    I was dry firing my 34 the other day and noticed the trigger pull had gotten nasty (not smooth, heavy). It's got a factory 3.5# connector and trigger (both polished). I took it apart and found that inside bottom edge of the trigger bar (where it rubs the connector) was rough and had actually carved some shallow grooves into the connector. I used a file to radius the rough edge of the trigger bar, followed by polishing.

    Anyone seen this happen before? I had to polish the heck out of the connector to get rid of the scratches the trigger bar had put in it.

    Sounds like the result of improper lubing; can't imagine any other cause.

    Improper lubing causing a burr on the trigger bar? My guess was when the bar was stamped, they left a rough edge, which I didn't notice until now. If anything, there's always been too much mobil 1 or TW25B on the connector.

    You're probably correct; guess I'd have to see it to understand it. First impression was that the simple action of the mating of the two surfaces had worn grooves in the trigger bar surface.
