Walther PPX trigger stacking

Does anyone know if you can "stack" the trigger on a PPX. The PPX is labeled as having a DAO trigger, but its a hybrid precocked hammer (like a SIG DAK... I think). Does anyone know if the trigger is similar to other DAO pistols?? I ask because I can't track one down in person.

IMO it reminds me more of an H&K LEM trigger, not DAK like at all.

I assume "stacking" the trigger means "staging" it? I.e., you pull most of the way through the stroke, stop to reacquire or verify your sight alignment, then finish the pull to fire the gun? I don't own this gun, but I've tried the trigger. It didn't occur to me to "stage" it, but I would say that the stroke, which is half, maybe even a third that of a DA/SA auto or revolver, is too short for this to be feasible.

Yeah, that is pretty much what I was curious about. I keep hearing rave reviews of its trigger but it's a DAO... Two things that normally don't go together. Which is what made me curious.

I have a DAK triggered P229. Got it for free.... Honestly thought I'd sell it right away as I hate DAO guns for the most part, but after a little shooting at the range, the DAK is my HD trigger of choice now.

Here is a very funny video that starts with "staging" a PPX trigger.

I have a PPX. It depends upon trigger pull speed. If you pull through slowly you will hit a subtle "speed bump" or stop. Once at that "speed bump", it barely takes any pull pressure to blow through it and the round is fired. It comes upon you so subtle, one may never be able to effectively use it as a stage to readjust POA, belch, etc. In other words, don't depend upon it being a rest stop.
Now if you pull with a moderate trigger pull speed, you won't even realize it's there because the PPX will have already gone bang.
The PPX is one of the best bargains on the market. Out of the box mine came in @ 5.5 ft lbs. And because of its trigger configuration, one would think it's less than that.

I have a PPX too. On my trigger I just pull right through. The pull is smooth and around 4.5lbs. if I had to guess. The reset is pretty short too. It might be a little odd looking but it's a very good gun.

Yes, I meant staging, thanks for the correction. I finally located a PPX at a distant store near my old college. I should have gone to them to begin with as they are the best shop in PA in my strong opinion. Anyways, the trigger allowed me to stage it nicely when going slow but the lightness will also allow me to shoot fast. I ordered a 9mm and also a SIG P250. With the deal I got for both, I can sell them well below retail and still make a profit.

Thanks for the help everyone
