    I'm looking to get a trigger pull of 3.5 with the shortest reset possible. I dont want to replace the trigger itself or change the appearance of it in any way. I know if I get a new york spring I can have a very short reset but they only make that in a 12 & 8lb spring that I know of. That coupled with a 3.5lb connector still gives me a trigger pull of about 5lbs give or take. Anyone know of any other options??

    A firearm relies on all parts working together. Changing one part has an affect on other parts.
    Glocks are great pistols for what they are. Service pistols.

    Have you entertained the thought of going to another platform?

    I'm not aware of any way to retain the stock trigger and get the pull weight down except for changing the disconnector. You could just replace the whole trigger mechanism but you don't want to do that.

    I have a M&P .40 cal which I prefer over my Glock but the Glock is what I'm required to carry at work so I'm trying to make it as good as possible given that restriction.

    What does your work require for a trigger pull. Making a trigger too light could open your firm for liabilities if an AD or ND occur.

    Oh no it doesn't require for a light trigger pull at all. I'm just required to carry the glock and am used to the 3.5 pull on my 1911 that I trained with for the last 5 years prior to owning a glock. As for the liability to the firm, I would agree completely that most folks have no business adjusting anything having to do with performance on their weapon systems and I wouldn't think of doing so had I not had extensive weapons training. Personally, I just prefer a short reset and lighter pull for reduced friction and resistance for quicker follow on shots and increased accuracy with a high rate of fire.

    Try training with the Glock for a while in stock mode. It really does work in stock condition.

    Due to the design of the firearm the "trigger reset" is not changeable... But I will say that when you put a 3.5 connector on one you get a very good trigger and trigger reset is normally a term used for the practice of holding the trigger back until after the slide returns to battery and then bringing the trigger forward just enough to reset(click). This results in much faster follow up shots and will ALLOW THE FIREARM TO CONTINUE FIRING EVEN WITH A BROKEN TRIGGER SPRING!!!

    Hope this helps

    p.s. Have a Glock Certified Armorer put it in, Joe the gun plumber voids warranties and causes malfunctions...
