    I have a Glock 34 Gen4 I would like to reduce trigger over travel on and am having trouble deciding whether to buy a Ghost Rocket or Ghost Tactical kit:

    Reducing trigger pull is not very important to me since I am satisfied with the trigger pull the stock Glock minus connector provides. I would mainly like to reduce over travel.

    I use this gun at action pistol events and for self-defense, and would be interested in hearing from those who have experience using Ghost products.

    I and my buddies all use the Rocket. We shoot lots of USPSA and they also shoot IDPA. Great connector, lots of rounds through it with no issues.

    I have the;
    Glock standard connector,
    Glock "-" connector,
    Ghost 3.5 drop in connector,
    Ghost Rocket 3.5 fitted short reset connector
    and
    NY1 spring module.

    I feel like the pull weight of the
    Glock "-", Ghost 3.5 and Ghost Rocket 3.5 to be about the same.

    If you want the same pull weight as your Glock "-"
    with reduced reset and over-travel?
    The Ghost Rocket 3.5 connector is what you're looking for.

    The Ghost connectors seem a little more glassy and crisp than the Glock OEM "-".
    But not by much.

    I personally was getting unintended double taps with the Ghost Rocket 3.5 and factory springs. Great range trigger, but a little light for my taste.

    Tried Glock standard connector and NY1 - way too heavy for me.

    Next Glock OEM ''-" and NY1 - and I like that a lot.
    Finally Ghost 3.5 drop-in and NY1 - perfect street trigger for me.

    The connectors and springs are cheap, just like talking about them.
    Get some parts, swap them in and out and experiment.
    Find your own way my friend, that's part of the fun.

    I have the Rocket connector ,6lb trigger springer,reduced power plunger spring in my G19 and love it. There is minimal pre-travel and no over travel. The Rocket must be fitted and is great if done correctly. I personnally have not used stock springs with this set up but would think if you use the stock springs that it might lower the pull just a little from factory set up.

    The OP mentioned he's using a "-" connector.
    Not a standard one.

    I really think the pull weight of "-" connector and Ghost Rocket 3.5 will be about the same.

    With all factory springs;
    switching to any 3.5 connector,
    Glock OEM or after market,
    should reduce the pull weight ~1 lbs (from ~6 to ~5).

    That's been my experience with them.

    I have the Ghost Tactical connector in my G-30. I love it! I added the 6.0 lb trigger spring, Ti safety plunger with reduced tension spring, Ti extractor rod with White noise 20% stronger extractor spring and polished the trigger group. The trigger feels like your breaking a glass rod when squeezed "perfect". I am guessing the trigger has around 4lbs or slightly less of pull weight. My brother and I put it side by side with his Gen 4 G-26 that has the 3.5 lb Glockmeister connector. We could not tell any difference in trigger pull weight but, mine was smoother with no overtravel. When I buy my next Glock I am going to use the same setup.The Ghost connectors with the ECT are worth every penny and make a huge difference in accuracy.i

    I've run both. I think the Ghost Rocket is just *that* much lighter. I don't have a trigger pull tool to test with though, so definitely subjective. If I had to guess, I'd say another .25 - .5 pounds lighter? Not a bunch, but noticeable. And the overtravel stop is nice too.

    This is the setup I have in all my glocks but I also have the 6lb firing pin spring in all as well....

    For me, it's basically perfect...
