    If you like the same trigger pull everytime, then the only way to go is DAK. Smooth as butter and breaks like a glass rod.

    Both types when done by Sig are exceptional right out of the box.

    It is a matter of personal preference for me and being a luddite when it comes to guns. I choose sa/da over the dak. Both are nice and smooth.

    Forgive the dumb question: What's DAK?

    Double Action Kellerman IIRC

    It's a lightened and smoothened DA only trigger. Sort of like Para's LDA and HK's LEM triggers.

    DA/SA. No one does it better out the box than Sig!

    DA/SA for me. Gotta practice with it plenty, since the difference in the pull will make a difference in your shooting. Don't spoil yourself and shoot SA only at the range... it will only make your DA shooting suffer.

    SIG P220R SAO for me!

    I hate DA/SA guns and quit buying them years ago.

    The DA/SA. Sure, that first pull is a different, but it's also your safety. After that, the SA trigger is so fine, makes it easy to utilize the incredible accuracy of the SIG.

    I prefer the feel of the DAK, although the SIG looks better with the decocker IMHO.

    I have a DA/SA Sig P228 which is very nice. It is a great trigger. For carry I prefer the a DAO though.

    DA/SA...preferably with a trigger job. I'm savin' my nickels to send mine to Grayguns someday.

    DAK. I'm too spoiled on consistency now with Glock/Kahr triggers, or even Hi-Powers.

    I like the DAK and am thinking of getting a 226 in DAK. Its just confusing but I really love my 228. The more I read this thread, the more confused I am getting.

    For my personal use, I like DA/SA all the way... every pistol I have that has DA/SA as an option is DA/SA. :)

    What do I like about the DAK trigger? It has two reset points. A full-length reset with a 6.5 lb pull, and a half-length reset with a 8 lb pull. I personally like the shorter, crisper, 8 lb pull.

    DA/SA.

    Long first pull = safer

    As an option, you can cock the hammer for all SA.

    DA/SA. It's really hard to beat the single action trigger. I even enjoy the DA pull, it's shorter travel than other platforms such as HK's USP and Beretta's 92FS. All in all the SIG DA/SA is quite excellent.

    A good smooth DA pull like on my P228 is very enjoyable. Then again, I also have a P226 that the DA is horrid (it's being sent out for trigger work).

    I have been able to try the DAK at a store, and it felt weird to me. Maybe in actual shooting it might have been better.

    I prefer the DA/SA over the DAK option..
    I will say that I'm looking forward to my shipment of P250's coming in the next week that have a lighter DAO pull than the DAK trigger system. (I'm a Sig Dealer)

    Actually it is--DAK adds $20 to the purchase price of a gun if ordered from Sig that way.

    I didn't research the entire line, but in the P220 Carry platform, there is no difference at all.

    SiG's standard DA/SA action has far too long a reset to be placed in this class. The SIG Elite Series is great...almost as good as a Smith & Wesson DA/SA...

    I have a DA/SA on my P239, but I would not mind having one with a DAK. The issue is that the first pull on the DA/SA is very heavy (10 lbs-ish) then the rest are very light (4.5 lbs-ish). This can throw off your accuracy in a very stressful situation. You might pull to hard on your follow-up shots. Nonetheless, I am used to it and it is second nature now so I am not too concerned. On the other hand the 7 lb pull of the DAK may be a bit heavy... those 4.5 lb SA shots sure are nice...
    In the end, it's hard to beat a Sig trigger system in auto handguns. Either one you choose will make you happy. Just decide what your needs are and go from there.

    Agreed. In a real defensive situation I would prefer to have that heavy trigger pull for the first shot because under stress it will tend to prevent unintentional discharge.
