A gave the guy a second chance, but apparently it was too subtle. Thanks for clearing up more misinformation in this thread. I just didnt have it in me.

That's not entirely true either. The striker on the SR models is only kept partially cocked as the slide is racked, but not fully cocked. The striker is fully cocked and then released as the trigger is pulled. So technically, the trigger on the SR guns leans more toward DAO (double action only) since the trigger is performing two functions with each pull, partially cocking the striker and also releasing the sear.

It's all about marketing. I guess if you want to completely technical, the SRs use what's called a preset trigger. Not a true SA and not a true DA.

Ya got that backward. The SR series of handguns have a very short pull double action trigger, seeming much more like a single action than typical DAO and 1911s have true single action triggers.
