AS type trigger system. When striker is cocked, trigger in its rearward position, taking up the slack prior to striker let off produces a "click" that is both audible and very noticable with my trigger finger. The feel of the click is such that it feels just like when the striker releases to fire. I've also noticed that the short trigger pull is very inconsistent as to both feel and weight. I am confuzzed! One pull will be approx 5-6 pounds, recock the striker by retracting the slide for the next, it may feel like a 10 pound pull.
