    For about twelve bucks today. My question is that is there a minor or big difference in the trigger. I havnt put it in yet, little nervous, never torn apart a glock before but watched a YouTube video and it looks really easy. Btw I'm not mechanically stupid so I'm sure I can whip it.

    Thanks A.J.

    I have the 3.5 rocket kit, huge difference in my 19 and not hard to install. Worst case, you don't like it and swap back to original.

    With factory springs you should see a reduction in
    trigger pull from ~6 lbs to ~5 lbs.

    Depending on what you've purchased, it may be drop in.
    Or require fitting for reduction in trigger reset - a la Ghost Rocket.

    Ghost makes both types of 3.5 connectors (with and without short reset).

    Looks like a 3.5 drop in, with no short reset fitting.
    There are videos on the net for how to install.
    Should be relatively easy.

    No problemo my friend - Enjoy!

    BTW I must admit I had a gunsmith fit my Ghost Rocket.
    But I lift weights and destroy everything I touch - LOL!
    Lots of folks drop in 3.5 connectors themselves just fine.

    I didnt notice a huge differen e with just a connector swap, adding a 6lb trigger spring to the mix helps.

    I have installed 3.5lb connectors in all my Glocks, & so far the best & consistant are Ghost & Lone Wolf brands! I have also used Glockworx zev race connectors, but unfortunately a hit or miss! I have a Zev on my G20 & it's great, & I just recently place one in my G17 Gen3 & it's just a waste, & I even installed a heavy trigger spring. However, I've never tried a Scherer connector.:cool:

    I installed a Glock 3.5 connector and reduced power spring in my 27 and noticed a significant difference in the trigger pull. It was much lighter. After 4 different range sessions I decided that the light pull was not something I wanted in concealed weapon so I reinstalled the original connector this morning but left the reduced power spring installed. Off to the range on Wednesday to test fire.

    I ordered the LWD 3.5 connector with the NY1 trigger spring for my 27. The trigger now feels lighter to reset, then crisper.

    I was a bit uncertain installing the NY1, but discovered the curved side of the spring matches up with the curved edge of the trigger housing.
