    All my Glocks get Ghost Rockets. A good trigger job with a Rocket connector is smooth and crisp with minimal overtravel. I recommend them highly.

    It's worth trying. Call Ghost Inc to place your order, hopefully Arthur will answer. Might as well get a 32 round magazine while you're at it.

    After installation does the trigger still feel like a 2 stage trigger?

    I put the connector in my 22. took a little time to file the tab for the over travel. Toally worth it. Throw in a little polishing and its got a great feel.
    I also put a glockwerks tactical trigger setup in my 17. Everyone, myself included like the feel of the ghost better

    I'd say there is less of a clean break. Instead of a short 5lb break, after the take up there is a slightly longer 3.5 lb break.

    I put one on my G35 a few months ago, takes a lot of time and patience to get trigger stop the right length, but it has a nice clean break now with a 2 1/2lb pull.

    +1. It's also to easy to screw up. You may not notice the problem for the first 1000-2000 rounds.

    At about 1300 rounds I could not get the gun to fire. I did not leave enough overtravel.

    Put in an 6 lb trigger spring with the Rocket, polish the firing pin plunger safety and you will have a shorter smoother take up
    and clean break with much less over travel if done correctly.

    Installed the 3.5 Ultimate Kit today with the 6lb. trigger spring and definitely noticed the difference and what a positive difference at that. Much smoother and shorter take up, not gritty or heavy feeling anymore, and a crisp 4lb. pull. Definitely worth the $26.

    I have a Ghost Rocket in my G22, I like the feel but I felt it is too light. So I married it to the NY1 trigger spring and I really like it! It is a bit of a pain to fit, but once it is fit, you are good to go!

    The 3.5 Ultimate requires no fitting, it's a very nice drop in part and I have zero overtravel.

    I have the rocket in my 21 and 23. I highly recommend it. Fitting can be a pain. Just take a little off at a time. Once youhave it set the it's perfect. Almost zero overtravel

    At about 1300 rounds mine stopped working. My gun would not fire. I didn't leave enough overtravel for the trigger to function over the long haul.

    Did you go back in and fake more metal off the tab, or did you just toss it and put in a different connector?
