    Need small firearm with light trigger pull...

    I have the LCP right now, and the trigger pull is SO heavy (8 pounds I believe) -- it makes accuracy difficult, especially when trying to fire very quickly, and in a stressful situation. I really like the triggers on the 1911's, I can fire off several rounds in almost under a second...are there any small firearms available (about the size of the LCP) with a trigger like the standard 1911's? The closest I've found is the Cold Defender, but it's still a tad too heavy/bulky for the pocket carry which I really like.

    Thanks very much.

    Might want to take a look at the new SIG P238. I got my hands on one at the NRA convention this weekend and I think it would fit the bill! Not sure when they come out but im sure someone here knows.

    You will have to resolve yourself to a "QUEST", but you absolutely cannot go wrong with a Colt Mustang.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    That Sig P238 is a neat looking pocket gun. I'd like to see one side by side with the KelTec P-3AT.

    They are out there, but the LCP or 3AT sure isnt it. The new wonder Sig probably has potential, but I havent messed with myself to be ablle to tell you for sure.

    I have a J Frame with a Wolff spring kit, its very slick! Also, the Kahr's trigger isnt exactly light, but they are much more smooth.

    Are those spring kits hard to install and do they lighten the trigger or just smooth up the action?

    try a bersa 380 CC , double and single action trigger, but a tad bigger and heavier than the Keltec P3AT, which is what your LCP is an almost exact copy of.

    Wow, looks very intersting! (The sig) I certainly hope different grips will be available -- when is it set to be released, anyone know?

    On a side note, I found this Colt Defender...who wouldn't want to get this for their wife, what a beauty. Colt Ceramic Mustang .380 HER 005 of 100 NIB : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com

    If you can find a Colt Mustang it will do what you want though it is still a tad larger than an LCP or KelTec. The new Sig everyone is talking about would be good too if it can be found is really is a Mustang clone.

    I'm unfamiliar with the Bersa 380 compact model.

    Is this new Sig not smaller than the Colt Def? The pictures of the Sig makes it look smaller...

    Might be showing my ignorance here, but doesn't someone make an itty-bitty 1911?

    Have you checked out the new Walther PK380?

    8lbs is not a heavy DA trigger pull, the size of the gun and grip are probably making it seem like more than it is. An LCP/P3AT/P32, while small, light, and convenient, is not an easy gun to shoot and I'd never recommend one for a beginner. What I would suggest is a small revolver with an exposed hammer like a S&W 637. They are small and light (15oz), can be fired DA or SA, and the actions can be lightened with different springs and easily slicked up by a competent gunsmith. A snub nose revolver is still a handfull and requires plenty of practice but is much easier to learn to shoot well than a tiny auto. Plus they are not subject to limp wristing, magazine issues, FTF, FTE, etc.

    Tell you what I did is I got one of those Nagant revolvers before I got my LCP. Once you can hold the Nagant steady while you pull that heavy trigger, the LCP feels like absolutely nothing. I didn't plan it out that way but it sure worked well.

    The LCP's trigger pull isn't great but really isn't *that* heavy. You should be able to resolve this with practice, training, and possibly improving grip strength.

    Am I wrong to say that it's impossible to shoot the LCP as fast as one could shoot this new Sig, or one with a similar trigger?
