    Will the D spring just improve the SA trigger or the DA trigger, or both. I would like to lighten the SA a bit if I can. It is a 92 FS. Thanks

    Slight change to the SA pull, but significant improvement to the DA pull.

    Noticeable change in both pulls.

    Most noticeable in lightening the DA trigger stroke

    It will take about 0.5lb off the SA pull, and about 3-3.5lbs off the DA.

    Once the D spring is installed and you have a couple thousand rounds thru the gun, it will lighten a bit more too.

    Back when I had a trigger gauge, my main 92FS with the D spring had a DA pull of just over 8lbs, and a SA pull of just a tad over 4lbs

    vs. what was the average weight for your pre-D spring 92FS's? For the sake of comparison.

    Incredible no-brainer.

    No downsides that I can think of. In addition to lightening the trigger in both DA and SA, somehow the lower pressure also smooths the trigger (feel so to me). The trigger is so good, that at times I feel as though I could actually live with it as DAO.

    And once again, no downsides: D spring does not increase the risk of misfires (going one notch lower to the even lighter Competition Spring supposedly increases the risk slightly) and the total risk exposure if you don't like the D spring is 5 minutes of your time and ~$10.

    I tried the Competition spring also, under the same logic. Bought it along with the D, but felt that the marginally lighter trigger wasn't worth any risk of misfire for a self-defense pistol. 5 minutes later, the D spring was back in and I was confident that the set up was perfect for me.

    Thanks for the info so far.
    I had a medical problem last month that caused a loss of strength in my right arm and hand. I tried the range two weeks ago and tried my 1911 first and thought something must be wrong with the gun so then tried the Beretta, felt like a 30# trigger. I packed up and came home to sulk. So just looking for anything that might help while I try to get some more strength back. Thanks
    By the way, nothing against the Beretta, it was fine for me before.

    I did the D spring, and Elite II hammer mod on both my 92FS's, and I've been pleased with them.

    Before the D spring, the SA average was 5.4lbs and the DA average was 11lbs 7oz.

    That was an average of 10 pulls...
