I I just my glock 35 back from a gun smith and he did a awesome job. I had a performance package done to it but here is my question. He replaced the connector with a race connector from glockworx. I was wondering if the stock connector in a gen 4 G35 would fit into a gen 3 G23. I want to do this because the stock connector on the G35 is a 3.5 connector. Or maybe I'm way off on this and should leave it alone. Either way anyone got some knowledge to share.


Also anyone know of a gen 4 mag well?

Glock claims a 4.5lb pull for the 34 and 35. They both have the "-" connector which would be similar to a 3.5lb connector but I think it's still not as light as a Ghost or Lone Wolf.

Well I went ahead and put it in since you guys let me know it will fit and it dose feel lighter. The only reason I went for it was because I had it lol.

In the following picture, you see two red arrows pointing to the - marking on the minus connector, aka the "3.5" connector.

Following weights are approximate with standard coil trigger spring:
The "minus/3.5" connector has a - marking, in a Gen3 the pull weight is about 4.5lbs. In a Gen4 it's usually just under 5lbs.
The "dot" connector has a . marking, in a Gen3 it's about 5lbs, in a Gen4 it's about 5.5lbs.
The standard connector has no marking, in a Gen3 it's about 5.5lbs, in a Gen4 it's just under 6lbs.
The + connector has that marking, in a Gen3 it's about 8lbs, I have no idea what it would be in a Gen4.

Correct, connectors are not generation specific. Stock connectors are about 5lbs, "-" are called 3.5lbs but are really about 4lbs.

I believe blue label Glocks (Law Enforcement purchases) have about a 5.5lb trigger as stock.

I've found Lone Wolf and Zev Tech connectors to work great. Ghost connector is good, however if you get one with over-travel tab you will need to file the tab down a bit to get the right over-travel stop (don't be nervous, it's designed for this).

Swapping connectors does help. BTW a lot of old time shooters used to thin the stock connector themselves with a dremel. I've done this and it works fine, but for the effort better off just buying one. :)

Correct, and they have an extra magazine. If you're LE and buy one make sure there are 3 mags. I had a local dealer who was keeping the 3rd mag and selling them separate and letting Blue Label's out the door with just 2 mags. A call to Glock remedied it...

Thank you all for the information. The connector seems to be working fine. It is a small deference but I can tell it is there. I'm going to the range soon and will give a update

Another thing u can do to make ur trigger pull somewhat smoother is to polish the contact points on the connector and where the trigger bar contacts the striker plunger in the slide. I use a dremel tool, felt polishing wheel, and flitz metal polish Then I put a small drop of oil on those surfaces. I've noticed a smoother pull
