My G35 trigger

341 7
Up until recently I had only 2 Glocks. One is my G21, which is the first gun I ever bought way back in the 90s. I dont ever shoot it. The other is a G35 converted to .357 Sig. This one I have put close to 10k rds, maybe over. Anyway I just picked up a brand new Gen4 17mos on sale at my lgs. The trigger is terrible compared to my G35. So I installed a "minus" connector in it which made it a tad lighter but absolutely nothing like my 35. It is a lot grittier/rougher feeling compared to the 35. I had people shoot the 17 and they say it feels like a normal Glock. I was told that the striker spring in the 35 is probably wore out. Im not getting any light strikes so I plan to just keep shooting it.
Has anyone experienced this on a heavily fired Glock. Im wondering if the trigger is worn out or just worn in.

Mike, its a new Glock, it will need a couple hundred rounds to smooth out, a $0.25 trigger job will get you there faster.

The MINUS connector in an OEM Gen4 G17 lowers peak trigger pull by only about 0.5-lbf, to 5.0-lbf, compared to the Gen4 standard DOT connector which produces a 5.5-lbf pull.

It is unreasonable to expect a new Glock to have trigger characteristics similar to a Glock with ten thousand rounds through it.

... by measuring energy in the spring directly or measuring trigger pull with your old spring vs. a new one.
It requires a mathematical integration of spring force versus displacement to compute stored FP spring energy. A very easy and direct check may be done with a trigger pull gauge attached to the firing pin underlug. The force indicated when the FP underlug has been fully withdrawn with the gauge should be whatever the rated spring force is. The standard OEM SILVER FP spring should be very near 5.5-lbf.

But, I agree that OEM FP irregularity is a very rare thing. I would not worry about it, unless a slide disassembly reveals an OEM RED 6.3-lbf or BLUE 7.0-lbf FP spring, neither of which is sold by Glock for use in the North American market.
