    I just got done installing a NY1 trigger spring I gotta say I am impressed. The trigger feels much better for the few rounds I got to fire. I used my existing 5 1/2 lb connector and didn't notice any difference in pull weight.

    To me the pull is lot smoother like my other double actions. I differently like it and for 1.99 it was a stealer deal to make a unbearable trigger a little nicer.

    I did notice when field stripping the gun you have to pull the trigger back or the slide will get stuck only down side I found to it so far.

    So anyone else used the NY1 spring and how where your results?

    How difficult was the install? I have some ny-1 triggers ready to go in some of my glocks, but haven't attempted an install yet. Thanks

    Seriously it was really simple it literally took almost nothing to pull the pistol apart. I used the following videos

    At first I was kinda worried cause the trigger assembly looks complicated but it really wasn't.

    Using the Glock armor tool all and all it took me about 5mins.

    Most complicated thing was remembering to diddle with the slide stop (had to push my forward lightly) to get one of the pins out.

    To the second poster, it's not very hard to install but knowing where to put the part might not be completely obvious. I will have to suggest youtube for a source of guidance in picture form if you don't have access to an armorer's manual.

    I run a NY1 trigger spring and a Loan Wolf 3.5 connector in my G23, G27, G30SF, and G34.
    If you haven't tried the NY1/3.5 connector combo, you may also like this combo.

    I'm using the same configuration as Randy:

    LWD 3.5# connector. + NY1

    It is installed on my G23

    I have heard of the NY1 trigger of course, but I thought it made the trigger pull heavier. What is the actual advantage of this trigger?

    Thanks.

    I have had every trigger configuration in my Glocks; NY2, NY1, NY1 + 3.5# connector, 3.5# connector and 8# connector.

    I shoot the best with the standard trigger spring and 5.5# connector. All of my Glocks are set up as they come from the factory now.

    It may not be a lot, but the NY1 trigger definitily has a heavier pull than the stock spring.

    To each his own. Glad that you found what works for you.

    Gives the trigger more a double action feel. Instead of the trigger feeling mushy tell you hit the trigger reset. It has a nice solid feel like a double action revolver.

    Good find. Lots of folks think the NY trigger was the result of NY wanting a heavier trigger. It wasn't. They wanted a trigger closer to the DA revolver pull that 30,000 officers were already familiar with, and as you noticed that is what happens, it gives a smoother DA-type pull.
    The NY will also give a firmer, more pronounced reset. The 3.5 connector with the NY1 has recently been approved by Glock as a valid combination, and some like it. I prefer the NY with the 5.5 as the best setup for me for defense and fighting purposes.

    Its extremely easy. A month ago, I had never taken a glock apart further than a field strip. Now I can totally dissaemble the entire gun and put it back together with no issues. A few youtube instructional videos and some practice is all you need.

    Even thought my Glock is a range gun I found after installing the NY1 connector to be a almost perfect combo. Its a tad lighter then my J-Frame and 686 but not overly light very pleased with the end result. Now only if I could talk my friend into installing the NY2 spring and 8lb trigger bar since he thinks the Glock trigger is to light for condition 1 carry.

    I heard it would bring the trigger into the 28lb pull range. I didnt know it will stop the gun from firing completely.
