The HK USP/USPc with the LEM trigger is the only one I can think of....

The FNP-45, but not the USG version I have with the cocked-and-locked safety.

Ruger P345, but I'm not sure about the "no safety" requirement. Are they offered with only a decocker? That would be as close as Ruger gets.

Oh yeah, they do come with a mag disconnect safety that turns normal people in to savages.

Ruger P345 is avaliable with a decocker only. They also made the P97 which had a decocker only.
The Sig P250 is DAO and meets your other requirements.

the Beretta px4 type D which comes in a 45acp satisfies all of the requirements and is a wonderful gun.

Why?

Do you want one? For carry? Home defense? Range fun?

I have the Ruger P97. It seems to fit everything you listed, except you said DA-mine is DA/SA. Do you want DAO or DA/SA? You didn't identify.

BTW, my Ruger P97 may not be much to look at, but I'd have no problem staking my life on it, even if it had sat for 4 years without being fired [just normal clean/oil every 6 months].

Other good guns listed as well.

jmstr,

Don't know if it was an after edit but the OP did say DA, which I take to mean DA/SA. As the other poster said, the P250 is the closest I can think of, besides the USP.

DAO not DA/SA

FNP-45 is DA/SA with manual safety and the Ruger P97 is DA/SA with a decocker.

I forgot about the Sig P250 and didn't know they made a Beretta Px4 Type C (gonna have to look at the Beretta)......that looks to be the only ones besides the USP with LEM trigger.

Px4 storm

My first self bought handgun was the px4 storm. Mine was in .40 S&W awesome weapon. Wish I still had it but babies are expensive. I would be interested in another one. Trying to get my safe full again.

Hoytinak,

If you can find it, the Ruger P97 did come in a DAO version. Mine is the more common DA/SA version.
