    I purchased a G36 that had a fitted ghost rocket 3.5# connector. It was the lightest and cleanest trigger I ever had in a Glock. Most of mine have the Glock 3.5# connector, but I'm thinking about a pair of fitted rockets for my G24's.

    I have the factory, LWD and the Ghost 3.5lb connectors. The LWD and Ghost are better than the factory, but between those two, to me its would take actual scientific measuring to determine which is lighter, IMO theyre about the same. The ghost connector I have has holes milled in it for "self cleaning purposes" whether or not it works, I dunno, but it looks cool!

    The OEM 3.5 feels like crap.Its not a crisp clean break.

    I have the Ghost Rocket 3.5# in my G32. It's the best glock trigger I've found though it does require a bit of gunsmithing to install though very basic

    There is a fitted ghost rocket and a standard ghost rocket. From what I can tell the fitted model controls overtravel better but costs more.

    Fitted Ghost Rocket

    The tab on the front of the connector must be trimmed to allow the trigger bar to come back far enough, which also works as a positive stop.

    Just ordered the Ghost Tactical, carry pistol as well as IDPA, so we will see how it does.

  13. LWD 3.5# and the .25 trigger job here. Much improvement for a G23.

    yea I have the regular one, well the one with holes milled in it. I already have the LWD trigger stop, the fitted ghost rocket just would of been overkill according to LWD.

    Sorry to hijack

    And another one. :thumbsup:

    It might not be "crisp and clean" and finely honed, but it will limit discharge to one round, with a reset thereafter.

    WalterGA likes the Scherer trigger connector. I went to buy one locally. The shop had one left and a few Ghost connectors ans told me how good the Ghost connectors are. The Scherer was cheaper and I just wanted to give one a try for the range. I don't care for the Scherer magazines and magazine bases but the trigger connector seems like a good one. I carry with the standard 5* factory Glock connector but the 8# one seems crisper and isn't bad.
