Simply going to a Wolff "4 pound" firing pin spring and Glock OEM .4.5 pound (current factory terminology, formerly called a 3.5 pound) connector, and polishing up what's there gives me 3.25 pound trigger pulls in my Glock 19. The polishing, in my experience, really has no to very little effect on the actual pull weight, we do it to get rid of grittiness, not to lighten the trigger.
Like the previous respondent I prefer the non-serrated trigger out of the 17/34 to the serrated jobbie in the 19, and replace it as a matter of course.
Yes, going for the lighter firing pin spring CAN cause light strikes - but won't if you control the ammo, and the primers, you introduce into the gun.
Pride and fear are emotions, which hope for an outcome. Outcomes take your attention from the present, where the shooting happens, to the future. It is totally impossible to do anything in the future, because it hasn't happened yet. The key to shooting your best is to be present as the witness of the shooting. Do not judge, do not give yourself anything to live up to. We can only shoot as well as we have trained ourselves to shoot. To try to shoot only induces stress. Be content with your current ability. And accumulate practice to improve that ability. Consolidate, build strength where you feel weakness. We cannot raise our ability until we accept our current limitations. Practice dissolves limitations. Matches simply define where the current limits exist. The game of shooting is all about redefining our limits.
Amateurs do it til they get it right. Professionals do it til they can't get it wrong.
