If you want a "smoother" double action pull, then the Sig Armorer "Super Strut" will smooth the pull and actually feel lightened a bit, because it is compressing the factory polished spring evenly, and not offset. Add to it, a lighter tension mainspring, and it will get noticeably lighter in pull weight, but still remain smooth. Go too light in spring tension, and you could experience misfires, so tread lightly. Most experts recommend no lower than 19# for a carry weapon, 17# for a strictly range weapon. It all depends on your ammunition...
For Single Action trigger pull, it's mostly sear/hammer engagement angles, and a professional who knows what they are doing, to perform the work. A lighter Sear Spring can help, but if the angles aren't correct, you can get "doubles", or even a "run away" which requires a Class 3, for more than 1 shot per trigger pull...
A "dual adjustable trigger" eliminates wasted trigger travel, and as others have already mentioned, whether you want a straight trigger, or curved, is a personal preference. There are even "Combinations" including a trigger, and modified trigger bar, that basically adjusts the leverage, the trigger has over the hammer, creating a lighter "feel".
You need to decide purpose and relay expectations, to receive a more precise answer.
Well said. When I was mentioning changing to a 17 pound hammer spring I did not make clear that this is strictly a range gun. I have a 229 Elite with a 16 pound hammer spring and it shoots everything I have attempted to put through it but I would never consider it as anything but a range gun with the light spring in it. Heavier springs help maintain the safety aspect of the double action pull.
