I am a new member, I don't have my CCW yet but plan on getting it soon. I live in Northern Ca, up here in the sticks..
I had a question,
I plan on getting a Sig 229 in a .40, and one of the options is a DAK trigger.. i know that with out the DAK the trigger pull goes from 10 to 4.5 lb pull
and with the DAK trigger it is a constant 6.5lb pull
What do you guys like better. I don't know how to gauge the pull because i don't know what my current guns have.
does anyone have any opinions on the matter?
what exactly dosn't feel right?
I have the 220 Combat 45acp which only comes as DA/SA, I have not shot the DAK but I have been told it is similar to my wifes Kahr DAO. I prefer my DA/SA and being very inexperienced with handguns and no formal training I was able to get the hang for the DA pull pretty quickly, the SA pull is very nice! You can put your finger on the trigger when you are ready to shoot in SA and pull about 1-2mm back and feel the pressure and then pop, its off clean, very nice trigger action. The 10lb DA pull is heavy, but very smooth. It's all about consistently in your pull, a nice steady medium speed pull and it feels great. I was pulling my shots low left like crazy when I first bought the gun, almost adjusted the sights but suddenly I got more comfortable with it and stopped anticipating the kick, then everything was right down the middle.
You wont regret buying a SA/DA sig, they are flawless and reliable, the customer service is second to none! Oh and don't skimp, get the night sights as well!!!
I would (of course) opt for the DA/SA.

I like the DAK set up, but also prefer the DAO version to the DA/SA,, more than likely due to the fact in my department it was what was issued and only allowed for carry.. Like any SIG the more rounds you get down range the smooth it becomes,,for me the DAK is like shooting a revolver double action, but each to their own

Exactly! Coming from a revolver background, that's what I was looking for, and have been very happy with my DAK trigger system. It's the same every single time and I believe it helps in terms of "consistency" in motor/memory function, IMO.
In the end, it really just gets down to personal preferences, and whatever system you like or are used to, use that in confidence.
