    Post Why Single Action, Double Action Pistols Don't Get The Love They Deserve

    If one looks at the pistols developed in recent years, one could get the impression that the single-action, double-action pistol is on it's way out. Why bother, some say, since the striker-fired (technically a striker gun is more of a hammerless SA, but whatever) design is so much easier to operate?

    As it happens, there are a lot of devotees of the SA/DA trigger format, for a number of reasons. Not everyone is a fan of the Glock safety or rather the integrated trigger safety of the profusion, plenitude and plethora of striker-fired guns that only have an integrated trigger safety..

    Personally I love the DA/SA setup like the FNX series. Carry my FNX9 daily. Nothing against the striker fired pistols (love my FsN), but for daily carry I prefer the DA/SA.

    Not everyone is convinced of the superior reliability of primer strike by a striker either.

    A lot of the problem people have with them is that the manufacturers design crappy triggers in the DA mode. It is very hard to find one that has consistent weight of pull throughout its travel. Most stack up or fall off at the end causing the shooter to push or pull the trigger and miss badly. I have two pistols, a Sig P226 Legion and a CZ SP01 Shadow Target, both of which have triggers that are a thing of beauty in DA and SA mode. Consistent all the way through the pull. Sadly neither of those trigger groups are factory stock. Both have gone through a custom shop. It is disappointing no one will put a good trigger in an off the rack pistol.

    Beretta 92 series with the OEM D spring is excellent in DA.
