    well i finallay got my glock 22 with mepro light night sites on it and man do i love the feel of this weapon. cant wait to put it through its paces at the range

    any ways the weapon has an 8 pound trigger which seems just a lil heavy any suggestions? how hard is it to swap in a 5#der?

    thanx

    It came with an 8# trigger? Was this used or NIB? Glocks come with 5# normally.

    Changing the connector is intimidating but not hard. Glockmeister has full instructions.

    brand new gen 3

    my uncle bought it for me as a gift for accaptance to the police accademy

    ne way it says 5 pound on the box but 8 pound on the paperwork.

    he does work for a PD so im not sure if they installed a police trigger or not.

    thanx

    If you will be using the G22 for work, you might want to check which connector the department allows. My department requires the 8lb connector. Today I measured the trigger pull on 11 of the academy's guns with the 8lb connector and the trigger pull weight ranged from 9lbs to 11 lbs. We're trying to convince the Chief to switch to the factory 5lb connector for a nice 6-7 lb trigger pull. Good luck.

    If your department allows it, a Glock armorer can swap out the 8 lb connector for a 5lb connector in about 3 minutes.

    BTW, I have 3 lb connectors in all four of my Glocks, and they **measure*** from 4 1/4 to 4 3/4 lbs on a trigger guage.

    So don't necessarily believe that the connector weight is accurate.
