    Which easily concealable DAO pistol has the best out of the box trigger pull?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    Kahr Elite

    I've heard the Kahr Elite triggers aren't too shabby...

    I second the Kahr Elite. My K9 has a pretty damn good trigger and the Elite is supposed to be better.

    The Beretta 92D and 96D models have uniformly great DAO triggers.

    I don't know if I'd say the best, but the Para LDAs have suprisingly nice trigger pulls.

    Kel Tec P-11.

    Of course I had to do a trigger job on it, then put it back in the box, then take it out of the box to fit the criteria.... :rolleyes:

    However, my KT P-32's stock trigger at about 5.5# is pretty good, and concealment doesn't get much easier than with a P-32.

    Kahr Elite is smooth and is on both my Kahr's.

    I got a chance to fire a Para LDA, and it's trigger is super smooth.

    In DAO, I like the Beretta 92D & the USPc 40 LEM.

    It simply depends on what you consider for the criteria of a "quality DAO" trigger....
    The Kahr Elite is wonderful....short, smooth..but has some 'feel" to it and breaks without warning.....a fav of mine. Good reset also....
    The LDA triggers are lighter, as smooth and have less feel than the Kahr....and let you know its gonna break...just a tad.
    I prefer the Elite for its higher "FQ" or Feel Quotient.......
    Shoot well
    P.S. The 3953 has OEM trigger pull that is smooth...but longer and harder pull than the other two....My 5943SSV has a PC Comp DAO trigger and is 5-6# with a 1/4" of glass smooth pull......
    Very close to an Elite.........

    Never tried the Kahr trigger yet...

    The Para LDA feels buttery smooth. Excellent! :D

    For polymers, I like the HS2000 DAO trigger... has a smooth and predictable break to it. ;)

    I like the Kahr Elite trigger on my K9, K40, and MK9. I've tried the USPc 40 LEM (my buddy is in the INS), but frankly I wasn't that impressed. I was all excited about it, until I tried it...

    I like Kahr DAO triggers alot. LDA triggers are light, but I don't like the feel of them myself... they seem almost TOO light for the length of the pull, if that makes any sense at all.

    Sphinx DAO is smoother than Kahr.
