    I have a new Gen 3 21SF pistol and have already installed the NY1 (Green) trigger spring. I am looking for a Ghost connector that will keep the trigger pull at 5.0 to 5.5 lbs. Which connector should I get?

    LWD 3.5 lb connector. Don't use the Ghost connectors. Use the Lone Wolf connectors. Trust me on this one.

    Is there a problem with the Ghost? A lot of people seem to be using them.
    I was going to get a drop in, not a file to fit model.

    The factory pull is listed at 5.5 pounds, so if you are trying to keep it at that why do you need an aftermarket connector? The ghost 3.5 by it self will not give you a 3.5# pull, you also need to replace your striker spring and your trigger connector spring.

    Without replacing the springs you will have just under a 5# pull.

    Im using a ghost, the diffrence between the Ghost and the Ghost Rocket (file model) is that the rocket also allows you to reduce your Over Travel, eg trigger movment after the striker is released. This is what you are actually filing, you file it until you can pull the trigger.

    I actually use a lone wolf uts for that, and it is adjustable.

    Im also using the Ghost 3.5 drop in.

    May I ask why with some documentation please?
     
  7. Me three please explain this..
     
  8. 3.5# would be the right weight to get. Not sure what the difference is between Ghost and LWD. I've used the LWD in the past by it's self in a G22 that I had and I like the let off/break of the trigger. Really that's all the Connector is going to do, adjust the let off/break, the Trigger Spring controls the pull up to let off/break along with the striker spring. Since I use CCI primers to reload with I keep my striker springs stock, need all the "umph" I can get to fire off the CCI primers.

    My business is replacing connectors and improving the triggers and operation of Glocks. Ghost connectors are inconsistent and I have actually had one go full-auto on me once before. I quickly replaced it with a LWD connector. Now I use all LWD connectors. They're more consistent and actually provide less resistance which is what you want for the lighter trigger pull.

    That sounds bizzar, was that the only mod done? I agree that the finish or polish is one of the reasons to get the ghost, but I also thought there was a slight pitch diffrence too between the Ghost and Stock connectors.

    Im sure there would be alot of interested people if all it took was a trigger bar mod to make a gun go full auto. Of course in your instance it was unexpected which can be very dangerous.

    I like LWD products, I have only heard people really talk about the ghost connectors and with all the reviews I have read and youtube clips I have seen, this is a first I have heard of that issue.

    I don't doubt your claims by any means, just courious about the other aspects of the weapon.

    That connector was the only part I had replaced in that pistol. That's all the customer wanted changed. You have to make sure the angle is just right or it won't give you the proper "connection". I dropped it in, took it out back, and blamo! Full auto. All it takes is a little manipulation of the connector to make it full auto but then you'll have the BATFE knocking on your door and you don't want that. I have heard from other armorers the inconsitencies with Ghost connectors. This is why I use LWD connectors and Wolff springs.

    Thank you for your valuable insight and prompt responces. Ill assure you if I notice an issue with my weapon that will be the first thing I replace.

    I posted this same question on another forum, and someone there said that his .45acp clock wouldn't work with the LW connector, so that's why I was asking.

    Tried the Ghost Rocket but filed too much of the TCT off using a Dremel tool (should of used a file instead). Contacted Ghost and mailed back the connector. They sent me a drop-in replacement instead of another Rocket. Works okay. Will check the LWD though. Interesting comments! I did replaced springs with Wolff. I agree that you read most about Ghost and that's why I went with it right off the bat. I also polished the internals (as in '25 cent trigger job' videos) before I installed the Ghost, which seemed to smooth the trigger somewhat. I really want to fine tune the trigger on my 19C and I may need a second opinion from someone with more experience to test my gun and help me make the necessary adjustments so I can close my groups tighter at 15 yards.

    I have installed the "Ghost Rocket Trigger Kits" on all 3 of my Glocks and have not had any issues whatsoever. Now with that said, they may start acting up but so far so good. I've probably put around 700 to 800 rounds thru the G22 and G19 and around 100 thru the G27 (its only 2 weeks old).
     
  16. Not to get too far off topic but is the connector suppose to be flush with the plastic block it slides into or should it angle out as it moves toward where it makes contact with the trigger bar? Pics would be nice.

    Angle out. If its flush or inward you will get that "Thug" sound when you pull the trigger. I will adjust outward until I find that "Snap" sound.
    That's just the way I do it and it works for me.
     
  18. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it. ;)
     
  19. Being that you are a gunsmith you should have told them that ghost recomends changing all the springs with their connecters.I installed the ghost rocket and did not install the recomended wolf striker spring.Trigger pull was not consistant. I changed the springs as recomended it made one hell of a difference!Ghost is a fine product and they stand behind it just as LWD does!LWD or Ghost you cant go wrong unless you don't follow recomended instructions!

    Being that I'm doing this to my g21sf I plan on upgrading the striker spring to 6lbs. It has a new NY1 trigger spring, and new recoil SS rod and stock 17lb spring. The pistol only has 135 rounds through it.
