I've run them all, and honestly can't determine a difference.Hi there,
I'm a new, 6" 422 Target, owner and I have been reading about some parts breakage with these pistols. Let me say, I'm not panicking or anything, but I did order an extra firing pin. There seems to be a common concern for that part at least.
While perusing the Numrich site, I see that there are three disconnectors listed, Standard, light pull and heavy pull. I know that the magazine disconnect has nothing to do with the trigger pull on this model. But is the trigger pull adjustable to some extent by switching out the disconnectors? Are they marked, so I can tell which I have? My trigger breaks very nicely, without any creep. But it is a little on the heavy side. I have read many posts that the triggers on the 422's are "nice" and "light". There is no description for the part, and I did a search on swapping them. I can find nothing.
In this case the disconnector "disables" the trigger/sear by pushing down on the trigger bar while the slide is opening/closing to keep you from firing the pistol until the slide is closed. There can be light, but negligible contact of the disconnector to the trigger bar while the slide is in battery, I always polish those contact areas to insure it's all smooth.
The only other thing I can think it affects might be the cartridge load, but I would think the recoil spring has more influence on that than the disconnector.
