The only reason I can see for buying a DAO is if it is ONLY a night stand gun. Don't want a light trigger when you are fumbling for it in the dark. Even in that scenario an AS(DA/SA) would be almost as effective if left in AS(DA) mode.DAO, which is an abomination unto autoloaders.
You really can't effectively ask this question, what's good for me may be the worst choice for you. If you can't test fire a AS and QA trigger, then at least try to dry fire one of each and that will help you decide. If you can't find one of each to try, which is understandable, then you really will never know which one you want.So I'm finally going to buy my P99. Which type of trigger should I get?
It depends upon the primary purpose for the pistol. Target shooting or self-defense? A bunch of SD guys would tell you to get the pistol that has the same trigger pull every time...So I'm finally going to buy my P99. Which type of trigger should I get?
So it sounds like forget DAO.
AS if you are used to DA/SAs like PPK.
QA if you are used to Glock, Steyr, etc.
That's unbelievable, especially given the fact the S&W's customer service is as good as anyone in the industry (and far better than most everyone else). It also might explain why so many of us have had such a &*#$^#*^$ hard time getting our hands on a PPS, even for a simple look-see.I thought one way to try out the different triggers in person, would be to go to Smith & Wesson's own range and use their "Try a Gun" program (it would be little more than an hour away for me), but one phone call and I was told no Walther products are included in the program. You would think if S&W is marketing Walther's guns and S&W has their name stamped all over the things, they would be included in the rest of their marketing efforts. Any chance requests from a number of Walther fans might change that?
Good idea. There's nothing like in-person contact to get heard. From the discussions here (and your excellent video, BTW), I'm 99% sure I want a 9mm AS, but it would be nice to try one first.Call around to your local stores to see if the S&W rep will be coming in any time soon. This was how i was able to try out the P99; the rep had a -ton- of S&W and Walther samples with him.
Of course, after shooting 20 rounds I took it back to the rep and bought one.
