That's a very much "your mileage may vary" statement. If you like the DAK trigger, the DAK trigger is what you like. I personally find it smooth, quick and accurate.

Don't diss my DAK, viking!

Yep, the police trade-ins are simply passed on, and examination of the wear markings on the barrel's exterior finish near the muzzle and on the feed ramp, the frame's rails, and the breech-face of the slide can give one an idea of the round count. It's my understanding that the CPO redbox pistolas have the slides redone and internals replaced as needed, as well as a 1-year warranty. The frames are not re-anodized, so any nicks, scratches, dings and dents are "character".

My New to Me (NTM) .40 P226 Elite's frame has no dings or scratches, barrel has almost no wear markings from cycling, the feed ramp finish looks like new, as does the breech face. Somebody's house gun-or a divorce gun.

My CPO P226 - .40 was either not issued or they redid everything on it. If was in like new condition and had no nicks or scratches on it. I also bought a P229 - 357 Sig in the same condition. This was several years ago back when the .40 was in favor.

How are the DAO or DAK versions different from the regular versions of the P226?

SIG handguns have four manuals of arms - DA/SA, SAO, DAO and DAK.

DA/SA (double action/single action) is the most common, long initial trigger pull (double action), followed by shorter, lighter trigger pulls (single action), easily distinguished by the decocking lever.

SAO (single action only) features a short, light trigger pull every time and is easily identified by a thumb safety. SIG has SAO's available in the classic P-series along with full 1911's and the P938/P238.

SIG also offer two DAO (double action only) variants - DAO and DAK (double action Kellerman).

DAO is very similar to a DA revolver, long, relatively heavy trigger pull coupled with a long trigger reset. It is, in essence, the DA/SA trigger minus the SA component.

The DAK trigger incorporates an intermediate reset, a shorter trigger reset point, at a bit heavier pull which, according to the company, is only present to prevent a short stroke of the trigger. The initial trigger pull is about 6 1/2 #, considerably lighter than the stock initial pull of the DA/SA, while the intermediate reset trigger pull comes in at about 8 1/2#.

Thanks for the explanation on that. What is the advantage of having double action only? Also, I've noticed that the DAK and DAO versions have much smaller hammers. Is there a reason for that?

My guess, purely a guess, since there is no SA in DAK or DAO, no need to cock, hence no need for the hammer spur.
