    I've been thinking about getting one since they've been discontinued and they're pretty cheap online, so I went to gander mountain and held the one they had in stock. The trigger had a nice light pull, but the first couple times i tried to dry-fire it the hammer wouldn't fall, then I noticed that the thin plastic tie that was holding the tag was behind the trigger. The tie wasn't much thicker than a piece of thread but i moved it in front of the trigger and it fired okay, so I looked and the gun doesn't fire unless the trigger is completely against the rear of the trigger guard. For me this made the trigger pull feel strange and it seems this would be a problem if even a little bit of dirt or gravel or maybe a wrinkle of fabric from a glove got behind the trigger, or if the trigger or trigger guard became warped or bent slightly. Are all SP2022's like this, or are the german made ones like CDNN has different, and has anybody had a problem with the trigger?

    This sounds normal to me. My metal-framed SIGs all had a SA trigger with a very long slack/takeup and a release point quite far to the rear, with the trigger bumping the frame after the trigger "broke." It is just a quirk of this pistol, as well as quite a few others with the DA/SA action type. I think you would acclimate yourself to it after some shooting.

    The trigger didn't hit the frame after it broke, it wouldn't break until the trigger hit the frame. I've also dry-fired a p228 and i didn't have to pull the trigger that far.

    I recently bought one of the all-German SP2022s in .40s&w. It doesn't have that problem. Great gun for the money, although I'm thinking about selling it and stepping up to a P229 for the aluminum frame and slightly longer grip.

    How close does the trigger get to the frame before it breaks? And how's the finish on the german ones? The one I held had about half the finish gone just from being handled in the store and what was left was all streaked.
