    I noticed the top of trigger bar, above the bump, on my Gen 4 G22 is pretty rough after four years of hard use. Would putting a drop of oil on the connector make any difference?

    Try it and see if there is an improvement. There should always be lubrication inside the hook (where the trigger bar and connector meet). Otherwise, the parts will eventually gall each other, and will both will need to be replaced.

    If lubrication doesn't help, have a Glock armorer inspect the weapon. I always lube the trigger bar/connector juncture with grease after a detail strip. After subsequent shooting, a drop of CLP is always placed inside the connector hook.

    Buff w/ green scotch-brite, wipe, then Grease.

    Then, a drop of CLP every once in a while.

    Hopefully, you realize that they write this stuff down and print it in the manual.

    It helps keep all players on the "same page".

    I find it amusing that sooo many ignore the manual..

    It says....

    Don't fire lead bullets..... People do....

    It says clean after each use....People don't...

    It says lubricate the pistol at various places.... People don't.

    The manual should NOT BE A TEST OF WILLS..

    The people who designed and built the pistol are NOT attempting to mislead the buyers.

    They write this stuff down, for a reason.

    I know people who have good results by not following the manual. But my guess is that statistically speaking the best, most consistent results are more frequently realized by those closer to what the manual indicates.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it looking rough if it is working to your liking. Putting a dab of grease there would almost assuredly make the trigger pull feel better. If it isn't worn badly, a 25 cent trigger job could clean it up, nicely.

    Under the hook is right place to oil the connector. Where else are you thinking about?

    All right I screwed up. It's not the connector it's the top of the trigger bar where it engages the striker. The very top above the bump is rough. I couldn't figure out the replies until i went back and read what I wrote. Sorry to allcon, my screw up, it was a long day yesterday. I worried about lubing this point as I didn't want to get lube into the striker channel.

    Tip of the cruciform/firing pin lug - no lube needed or wanted.

    I don't find an warning about lead in my latest Instructions for Use. Only mentions reloaded ammo. Page reference please.

    Ditto on grease instead of oil. Grease will stay put. Pick up some Hi-Temp red bearing grease at an Auto Parts store or WalMart for $4 bucks and you'll have a life time supply.

    Some people don't lube this area but you can put a thin film of grease there. Any metal rubbing another metal while under some kind of pressure will always work better with some lube, even if it's a thin film, and it will prevent galling, in the long run.

    By bump do you mean the hump that engages the striker block safety?
