But when you chamber the round and hammer drops doesn't it convert it to the lighter pull?When a round is chambered the hammer spring is in the cocked position, and the hammer is lowered automatically. The hammer stays in the lowered position until the trigger is pulled.
I'm no expert, but damn the LEM is confusing lolWatch this:
ETA: I'm confused, because I just read a post of yours that says you have a LEM in the P2000. I guess I don't understand your confusion on the way the LEM works.
That's what I thought, but no one has been able to confirm...guy at the gun store just said "hmmm that's a damn good question"I think what the OP is asking is how do you shoot the first round with an LEM with one in the pipe AND the heavy (DA-like) inital pull.
Answer is that you don't. When you rack the slide (or manually release) to chamber a round, the LEM is in the "light" pull mode. Because the slide will cycle, chambering a new round, the gun will always be in the "light" pull mode. In order to have the "heavy" pull, the hammer must drop and the gun NOT cycle. You will never have a round in the chamber with the "heavy" pull... just the mechanical nature of LEM.
The question "Why????" comes immediately to mind, but never mind; I probably don't want to know.It may not be possible w the LEM mechanism, but I'd love to see an LEM decocker w a heavy pull option.
It's just what I've always felt comfy w for IWC, I love the light LEM pull. I could never feel comfortable w one chambered.The question "Why????" comes immediately to mind, but never mind; I probably don't want to know.
If a heavy trigger pull is your desiderata, what you want, then, is an original USP/USPc DAO. You don't need no steenkin' decocker; it always returns to hammer down on its on, and takes two people to pull it.
