Trigger connector... Is this normal?

    I was doing some dry fire practice when I noticed the trigger being forced forward a little as I racked the slide to reset the trigger. I did a little investigating and noticed the trigger connector rubbing on the projection on the inside of the slide causing the trigger connector to move towards the center of the frame. After a detail strip of the frame it looks like the trigger connector is bent a little out.

    Here's a pic of the part of the slide I am talking about, the part that is moving the trigger connector.

    Here's some pics of the trigger connector installed in the trigger housing.

    Yes, it's supposed to be like that (bent outward a little bit) and it is supposed to make contact with that part of the slide (the "hump"). Just make sure to lubricate that area (the "hump" inside of the slide and the top of the connector) and you are ready to go.

    As mentioned, not only is it normal, it is the very mechanism of the reset. By contacting the slide hump, the connectortab moves towards the centerline, thus allowing the triggerbar to rise back up (assisted by the upward force of the trigger spring), and that's your reset, accompanied by that characteristic "click".
