mods.

    I tried and like the Glock OEM "-" + NY1 very much.
    Personally I felt the Ghost 3.5 drop in (no short reset)
    has just a slightly better feel.
    But not by much.
    And staying all Glock OEM is a strong argument for that set up.

    Has anyone tried the GlockMeister and/or the GlockTriggers.com drop-in triggers?

    +1, The Ghost Ultimate is their 3.5lb drop in connector and their Ghost Ranger is a 4.5lb drop in connector. I have the Ultimate in my G21SF for home protection, and the Ranger in my G36 carry pistol. I use the 6lb trigger and Firing pin springs in both.

    Ghost Rocket connector,6lb trigger spring,reduced power safety plunger spring and a complete internal polishing. Smooth,minimal pre travel and a short reset. I have never had an unintentional double tap with this set up. The drop in connectors are mushy IMO

    I have Vanek triggers in two of my Glock's and really like them. Not up to my 1911's but the best Glock triggers I have ever felt.

    I use glocktriggers in all my competition guns. The owner happens to live in my, area once in awhile it get the opportunity to shoot with him. Glocktriggers are drop in triggers and legal for GSSF competition.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT use a 4# FP spring with your new connector. Why the warning? Because many of these aftermarket Glock trigger kits come with a 4# FP spring; and, if your Glock is going to be carried for self-defense then the FP spring should be, at least, 5#'s. (There is, by the way, no such thing as a, '3.5#' connector. The minus, '-' connector is actually 4.5#s.)

    I like Vanek triggers; but, I've got my own slightly modified factory trigger mechanisms to the point where a little faster, a little less front-end take up, or a crisper reset really isn't going to do anything for me. There's just no percentage increase in performance sufficient for me to be able to justify the additional expense.

    Everybody who's ever tried one of my Glocks has loved the trigger. Even a local gunsmith who hates Glocks, picked my pistol up off the bench, asked, 'May I?' and went on to empty the magazine. When he handed that Glock back to me he had, sort of, a disgusted look on his face. Obviously impressed, all he said to me was, 'THAT is NOT a Glock!'

    What do I do? I heavily (and meticulously) polish ALL of the internals - with special attention paid to the FP Safety button. I use a 4.5# connector and Lone Wolf trigger stop. I, also, use Wolff Gunsprings 6# trigger and FP springs, as well as a Wolff steel guide rod. Why the Wolff rod? Not for any reason you might suspect. A heavy steel rod like the Wolff causes the frame to flex less and smooths out the recoil impulse. The fact that Wolff rods are non-captured is a plus.
