The good news was the SA trigger pull was short, consistent, and had a very quick reset. Double-taps were easy, and accuracy was pretty good, with only 50 rounds fired so far, and that was cheap, old ammo.
That's 20 rounds, and I was concentrating on the gun, and not my shooting skills.
I think I'm going to tempt fate, and take it apart farther than the manual warns. First, I want to see where the "tells" are in contact points. Second, I want to study the kinematics of the start of the DA pull, and see if there's full contact on both surfaces, and whether a tiny radius on the strut might start the cocking process a bit slower and more gently. Maybe my dad's P38 will offer some clues, because for rushed wartime production, it still does a better job than this.
Oh, and one tiny nip from the slide. I guess my fat American hands don't quite match 1930s German ergonomics exactly, which means being vey careful trying to achieve a high thumb hold. Still, vey pleasant, and accurate, to shoot once past that long DA pull.
Maybe the 30lb pull is a ‘feature’ and you are expected to cock the hammer for ‘real’ use. Kind of a clunky extra safety.
I don’t think I have ever been nipped by our Bersa thunderer. I wonder how different the frames are.
Well, thirty pound pull or not, nice target. I’d opt for the SA trigger pull myownself.
It just doesn’t seem reasonable that they would have put a trigger pull that heavy in that fine pistol. Even Glock’s Notorious NY trigger is less than half that of the Walther .22.
Hope you’re able to get to the bottom of that trigger pull issue. Were you able to see and/or test any other examples at your favorite LGS? Maybe a one-off occurance.
