    I recently purchased an Indianapolis Metro PD trade in G23 and it has a "+" connector which as I understand it yields an 8# trigger pull. (It is noticeably heavier than my G27 with a well broken in stock trigger) A friend of mine who is in the force says the brass thinks it makes them safer. My question is does anyone use the 8# connector in their carry piece?

    I used one for a couple weeks.

    The trigger was slightly more crisp....but I didn't like it after using it a little more.

    Not me. That's heavy! The stock Glock trigger is fine for me.

    My Detroit PD G22 came with NY1 spring and standard connector. In my Gen3 GLOCKS I run a "-" connector and NY1 spring. Makes for a nice crisp trigger pull just slightly heavier than the standard connector and spring but not as mushy feeling. My Gen4 is stock.

    I've got a NY trigger (8#) in my carry pistols.
    Prevents me from popping off a 2nd round unless I intend to.

    I have been thinking of installing a NY-1 trigger. How much does it affect accuracy compared to the stock Glock trigger?

    Sounds like most of you guys are using the 8# trigger spring which I've heard good things about in conjunction with the 3.5# connector. I may have to pay a visit to my LGS and see if they'll sell me a NY1 trigger spring and "-" connector just to experiment with it.

    With good trigger control, installing a NY1 trigger spring shouldn't decrease accuracy. Some say that it actually increases accuracy by creating more of a "surprise" trigger break.

    I did a few range trips with the NY1 trigger spring installed. I didn't mind it all that much. After a hundred rounds or so it definitely seems to get heavy. My accuracy wasn't increased or decreased. I ultimately decided not to carry it as I didn't feel that it created any benefit to me.

    I also have a NY2 trigger spring that I temporarily tried out on one of my GLOCKs. While I never took it to the range that way (I will at some point), there's a big difference between the NY1 and NY2. The NY2, even with good trigger control, I could see effecting accuracy. I won't know for sure though until I actually try it out.

    As to the original part in question: I have a "+" connector as well. I haven't used it at the range, but when I installed it in my carry gun to check it out, I didn't actually notice a huge difference in trigger pull weight.

    I got a Tampa Florida Police Dept Gen 2 G17 . It had a "+" connector in it and it was a heavy trigger pull. I put in a regular Glock connector and it is back to normal.
    My carry gun off duty and on duty has the normal 5.5lb connectors. Why have a heavy trigger in there ? I hate em , I kinda wished our dept used the connectors in the 34's and G35's :cool: They are safe , you just have to keep your trigger area clear .

    :dunno:

    I don't shoot for groups (anymore) in the way that most people do.
    Most (if not all) of my shooting is focused on double taps at 6-7 yards.

    I will say, that once I got use to the 8# trigger I shot one with a regular 5# and it seemed to break too soon / easy.
