Default 3.5 trigger

Hello, thinking of putting a 3.5 trigger on my g22. Watched a few YouTube videos, looks like something I can handle. A few questions for those that have done this. Can you really tell a difference in the speed. And what's the best brand, I've heard ghost tossed around a lot.

Please be aware of warranty issues, and in the case of self defense responsibility for an altered trigger.

If I have to use it in self defense, that should be the last of my worries, but, yes, I do understand where you are coming from!!

Seems to me that most incidents regarding accidental discharges where Glocks are concerned involved people playing gunsmith by reducing the trigger pull. The 5.5 lb factory trigger pull is fine, at least where I'm concerned. If someone's intent is to accidentally blow their nuts off then be my guest, but please make sure it's yours and no one else's.

I was wondering the same thing, but to be honest I'm content with the factory weight, I just want a smoother pull, should I just have a professional trigger job done?

The NYPD have their Glock triggers changed to the NY1 trigger, which is 11 lbs. They've been used with lots of success, so 5.5 lbs even if a little rough is a piece of cake. After all, it is what it is a work gun and this is a Glock and not a target pistol.

Look up 25 cent trigger job on YouTube. Basically you polish all the stock parts to make them run smoother. Very little change in pull weight. Also if it's anything glock you can handle it, all you need is a punch

I got a ghost drop in connector on amazon for around $25. And I do like it alot on my G21. It's not a hair trigger it just makes the pull a lot crisper. Installation is very easy.
