C) a gunsmith needs to do it for legal reasons
Steeler, answering in order:
A) You'll feel a firm resistance at the beginning of the pull, instead of only at the very end when "the slack is taken up." A little like a double action only revolver or auto, but in two stages. Pull weight will be roughly in the 8-lb. range with a 5.5 lb connector, more likely in the 6-lb range when the NY-1 module is mated with the 3.5/4.5 lb connector, which is now a Glock-approved option for defensive as opposed to recreational guns.
B) Yes, same short return, and to a very slight extent actually faster since you have stronger spring tension returning the trigger to reset.
C) So long as the parts are properly installed, I don't think it SHOULD matter...and it MIGHT not matter...but if you want to take a belt and suspenders approach, it's a good idea to have the work done by a Glock-certified armorer or gunsmith. If nothing else, this gives you one more credible witness your defense team can call to the stand to show that you went "above and beyond" to prevent an unintentional discharge situation, and that you were responsible enough to literally hire a trained professional to make sure the job was done correctly.
