Honestly, go for it. I am an idiot when it comes to fixing stuff. I had a problem with the slide not coming off. It was remedied quite easy. The point I am trying to make is that if I can do it, anyone can do it. Mr. Glock gave us a gun that is easy to tailor to our own needs. I have taken my G-19 apart several times tonight trying combos of 3.5 and 5 connectors, as well as the orange and olive NY trigger springs. I found out that I like just the 3.5 connector with no ny springs. I couldn't have known without having the guts to try. its a shame I didn't realize this soonr. I hve had my g-19 for over 10 years Now I really got Glock fever. I want more Glocks and more parts!
