    I just received an ad from Lone Wolf for a new 3.5# connector. Apparently it is polished. Does that render it ineliiglbe to be used on a stock Glock for GSSF. In fact, does an owner polish on the trigger render the gun ineligible too?

    Thanks

    What would make it illegal, is if it is a non-Glock part. Glock does not make a 3.5# connector, the proper terminology is a '-' connector, the pull is closer to 4.5#. (They changed this about 2 years ago? The terminology, that is.)

    If it is a part made by Glock, it would be legal.

    Polishing the trigger parts is not illegal, basically it simulates wear. This comes directly from Danny, the moderator of this forum. I do this to my guns.

    Polishing parts does not specifically make the gun ineligible for stock. Aftermarket (Lone Wolf) parts and connectors DO make it ineligible. Glock's OEM lightest connector is 4.5# and is fine to use in stock. It's the same connector that GLock used to call 3.5#.

    Find the latest Glock Report at:
    http://www.gssfonline.com
    and look up Rule 40.00.

    BTW, you can tell a genuine Glock 4.5# minus connector by it's price - $20-$25. :crying:

    The Lone Wolf connector is ILLEGAL for stock divisions. I would have got a Glock factory" -" connector 4.5lbs and polished it myself. But thats just my opinion. I will say this I own alot of LOne Wolf parts and they all serve me great and are built very well.

    I actually put a glock 5.5 connector in my g34, I like my triggers to have a shorter reset and less creep. A good polish job does make a noticeable difference. Just my 2 cents.

    Sorry Danny, I just wish i could get my G34 trigger to feel as good as my G26. It has zero creep and is even shorter to reset for some reason.

    I recently installed the Vanek Custom GSSF Master Trigger Kit in my Gen4 G23. I haven't had a chance to do any live fire with it, but in dry-firing the pull is very smooth and I would estimate about 3.5#. Charlie uses Glock parts to make this kit, keeping my G23 legal for GSSF.

    Yeah buddy. I probably could have done with a Gen4 trigger bar by Vanek, but I had "eBay" money burning a hole in my pocket and a glowing recommendation from this board. Time will tell if I chose wisely or not.
