Yeah or Nay?

Why.



I had the chance to dry fire one today. After racking the pistol and pulling the trigger it was like butter. After the hammer dropped and I tried to pull it again the thing felt like a 50lb trigger? Can someone explain this to me?

How does this work. Problem for double strike?

Thanks

Nay, cuz I was there too and that trigger was so heavy it must've been designed by a lawyer!! And I thought the trigger on my USP40f sucked.

To reduce the trigger pull, the LEM trigger precocks the hammer spring when the slide cycles. If you had fired a live round, the slide would have cycled and the trigger pull would have been the same. The trigger pull was heavy (regular DA to give the LEM trigger a double strike capability) because the hammer spring was decocked when you dry fired it. It is not a problem for double strike; it is the double strike. If you dry fire, say, a Glock, you can't dry fire it again without cycling the slide.

The LEM trigger is explained on HK's P2000 (http://www.hk-usa.com/pages/Civilian/Handguns/p2000.html) page.

To my way of thinking it fixes 1 of the 3 main problems with the USP. Set up for the lighter trigger pull option, I can't imagine any better DAO system.
If I had to carry a DAO this would be it.
