    I installed an ultimate ghost trigger "drop in version" in my Gen 2 Glock 23.

    The pistol worked fine in dry-fire cycles, but today with live ammo, it went full auto several times with 3 shots in rapid fire before the trigger reset. It did this at least twice on all 4 magazines we put through it. Needless to say, it's not being used until fixed.

    Hen I installed it I did breakdown thr slide and cleaned the parts. I did not disassemble the firing pin assembly.

    Has anybody ever experienced this?

    My armorer and I are puzzled.

    Thanks

    Do you mean Trigger Connector, or just Trigger? Never had that issue, but want to understand fully...

    You need to check the angle of the bend on the connector, compare it to the stock GLOCK connector.

    I recommend calling Ghost. I had a different problem with one of their connectors, and they were great. Excellent customer service.

    It was the angle. So, when you install, make sure you match the angle in thr stock connector.

    Morning PAGJD;

    I have had nothing but problems with just about every Ghost connector I have installed in the past year or so. To make it even worse Ghost doesn't even have the decency to return E-Mails.

    So far I have had MUCH better luck using genuine Glock connectors (like 100% great function).

    Any other mods done?
    As stated it should be a drop in part, I have installed several in the past and no problems. The connector needs to have a slight bend out wards when in the trigger housing. It could be that you got one that is out of spec along with your trigger housing being not perfect that caused your problem. I'm just guessing here, if you have another Glock that you could swap parts with you might try that.
    I'm sure if you contact Ghost they will work with you.
