  1. I purchased the NP3 firing pin for my Gen3 and Gen4 G19s. The Firing Pin fit great on the Gen3 but felt a bit stiff in the Gen4. I had also exchanged the Firing Pin Safety and upgraded the Firing Pin Spring Cup to Maritime Cups. I reassembled the pistol and the trigger would dry fire but not reset. The second racking of the slide did no good to reset the trigger. Luckily I’m a certified Glock Armorer and know a work around for the frozen slide. Once the slide was removed I checked the FP and it was indeed stuck in place. I tried the stock pin and it moved freely. I tried the FP from my Gen3 but it too froze in place. I systematically replaced each stock part with the Suarez FP and each time the FP trade in place. The only item I have not tried is the Firing Pin Channel but if the stock FP works would assume the FP Channel is fine.
    I have not written to Gabe & Cheryl yet but will do so in the morning.
    Otherwise this seems to be a nice addition to an already great gun.

  2. So … it turned out to be the Ghost 3.5# connector. I swapped it out for a stock “.” connector (rated at about 4.5#) and it works fine. Who’d have thought, right? Suarez suggested trying a polished stock “-” connector (ratted about 3.5#) for the same pull as the Ghost but the Firing Pin will still work.

    And Josh at Suarez International was great about letting me know things to try and how to resolve the issue. Thanks Josh!!
