The Sig DAK Trigger Feel? Login/Join

I'm considering purchase of a P224. The DASA 9mm models have pretty well dried up, and the used market doesn't seem to be doing any better. So unless I want a 40SW (I don't), I'm forced to consider a DAK action.

The DA trigger pull on most Sigs is decent, but just a bit gritty unless it's had an action job. My Legion P226 has an amazing DA pull that is just perfectly smooth. Does the DAK come anywhere close to this?

I've heard it described by a couple guys as similar to a S&W revolver. But that seems unreachable by a pistol.

What do ya'll think?

It’s way better than a regular DA trigger. It’s partially cocked, so, much lighter and shorter.

It’s like a really good PPC Smith revolver trigger.

I started with revolvers so, it’s a natural fit for me. I have a P239 9mm. A P239 357 SIG and a P229 9mm.

I wouldn't call the DAK partially cocked. It's a safety intercept, not partial cock. No different than a decocked DA/SA SIG.

Maybe this article can describe the feel:

That article does help a lot. Thank you.

I've been trying to find a P224 DASA in 9mm for a couple of weeks without luck. But there are a lot of DAK actions on the market. I thought maybe I should consider that instead. After all, I have nine DASA Sigs. Maybe I should expand my horizons a bit. Smile

I guess it's safe to say that the DAK trigger is very comfortable for you.

I qualified with my 226 DAK yesterday. Man,I'd forgotten how nice that system is. I'm going back to it in all my guns. I was shooting about a 1.5 inch group. Probably not sniper material to alot of guys here but good enough for me. All this DAK talk lately has caused me to become a born again fan.

I have A Sig P220 Compact DAK purchased in 2007 and was not particularly excited about it being a DAK trigger. However, thought I would give it a try and now have learned to really like the DAK trigger. While not technically partially cocked as some have eluded to, it has has a leverage advantage in the trigger mechanism that makes it feel as if it was partially cocked. It is much lighter than the DA on my other Sig pistols including the Legion. I have no problem in shooting the DAK just as accurate as a DA/SA Sig.

If you like or are looking for a DAO pistol I really like the Sig P250c in 9mm . Trigger pull is around 6 lbs and pretty smooth.

I was considering a P224 Dak in 2016, Demo’d And opted towards an Hk P2000sk Lem instead. Kick ass little gun in 357Sig!

True enough. It is in the safety intercept. It is, however, much lighter and smoother than from the full hammer down.

It can never be in the full hammer down while actually loading and firing the gun (unless you have a hard primer) but, when dry firing, you have to get it back to the intercept to get the advantage of the DAK Trigger.

I haven't played with a DAK in forever, but that doesn't sound right. The only SIGs I'm aware of that don't return automatically to the safety intercept is the P230.
