    Hey all! I've just installed a ghost 3.5lbs ultimate connector into my glock 22 gen3 with no luck. After performing a function test I discovered the trigger wasn't working properly. Its not firing. I'm stump! The only thing I can think of is maybe the connector is too flush against its housing? Has anyone else had this issue?

    Well--first question is "did you follow the instructions"?

    Could be several things.

    Yes, the connector can be too flat to the housing. It should spring
    out at a bit of an angle. Put the stock one in, look at the angle. If the
    new one is flatter, bend it. It's not that tough---you can do it be hand.
    Bending it a little too far won't cause too much grief---it will just rub the
    little ear a bit harder against the slide.

    Trigger spring. Can be install incorrectly, usually it will drag on the housing
    and not allow the trigger to "pop up" and reset when the bump on the inside
    of the slide pushes the connector out of the way.

    The best way to diagnose Glock trigger problems: Get a cut down slide
    cover plate (the thingy that slides into the rear of the slide and retains
    the striker and extractor springs). They make a orange one called an
    armorers plate, or you can just grind off the lower third or so of a stock one.

    With STOCK parts and a good light, cycle the gun and watch how the parts
    interact. Put in the aftermarket parts. See any difference in how the
    parts make nice with each other? If you do---that's probably the problem.

    Thanks so much Billm for the advice and the link! It turned out that the connector was actually not flush enough. First is slightly bent it out with no luck. Then I bent it in very slightly and now it seems to work perfectly. I'd have to put a few hundred rounds down range before i would put my trust in it but so far so good. Thanks again!
