I was shooting a bowling pin match the other day with my Glock 17, and a friend sugegsted to try his Glock 34 with a smooth trigger of 3.5 lb..Boy..that was a sweet gun, and I loved the trigger..So my friend told me that I can replace the trigger pull connector with a 3.5 lb piece..So today i headed to the local gunshop and I asked if they carry that piece..They said they have the Scherer 3.5 lb trgigger pull connector for $12.99. They replaced it for free. and I tried my glock with the 3.5 lb trigger (100 rds) ..I just loved it. I still have the old connector (5.5 lb trigger pull connector just in case)..I just love Glocks..Where else you can get a trigger job for $13..I have other guns and I love them all (SIGS, CZ XDM, 92FS) but any trigger job on those guns will cost around a $100 at least..
GOTTA LOVE THE GLOCKS..

Thanks TOF,,,This Sunday I have a mini IDPA match at a local club (outdoors)..And guess what I am shooting..Yupp..The Glock 17 with the new trigger connector..Can't wait to see how this will affect my rapid firing score.
I had a G 19 a while back. It made a world of difference shooting it. A lot of people will say this or that about lightening a Glock or any weapon for that matter but I have had good results doing trigger jobs to a Glock and believe that it makes those weapons a lot more fun to use.
I've done it to a few (Striker fired) pistols I've had over the years and not had a problem with any of them.
Reducing the striker spring down to 4 lbs will not cause light strikes with any ammo I have tested. Trigger pull is determined by the striker spring and NOT the connector. A 3.5 connector just sets up release point of the striker sooner with less compression to the striker spring. Wolf springs make a real good 4 lb spring that will improve your Glock trigger action. Trigger travel for pre cock stage will be the same distance just a lot easier. This versatility easy tuning by simple parts changing is a quantum leap for pistol design by Gaston Glock. You can make it like YOU like it for little expense.
I take great enjoyment in out shooing $2,000 Kimbers with my $500 Glock
The person that replaced the connector on my glock mentioned that as an extra step I can replace the spring but that this will add a spongy-like feeling to the trigger and that if I like the crisp trggier break is to keep it as is (i.e. without the spring)..Any how..Ever since I bought the glock, and it is the only gun in my range bag..All the other guns stay home..Some how I am becoming better and better with the Glock at the range and in competitions..I just love shooting it with confidence that I will hit what I point at with no surprises..
Oh..one more thing I forgot to add..I love this big white dot in the front sight, so easy to see in competitions when shooting under pressure..It makes a big difference in my case..
jimmy, thx to you I found a Ghost-brand 'Ghost 3.5 Trigger' for my mod.23.; $15.95 plus tax in Phoenix. The shop, WeaponWorks, was way too backed up for me to wait, so since I'm relatively handy with mechanical things, I installed it myself. Ghost's instructions at http://www.ghostinc.com/category/ist...ninstructions/ seem more than a little intimidating initially, but I went slowly and was entirely succesful in a farly short time. Trigger pull is liter--but surely not TOO lite--and I think it's a little smoother.
IAE, thanks for the tip. If it's legal to do so in IPSA/USPSA competition in Stock class, I'll 'do' my mod.35 too.
I also shoot bowling pins and steel plates..and the new trigger proved to be a plus.
