I understand the OP's reservations but I will say that my P99 and LEM H&Ks have what I consider to be the 2 best carry triggers in existence followed closely in the #3 position by my Sig P229 DAK. They really are the perfect compromise between a light striker trigger and a DA/SA hammer trigger. The biggest thing is with these three trigger systems, despite their little differences with one another, is that practice is paramount. Now that I have become proficient with them, I prefer them.
I will say, I have a vp9sk with an ultra match spring kit in it.....love it
I also have a walther CCP with polished and modified trigger and sear components......love it
I am in the 7 day waiting period for my p30sk v1 lem, but from what i have handled of this gun, I beleive that I will love it too, maybe a little differently, but just as much as all of my children.😉😉
I went to the range today and brought my V1. My friend bought his V3. I shot the V1 better, especially on the first shot. Once you get used to a LEM, it's a good trigger.
Now granted mine was also a compact. One of the other reasons why it wasn't part of my major rotation was that the gripframe was really small for me, I didn't feel as confident in my draw, as I did with the chunkier sk grip frame.
My brother has this and accordingly, “The PPQ is the replacement to a problem that didn’t exist”. I agree and if I did pick up a striker, it would be the P99-AS/FS.
The P99 default carry mode is just that, Anti-Stress DA. Similarly, you carry an HK in SA with S-On (which I don’t even do with my USP9c, I carry it DA/S-Off).
Folks labor over the HK DA/LEM pull design. HK knows this, the first shot is the ‘stress’ shot. Practice/enroll in a timed combat/SD drill... What heavy DA pull? What long LEM pull?
Or heck, what is the problem flipping the S off on a 1911?
