There's really no set answer to your question.
Pistols and revolvers are available in many designs, and they can be quite different.
There's striker fired ones, that usually have a distinct takeup and reset.
There's double/single actions as well as double action only.
There's single action only, like 1911s, Browning High Powers and others.
All with hammers and firing pins instead of strikers.
They can have the long takeup and short reset positions of the trigger - or not.
It varies from design to design as well as between individual guns.
As for 1911s, I've run across them with absolutely no takeup.
And others that have a lot of takeup and a short reset, as compared to the total trigger travel, almost like a striker design.
No telling without trying them, sometimes.
Did this answer help or add to the confusion?
