Who do you recommend for a smooth rather than ribbed trigger?

Is there an after market trigger bar for the Gen 4 that helps smooth out the trigger pull?  I prefer the lighter to heavier (NY style) trigger.    

Advice apreciated.

OEM for a Gen 4 G17.

Thanks for advice.

Would that include the connector?

I see that the Skimmer just uses OEM parts that have been hand polished.

Exactly what I did.
Does not include the connector but I use the Glock - connector in mine as well.  If you do change the connector change the reset spring with it to a heavy one otherwise it leaves you with a mushy clunk feeling in the trigger.

I see there are several weights of reset spring.  (Is this the NY trigger spring?)

Do you have a weight/pound preference?

I use a NY1, most don't like them but I do.

The NY1 will increase weight and make the trigger more like the DA pull of a revolver.  I recommend the Zev comp trigger spring paired with the lighter safety plunger spring.  I buy this kit and just do not use the striker spring unless it is a competition gun.

Smooth trigger is best. Factory trigger return spring is 5lbs. Aftermarket return springs that lighten the trigger pull are 6lbs. I tried the NY1 od plastic thing for shits. The trigger pull was unacceptably terrible even with a lighter plunger spring and 3.5lb connector.

The trigger/trigger bar (smooth or ribbed) and the trigger return spring are unrelated if you think you have to go with one or the other.

Don't fall for some of the internet talk that you can get a DA revolver style pull with the NY trigger spring. It's the reason for the staple gun reputation
