    The NY2 which is the orange one. I had it in my service G19 switched to the NY1 after I retired.

    This is a somewhat informative article (gives examples of different connector and trigger spring combinations - author's interpretations):

    Link:
    https://www.tngun.com/glock-3-5-connector-and-ny1-trigger/

    From the article:

    • NY1 (8.5lb with standard connector)
    • NY2 (9-11lbs with standard connector)
    As an aside: I tried the NY1 with a minus connector (4.5 lb).

    Went back to the standard trigger spring. ;) YMMV

    That combination in my opinion has a very revolver-like trigger pull.

    I won’t have an NY anything in my glocks. I abhor them. Good to read differing opinions though.

    Not sure why it is better to have a GLOCK feel like a revolver. Why is it better?

    Having worked on 100 plus Glocks over many years I had exactly 2 to work on with a NY Trigger.
    The minus connector reduces the trigger pull weight on the older Glocks by approximately 16oz and 8oz. on the Gen 5 pistols. Do the math and it will never be 3.5# with a NY trigger and only a minus connector change.

    Didn't say it was better but there are still a lot of us old retired "revolver cops" around. S&W Model 10 for too many years to remember.

    Between the NY2 (orange) and the NY1 (olive), I currently have the NY1 in my G26 and my two G19s. I like the "wall" and also the positive reset. I shoot from reset.

    With NY2, you do need a lot more shooting to give your trigger finger that "muscle memory".

    Just used this combo today when I pulled out my long time duty gun (2nd gen G22) for a quick 50 rd session. I like the feel, particularly the reset, but my other guns are normal combinations of springs and connectors so I would need to practice a bit more with it before I’d carry it.

    NOTE- When issued it was the normal connector although we (Dept) did switch to 8# for a hot second after an accidental shooting.
