no handgun short of a really good revolver comes close to the 1911 triggers. your not really going to replicate that short of sending it off to a master pistol smith that specializes in trigger work.

replacing the mainspring with a d spring lightens the da pull. replacing the trigger return spring will lighten the sa pull a little but nothing like a 1911.

i find the m9 trigger to be crisp with no creep in sa mode but on the heavy side which is good for a combat trigger but not so good for a target trigger.

there isnt a drop in fix for most sa/da guns they require a highly skilled craftsman to get it done right and safely. sig turns out some really sick da/sa triggers on their target models that make even the finest 1911 triggers green with envy.

there is a way to force mate the sears but i dont really want to describe that in open forums since it can do permanent damage if your not careful

not to resurrect a dead thread, but...

I picked up an m9. I don't want to lighten my trigger at all, but, in single action, is there anyway to reduce the amount of take up in the trigger?

another 1911 owner trying to make my m9 a little more 1911-ish in s.a. checking in.

otherwise, I love this gun.

Reduce the take up, no. You would need a different trigger and possibly a different transfer bar. I dont know of any like that.

I dont find the take up terrible and inline with other handguns.

The D spring will take off around 3 pounds from the DA pull (from the factory weight of about 11.5 pounds, down to about 8.5 pounds). It also takes off about 1/2 a pound on the SA pull.

There is no way to shorten the SA pull without spending a lot of money. A vendor at the Beretta Forum can do it, but he charges several hundred dollars. For what a 92 costs, it does not seem worth the expense.

After 6000 rounds for my 92fs the trigger feels great and crisp, I think its broken in finally.

You could replace the hammer spring with one from a 1911 - the result is similar to installing the D Spring. You can also replace the grips with ones from a Vertec, which will reduce the grip width (the Vertec grip is thinner). The bottom part of the grip is flat so the curved backstrap will be much like a 1911 with an arched housing.
