    I picked up a Glock 21 & with all Glocks, I hate the trigger. I ordered the Ghost ultimate kit on eBay. What I didn't see prior to ordering is "For competition only". This is my new carry gun. Should I leave off any of the replacement parts for safety reasons?

    Are you asking if you should change your trigger in general?

    Just curious if anyone's had a problem with any replacement component provided in the kit & would suggest keeping that stock component installed.

    Ah got it. Sorry for the confusion. I'm not a Glock purist, so I'm all for changing out the trigger for your carry weapon. Why not make it as smooth as possible? Glock triggers are almost as bad as the M&P series.

    I'd look for a trigger that's specifically designed to be on a carry type weapon and go from there. Try the skimmer carry trigger @ www.glocktriggers.com. I've never had a problem with it.

    I am a bit of a nervous nellie when it comes to modification on a self-defense pistol. I am always thinking about what could happen in a trial if my choices are scrutinized.

    Changing sights is not a problem.
    Any well-known ammo manufacturer is fine.

    Pistol modifications are something a little different. I've chosen to upgrade my trigger connector to the 3.5-lb Lone Wolf and a stronger trigger spring.

    However, if a prosecutor were to question me about why I chose a trigger labeled "for competition only" I'd be very nervous about that line of questioning.

    Just my little, humble opinion.

    I agree. While I hate glock triggers I can work with them. I'd rather deal with the trigger pull than the questions of my motives when they discover replacement parts.

    More good info. I see what y'all mean about the legal issues. I haven't gotten it yet, though. Perhaps I could use just the connector which as far as I'm aware of doesn't have such a label. Any experience with the connectors?

    The reality is a good shoot is a good shoot. The competition only triggers can become an issue in a questionable shoot or accidental shoot. If I intended to put a round or 6 into a goblin, so be it. It really does not matter how heavy the trigger is.

    I have been told that if a 3.5 or lower trigger is used during self defense that its not illegal but the prosecution will have an easier time arguing malicious intent. That being said ghost makes a ranger tactical 4LBer I have installed in my g17. My trigger pull was tested at just under 4 1/2, for me the pull wasn't my issue I just desired a smoother travel which my smith was able to provide.

    It's always been my thought process that when I go to court for taking a life the prosecuting attorney will use ANYTHING he possibly can to make me look like a blood thirsty gun nut who gunned down the poor downtrodden criminal who was in my home. I leave my carry and self defense weapons alone. I chose Glock for both because they are NEARLY perfect out of the box. I don't know maybe I'm just being paranoid I just don't want to go to jail or owe some POS family 5 million dollars for killing him.

    People say you will get sued for everything. I am not saying do it, or don't do it. But it is like the carrying handloads thing. Does anyboy know of a single lawsuit for carrying a modified gun, or handloads for that matter. No hearsay, but that you actually know of. Not talking about what Bubba's girlfriend's, cousin's, dad told you.

    Well I just got the kit in. I only installed the connector, I'm satisfied :cool:
    The muzzle movement is almost completely eliminated. I'll save the springs for competition.

    I'm definitely not saying there has been any precedent set to justify my paranoia, I'm just saying I'm not comfortable handing the prosecutor any ammunition to use against me.

    Sweet! I bought the ghost kit myself and installed it in my gen 4 glock 23. I polished everything and its smooth as butter. Personally, I don't subscribe to the thought process that you have to have heavy triggers for carry. If you carry properly, and train, then you don have any issues.
