      Question LCP DA trigger/firing question

      I might be displaying my ignorance with this question, but oh well here it goes. When the first round is chambered or when in empty mag/dry fire mode there is about a 1/3 inch of free play in the trigger before tension and then firing occurs. After the first round has been fired the tension starts at the beginning of the trigger pull (no free play). Is this normal and Im just not understanding the single action/DA concept ( I thought I did) , or an anomaly with the gun? It does fire.
      A call to Ruger tomorrow will clear this up for me, but I thought I'd ask tonight for a quicker answer for my impatient self.

      Thanks in advance

      Hmmmm, I have about 1/3" of play in the trigger at all times, I think! Let me know what Ruger says!

      Hi, first this is NOT a recall question, its a trigger pull question on a LCP.
      When the first round is chambered or when in empty mag/dry fire mode there is about a 1/3 inch of free play in the trigger before tension and then firing occurs. After the first round has been fired the tension starts at the beginning of the trigger pull(no free play). Is this normal?
      Thank you

      Response:
