    Colt DAO

    Has anyone ever shot the Colt Double Action Only 1991? Is the trigger pull similar to the Para LDA or more like the trigger pull of a Glock Or H&K or other DAO firearms?

    I'd say its a derivative of the Colt Double Eagle, that doesn't stay cocked like a double action auto.

    Interested

    There not out yet. My Dept doesnt allow "locked & coked" & requires a minimum 9lb trigger pull. I hear this Colt has a pretty heavy stock pull or at least some have complained of it online while pulling the trigger at SHOT show. So for off duty carry so i'm definitely interested in this Colt as a contender. This definitely is a "niche" weapon as 3-5lb trigger pulls is what sells the most.

    I called Colt CS a few weeks ago and they said it might be out early next year.

    We shall see.

    Early next year is only a couple of months away! It has been a long wait until now; hope it really is early next year.

    Welcome to my dilema

    This is New Jersey... Only criminals carry 5lb trigger pulls

    Actually we are issued Sig 229s DAKs with Stock 10 pound trigger pulls. Our off duty weapon policy have the following two horrible rules:
    1) Trigger must be DAO 9.5 to 12lbs.
    2) The weapon must not require pulling the trigger to disassemble (so no glock or Kahrs for us).

    The truth is the Department is more concerned over liability (accidental shootings/discharges) then Officer safety. Training is biannual range qualifications shooting 50 rounds day, 50 round night (using welders googles to simulate) at static targets from 1-25 yards... its minimal.

    In regards to the Colt DAO, While most would look at this gun and say... Who would want that? Well its us guys stuck in Nannyville.

    FWIW.. Sometimes I feel like just getting a standard New Agent & carrying it cocked & locked... Dept rules & Regs wont save my behind in a shootout

    Both of my trigger pull gauges don't go high enough to measure the double-action trigger pull on my S&W Model 637 J-frame revolver, and my S&W Model 686 Plus ain't much better. I've fired those two guns enough to have some relatively good trigger control, so it's really not an issue.

    When I tested the Para-Ordnance (now Para-USA) Carry 9 for the M1911.ORG E-zine, I recorded a trigger pull of between 7 1/2 and 8 pounds. That trigger was very smooth, though, and the manipulation of the trigger presented no problems while firing the pistol.

    I'm hopeful that Colt can get the double-action-only trigger pull on the DAO guns down a bit, but we'll have to wait and see how the regular production guns work out, when they become readily available.
