    I changed stock trigger to 3.5lb one and stock trigger spring to softer one on my g-17 .
    took to the range and got kicked out because my gun was shooting nice doubleshots with every single pull of the trigger.
    then I changed the spring back to stock one and glock shoots like new again.
    how to explain that?
    and why slightly softer spring would do that?or was it me who did something stupid?
    my gun is not abused and has about 3-4000 rounds through it.
    i'll change it back again just to see if it is going to be the same.it's actually nice to have a gun that shoots doubleshots constantly [if you expect that].
    with some practice it would look like fool auto from outside.
    anyway,any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :wavey:

    Sometimes changing a connector will result in not enough engagement.

    Nice answer to the wrong question. (Sorry for the sarcasm but i couldn't help it.)

    He put the original spring back in with the 3.5 trigger bar and all was well.

    I'm very curious to knowe also because I have started doing trigger work to my G17 and want to know how all the pieces of the puzzle work.

    Well I'll counter you too. About the only the described double shot with one trigger pull could occure is with lack of engagemnet or good engagement.
