    How about a thread on stock trigger pulls. I was having an issue with a new Steyr MA1 so I decided to dig out the gauge. While I had it out I measured a bunch of stuff. Here are the results.

    Ruger P95. Best stock SA effort of lot. 4.6 lbs. A little creep.

    S&W M&P. Very clean. 6.2 lbs.

    CZ40b. Horrendous creepy feel. 6.7 lbs. This one is definitely getting some trigger work done. DA was a respectable 10.5 lbs with no stacking...once you got past the crazy high initial break which was too high for my gauge to measure (I had to start from half cock to make this measurement.)

    Steyr MA1. All over the map. 7.1 to 11.5 lbs. The slower I pulled the more likely it was to "seize up." Inconsistent trigger pull is noted in the trigger tuning guide on the Steyr forum, including a fix. This one will be torn apart and polished before going to the range again.

    Taurus PT111. Much maligned trigger...especially the DA with it's long reset. Compared to most revolvers and DA autos it is fantastic. The SA was 6 lbs. The DA was an impressive 6.6 lbs. I would love this gun as a DAO.

    Bersa Thunder 380. A bit creepy 5.1 lb SA. Very impressive 9.6 lb DA pull...definitely one area where it embarrasses Walther and it's PPK.
