I want to purchase another HK. It will most likely be a P30 9mm. I have been reading lots of info on various forums and I am at a loss as to why so many folks like the LEM style of trigger mechanism? Maybe I am misunderstanding the data that I see on HKs charts showing the difference in trigger weight between the various variants. Here are the arguments that I see supporting the LEM: 1. The trigger is consistent from the first shot. 2. The trigger pull is lighter 3. The reset is shorter 4. Faster shooting None of these arguments seem accurate to me IF I understand how the mechanism works. Issue 1: My understanding is that there is really no difference here between an LEM and a DA/SA when the DA/SA is fired in SA. A DA/SA fired with hammer manually cocked back on the first shot is the same (trigger resistance) on the first shot as it on and any subsequent shots. I shoot my DA/SA HK45 99% of the time in this manner because it is faster, more accurate and I dont notice any difference in trigger pull from shot one or two. Issue 2: According to the chart that I saw, trigger pull weight on DA/SA shot in SA is actually lighter (easier pull) than the LEM and less trigger take-up. LEM is right around 5lbs whereas the DA/SA is 4.4lbs in SA. Issue 3: Reset info seems to be somewhat inconsistent but from what I gather, the reset on the LEM is slight longer than the SA reset. Issue 4: I don't understand this one at all. How is it possible to shoot a pistol with a harder trigger pull and longer reset faster than a pistol firing in SA which has a lighter and shorter trigger pull? So, it seems to me that many folks state LEM vs DA/SA when they do videos or write-ups but do they mean LEM vs DAO? How many people shoot DAO HKs Ive never seen any ? The only real difference that I can see is that a guy can loose the extra lever (safety/decocking) by doing the LEM conversion. Personally I dont think I would want to lose the decocking lever because it is so handy to use. So, what am I missing? Why do so many folks like LEM HKs when it seems to me that they end up with a pistol with a harder trigger pull, more trigger take-up, and they are carrying around a firearm with a preloaded spring kind of like a half-breed Glock/HK? Again, I am close to purchasing a P30 (let me know if you want to sell yours :thumbup and at this point I am only looking at variant 3s but I will consider an LEM variant if someone can explain how it is better than the DA/SA.
