    I am curious which do you like best
    LEM trigger
    or
    DA/SA
    I have owned a USPc in 9 and 45 and own a P2000 but never one with a LEM trigger
    I know its a personal choice...I'm just curious about which most like better

    My wife has a P30 and likes it quite a bit. I've shot it extensively and I kinda like the LEM 4.5 lb V1 trigger . It has a very consistent trigger pull from the first shot to the last and a short reset.
    I've done a little research on it and aside from the various version options, you can fit it with a stronger trigger return spring for an even faster reset... but the wife likes it as is. Stubborn woman. :rolleyes:

    I much prefer the TDA trigger system to any DAO in semi-automatic handguns. While both the Sig DAK and H&K LEM triggers are nice for what they are, they just aren't my cup of tea.

    I very much prefer the light LEM to any of the other triggers H&K currently offers.

    I've got a DA/SA on my p2000sk. Sounds like i need to consider a change. I've not tried the light LEM.

    I never like having only one type of trigger pull for a handgun so as a result most of my weapons are DA/SA. I have had my eye on USPs that have a decocker AND safety but they are much less common than the LEMs so I know I am in the minority.

    I own like and shoot both varieties equally well. Practice and learn to adapt. One trick ponies usually don't last long.

    I bought a p2000 with LEM and after shooting it i converted my HK25c and USP 45 to LEM. I preferred the DA/SA mostly SIG's before shooting the P2000. Now my SIG's just sit in the safe most of the time. The best thing to do is just try it, you can install the conversion and then remove it you don't like it.

    DA/SA as long as its the version that also does cocked and locked.

    The LEM is way better than the earlier DAO models

    I'm more interested in going the other way, but its a rather pricey kit of parts. I replaced my old DAO with an LEM kit and the result is way better. HK parts department was very helpful in getting me the right parts. "modularity" was a selling point of the USP

    The price kit isn't that bad of an idea if you REALLY want a certain type of trigger on the USP. Most USPs I see have the LEM trigger and I would prefer the V1. If I couldn't find a V1, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to get an LEM USP and a V1 trigger kit to do it myself.
