    I love Glocks but do not really care for the trigger. I purchased a Ghost Edge for my 19. I'm getting around a 3lb pull with no bump which is great, but a little light for a carry (for me). Anything I can add to make it a bit heavier without making it suck again. NY1 spring? Looking for opinions, and going back to the original trigger is not an option.

    I use the glock 4.5 lb connector and a 6lb competition trigger spring.
    I am very pleased with it.
    My G-34 had exact same trigger set up from the factory.

    Have you swapped springs? If you're getting 3# with ONLY a connector, that's much lighter than I've seen without messing with springs as well.

    No springs. Just connector and a polishing job.

    Hmmm... and you used an actual trigger gauge to pull a legit 3 pounds or where you estimating it?

    Not sure what you are looking to spend, but have you considered going back to the stock connector and doing something like the SSVI TYR trigger? I just bought one for my G43 from a guy on GunBroker. Liked it so much I just ordered one for my G17 from SSVI. They just got them back in stock today.

    Pull was done with scale. Anyone familiar with NY1 trigger spring?

    Everybody complains about the trigger, sure it's not great, but if you practice it's not that difficult to shoot pretty well.

    If you're wanting 5 shots in one hole at 20 yards, get a high end 1911 or something of the sort. The glock is a defensive/combat pistol not a target gun.

    Practice and learn to shoot it well, or quit b****ing about and switch manufacturers

    I have a NY1 in my 19 gen3 along with a factory minus connector. Internals are polished. The pull is between 6.25 and 6.5 pounds. There is no light take up followed by a wall. The take up is heavy and it stacks a little until it breaks.

    My preferred Glock Gen 3 setup is a (-) connector with a G17 trigger (smooth) and careful fitting of the trigger components. I also favor Glock night sights and a Vickers magazine release. This yields a trigger pull around the magic 4-4.5 lb range...just right for a combat pistol.

    Just because I don't care for the trigger doesn't mean I don't like the gun. I'm not b****IMG about the gun. To the others, thanks for the input. To you, kyduckhunter, thanks for not being a complete ******.

    Didn't mean to get you all riled up. My post was a response to the multiple threads I've seen(in my short time on GT) on how terrible the out of the box the trigger is. It just happened to be on your thread. I should've worded it differently, but I view a 19 as a defensive firearm, not a precision bullseye firearm

    3lbs with just connector, no bump, and polish? Best I could get with '-' connector and polish (the trigger bar bump barely touches during the pull) is 4lbs, 7oz on a G34.

    I agree that the trigger is not the best (Not just Glocks) however, it is getting smoother as I feed rounds thru the pistol and I expect it to meet my expectations as it matures; much like a good bourbon! As a gun club/defensive pistol, the 19 gen 4 is becoming my favorite pistol. In the service I at first was critical of a trigger setup and all right handed (I am a lefty) weapons. I was told to get over it and that has stuck with me.

    I have a couple friends that have used ny1 and a 3lb connector, it gives you a very smooth trigger with aclean crisp break, that is after a good polishing job,

    On my gen4 19 I have a stock connector with a 6lb trigger spring and through polishing job, I ended up with about a 5lb trigger with a very clean break, I tried 3.5lb ghost and zev connectors but didn't like the deal, be careful and only do a light polish where the sear contacts the striker, the goal is to polish not to remove material, I have friends that use the NY1 spring and 3lb connector, the ones I have felt were like stock weight with a much cleaner break, the stock Glock trigger is not that bad, but can be made a lot smoother with a little polishing, to each his own, I don't want to hear how I shouldn't modify a carry gun, or how the stock trigger is good enough for combat accuracy, or self defence, accuracy builds confidence in your weapon go with what works for YOU
