welcome.
It seems that DAO triggers are a bit easier by design. DA/SA pistols are typically fired from the SA position.

You could look for a little lighter spring from wolf etc.

Going to a 19lb, or 20lb, Wolff Hammer Spring.

It did not lighten the SA pull on my P-97 (still a long 5.25lbs with overtravel), but it did smooth the DA pull a little.

A Traditional Double Action needs to be learned. It is not the same as a striker fired pistol.

My old .40 caliber P94 had a rough trigger when new. After spending a lot of time doing dry fire practice with a penny balanced on the front sight & running a couple thousand rounds through it the trigger smoothed out nicely. At one time I did swap it to one of the lighter Wolff springs but later on decided for my own reasons to change it back. At that point I actually liked it better with the factory spring.

I agree with RedfalconBill it does take more work to learn a DA/SA trigger than many other action types.

Hmmm...I just bought a P95 (test fired in May, 2013) and the trigger on mine seems a lot lighter and smoother than I remember my previous P95 being. Now, it's not "light" by any stretch of the imagination, but certainly manageable in DA...but the SA pull is very, very nice. Some take up, but then a light, crisp pull. I'm very pleased with the SA action...and I hope the DA action will get even better with some live fire/dry fire.

If yours is that difficult, maybe talk to Ruger? The DA pull on these guns is never going to be like a striker fired gun, though.

Just wanted to report back that I ordered the 19# trigger spring from wolff, and I can tell that the trigger is a bit easier.

I took the P95 out and ran 90 flawless rounds through it.

Oh, and a few months back (after purchasing the p95), I recorded it in action, but in slow motion at 400 FPS.

I own a Ruger MKII w/ 5" bull barrel that I bought back in the late 70's or early 80's, that was always my favorite to shoot... highly accurate.

The P95 is right up there.. and a joy to shoot all day long!
