So…you own a Glock. And Glocks are, for the most part, awesome. They’re not pretty, but they’re reliable and functional firearms.
But you have a problem. You don’t like the factory trigger on your Glock (and who does, because the Glock factory trigger sucks), and you want something better. Something crisper. Something maybe a tad lighter. Something with a shorter reset.
Well, guess what, bubba? You can have that. For about 25 bucks, and less than 5 minutes of your time, you can have everything your heart desires.
All you have to do is replace the factory connector with an aftermarket one.
Now, when it comes to aftermarket connectors, I prefer Ghost. But, should you decide that Ghost isn’t the one for you, there are plenty of other options available. Just Google it and you’ll see for yourselves.
Anyway, when it comes to Ghost, you basically have two options for a connector (not including advertised pull weight). You have the standard Ghost connector that requires a little bit of fitting (due to their proprietary “trigger control tab”), but will allow you to completely get rid of trigger overtravel, or their “Ultimate” 3.5 pound connector, which is a 100% drop-in unit, no fitting required.
No matter which you choose, you’ll end up with a lighter, crisper trigger, with about a 50% reduced reset. The reset is the most important part to me, because it allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots. And in a carry/duty/competition gun, faster, more accurate follow-up shots is pretty damn important.
Now, be advised, your trigger will not be at the weight advertised on the package simply by replacing the connector. It’ll be about a pound lighter (on average), it’ll be noticeably smoother, definitely crisper. But it won’t be 3.5 (or 4.5, or whatever) pounds. If you want that, you need to replace more than just the connector. You need to replace the springs, too.
But if you opt for that, stay away from the Ghost springs. Their connectors are great, but their springs, not so much. If you want to replace the springs, get a spring kit from Wolf.
A Ghost connector combined with a Wolf spring kit is very nice indeed.
But most people opt for just the connector.
Try that out first, see how you like it.
