Hi,

I keep hearing this thing called "3.5LB connector". What exactly is it? Please englighten this n00b.

The connector is a part that connects to the trigger bar. The stock connector on the G34 and G35 is a 3.5# unit, which produces a trigger pull of around 3.5 pounds. All other stock GLOCKs use a 5.5# connector which makes for about a 5.5 pound pull. The 3.5# is more conducive to fast, accurate fire, especially when firing from the reset, shooting double taps, etc.

I prefer a 3.5# connector made by Scherer which provides a smoother pull and more crisp break than the OEM 3.5# unit.

Isn't the 3.5LB connector bad for CCW?

Nope. In fact I know of a few departments around me in MO have 3.5 connectors on all their

service pistols. The amount of trigger pull does not change the way you should handle a firearm.

3.5 on all of mine.

For non-SWAT people here, all the Glocks have to have the horrendous NY2 trigger spring in place. No other changes are done to the guns

And they wonder why most shootings invovles lots of rounds in the deck?

Hows your trigger discipline? Love mine on my G22.

Poor trigger finger discipline is bad for CCW.

I meant isn't it bad for CCW because since the trigger pull is so light, won't your holster nag the trigger guard and make it go off?

Clumsy weapon handling, poorly designed holsters, and not paying attention to what you are doing are also bad for CCW.

That's the latest from a Lone Wolf Dist rep i spoke with last week. LEOs shouldn't have 3.5's in their guns to begin with.

Isn't blaming the trigger sort of like blaming the gun?
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 5:07:21 AM EDT
why? the gun and the standard trigger are 100% reliable
