    Hello,

    I havn't been able to find much detailed information about the SRT option.

    I am looking into getting a SIG P220 .45 Auto, and I would like to know what the SRT is all about.

    1) What is the mechanical function of the SRT?

    2) What are the up's and down's of the SRT?

    3) Why do people get the SRT? Compared to DAK.

    4) Why not to get the SRT?

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a description of it:

    I have not personally used SRT, but I can find no down side, as the standard reset is quite long. (I've owned SIGs in the past.) Since you indicate you are buying a new one anyway, perhaps they will have a model with SRT already in it.

    there's no downside to the SRT.

    I am not too familiar with terminology and handgun operation in general.

    So, after you fire the first round, which is Double action, the following (Single action) shots are easier to squeeze off.

    Can someone go more in depth into this? Because I can see this will affect many things...

    First of all, does 60% less travel equate to less Trigger Weight?

    So will the DA still be 10 lbs and SA would be only 1.76 lbs?

    4.4 x 0.6 = 2.64
    4.4 - 2.64 = 1.76

    Second, in a tactical situation, what does this mean?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I am also considering a GLOCK 22 GEN 4, are there any benefits in the GLOCK I am not seeing? It has up to 17 round clip of .40 cal, anything else?

    1) What is the mechanical function of the SRT?

    The Short Reset Trigger (SRT) shortens the reset of the trigger in SA


    2) What are the up's and down's of the SRT?

    up: If you have the training, the shorter reset of the SRT would allow you to shorten the time between accurate shots, because your trigger would have to move less to reset the trigger

    down: Factory equipped SRT guns have a tendency to have both heavier and grittier trigger pulls, due to their increased engagement to insure safety


    3) Why do people get the SRT? Compared to DAK.

    The SRT was designed to compete for a LE contract with the S&W Gen 3 pistol. The S&W is renown for it's short reset in SA. Many folks equate short reset with faster accurate shooting.

    The Double Action-Kellerman (DAK) is a modification to the Sig's DAO trigger sysytem. It offers a lighter and smoother DA trigger stroke (like a tuned revolver) with the option of a shorter (less than full release), but heavier, reset.


    4) Why not to get the SRT?

    Most people will never fully utilize the shorter reset, because they don't know how to correctly manage their trigger to it's potential. For those who do, there are other inherently safer modifications available.

    If you have guns that have shorter resets and you fine that the longer reset of the regular 220 trigger causes you to short stroke the trigger (not releasing the trigger enough to reset), the SRT would offer a more consistent reset travel

    nimbus, you need to rent some Sigs and try the various modes before you decide. Glock is the same trigger pull for each round, whch many people prefer. Some choose the DAK for this reason. Do your homework before putting down the cash.

    The reduced travel has no effect on the DA and has no effect of the pull weight of the trigger at all

    Ditto.

    The 60% less travel refers to RESET, which refers to the point at which the mechanical trigger/hammer linkage re-engages, ready to fire the next shot by pulling the trigger.

    It has nothing to do with the weight of the trigger pull.

    The DA pull will be around 10#, the single action pull will be about 4# or 5#
