    G30 connector/NY trigger question

    I recently picked up a copy of Ayoob's handgun book 2013. There is an articel that talks about Glocks. Towards the latter part of the article, Ayoob talks about a Midwest PD that has mated a 3.5# connector to a NY1 "Olive" 8# trigger. The pull weight is 6# from the center of the trigger, and it is supposed to be pretty nice & crisp.

    I have a Gen "2.5" G30, and the wheels started to spin. As easy as it is to change parts etc. in Glocks, I figured what the heck? I ordered a 3.5 connector from Rock Your Glock and a factory Glock NY1 "olive" 8# trigger spring setup as well, along with a set of Warren Tactical plain rear/tritium front sights.

    Has anybody done this, what did you think?

    Happy New Year!

    I think the stock Glock trigger works fine, the problem is usually the shooter.

    Back in the day, we were required by our agency to have the NY trigger (which I think was 8 pounds, but felt like 15) in any personally owned Glocks carried on duty. Had the lighter 3.5 # trigger put in later, and oh what a difference it made.

    Myself, I would not modify a sidearm trigger, ever. PAs love to hear the term "Modified Trigger".
    And it WILL show up on the Depo if you ever have to use your sidearm for SD.

    I remember when NYC went to the 10# (or so) "NY Trigger" due to all the NDs during the transition from revolvers. NY got the first awful trigger 'fix', but the entire Nation had the ND problem... many a leg/foot got shot while holstering those new-fangled plastic guns. LOL

    I prefer the NY trigger. It takes some getting used to, but as patriot points out it does mitigate A/D's and N/D's With so more practice than any other Glock trigger it can easily be mastered. I have NY triggers in both my Glocks.

    I definitely feel you on modifying parts, especially trigger parts, which is why I have never had the urge to do so until now.

    If Ayoob is that legitimate, and a PD has done the conversion, I figure precedent has been set in my favor if I ever have to use it in a SD scenario.

    I'm happy with my Glock triggers as they come from the factory. However, I would not mind shooting one like you describe just to see how it feels.
