Take note of Ghost Inc. They manufactuer the Ghost Standard 3.5lbs Connector, which is DIFFERENT from their Ghost 3.5 pounds. ROCKET Connector. The principal difference between the two is that their Rocket, Connector has a trigger control Tab, which they assert to also shorten the traveling of the Glock Trigger. I already owned and used the regular Ghost 3.5 pounds. Connector, and it did a good job of lightening the Trigger pull of my Glock.
Nevertheless, Later I realized that I not only wanted to lighten the trigger of my Glock, but I also have to shorten that, too, and that’s the reason why I chose to test on the Ghost Rocket Connector, as it claims to be capable of doing that. The Ghost Rocket 3.5 pounds. The connector also differs from the regular Ghost 3.5 pounds. A connector in that it while the former has been a change, the latter requires a minor fitting by the consumer. I just wanted to get the Rocket Connector and the Ghost Armorer’s Plate. However I couldn’t find anybody who can ship only these two things in the Philippines, so I simply chose to purchase the Ghost Rocket Trigger.
It consists of the following:
- Ghost Rocket 3.5 lb Connector
- 6.0 lb Trigger Spring
- 4.0 lb Striker Pin Spring
- Ghost Armorers Plate
- Ghost Armorers Tool
- Reduced Power Safety Plunger Spring
Installation kit for Glock GEN 1-4.
I purchased the kit from the Mounting Soluitnos Plus. It consists of the following: Pairing and Installation’. The first thing you should do so before installing the device, it to replace the factory slide cover with the Ghost Armorers Plate on the slide. The Plate is a slide cover that’s only half the period of the factory Slide Cover, and what it does is it gives an opening on the rear of the slide which enables you to depress the trigger bar if needed. This is necessary because while you’re working on the Connector, you might not be capable of releasing the Striker with the trigger, and if you’re unable to release “‘Striker,” then it’ll be harder for you to disassemble the gun.
To install the Connector correctly, you’ll have to file down a little on TCT, then install it, test it, fire it, delete it and start the cycle again and again. That is a TRIAL AND ERROR system and needs a whole lot of patience, and assembly and disassembly of the gun. When the TCT is long for your trigger, the gun won’t fire whenever you pull the trigger. You know that the fitting is performed when the Striker falls during Dry Firing. You need to remove only a small materials from the TCT before you assemble and test it. If you remove too much, the trigger won’t work correctly. I used an ordinary triangular metal file that was smooth purchased from a nearby hardware store to slowly document down the TCT.
It took me about 11/2 hours of work, to finally get a gun for shooting with a Rocket connector. In that time, I probably assembled and disassembled the gun about a dozen times, so you’ve to take the time and be patient about the entire thing. Once I obtained Rocket I connector, I discovered that the general journey of the trigger was shortened to probably around 50% of what it was before, largely as a result of the removal of the overtravel. You still end up with a two-stage trigger texture, however, the second step where the trigger breaks, is considerably shorter, and also together in the lack of overtravel, it is possible to keep your sights on target without a lot of wobbles.

But, I did locate one major problem, and that’s what I call Trigger Sticking, difficulty. This can be when the cause has a difficult time breaking or releasing the Striker. What happens is that whenever you pull the trigger all the way back, the Striker isn’t released, so you’ve exerted effort to release it. This slows down your capability to fire the weapon rather than speeding this up. It’s also quite bothersome in that I cannot seem to find the specific cause of the problem.
Just when I thought I’d solved the problem, he comes back outside again. I thought it’d have something to do with Striker Springs, and switching to a one has solved the problem for a while. However, it came once I disassembled/reassembled the cause assembly. Then I thought it’d something to do with the way you insert the cause assembly to the trigger housing, and it solved it for awhile. The dilemma is that I cannot recreate the problem again anymore if I don’t fit the assembly correctly into the housing. It appears to have gone away, and I do not know precisely what triggered it.
I can have to come back to this problem again in a later site when I pinpoint the problem. In any rate, if you experience this problem, it appears the solution will be to simply disassemble and after that reassemble the cause assembly, going by trial and error until it goes off. You might need to simply break the gun in for 100 or so rounds when it does not go away after disassembling and reassembling. Probably the internal tensions caused by the shooting of the gun will shake things up whatever is the cause, and keep it. I noticed mine seemed to move following shooting my first 100 rounds.
Altering the Trigger System Springs
I would suggest purchasing the entire Ghost Rocket Connector Kit, if only for the aftermarket springs which come with this. It is because I feel like OPTIMIZING the Rocket Connector, you’ll have to play with the Glock trigger system. After playing around with the spring sequences, I eventually came up with this combination. I find it to have the best balance with regards to precision during fast firing, but at the same time maintaining a reasonable quantity of safety with a trigger: – 6.0-pound Trigger Spring. – Silver Pin Factory Striker = 5.5 pounds.
Reduced Power Safety Plunger Spring.
Take note that the 6.0 lb. Though only half a pound heavier than the factory spring, it gives a feel, or break to the trigger. You may attribute this to its gap to the factory trigger spring. For one, it’s got a smaller diameter than the factory trigger spring, and yet is heavier. The Reduced Power Safety Plunger Springtime is also suggested. It can make the first phase Of the Glock trigger so light that it becomes a nonelement whenever you pull the trigger fast your goal won’t be thrown off as much.
Range Time’. The Rocket Connector lived up to its promise during firing. With it, I’m able to fire fast shots and maintain a vast majority of my shots in the target’s A Zone.
Here are sample pics of my target paper. The distance was at 13 meters, using 180-grain Semi Wad Cutter Teflon Coated reloaded towers, at a firing rate of approximately one shot per second. In comparison, I could never do the same with the stock Glock activate, not at the fast rate of fire, anyhow. And this is a video of me throughout the break-in of the Ghost Rocket Connector: Parting Shot’. I would have highly suggested that the Ghost Rocket 3.5 lb. Connector if not for that Trigger Sticking, difficulty, which remains a tiny puzzle to me. It has not come back, however, and maybe it’s only a problem of breaking in the machine. In any rate, when working correctly, The rocket connector will LIGHTEN and SHORTEN the Glock trigger. And due to the shorter break and deficiency of overtravel, it’s possible it’ll assist you to take the gun faster, but maintain fantastic precision.
In short: – Be patient when submitting a TCT, be ready to spend 1-2 hours to complete the work and assemble disassemble it about a dozen times. – I recommend buying the entire kit as you’ll have to use the Ghost Armorer Plate, along with the springs will provide you more options on how light or heavy your cause will be. – This Trigger Sticking, the difficulty is a piece of a bother, and you may have to undergo the period to eliminate it. Other Options’. A comparable effect of shortening that trigger pull and taking away the overtravel may also probably be realized using one of these Fulcrum triggers with the over and pre-travel adjustments as Glockworx makes, but they are much more expensive, starting in USD 150 as opposed to the Glock Rocket Connector Kit that’s only USD 41.
Ghost does provide a Ghost Tactical 5 pounds. Connector, that’s the same as the Ghost Rocket Connector because it’s the TCT, but at 5 pounds. Results in a trigger that is heavier, which makes it safer for daily Carry. Not sure when I shall try this out as I feel my setup is great enough.
