Short Trigger on a Sig

So I finally got my Sig p239 to the range this weekend and I gotta say I'm still a bit unsure about the DAK trigger. Don't get me wrong, I love the gun but the trigger pull is much longer than Im used to.

I'll be the first to admit that my experience w/ handguns is very limited. I've gotten used to my Glock 23 for the past year... other than that I havent really spent a lot of time shooting any other pistols. I think the Glock has a 5.5lb trigger pull as opposed to the Sig's 9.5lb???

Anyhow, I found that while the muzzle flip was less on the Sig, but I was CONSISTENTLY missing my target LOW I know this is 99% mental / practice because I'm anticipating the BANG! but I would still like to look into somehow reducing the pull on my 239.

I have seen shorter triggers for the Sig and was curious if that may help reduce the trigger pull a bit? I plan on making it my primary carry gun so I'm not looking for a "competition" type job, just a small adjustment. Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas?

Thanks!

I have a short trigger on my 229 so my wife and 13 YO daughter can shoot it. I have a 226 and 229 both in .40 S&W and the 229 does kick less. I hope that helps.

Short triggers are great just make sure you buy a factory short trigger not one of the after market ones.

I am definitely not a fan of the DAK trigger, but to each his own. I am, however, a big fan of the short trigger (aka "combat" trigger for reasons unknown to me). Both of my Sigs wear short triggers.

P226:


P6:


The short trigger is fairly easy to install, but if you have never done it before you will need to follow these instructions: http://www.gunsmoke.com/guns/sig_trigger.html

(these instruction should work for most Sigs)

Oh, and btw...my P6 wears an "aftermarket" short trigger with ZERO problems. I dont know what CCR is talking about.

The short trigger will not reduce the length of pull, or the weight of the pull. It is a thinner trigger, that has the effect of moving the trigger back, a little, so that the reach is not so far.
I tried one on my 239, and it did not work well for me. It made the single action shot way too short, but you won't have to worry about that with the DAK trigger.

Short triggers

My short triggers are CNC machined just for the P6 and are a direct drop in no gun smith required part. I also now have skeleton triggers. And there is a free installation video on the sight. My 9 year daughter installs and tests triggers for me before they leave. So if she can install it at 9 years old, I am sure most of you can install one after watching the video.

Short Triggers run $55 for factory black for the P6

$65 for plated

$85 for Skeleton Factory Black
$95 for Skeleton Plated Triggers



Electroless Nickel Boron Nitride Plating applied to the trigger



Short , Medium and Factory Triggers for comparison.



Here is a black Chrome one installed in a RTT gun I refinished and sold recently.




If you guys have any questions about the triggers, just email me. I am the only one manufacturing aftermarket TRUE triggers, not cobbled up ground down made to work triggers. These are CNC machined specifically for the P6 and P225 by myself. To date well over 200 triggers sold.

Thanks everyone
Todd

Have a P239 with short trigger

I have a short trigger on my Sig P239 - I bought it used and it came that way. My other two Sigs have conventional triggers. I find that I can use either type comfortably, but the short trigger makes for a slightly reduced reach for the trigger finger, if you like that.

^^ They are two separate things. Short Trigger = shorter trigger. Short Reset Trigger = shorter reset. Sounds simple when explained like that, but they are easily confused for some reason or another.
