Newer PPKs made by S&W just are pure suck. And older ones routinely needed to be throated, and had no drop safety. I'd rather have a Sig 220 personally.220 or 230?
The DA trigger pull is off the scale(!) - I'm guessing it's in the neighborhood of 10 -12 pounds. I'd like to drop that down to something a little more manageable...
Not in the habit of responding to my own post but in case someone runs across this thread in the future that has an interest in making their PX4 Storm 9mm Compact trigger pull weight a bit lighter, here's my search results. My testing is more fully documented in the Beretta Forum, under the 'Beretta-smithing & maintenance' thread group.
To cut to the chase, I estimated my DA trigger pull weight as being over ten pounds. As mentioned here, the SA pull weight came in at just over 5 lbs (per my Wheeler Engineering spring trigger gauge which tops out at eight pounds). I have reduced the DA pull weight down to 7 lbs and the SA to 5 lbs (even). This has resulted in an overall smoother trigger travel and less struggle to keep the muzzle on target during that first critical initial shot (in a self defense scenario).
I am providing this information for general reference and not to encourage anyone to mess around with their pistol: if you do, it's on you! Here's what I finally settled on as the best choice for me. I bought from Brownells a Beretta Cougar 8000 Series D Hammer Spring (their SKU #913100120). I cut four coils off it with a Dremel Aluminum Oxide Cutting Wheel. I replaced the original Beretta PX4 hammer spring with the modified Cougar hammer spring and obtained the results mentioned above. This does not decrease the amount of 'take up' or pre-travel of the DA trigger, it stays as it was originally: long.
The Walther PPQ 45 is fed by a steel 12-round magazine (where legal), and two magazines are provided. The magazines have polymer base pads that flare slightly at the bottom, which helps if you have to strip a stuck magazine. They have numbered index holes at the rear at the four-, seven-, 10- and 12-round marks.
I don't like her.Tell me why please.
