If your "45s" are M1911s they probably have the long trigger in them. The Army discarded this trigger circa 1926 at the same time they added the arched mainspring housing. Both changes made for easier accurate shooting. The M1911A1 trigger is the "proper" trigger although it's so short it can't be purchased with fancy holes or other designer patterns in it. :wink:

DA triggers need more trigger movement to perform the cocking function. We're stuck with those mechanics. DA/SA triggers go into SA mode after the first shot. The trigger reset points on my HK45C-LEM, M1911, and M92G are all at the same length. (Visual inspection, not calipers!) The longer pull distance is only the DA first shot with the DA/SA Beretta. The HK45C would be the same distance except the LEM trigger effectively removes this long pull as the very light first stage or slack comes out of the trigger as soon as the pistol is out of the holster and pointing down range. It's there but gone by the time the sights align. With all three just release to reset and send a second round.
