Do Ti firing pins make Glocks more prone to light primer strikes?
If YES,will a + power firing pin spring help if there is such a thing?

Yes there "could" be an issue with a light primer strike however that rarely happens. This is because the light weight (titanium) striker does not carry as much energy as the standard weight striker. Should you decide to invest in a titanium striker you will need to prove it with a few hundred rounds. If there are any failures you can always install a 6lb striker spring.

Some of the best triggers available employ the titanium striker. The question is, do you really want to go that far? (they are EXPENSIVE) You can build an excellent trigger by simply installing a 3.5 connector, 6lb trigger spring, 4lb striker spring and a LWD Ultimate Trigger Stop. If you want to take the trigger job to the outer limits you can install a titanium striker & titanium firing pin safety. My advise is to start with the cheaper stuff (as listed) and work your way down the line. Stop when you are satisfied!
