    Thanks guys. It didn't seem right, but the gun goes bang. It was stupidly easy. Gotta love Glocks.

    Note> if you didnt do it yet...

    You'll probably have to add an extra step in field striping with the NY1...

    once you pull the trigger, slide the slide back slightly and slide forward.. it may hang up...its normal...just pull the trigger while pushing the slide forward to remove the slide.

    The NY1 presses up on the cross-shaped sear and causes it to hang up.

    I just found this out a couple of days ago.

    I wondered the same thing because the trigger felt awful when I put the NY1 in with my 3.5 connector.

    NY1 trigger is a 8 pound trigger meant to help officers used to revolvers have a more familiar feeling trigger pull. It increases the force required to fire the pistol from 5.5 pounds (with a normal spring) to 11 pounds. There is a also a NY2 trigger that increases required force from 7 to 11 pounds.

    NY1 assembly is OD green, NY2 is orange.

    The other benefit is it creates a very consistant pull all the way thru the break. It doesn't have that really easy pull and the big build up right before the break like the stock trigger. All my Glocks will have 3.5 connector NY-1 combos.

    I tried lots of combo's including stock and this one works best for me, especially with rapid firing. It's also a very reliable addition to a Glock.

    Ok - But what is the benefit of the combo?

    NY1 & 3.5 lb connector VS NY1 & 5 lb connector?

    Use of a NY trigger spring* simply makes the entire trigger pull heavier. How heavy depends on which connector is in use with it.

    Whether it's a benefit or not is up to the opinion of the shooter using it.

    The only significant benefit is to an attorney who is trying to show that you did not 'accidentally' pull the trigger.

    As long as you don't "accidentally" pull the trigger you won't have to worry about that.

    But like everyone said...there is no real benefit to having the NY springs over the original trigger spring. It's just a different feel. It's just whatever works best for you.

    I had just the 3.5# connector in the pistol and I didn't like the easy take up in the beginning. When I first put it in it was fine. However, the last time I shot with it I was surprised every time the pistol fired. I felt as if I was firing too easily, before I was ready. So far this set up seems more predictable and better to me. I also like the stronger reset the NY1 gives. Overall I don't think my trigger pull weight is that much heavier than it was with just my 3.5# connector in it. Just more consistent the whole way through, less build up before it breaks.

    So what is the pull weight when using a NY1 Spring with a 3.5 lb connector?

    Really, so why the combo? Was the NY1 spring designed to be used with the 3.5lb connector to reach the 8lb pull range or was it designed to work with the 5lb connector?

    IT was designed to work with the "-" connector (3.5#s). At least I think so anyway.

    No, not at all.....it was designed to be used with the 5lb connector to increase the break weight of the pull and the first part of the pull to be more like a double action revolver's trigger pull.

    Glock simply does not sell the 3.5/NY combination to the public, and they've avoided selling guns so equipped even to police agencies.
