    California trigger in my G22

    I just recently bought a gen 3 g22, I took it to my local gun shop yesterday to get a ghost 3.5 lb connector. I went ahead and had the tech there install it mainly because he is a certified Glock armoror and I wanted him to look over everything since I bought it used. He started to put the connector in and then he pulls out the trigger assembly and says that my gun had a California trigger in it. So he tells me that the 3.5 connector wasn't really gonna make much of a difference unless I went with a different trigger spring. I went ahead and went with his advice not really knowing. But after he got done that trigger felt 10 times better!! I really like it now, the reset is even better. But I just wanted some opinions on putting a different spring and replacing what I had. I honestly wasn't aware of the whole Cali spring and defiantly don't understand why this guy had one all the way in Missouri. Any thoughts are appreciated!! Thanks!

    This tech did mention a NY trigger was heavier than the Cali trigger.... But either way I m just going on what he was saying.

    no such thing as a cal trigger

    we can help but not sure what your looking for.

    my dad was a muffler, shock and brake man and I always asked him why and he said that is the biggest market with the least amount of work and people can feel the difference w/o feeling ripped off .

    I am mainly trying to see if replacing the trigger spring was the thing to do to get the best results from that connector? That's was he suggested, was that correct? And as far as the California trigger.. He put a aftermarket spring in but the piece that came out was a spring contained inside of a plastic wedge shape part. Sorry for confusion

    The trigger spring is a 5 minute job and its $3.00 for the spring. The factory trigger is 5 lbs. (pull backwards) and the new one is 6 lbs. does it make a difference... yes just a little bit but it’s the whole package that makes a difference or each part adds to less’en in the total trigger pull

    Ok that makes sense, but as far as what came out of mine was not just a regular spring. It was a plastic mechanism with a spring. ATTACH=CONFIG]876[/ATTACH

    the black is a little lighter OR the one glock offers, sorry not sure but they are close
    The NYC trigger takes the place of the trigger spring. the trigger spring aids in lighting the trigger pull and the NYC does the opposite
