I was just curious, does ANYONE actually use an HK pistol in v 5 6 or 7 which is the long 12 pound DAO pull? I'm wondering why HK even lists these as varients anymore.

Guess it´s been ordered by some PD - HK wouldn´t make it at all otherwise. But once manufactured, the offering sure gets to the civil market as well, even if not realy desired. Think of Glock´s NY trigger, it´s the same...

well if departments are relying on weapons with a 12 pound trigger pull on every shot thats just a little bit scary in my opinion.

I have a DAO USPf in .40sw. To me, it has a very nice, SMOOTH trigger pull - smooth and steady - until the shot breaks. Plus it doesn't have all that loose takeup (I call it "slop") just as you start to pull the trigger.

A few times flying out the door at 5:30am, I've grabbed the DAO by mistake when going to attend a local IPSC match. It certainly is not the ideal gun for competition. It just took a little bit more focus to get those long 50'+ shots to score.

Given a choice between my DAO or a v1, I'll take the v1 anyday.

And a few traditional revolver shooter guys who turn to semi-autos do like the DAO option. Since it keeps them familiar with the DAO revolver pull.

Maybe it's just me but the USP DA pull is the worst DA pull I've ever experienced. Most revolvers I've fired didn't even compare.

To my finger, the DAO HK has a smoother pull than the S&W snubbies I have.

If my DAO was convertable to LEM, I'd do it. Alas, it's too old...

From my understanding it is for a contractual point of view for some large police departments that require the option for bidding purposes.
