    I ordered the Scherer part because it had a lot of positive write ups. The trigger pull on my G20 isn't too bad, but I'd like to get it really nice for target work. I don't think I wouldn't leave the 3-1/2 lb connector in if I carried, but it should be nice for the range.
    Any and all input appreciated.

    You are going to like it...might as well do the .25 trigger job while you're in there.

    BTW, why not leave it in full time? It does not make the weapon unsafe as long as you do your part and keep your finger out of the trigger guard until you are ready to shoot.

    Nothing wrong with having the 3.5 connector all the time. There are no laws preventing you from doing so. If you can legally carry a pistol, you can have a 3.5 in your pistol.

    The 3.5 connector by itself, will NOT give your pistol a 3.5lb trigger pull. Swap out the striker/firing pin spring ($3.49) for a 4lb spring. The factory spring is 5.5lbs.

    Internet rumor has it that you will get lots of light primer strikes. It is false. I did this with my G22 almost a one thousand rounds ago, and have NOT a single round fail to fire. Wolf, Remington, Winchester, Cor-Bon, hell even re-loads, all fired.

    :cool:

    Oh man, I didn't know about the spring. Does that mean the connector by itself won't lighten the pull at all???
    Thanks for the heads up.

    It will lighten the break not the pull..It will give you 4 to 4.5 trigger break..

    Which will most likely suit you just fine. Makes it a very nice shooter. I do it to all my Glocks.

    +1 Try the connector only first. I think this will give you the results you seek.

    The Glock "-" connector is much better than aftermarket brands.I have one in my G35 with a NY 1 trigger spring.Excellant combination, for my personal preference anyway.

    Sorry...a general term for buffing engagement surfaces lightly...no alteration or changes to angles or dimensions, no stones or paper, but simply polishing the existing engagement surfaces.

    An old term we used back in the day as part of the Small Arms Maintenance and Training Unit in the USAF.

    My bad...

    Because I've tried the other ones.What I meant by "better" is that it gave me a lighter, smoother trigger pull.This my personal experience.Yours may be different.

    Good to know... thanks for that. Hows the true 3.5 lb. pull compared to the true 5.5 lb pull?

    I disagree, the Scherer and LWD give a more crisp, clean break..Thats my opinion anyway..

    I just put a scherer connector in a G17 RTF2 , polished the internals, and changed some springs, what a difference! Also that warren tactical/ DP sight combo is amazing. The gun is so easy to shoot and the slide moves so fast the sights come right back on target after each shot with so little effort... I didnt think these mods would make a difference but they did and they are CHEAP! (except the $100 sights )
