I wanted to know if anyone knows what the trigger pull weight is when its decocked? The manual says 11.5 pounds double action, but since it's technically half cocked when decocked, I'm wondering what the pull weight is.

I am sure that they would test the weight from where the hammer rests on the catch. Why would they test it with the hammer on the firing pin? At no point of the guns normal function would you be pulling the trigger from that point, unless there was a light strike.

Also I don't think HK refers to a 'half cocked' position. I think in the manual it describes the position of the hammer resting on the catch with some tension on the hammer spring as 'double-action' mode, which is achieved by decocking the gun.

Good point. I think you're right. The only thing that made me think otherwise is that fact the Mark 23 is listed in the manual the same way. However, if you use the decocker on that gun, the hammer returns to complete double action with no tension on the hammer spring.
