Default 380's without combat triggers

What are some 380's that have a more 'normal' trigger pull compared to the mile long pull of the LC9, etc. Are there any out there that are DA/SA?

[Remington 870 12GA][Stoeger Model 3500 12GA][Savage 116 .30-06][Savage Model 10 Bull Barrel .223][Marlin 336SS .30-30][Marlin 39A .22][Marlin Model 60 22LR][Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm][Ruger MkIII 22LR]

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

The Sig P238 is a SAO but the trigger pull is very nice, in my opinion.

Yes the bersa thunders are da/sa altho i think they have one dao model. The ones i have, have really decent triggers. They are a little gritty for the first thousand trigger pulls or so till the machine burrs work out. But i would say the triggers are much better than what you find in most full size da/sa, glocks, ruger, and sw guns.

Beretta 84/85, Browning BDA (made by Beretta). Traditional DA/SA triggers. Far easier to shoot than the "combat triggers" on most sub compact .380's


In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Kahr P380

Have not fired one but I do have the PM9 and have found all Kahr triggers, while a long pull, to be consistant, smooth, with no stacking. Best DA only triggers i've found in any pistol.

how about the old Beretta 70S model in .380.... anyone here fire one before?

i think they're a bit older then the other models mentioned in this thread.

i have a beretta 96D centurion in .40 S&W that is DAO and has what often seems like an eternal mushy trigger pull, but that usually after shooting a gun with a nice smooth trigger.


my hat is off to anyone who has served or is currently serving our country.....God bless you..you're friends and family included.
