Hey guys,

I recently traded my Sig 239 da/sa for the SAS model in .40 s&W. I traded it because the DA/SA hammer would jam me in the belly with my preferred carry style of Smart carry (crotch carry). After going to the range several times, I think I hate the long pull of the trigger. :aargh4: Every thing else I love about it, but I have to really focus on accuracy due to the long trigger pull. I really like sigs, my fav carry piece is a Sig 232. I also bought a full size XDM in .40 and I really enjoy shooting it, it is a natural pointing shooter for me. I was considering trying to stick with one type of trigger pull and going with either a 4" XD in .40 s&w or even the subcompact in .40 cal. .

My initial reaction to XD subcompact is .40 S&W in a 3" gun seems a little crazy handful of inaccuracy. Is this true?

Try utilizing the short reset point on the DAK. It made a HUGE difference for me when trying to adjust to the new trigger.

+1 on the DAK as well. I have it on my 239 (9mm) and don't ever want to go back to anything else. It did take a while to get use to the trigger reset, the travel is still pretty far on it, and it's easy to miss. But 2500 rounds in a 5 day class took care of that, I know it like the back of my...hey, is that a new freckle?

J/k. It takes a while to get used to, but I think it's absolutely wonderful!

I should mention I love the smoothness. I don't know if it's a Sig thing or a DAK thing or what, but it's close to the same feel as a friend who's had theirs polished! Everyone agrees once you get used to it, it's really great!

To me it's a SIG thing.
I have a 239 SAS gen II DA/SA SRT and a 220 DA/SA, and I love the smooooothness of both.
I've never shot a DAK though so I don't know how they compare.

o in other reason, keep practicing and Ill like it? I sure hope so. I hate the idea of switching, I have my fav holsters, 3 mags, it is such a sweet looking gun. I have obviously not mastered the short reset yet with so few rounds through. I would say that the short reset is a lighter pull but it is still long. I will likely hang onto it and keep trying.

If you want a much better trigger send it to Sig. For 100 bucks they will slap a da/sa short reset trigger in it like they are putting in the Gen 2 SAS pistols...I personally couldn't get used to the DAK trigger.

Try to devote a lot of shooting with your DAK including dry fire and don't shoot or compare it to anything else... I'll bet you come to love it and can then switch around to different weapons without any problems. :wink:

I have the XD 40 SC and love the gun. I am no great shot by any means but shoot IDPA with it and do pretty well. The trigger is not so bad and the recoil is not either. The only reason I think of a full size anything for IDPA is the longer sight radius, but my scores have been so good so far that I haven't pursued it. If I did go new I would look for a Sig.

Improving accuracy

I went to the range yesterday and took my .22 rifle for practice my Rifleman score. But I also FINALLY found some practice ammo for my Sig 239 SAS w/ DAK trigger. I kept practicing and slowed down and really focused on my trigger follow through and my accuracy really improved. Shocker right? Once again I am reminded it is about proper form. It didn't feel like I was fighting it too much, but I think I got irritated that my accuracy suffered w/ such a long trigger when I was really used to the sa shots. I will continue to dry fire and practice for 2 months and then revisit the issue. :danceban:

That is if I can find more practice ammo that doesn't break the bank. :rant:
