    So i bought a 3lb trigger connecter and spring kit for my 21. I put it all in today, haven't shot it yet, but the trigger pull seems so much different. I'm not sure i like it, but i shall go shoot it first. Anybody have any experience with it?

    What connector and spring kit did you use? Only the Zev Tech connector gets down in that range as far as I know. Or, are you referring to the total kit bringing the pull down to the 3# range? What is it about the pull that makes you question the feel?

    Way to little info to respond.
    With all the various connectors out there you really need to be more specific.

    I bought a set up from Glock polishing on E-bay, it came with a connector, and three springs. The thing that makes me question the job is the trigger pull just feels different before it breaks, it just feels kind of sloppy now. It may just be because i haven't shot it in quite a while

    I don't have experience with that set up.

    Had a Ghost Rocket 3.5 short reset connector fitted by a gunsmith.
    Used all Glock OEM factory springs.
    The trigger pull is reduced from ~6 lbs to ~5 lbs.
    Reset is almost eliminated.
    My trigger feels more crisp.
    And breaks positive and clean now.
    But is wasn't that bad to start with.

    Seems like I read of folks trying various 3.5 connectors and results vary.
    Fortunately the parts are relatively cheap and can be removed if needed with no harm done.

    The eBay person going by the ID of glockpolishing shows one kit as follows:

    • Custom NEW Extra Heavy 6lb Trigger Spring. (trigger spring helps you pull the trigger, heavier is better)
    • Custom Reduced power Firing Pin Safety Spring
    • Custom Reduced Power Firing Pin Spring/Striker Spring 4lb.
    • The Newest 2012 version LWD 3.5 lb Trigger Connector
    In a Gen4 G21, I'd expect this to yield a trigger pull of approximately 3.5 lbs. A Gen3 might have a 1/2 lb less. You will probably shoot like you've never shot before.

    I've got that connector and trigger spring in my G26 and I love it. After you take up the slack it feels like a single action trigger.

    Expect light strikes sooner or later in your G21 with the 4# firing pin spring and OEM firing pin. Of course you can do like many others and blame Glock for selling you a pistol that does not function properly.

    I would never go with a lighter firing pin spring

    Go back to the OEM firing pin spring and it will improve and be more reliable.

    Leads to speculation of the defendant's lack of experience of glocks. :supergrin:

    Oh, and overruled... lmao

    I do a couple of connector, spring and polishing jobs on customer's Glocks each week. I will change out those springs listed above except for the firing pin spring. That's the one I won't change.
