    Just an observation of mine, kind of a pet peeve I guess.

    In every pic or description I've ever seen so far on how to remove the connector from the trigger housing/ejector, why doesn't anyone ever use the Glock Disassembly Tool (or desired 3/32 punch), and PUSH the connector out from the left side???? (This is what I do, looked like the correct way to me the 1st time I detailed stripped my G32.)

    There is a hole in the center of the area (left side) where the 'tab' on the connector that slides into the housing goes (see pic below) I would think that pushing the connector out from the hole, would be less stressful on the non 90 degree angle that the connector has, than using a knife or screwdriver to pry out the connector from the right hand side (or scrath it up).

    Does anyone else do the same thing, or does everyone just use a knife of flathead screwdriver? Or am I just doing it 'wrong'?

    This pic is edited from Glockmeister, and it is of the right side of the trigger housing/ejector, but the place I'm talking about is highlighted red.

    I push then with a punch. The early trigger mech housings did not have the hole to do this so a punch could not be used.

    Ah! So that would be why it became 'common' to use a knife or flathead screwdriver to remove the connector. In my 3rd Gen G32, it has always had the hole. Learn something new everyday.
