There is no SA trigger on the QA - it ios the same every shot, and rather heavy. For pure target shooting, the A/S is better.[b said:Quote[/b] (titan7 @ April 05 2006,5:43)]Just for informal target shooting. Is the Single action trigger on the QA better than the AS?
Whoa... Although I see your point, in the case of my P99, as opposed to my Sig 226, I can and do consistently shoot very well on that first long action or DA shot... I have been very impressed with it, so much so, I often uncock it just to shoot it in the DA mode... Your generalization does not fit the profile of my personal shooting experience with the P99. In fact just today I burnt 200 rounds practicing slow double taps so half the rounds I shot were from the DA position. I did just as good on the first shot as I did on the follow up in the SA mode. It's actually one of the reasons I like the P99...[b said:Quote[/b] ]SA is more accurate than DA. Case closed. Nobody will EVER argue the opposite. However, in stressful situations a trigger that changes behavior can throw a person off and can be difficult to handle.

You are quite correct. I also disagree with calling QA double action, because I wouldn't call a glock or xd double action, but somewhere inbetween DA and SA.[b said:Quote[/b] (stunksinatl @ April 08 2006,5:05)][b said:Quote[/b] (KorbanD @ April 08 2006,4:00)]Wait, before I head down that road, let me start off by saying that the QA and AS are both technically double-action only, not SA/DA like some people think.
I think this is incorrect... The AS would be classified as "traditional double action". Not, Double Action only like the QA.
... and the pull on the QA is ~7lbs, not 3.[b said:Quote[/b] (KorbanD @ April 08 2006,4:00)]The "detent" on the QA only buys you half a pull, it still functions (technically speaking of course) like a DA pistol, because you're still raising the hammer to striking position as you pull - not simply release the hammer. Having said that, it feels very much like SA because of the light (roughly 3 lbs.) pull required to discharge the weapon.
