Glock 3.5 LB Connector Review
Is It Worth Installing A 3.5 LB Connector In A Glock?
If you want a smoother and easier trigger pull,
the answer is yes. The trigger pull on my
Glock 19 with the factory Glock connector was fairly smooth
(presumably because I had shot over 7,000 rounds through it) but it
still had a noticable
trigger break. At the trigger break I still had to pull a little
harder to fire the gun. After I polished and installed the new 3.5
pound connector into my Glock 19 I find that the trigger break has
all but disappeared. My trigger pull is very smooth. That "last
resistance" of the trigger pull is gone.

How Does The Glock 3.5 LB Connector Work? How Does It Reduce The
When you first look at the Glock 3.5 LB
connector and compare it with the factory connector in the Glock you
would think that they are exactly the same. They look identical. But
if you take a closer look and measure the dimensions of each
connector you will begin to see the differences (see above). The
mechanics and science behind why the 3.5 pound connector reduces the
trigger pull is not obvious and would take some studying to
discover. I don't have that much time.

NOBODY CAN TELL ME WHAT THAT LITTLE HOOK ON THE TOP OF EVERY GLOCK CONNECTOR
IS FOR. IT'S THE ONLY CONNECTOR PART THAT STICKS UP ABOVE THE POLYMER FRAME,
AND THE SLIDE PLATE HAS A NOTCH CUT OUT FOR IT. WHAT DOES THIS LITTLE HOOK
DO, WHY IS IT THERE AND WHAT IS IT CALLED. SOMEBODY MUST KNOW SOMETHING!
PLEASE HELP. BIG TIME THANX. GINO
I could be wrong but I wouldn't think it has a special name and that it is
simply a part of the connector.
I don't of the notch you refer to in the "slide plate".
But I think the uppermost part of the connector (the part sticking up above
the frame) depresses the firing pin safety (the spring loaded button in the
slide) when you pull the trigger.
In other words, it part of the Glock Safety System. When it contacts and
depressed the firing pin safety it frees up the firing pin allowing it to
That's my guess anyway.

Is it exactly 3.5 pound trigger pull by installing the connector? i seen a
few videos on youtube that shows its closer to 4lb. also would it make that
big of a difference to invest in a titanium firing pin and other items that
would make the pull on the trigger alot smoother. also do you think its a
good idea to install the connector on a handgun thats used mostly for
appreciate the response.
Response - Adam,
Sorry for the delay in responding.
I doubt that it's exactly 3.5 pounds but I don't have the weights to measure
it with. I assume it's an approximation or an "average" trigger pull.
I have looked at the titanium
firing pin and other items associated with trigger pull that you are
referring to, but I question how much difference they will actually make. I
don't really know. After installing the 3.5 connector and polishing my
trigger I doubt that I would be able to tell any difference of replacing
additional parts. I don't think my finger is that sensitive. For me it is
My friend did the same mods to this
Glock 17. While shooting at the range, a few of his shots fired off
target because the gun went off when he didn't expect it to. He was pulling
the trigger at the time but did not know where the trigger break point of
discharge was. He was not used to it being so light and smooth.
As far as installing the connector on a gun used for personal protection, my
thoughts are ..
If I carried my Glock 19 all the time and relied on
it for personal protection I am not sure if I would make the
modification. In my way of thinking, reducing the trigger pull and
smoothing out the trigger helps with target practice and shooting when
you are using the sights of the gun and have time to pull the trigger
slowly and deliberately. In a self defense scenario shooting, I would
think that I would most likely point shoot without using the sights and
I would be so excited that the little bit of trigger pull difference
would not make any difference to me.
The factory Glock trigger is probably a little bit
safer when it comes to accidental trigger pulls, but you still have to
pull the trigger for the gun to go off.
I'm not really sure, but I have seen somewhere that
the police don't allow their officers to modify their guns. They must
have good reasons.
The best thing to do may be to buy one and try it for
yourself and make your own determinations. They are cheap enough and are
easy to install. If you don't like it and are afraid that it makes the gun
more dangerous to accidental discharges, it's a simple matter to reinstall
the original factory connector.
Follow-up - Thank you for that detailed answer. I highly
appreciate it! I will try it out for myself to see what suits my needs. Adam
