    I've got a G26 and I'm going to go a 25 cent trigger job on it. Is it worthwhile to apply dry film lube to the trigger bar, connector and pin safety after polishing? I want to try this mostly stock setup for a while before I jump off the deep end and change connectors.

    I don't really know that dry film lube will make much of any difference. The "25 cent trigger job" will smooth the pull out a bit, but it's typically not a huge difference. Also, if you get a 3.5 factory connector, honestly they work just fine, are reliable, take all of 30 seconds to change out if you're already used to doing so, and will take .5-1.0# off the pull. Add a 6# trigger return spring and you're all set for a few bucks in just a few minutes. As far as the 25 cent job, I would just focus on polishing out the rough machining marks that are typically on most of the contact surfaces on the factory components, and apply a drop of lube to each spot. Regular gun oil honestly works just fine.

    That's exactly what I wanted to hear. I guess I was being a little hesitant because of the stories I've read about everything from multiple fires to being sued for modifying the gun. Thanks, SIG_Fiend, I guess now it's time to get to work. By the way, I'm planning on getting the LW connector. I'd opt for a dot connector, but the darn things are crazy hard to find.

    I have installed the extended slide button on a couple of my Glocks. If a person can do that much, can they probly install a new connector as well?

    I was able to beta test the apex safety plunger, for $20 something dollars it is well worth the price, cleans up the trigger and I didn't have a failure with it in over 2k rounds.

    If a person can tie their shoes then they have the mechanical ability to replace every part on a Glock. Their simplicity is what makes them so great.

    You would be surprised how much the trigger will smooth itself out after a few hundred rounds.

    That being said all of my Glocks wear the - connector, 6# trigger springs, extended slide lock, extended slide catch and extended mag catch.

    But they are all Glock factory parts.

    And yes they are all super easy to change yourself.

    It's a good thing you brought up the extended mag release because I was wondering if those had trouble being holstered. Is that a concern?
