    Does anybody know why the "- connector" has a line thru it on the order sheet and why we cant purchase them as spare parts as we can do with all of the other parts?

    I know I can find them on line but how do those vendors get them and I cant

    I forgot to add that I am a Glock Armorer

    What does Glock say when you ask them?

    Armorers have never been able to purchase "-" connectors. Glock considers it a liability issue. Vendors import them on the black market, and that is why they charge so much for a $3.00 part.

    Danny welcome back and thank you for the answer. I just started to shoot the Major sub and I wanted to put a "- connector" in my 30SF for the Topton event.

    To get them directly from Glock they are only available to LE/Military and have to be done on letterhead. It's too much of a pain to go through all that so I get them from Glockparts.com. They carry the OEM "-" connectors. $24.95 plus shipping. I have tried just about every other one out there and prefer the Glock OEM "-" one to the others. TXPO

    Cabela's use to (and may still) stock an item called the "Glock Parts Kit". I bought the only three they had left in stock at my local store. They were on sale for $19.99 marked price was $49.99. It comes with a minus connector.

    Here's a listing of what's inside:

    At the prices some of these outfits charge for a minus connector this is one hell of a good deal. At my Cabela's they were kept by the Glock Magazines. Check it out - you might get lucky!!
