Thread: Glock Connector Design Question

  1. #1

    Glock Connector Design Question

    Mostly a "TIL" sort of thing I'm looking to figure out, but I've come up incredibly short on answers and my curiosity is getting the better of me.

    What exactly is the purpose of the little connector "hook" highlighted here in red?

    I can't seem to find any sort of documentation, cutaway footage of it in motion, or even just figure it out by looking at my Glocks. It doesn't appear to be a load bearing surface either. I'm assuming it interfaces with the trigger bar reset process, but I'm unsure exactly how.

    That tab is what the slide contacts during cycling, the connector bends and the trigger bar moves up to reset.

    What he said. I donít know what Glock calls it, but itís the portion of the connector that, in conjunction with a cam on the slide, provides the disconnector functionality. Itís what allows the trigger bar to pop back up when the slide moves rearward and to be in a position to capture the striker (and thus reset the trigger) when the slide returns forward. It is also provides the ďdisconnect safetyĒ that should prevent the gun from firing when the slide is out of battery.
