    Welcome aboard

    Some of these guys will hold class on that. I will just tell you what I have and the trigger pull....here is a long hard trigger= 11lbs...only down side to this gun.


    Here is a near perfect trigger IMO...7lbs but very smooth and short.

    Kahr PM9 - 3.0" barrel - ~7lbs.
    Kahr P380 - 2.5" barrel - ~7lbs.

    I'm going with estimates on trigger pull from a Google search. I have both and Kahr triggers are extremely smooth.

    I don’t know the exact weight by my Kahr CW40 has the lightest and smoothest trigger of any DAO I have tried.

    Light DOA

    I will say the same for my CW9. As read some where on this forum, the trigger is silky.

    Ditto on the CW9. Mine is longer but a lot smoother than my G36 ever hoped to be. You can get a 5# spring from Wolffe to lighten it even more but I have concerns about reliability and light primer strikes.

    A Para LDA will fit the bill. I do not know the spec, but I have owned one if you have a twitchy finger watch out.

    Given your parameters I'd have to say Glock 26/27/33.

    I know the Glock is not what we think of as a double action, but A.T.F. did in fact declare it as one, and that's good enough for me. The standard trigger is 5.5 pounds if I recall correctly.

    Any of the Para Ordnance pistols that have the LDA trigger. (Carry 9, Carry 45, ect). I don't own one, but have shot a a few and was surprised how light the trigger was. Felt like a lighter trigger than my Kahr MK40.
