Glock 34 trigger pull

Just got a new Glock 34 Gen 3 with some additions:

Competition spring kit
Titanium safety plunger
Lone Wolf 3.5 lb connector
13 lb slide spring with SS rod (only shoot my own not-so-strong reloads)

While the trigger pull is very smooth and probably is around 3.5-4 lb. I find the is no clear point where you know its just a tad from firing, or is this just the way Glock triggers are, even when tuned? Kinda like pulling your finger through butter and then bang. Totally different feeling from my SIG 226. Do I just have to practice and get used to it?

This is good!:D Do not care for triggers that stack, or change as you pull.

Glock triggers can be made marginally "better", but Glock triggers are still Glock triggers no matter what you do to them.

Any trigger that changes as you press it is a distraction. In fact, I want the trigger's final release to be a total surprise every time. When I anticipate, I sometimes flinch.

Try installing a 5.5 # connector.

I own a pile of Glocks but do not like the 3.5 connector and have replaced all of them with a standard 5.5 connector. The standard pull will eventually wear in and result in a crisp, discernable break-point.

Good luck

I recommend installing a Ghost Inc. Tactical connector. The best way to descried it is to say that is is between the standard connector and the minus connector as far as pull weight is concerned, but feels much more responsive. Then I would do a good $0.25 trigger job on it (fluff and buff the mating surfaces of the trigger bar, connector , and plunger. You can then buy lighter striker springs and heavier trigger springs and try them til u get a combo that you like. Just be aware that tweaking springs can lead to light strikes.

Another option is to order another trigger bar with smooth face trigger with the Ghost Tactical. Drill a hole ( you will need a drill press and good bits for this) slightly above the trigger spring hole. Take some flitz and polish the trigger bar. then use the new hole to hook in your trigger bar spring. This is said to drop up to 8 oz. Off the trigger pull weight. Seen some say that this can cause issues in some guns, but I haven't had any yet. Or, you can just order a Vanek trigger bar for $85 and use it with the tactical connector and +/- springs.

As always, YMMV and any mods you do to your firearm you do so at your own risk.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Today (2nd day of owning the new 34) after just 3 or so dry firings the trigger would not reset...just sit there in the rear position. Racking the slide would not do anything. I would have to pull the trigger forwards to be able to 'fire' again. Well, I figured the culprit may be the Lone Wolf connector that seems to cause a lot of trouble according to some posts. Turns out the one Glockstore had installed was the polished version, not the newer coated kind. Luckily I had a Sherer 3.5 lb connector which I planned to put in another Glock I own. Could not have done the switch without the really detailed video Glockstore has on its website on how to change a connector. And low and behold, problem solved. Trigger pull is also subjectively somewhat 'better' than before.

If you want a crisp and predictable trigger break, don't lighten the connector. Stock 5.5 lb Glock triggers are very predictable. Lightening it makes the area where it breaks longer and less tactile.
