Hello all, I received my Ghost 3.5Lb connector today from Lone Wolf Distributors, and I just finished the installation. Upon doing a dry fire function test, should I notice a night and day difference on my trigger pull? It almost feels the same as the stock connector. Is this normal?

I felt the same so I switched back/forth. Eventually I found the difference to be SUBTLE but right at the last 1/8" of travel where the cruciform breaks from the striker tab. The 5 lb stock connector gives a vague "click" while the 3.5 lb connector gives a faster break.

I only paid $12 shipped for my Ghost standard 3.5# connector (NOT to be confused with the Rocket, Tactical, Ranger) so I'm keeping it installed.

I have new stock Glocks with great trigger pulls, and some with horrible triggers. I have run into similar situations where installing a 3.5# connector hasn't made a dramatic improvement. In situations like this, I have resorted to some light polishing (.025 trigger job), and/or swapping the connector. Also, make sure you put a drop of lube on the end of the trigger bar where it meets the connector.

I just did the 25 cent trigger job on my Glock 17. I can feel a significant difference in the resistance of the slide when you manually rack it (it glides now).

However, I put the 5# connector back and I think I will keep it this way. The 3.5# connector reduces the force needed for a clean striker release, however I find that it's too "predictable" and I'm anticipating when the striker will be released. With the 5# connector, the extra effort makes it kind of vague so I'm surprised when it releases the striker. I heard this is more favorable with the Glocks. I will try it at the range with the stock connector and the polishing job.

I took out the Ghost 3.5# standard connector because there was a manufacturing defect. There's slightly more material that allows it to contact the mechanism housing when it bends in during slide movement.

I don't do the 25 cent trigger job on my guns. I find the 5000 round trigger job works the same.

5000 rd at $0.10/rd = $500
$500 >>>> $0.25
