Glock NY-2 Trigger Spring and OEM 3.5 Connector?

Has anyone ever done this mod? I know the NY-1 trigger spring and the OEM 3.5 connector roughly mimics the stock trigger pull weight, and I've heard the NY-2 trigger with the stock connector has been described simply as "awful", but I'm wondering if the NY-2 trigger spring and the 3.5 connector makes for a decent trigger while still being a little heavier than stock.

Thanks in advance for any input from those that have done this...

Some people like it, the Missouri Highway Patrol used it for some time (and may still, not sure) so it has more than kitchen table credibility. Gives a very firm takeup at the start all the way through the pull, with a very strong reset. Some have described it as more "revolver like". Not sure I would go that far though.

I tried to like it, as I do think the NY trigger spring is more reliable, but just never fell in love with it, and ended changing mine back to stock.

They NY-1 and 3.5 connector was the worst combination I ever tried. Probably worst trigger I've ever felt on a firearm. Mine was on a Glock 19. Just the LW 3.5 connector was perfect. 4.5 lb. trigger measured on a Lyman scale, crisp break like factory.

But, these are Glocks we're talking about, and I've had three different guns that had significantly different trigger feel using the same connector.

A buddy (who's a Glock armorer) just popped 'em in for me...feels kinda similar to my LCR's trigger. Planning to go shoot it sometime soon...

One of my duty Glocks had the NY-2, and the other had the NY-1, both with 3.5# connectors. I could tell the difference, but they both shot the same for me. (Being used to DA sixguns, even an NY-1 with a standard connector felt quite light and easy.) If I recall correctly, there was a temporary local shortage of the NY-1 when I was setting-up those Glocks, in early 2002, so I took the one I could find, and intended the NY-2 to be temporary, but ended up leaving it inside the pistol. (I work for an agency that does not issue duty pistols; we buy our own, within guidelines.) I preferred either an NY-1 or NY-2, with a 3.5# connecter, to the standard connector and spring.

To be clear, these were Third-Generation; I do not know about setting-up Fourth-Generation Glocks; there may be something different about the connectors?

I sold these Glocks in 2005, after switching to a DAK SIG duty pistol.

Funny this should come up as I just performed this test over the weekend.

I hated it.

There seems to be more 'play' in the trigger mechanism inside the gun, and my trigger didn't want to lock back when dry firing. I checked twice, and I'm almost 100% that I installed it correctly.

Back to stock for me...

I just can't view as favorable anything to do with firearms that has anything to do with NY. If it's not against federal law for folks other than New Yorkers to use Glocks with NY connectors, then it should be! ;) Why would anybody, other than a New Yorker, want a revolver-like trigger on a semi-auto?? :eek:

Why not just use the standard connector and the NY1 spring if you want a heavier pull?

IF you're a masochist, wouldn't it be better to just poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick? :cool:

The reason why people go with the NY1 / 3.5 Connector combination is because they don't want a heavier pull. They want the same pull, but with a smoother action and a more responsive reset. Also, the NY triggers will last damn near forever. Not so with the standard Glock trigger.

You're going to get a heavier pull with a NY1 spring and a 3.5# connector...well, it'll be heavier than the factory 5.5# connector and spring yield.

I've shot several hundred thousand rounds through my Glocks. Never had a Glock "trigger" fail, yet. I do use aftermarket connectors in all my Glocks. My Glocks' triggers pull from 2.5# to just under 4#, depending on the combination of springs and connectors I'm using at the time.

I am a firm believer in te STOCK trigger that Glock issues.

It is 5.5 pounds as I have been told.

I bought a NYC issue model 19 and the trigger was horrible,had a Glock armorer set it up as factory and I am happy.

I do have a G-35 set up for target shooting with my agency - but that is set at 3.5 and is not a carry gun.

Theoretically, it will be the same pull as the stock trigger. In reality, it was a bit heavier for me.

The stock Glock trigger spring definitely has a shelf life on it. They've improved it, but it's still predetermined. And, it is definitely shorter than any of the NY triggers.
