    I had my gunsmith put in one of these. Supposed to take my trigger pull down to 3.5 lbs. I wanted 3 but 3.5 is good. It went down from 7 to 6 lbs. So I got another one from Midway that is 2.5, a little lower than I wanted to go but figured it might give me my 3 lbs. It don't. Only picked up another pound. Now it's at 5 + pounds. What up with that? I think I saw one for 1 pound, do you think that would give me 3 or do I need a zero pound pull to give me 3? See my logic there?

    Im confused, a glock factory trigger is 5.5lbs,if you installed a ghost 3.5 then it should be a 3.5lb trigger pull.

    It is not that hard to get a 3.5lb pull with a 1911. :)

    Just a little polishing on my Springfield 1911 gave it a really crisp 3 lb trigger. Not difficult to get there at all. But 3-4 lbs is too light for my taste in a defensive gun.

    Yes, put me in the "me too" category. Check the spring and make sure it is not twisted or damaged. I have the 3.5 in several of mine, and they all pull at 3.5 lb. Have a certified Glock Armorer look at it.

    Sounds like you had a 3.5lb conector installed in your glock NOT a trigger assemble. Stock triggers are around 5 to 5.5lbs unless you got a used police glock and then it could be 8 or 10lb. Try to get it back to box stock the way glock intended and if a carry gun leave it alone. Glocks trigger system is very easy to work on your self . Watch a you tube vieo if you have to but no costly smith is needed.

    I dont know what kind of cluster duck you have going, just have a lightening trigger assembly installed.

    Im under 2# with a Glockworx connector, comp spring kit and a polish.

    My g20 with ghost 3.5 is 3.5. I'd have him try another connector.

    UNLESS you have a NY spring installed.

    How do you measure the trigger pull to know what you have?

    Some people are just that good, but there is a device, kind of looks like a cell phone with a hooked rod stocking out if it, hook it on the trigger, pull till dry fires.

    Thanks for the replys. I have two glocks, 9mm & 40 cal. I bought them new & they are not carry guns. Just range guns. My smith says it is 3.5 lbs but it ain't. I have a testor and know 3 lbs when I have it anyway. He won't do anymore than put the 3.5 lb in. They were almost 7 lbs now the are 5 lbs pull with the 2.5 connectors in them. The smith only charged me $7,oo to install the first 3.5 and I installd the alleged 2.5 ones because my smith wouldn't do it.
