Excellent Post! Thank you for the valuable information sir. :hand10:
Seems like, and I'm going from memory here, that Massod Ayoob uses the 3.5 lb connector with the NY-1 trigger - I'm gonna order both setups today and try them.Great post. Information every shooter needs.
I use the 5lb connecter and the NY-1 8lb trigger in my defensive Glocks. Being an old double action revolver type of guy I find it fits my shooting style quite well.:yup:
I believe Mas uses the NY1 trigger with the stock 5# connector. I had the 3.5# connector and the NY1 trigger in my Glocks. It was pretty good and I recommended it for a while. I have actually used pretty much every trigger set up that you can think of w/ stock Glock parts and wound up coming full circle to the original set up Gaston put in his design. The stock trigger spring and connector work fine for me. YMMV. I did not spend a significant amount of time shooting revolvers. Those who do, tend to favor the revolver like pull of the 3.5# connector and NY1 trigger.Seems like, and I'm going from memory here, that Massod Ayoob uses the 3.5 lb connector with the NY-1 trigger - I'm gonna order both setups today and try them.
That's me exactly zacii. I know exactly what you're talking about.I like the definition of 'tactile reset' :yup:
I prefer the reset of my Glock over the M&P and XD. I used to say that it was because of a shorter reset, but I realize now that it's because of that in conjunction with the tactile reset.
Boy, talk about slow to respond - I'm makin' molasses look fast. Sorry to be so slow - however....Tangle, great info on triggers..... Do you have any insight as to how lowering the trigger pull on certain handguns might affect the lock time?
It is my understanding that most striker fired pistols cock the striker spring with the trigger pull; therefore if the trigger pull is eased with lighter striker springs does that extend the lock time?
no problem,,,Boy, talk about slow to respond - I'm makin' molasses look fast. Sorry to be so slow - however....
The name may have origins during the flint-lock times.Let's start with what lock time is JIC there's any question in anyone's mind. Lock time is the time starting with when the sear releases the hammer/striker and the ignition of the primer. Seems kind of a strange name to me for what it means, but that's what it means.
Yep, pretty sure that's the case.,,,The name may have origins during the flint-lock times.
I really don't know the answer to that. I know that the skeleton type hammers so popular in 1911s are to reduce lock time, but I'm not so sure that most of us could actually take advantage of the slight difference - again we're talking milliseconds of difference.,,,Do you have an opinion of lock time between striker fire and hammer fire pistols like a 1911 or H&K?
Which type has the fastest lock time, or is there just as much difference within the types?
