Looking for a suggestion as to what trigger I should put in my G-19. I retired from my job that mandated the NY2 trigger  without exception. I found that it was a detriment to my shooting, causing me to pull low/left. Not that I ever fail qualification, usually getting in the high 40's out of a possible score of 50,  but it was a fight with the gun. I just didn't do as well as I wanted to do. Now that I'm free from that restriction, I had the stock 5.5lb spring put in and ran about 200 rounds through the gun. Accuracy was great, without the low/left pull, but I felt the trigger was too light.  Perhaps that was just a perception on my part from since I was dealing with the super heavy trigger for 22 years.  Any suggestions from the more enlightened on here  on what might be a good combination of Glock OEM springs and connectors to use?  This is my primary carry and personal defense gun, the other being a Colt Detective Special which I'm fine with as far as my accuracy with.

1.  use the NY1 trigger for 8ish pounds. 

2.  Get used to the goodness that is the 5.5lb you have now

3.  Get a minus connector and love life.

Agreed. The minus connector is an automatic change on all of my non-agency Glocks. FWIW, I don’t find that it makes the trigger pull feel lighter so much as it makes it feel smoother. 

Exactly my experience. Might have taken a half pound off but the feel is remarkably smoother than the dot connector.

Seems to be the consensus that the NY1 trigger and the Minus connector is about the best option.  The guy at the range suggested it also, his reasoning being that it is smoothist pull for him and the lesser durability of the 5.5lb spring, which he claimed he had break on his gun in the past.  I guess I'll run another few hundred rounds through it  with the 5.5lb trigger and see what happens and if I still have an issue, try the NY1 and Minus connector for a while.

About the only thing I did to my Gen3 G19 was swapping the ejector for a Gen4 version. Ended my (legendary) run of 'Phase 3' malfunctions. I took 4 or 5 guns out of service that way.

as always, YMMV. But worked for me.

Low left has been an issue with me on Glock forever. It got more pronounced after a left side stroke.  I tried lightening the spring driving the striker-then I learned about insufficient force to ignite the primer.  I have one glock with the magical Zev trigger (it ain't so magical)  I alway wanted to put in an Apex trigger and I believe in them.  BUT and this is a big BUT what has worked for me is lightening the grip with my strong right hand and getting a better, stronger grip with my support (Weak left) hand and being sure to have that left hand thumb up pushing the frame to the right.  I think i was actually overpowering my support hand with the  death grip I  my righthand was taking and pushing/torquing the pistol down and left.  A software (me) problem as opposed to a firmware (trigger) problem.  Cheaper to work on grip issues rather than buying new triggers.   I still shoot a little left but it is center left and much closer ro aiming point. And that is the reason I shoot 25 rounds every stinking week. 

Well,  I went with the NY1 trigger and the "-" connector and it worked out really well.  Threw in the Gen 4 extractor like SGreen suggested for good measure and ran 300 rounds of 124 FMJ through it and it was enjoyable. Thanks to all for the input and thoughts.
