    They should work just fine. Next time you come to Roanoke, I'll do a trigger job for you.

    You mean lighten the trigger pull to 3 lb instead of 5? What would that cost?

    Just the cost of the new factory connector. I'll provide free labor.

    This gun is less than 3 months old so what advantage would this be?

    The advantage of a "-" connector and trigger job is a 1 to 2 pound lighter, smoother trigger for competition.

    I thought factory (-) connectors were hard to find. Am I misinformed? Can you quote me a source?

    Thx!

    I purchased two, because the G34 comes with a (-) connector...I just did a trigger job on that.

    Ya know that there are some people (like me) that do not like the '-' connectors, and do not consider them an aid to better shooting.....it's largely a matter of opinion based on what method you use to control the trigger.

    Just asking because I have never had any experience with these "snap caps", are they even necassary? I dry fire my Glocks all the time and it doesn't hurt them. Or am I missing something here???

    I dry fire without them all the time without issue.

    Just a word of note though ... this topic ... IS IT SAFE TO DRY FIRE MY WEAPON (ANY PLATFORM)? ... is a hot button issue for some. Folks get mighty tweaked about it.

    no, their NOT necessary.

    I have them for my wife to practice loading and unloading rounds etc.
    Their also good to see what you might be doing wrong, while shooting, by having someone, sneak one in a mag for you and you don't know where it'll come up.

    I have done that with them also.

    The 17L and 24 are the only Glocks guaranteed to come with the (-) connector as they are not on the officers or department lists for agency pricing. They are listed by Glock as competition whereas the practical/tactical 34-35 can come with a (-) or not!

    Now watch 30 people come up and say their 17L/24 came with a 5.5 # from the factory!

    I've bought a couple of Glock factory "-" connectors on eBay for under $25.

    Now that seems like a smart idea to cure anticipation issues but as for dry firing with them I think I would pass. Seems like a waste of money to me. But I guess since the other drill exists they do have their place.
