    Two stage trigger

    ok - Maybe I should clarify. I'm putting together a "teaching" situation, and I need to explain what a two stage trigger is. I have an AR-15 that is single stage, and I thought I could use the beretta 96 as an example of a two stage trigger.
    Also in my earlier post I meant to say that there is a small amount of play before the trigger stops and you know any more force will engage the hammer - and the gun fires.
    I have emailed beretta tech support - no reply yet - I'd appreciate it if someone could verify this for me.
    Thanks,
    Hollow

    I'm sorry - I don't know the answer to that. I assume U are correct in your explanation.

    I'd call beretta usa, you'll be waiting awhile to get that e-mail back. I learned long ago that if need a question answered from beretta, the quickest way is a phone call. (800) 636-3420

    This site may help you a bit...He talks briefly about his 2 stage trigger on his Beretta 87.

    I just checked google - one of the sites stated that a two stage trigger means that the trigger is doing something other than just breaking the sear when you move it - a one-stage trigger is quick, short and crisp; a two stage trigger is longer.

    The trigger on the 92/96 is so long because it has to slowly raise up the firing pin block, then the sear breaks.

    This is my best guess at the two stage trigger

    Greetings...

    Yes - a 2 stage trigger is one that travels a bit = before engaging the sear and releasing the hammer/firing pin...


    Why? Because a 2 stage trigger is MORE accurate over all - it enforces intention - in other words, you must PULL the trigger to discharge...

    Your finger is put at the VERY point of discharge - and flinch/TIME is reduced to it's minimum....

    Trying shooting a stock Springfield XD. That to me is a 2 stage trigger. There's PLENTY of pre-travel. It's not a double action trigger so you're not prepping any firing mechanism during the pre-travel period. It's just slack (stage 1).

    Sorry I didn't get back to this. But for those that might care, I called Beretta and they confirmed that the 92/96 does NOT have a 2 stage trigger. I almost said it did in my podcasst - "phew"

    If you will forgive the intrusion of an old sixgunner, the double action revolver is often fired as a "two-stage" pull.

    As the trigger is cycled, it unlocks and rotates the cylinder and cocks the hammer in a smooth pull, then there is a noticable pause and more pressure is applied to fire the revolver. There is a definite hesitation. This as opposed to one long smooth continuous pull.

    It firing double action with single action control.

    Make sense?
