    Hey All,
    Long time lurker and finally posting up. I just installed Ghost components (connector, springs, slide lock release) in my 23C. It came with an aftermarket guide rod already installed. Now when I fire it and keep my finger on the trigger pulled back, the slide doesn't go all the way forward into battery until I release my finger from the trigger (see video).

    Anybody run into this or have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Put a new recoil spring of the proper weight, and a new 5# striker spring. It should work then.

    Your ghost connector is not the correct angle and is rubbing on the inside of the slide edge. Bend it to 90 degrees or change it out.

    What's a "slide lock release"? It's not on Glock's list of parts.

    If a functioning pistol ever becomes something you'd like to have, replace all of the aftermarketer scam parts with real Glock parts. :)

    Sorry, "Slide Release"? I do like the aftermarket trigger better than the stock trigger tho. But I guess it's personal preference. I have a 20sf and a 22 with no problems at all with the aftermarket parts. It's probably something I did with the install. If worse comes to worse I'll heed your advice and return my 23C to stick configuration.

    There's nothing wrong with quality aftermarket Glock parts, properly installed. Glocks are not perfect, there is always room for improvement.

    Hey thanks smokey45, it was the striker spring. I replaced it with a new 5# spring and it works like a charm, aftermarket scam parts and all.

    You got the answer allready. It's an out of spec connector. The ghost is not made in a true 90 degree angle so it rubs on the slide on one of the machines edges on the bottom. Put your old connector back in or bend the ghost to the correct angle.
