Trigger weight?
« on: July 15, 2017, 08:02:32 AM »
So I am considering a new build sp01shadow . It will be used for IDPA and production.  If you had two options on trigger which would you choose. 
 1.  DA 6.5 lb.  SA 2lb
Or
 2. DA 5 LB   SA 2.12 lb

Thanks

#2
My 75 Shadow is 5# DA/-  and  SA is around 2.5#.  I would prefer about 2.8/9# SA,  but haven't been able to get it.

I would also choose #2. My non-Shadow SP-01 used in IDPA is 5.5# DA and 2# SA.

Comp/Race hammers and an 8# mainspring, polishing etc.etc....and Mobil1 O0 ;)
Requires FED primers in my two pistols

It's not hard to bring the DA pull down.  I find out hard to keep the SA from getting too low when you do.

I should have guessed... Fed primers and lower hammer springs. It makes me wonder why the other brands make their primers harder since federal primers are so desirable...

So if SA 1kg so your DA is 5.4 kg?

Hey Vlad
No, it is not
You see I wrote 1Kg in SA- and 5.4 LB in DA
In every Level 3 match we have our R.O. testing our  firearms so we are all fit in the Production trigger pull test.
So I have 2.2# in SA and 5.4LB in DA

Federal primers are the only ones still using an older formula with a skosh of nitro glycerin. The MSDS pages show primer compound components.  This combined with fairly soft cups male them the choice for many competitive. Shooters,  especially revolver.
