Wgat could have happened to change my Glock trigger?

The Sotelo trigger was like 2 triggers. It's like a little bit of spongy takeup and then I hit a wall. The second part of the trigger basically didn't budge, I had to increase pressure on it gradually and evenly and then - click it breaks, theres was no movement - it just would break.

I was dry firing it with Snap Caps and on the third pull - it totally changed.

1) It got easier to pull - the trigger definately breaks now under less pressure

2) I no longer reach a point where the trigger motion just stops - it continues to move backward.

I think I like the trigger this way better - I'm having more success keeping the sight picture the same with follow-up than I was before. But I really wonder, what the hell could have happened to make it change like that? I'm hoping I didn't break something...

Does the striker still fall, meaning will the gun go bang?

Maybe it just took a few trigger strokes for everything to wear in.
