Hey guys I was wondering if you can help me. I currently have the 5 pound trigger setup on my glocks. I want to change them to 3.5. I am assuming I need the 3.5 connector and a firing spring? Someone told me that if you only change the connector it drops the pull weight to 4.5. Also which place has these parts the cheapest or in kit form? Glockmeister is a little expensive.

Thanks for the help.

I installed the OEM Glock 3.5 connector (available on e-Bay and GlockParts.Com) for around $20.

Trust me, you'll want to try just a new connector for a while before you decide if you want the trigger pull to be any lighter. I'd recommend taking it one step at a time and evaluating as you go. You might not want to take the next step. The Glock OEM 3.5 takes the trigger pull a "long way" in the direction you sound like you want to go. You'll likely be surprised. Me and my buddies sure were. We all love it, but certainly are not looking to make the trigger any lighter.

A reduced power firing pin spring may lead to light primer hits. Just stick with a factory "-" connector.

I have the Lone Wolf 3.5 connector in my G22 and the Glock 3.5 connector in my G19. You will definitely notice a change in trigger pull with just the 3.5 connectors installed.

Simply go with the 3.5 Glock factory connector, first. Then, if that does not suit your taste and you are so inclined to do so, you might opt to polish the connector, firing pin, firing pin safety, and the trigger bar.

I've got an LWD "-" 3.5 connector & the 25cent trigger job in mine & it's plenty light & smooth..
If I had a 4lb striker spring I "Might" try it just to see but for carry I wouldn't feel 100% that I would have ignition, I suppose with several hundred range & carry rounds without failure it might be OK..
Then you also have the #6 trigger spring to add to the equation too..

Thank you all for the quick reply. I have decided to just swap out the connector with a plain ol' glock 3.5. I swear I hate the 5# pull. I constantly pull to the left

Good decision not to change to a 4# firing pin spring unless it is a dedicated range gun.

MO' Feedback....

I changed the connector AND spring and it scared the hell out of me when I first tried it ..........!!!!!

First time out I did a double tap!

Now that I'm getting used to it, it is a great mod.

I have 3 glocks and have changed all 3 connectors. I put in 1 3.5# and 2 2.5#connectors. I didn't change the springs. Just changing the connectors helped a lot. Now all 3 have decent triggers still the long pull but feels a good bit lighter and smoother.

Ghost rocket 3.5, is a little more involved install wise.... but you end up with a nice light trigger, with MINIMAL reset. nothing compares.:cool:

Can you tell if there is any difference in the trigger feel, between those 2 guns?
