    Ok...I'm considering a baby Glock 9mm. But...my only concern is the light trigger. Is there a way to make this trigger more like a double action revolver? Is there a particular spring # or brand I should look for? How much is a reasonable price?

    you want a higher weight trigger? Yes, I think you can do that. You can buy a aftermarket disconnector and install it yourself. Very easy to do, and there are lots of links around to sites that give you a walkthrough of the process. Either the "NY" or the "NY+" disconnector should give you what you need. I think the "NY+" is around 9 pounds. The factory is around 5#.

    I just changed out the springs in my G19.

    I used the 5lb connector with a NY1 spring. Firms up the first stage of the trigger and adds a little weight to the second stage. Reset is more positive too. I had an 8lb connector which was quite heavy on the second stage, but didn't affect the first stage at all.

    Here's a link that will break down all the trigger options:

    Get the olive colored NY trigger spring. They are super cheap and work great. I have one in my carry Glock.

    i put a NY-1 trigger spring in, plus a scherer 3.5 lb connector in my glock 19. total: about $14 from glockparts.com

    this will give you a great "revolver like" trigger pull. heavier than the standard pull too.

    you can leave in the stock 5.5lb connector with the NY-1 spring, but this makes the pull exceedingly heavy.



    if you need any assistance doing it, you can pm me or reaper (i tought reaper all he knows about glocks :eek: ;))

    I've run that setup for awhile, though mine was a Glock OEM 3.5 (I think they call them 4.5# now) connector. I also took the spring out of the NY-1 housing, to lighten the second stage even more. Ended up not too much heavier than the standard pull, but a lot more even. Works well if you prefer a revolver-like feel.

    You really don't have to worry about the plastic thing breaking, it lasted forever for me. And even if it did break, Glocks will actually work fine without any trigger spring at all, for a single magazine, as long as you're actually shooting the gun and not dry-firing it. The trigger will only fail to reset after you reload.

    Nowadays, I have an increased power trigger spring plus an 8# connector. Lots of takeup, then a very short, reasonably crisp break about on par with a plain jane 1911 trigger.

    I recommend buying stuff from Lone Wolf. http://www.lonewolfdist.com/

    Avoid glockmeister at all cost, worst customer service in the industry.
