Just picked it up a couple days ago, AD code. First I noticed the perfect slide and barrel lock up, and the trigger was smooth and crisp. It has a long reset but the pull is much lighter than I expected. The test target and all five shots in the 10 ring at 25 meters.

At the range I started at about 13 yards and dropped the first 10 rds in about 1 inch, I couldn't believe it! Especially for a QA trigger. I went out to 25 yards and could keep them at about 3 to 4 inches which is good for my shooting skills. After 200 rds no failures of any kind with Sellier & Belloit.

I had been dissallusioned with the P99 a few years ago when I had one of the Smith & Wesson mfged 40's. That one kicked like hell and i could never keep all the rounds on an 8x11 sheet of paper. This new one is 9mm and has the lightest recoil of any 9mm I have shot. I picked it up for 450 from CDNN, definately worth the purchase. I hope I don't experience any of the trigger reset problems I have read about. So far the best hand gun I have owned!

Glad to hear!

I've found that the QA model has been the most accurate also. Both .40 and 9mm. I've had both triggers in both calibers, and both gave me the same results.......QA more accurate.

I have yet to try out a P990 DAO.

I have never seen a QA in person, but I thought its trigger pull was similar to the AS single action trigger pull.

Since you have both would you mind detailing the difference? I am about to get a second P99 in 9mm.

Thanks

I think the best way to describe a QA trigger pull is that it is in between the double and single action of the SA. Another way to describe it is it is like a short DAO. It is not at all like a single action. Unlike most DAO's, the pull does not stack much, or get harder through the pull. Technically it does get a little harder through the pull, but it is difficult to perceive the increase in pull weight from start to finish, and that is what I think is so good about the QA.

I hope all that made sense. The biggest advantage to the QA is that every shot has the same pull, and you don't have to worry about the transition from double action to single action. This is not to say that the SA isn't also exceptional. The single action of the SA is very light, crisp and very little reset length, unlike the QA which has a very long reset. I once shot an SA and got great accuracy with the single action trigger. I agree with the statement that the QA is like a light double action revolver with a shorter trigger pull distance.
