Hi guys.
Does the DA to SA trigger pull bother you, and if so how and where?
I'm no world class shooter by any means, But the only time decent DA trigger cause me any problems is when shooting something like Bullseye shooing or shooting for accuracy groups.
But in shooting like the P99 was designed for, defensive or combat shooting. I just don't seem to have a problem with the DA first trigger pull. Especially when drawing an shooting. I mean, with the excitement, the adrinlin, target focus, quickness of the draw getting on target and the shots on it's way.
I've tried drawing and shooting both DA and SA first shots and from looking at the shot targets, I couldn't tell ya which was shot DA and which was SA.
I mean even with the Glock you really got 2 different trigger feels. There the full tigger pull like yu get from a trigger all the way released and the the short trigger pull you get from the trigger reset position.
Now I do see the difference with a long heavy revolver DA trigger, but can't on is P99. How about you guys? JB

I am not sure I understand what you mean about the Glock trigger. It is the same for every shot. The striker is held about 1/3 to the rear. Pulling the trigger carries the striker rearward to full cock then releases it. The rebounding slide resets the striker to the 1/3 level. As to the different triggers on the 99 I, like you, find no difference in presentation and firing from double action or single. The action itself is so smooth I can not tell which is better in my hands.

"Not if you only release the trigger to the reset point. Then the trigger travel is considerably lessened. "

I was not aware this was a safe practice. Neither I nor anyone I shoot with has ever done this on a Glock. While the P99 is designed with this in mind the Glock is not. That is why there are different weights of connectors, anywhere from 3.5lbs to 12lbs. I would caution against this.
I apologize profusely sir!! I indeed was thinking of something entirely different. After a good swift kick I now understand the point you were trying to make.
