    This was a suggestion I read on another forum with the 43. I'm sure the heavy trigger is just confirming that I need to work on trigger control and I'm jerking it a little bit. I'll get the connector updated then re-assess. The armorer I spoke to said it reduces trigger pull by about a pound. Some of the posts on the forum suggested that the new connector made trigger pull much smoother in addition to being noticeably lighter.

    If that doesn't get me connecting with my point of aim, I'll try changing where my finger contacts the trigger...want to change one variable at a time. I'd really prefer if all my triggers were the same so that I don't have to consciously think about how to pull the trigger.

    I dont know if that means it has the older connector? All my glocks feel pretty darn close to each other

    SIG P938 will resolve these issues if other methods with the 43 don't work for you. Trigger appears to be the issue with the 43 for me and I don't carry any more.

    To each his own. I shot my buddies sig938 side by side with a stock g43 a couple weeks ago and wayyyy preferred the glock in all regards. Grip and feel of Ergos (sig grip with flush mag is tiny and does not feel like something you can really grip). Muzzle flip was much more noticeable in the sig938 (probably being smaller overall with hardly a grip). External safeties are a no go for me, so that also rules out the sig. To me (personally) the sig 938 is like a novelty gun. My buddy however, he luvs it.

    If you bought yours a year ago, you probably have the original connector. From what I read, Glock introduced the new connector sometime this summer around July. The update is only for the 42 and 43. One post suggested that Glock got a lot of complaints about the heavy trigger for these models (more so than the usual complaining about Glock triggers) and revised the connector design to reduce the pull.
