    today i dissassembeled my 27 to clean it .in the process i broke the connecter. i was wondering what a 3.5 # connecter would do compared to a 5# connecter.would the lighter change my trigger pull.

    Yes, dropping from a 5# connector to a 3.5# connector will change your trigger pull. The first thing you'll notice is how much slack there is before you feel the actual weight before it fires. The second thing you'll notice is the lighter pull weight.

    Just curious though...how did you break the connector? ;I

    No just the connector.

    You may want to get a 3.5 and a normal 5.5 at the same time just incase you dont like the feel.
    The 3.5 feels kinda mushy to me but I do have in in some of my glocks.

    Screaming is right, all you have to do is change the connector. And like he said, wouldn't hurt to pick up both connectors cause then you can see what you think between the two.

    In addition though, if you have two connectors you can take the one thats not in the housing, and take the end that would slide in, turn around and use it on the opposite side of the housing to push out the connector. :) Or if you've got a small flathead screw driver, that'll do the trick too to lift the connector out. Goodluck. ;I

    If you pulled on the old connector hard enough to bend it, be sure you didn't damage the trigger mechanism housing (unlikely). If the new connector fits tight, you're OK. If it's loose, replace the housing.
