Once cocked, it only requires ~1.5 lbs to keep it cocked.


A 3.5lb trigger in not that hard for the index finger to pull. how is 3X that (over 10lbs), considered "excessive" force for three fingers to pull?

No, mid 20s.


My wife has no issues with the P7, she's 55.


Some local old timers I've let shoot the P7 are in their late 60s and early 70s, none have mentioned any issues, just gripped it and ripped it.

I had no idea the age of the woman until you mentioned it. If ANY woman can pull the DA trigger of a Sig P6 (~10.lbs), she would have no issues with the P7 grip cock lever.
