NY-1 trigger spring. two reasons: first: it gives IMO, a more consistent trigger pull in the 5-6 pound range - there is resistance from initial pressure until the gun fires. the stock spring allows a bit of light pressure slack before heavier pressure is needed. second: the NY-1 spring replaces the most fragile part on a Glock, which is (again, IMO), the stock trigger return spring. i've had such a spring break on me during competition. the gun can still be fired by flicking the rearward trigger forward with the trigger finger after each shot, but it's obviously MUCH slower. the NY-1 module squeezes its spring to operate, rather than stretch it like the stock spring, so it's virtually unbreakable in normal use.

    as for your combination of 3.5 lb. connector with stock trigger spring: if it significantly improves your combat accuracy, and you have no other problems (see 40Bob's experience earlier in this thread), use it, but be prepared to justify it in court should you ever be involved in a shooting where you kill or wound someone.

    Doesn't Glock have a disclaimer that the 3.5 lb connector is not for use in carry guns, and should only be used in competition guns?

    I don't know why people get worked up for doing trigger jobs on their carry guns. If the shoot is good then everything else (including ammo) isn't going to be a problem. My M&P is my EDC with a trigger job and I have no problems with it. My Glock on the other hand doesn't have a trigger job since I love the factory trigger.

    I have found that a .25 trigger job smooths the trigger pull on my Glocks. I have done this to all of my non competition Glocks. Connector and spring are still stock.

    I hunt with a BLR. I'm used to shooting accurately with crappy triggers. Just practice.

    First let me say I love Blocks and would carry one if they just had a safety.

    In terms of gun modifications I do then like I do my carry ammo - I log it. When I have a gun worked on - especially if it's a "modification" I make sure I document why (article/blogs/books/ect.) and get as detailed a rec't from the gun smith as he can give me. I agree with the earlier post - smooth out a gritty trigger BUT train your trigger finger.

    As a wheel-gun lover who carries a Sign 238 I have to really work on the finger muscle memory - going from my Smith 625 to the Sig 238 helps alot

    Plenty of people go to prison for good shoots. Ever hear of Harold Fish? Part of what sent him to prison was that he was carrying 10mm hollow point ammo (where it was legal).

    bottom line........ It is perfectly safe to have a trigger setup like so
    Glock 23 Gen3-- Mepro Light Tru Glo night sights-Polished Internals-3.5 lb connector-6 lb trigger return spring Extended slide release lever-Stainless steel guide rod-Pierce grip plug
    Glock 26 gen3--
    Pierce +2 mag extension w/ finger groove

    When I ran irons, I couldn't tell much difference in my shooting with either stock set-up or the 3.5 connector.

    Now that I've gone the milled slide/RDS route, I like the lighter easier trigger pull on my pistol:

    dear Badey: it has been 6-7 years since my last Armorer's certification expired. my last memory is that Glock wouldn't SELL you a 3.5 lb. connector unless it was FOR a competition gun like the 24 or 34/35. for a long time, the only way you could get one was to take one out of a gun that already had one in it. in the late 90's, other vendors like Lone Wolf, started to have OEM Glock 3.5 connectors for sale. i bought several from them. i believe that Glock never officially OK'd the 3.5/NY-1 set-up that i like, but they didn't condemn it either, perhaps because the total trigger weight is around 5-6 pounds. i don't know how they felt, either on or off the record, about just subbing the 3.5 lb. connector for the stock 5 lb. one in a carry gun.

    I put the standard Ghost 3.5 on my 27. It lightens it up enough that I thought the springs were best left alone to be on the safe side for a carry gun. I will Ghost the trigger and likely will also swap springs around on my new G35, however. I don't plan on carrying the 35, but I might have to unload it on a home invader or zombie horde.

    Then don't carry a gun.

    You shoot someone, expect to go to jail (maybe for a few hours, maybe for a few months) and expect to spend a lot of money in legal fees.

    I still think its amazing to still find people that do not think (or know) what may happen after the shoot.
