    Okay, the SIG website says the gun is a DAO design but on a video from the shot show one of their head honchos declares that the gun is not DAO but is instead a light striker fired design with a hammer. What is with the dicrepencies SIG?

    They look to have a hammer in the video... also Sig is going to have a .50 cal that's kinda cool though i will never be able to afford it.

    I assume the trigger on the SIG P290 will be similar to the LDA style trigger on the Para Ordnance Carry 9. Maybe their 1911 style 9mm will be also.

    Taurus does a similar falsehood with its PT709 "Slim" pistol. All of the magazine ads say that it is double-action/single-action, but only on the website do they specify that it is single-action only---that striker is fully cocked once the slide is racked! It seems that the executives cannot agree on what to say for marketing.......................elsullo

    My Ruger LCP has a hammer, but it is not truly DA.
    Racking the slide sets the hammer to hit the "striker" and it has to cycle to fire again.
    I believe they are using a similar design here.
