    Main thing to remember is the orientation of the trigger spring if it pops out. It's supposed to look like an S as you look at the spring as you hold the trigger bar over the trigger mechanism. Also, the connector will bend away from the housing and not sit perfectly flush. That is by design and normal.

    It's not hard, but should you do it? Depends on what the gun is for.

    If it's a gun you might have to depend on for self defense, it isn't the gun to learn on.....how 'stupid easy' it is doesn't make any difference.

    If it's a range toy, go for it.

    This also depends upon the state. Some states use what's called an "affirmative defense" in cases of self defense shootings. Virginia is one.

    I tested five different connectors in my G23 primary carry gun. I settled with the Glock 3.5 connector (part #00135) as being the best overall. It is a very simple swap and once you get the hang of it, should not take more than five minutes.

    thanks for all the help. its for a 34 and it starts with a 4.5. if i dont like it i will put in the 3.5. the video sure helps a lot. gun should arrive this week, will shoot it for a couple matches, and then make the decision.

    If you have a 34 and the box is marked 4.5 trigger, then you have what used to be called the 3.5 trigger. Glock has been remarking these for the past year or so. Might sound a bit confusing, but you actually have Glock's former 3.5 connector. It is now called a 4.5.
