Guys,
I've seen numerous posts describing the stock trigger pull as being around 5#. I have two P3ATs. One was manufactured 2 1/2 years ago and one a month or two ago. Both of these guns have a trigger pull of 7 1/2 pounds on my RCBS trigger scale. That is with the scale hook located at the center of the trigger where your finger rides, and pulling back as your finger would. The only way I could get the gun to trip at about 5 1/2 was to hook the scale on the very tip of the trigger and pull it at a low angle. That's not a legitimate reading IMO. I tested my scale with known weights to be sure it was accurate, and it was right on.

So my question is: Are you guys who have the 5# guns measuring that from the middle of the trigger with a rearward pull?

  Hi Billy! The NORMAL LHS (Or the old DAT for that matter) Mod only has one fault. If you accidentally dry fire without a snap cap, the firing pin ends up jammed in the chamber. You can push it in with a dowel through the barrel, but it's a PITA. Also  eventually, dry firing without a snap cap will bend or break the FP.

The new LHS-4 version eliminates this fault. While you still shouldn't dry fire without a snap cap, at least if it DOES accidentally happen it won't jam up. It costs a little more than the LHS-3, but it's well worth it. I will email you the new info.

BTW: There are low-cost upgrades available for current DAT/LHS owners.

Packer.

2PP,
I'll write more about the LHS later, but aside from the benefits of the lighter pull through the cycle, it also reduces the effort to rack the slide. You notice it most at the first part of the slide movement where the slide is breaking over the hammer. It basically makes the gun more enjoyable to shoot.

If you get the drop in kit it's pretty easy. You do have to be able to dissassemble the gun down to the slide/ frame/ grip assemblies. I takes some basic tools and there are a few tricks to know, but it's withing just about anyones ability I think.
