Take an empty pistol you have the SRT in and pull the trigger in DA mode. Let the trigger out 1/8 of an inch forward, and then pull back the 1/8 inch.

Did the trigger reset in either of your pistols?

Mine will not reset until I pull the trigger, rack the slide and then let up on the trigger.

Here's What the Confusion is About

I own a P227 that has had a SRT job on it. There is no need to pull and hold the trigger and rack the slide. Just make sure the firearm is safe and simply pull the trigger in DA mode and release. Trigger should instantly reset if a SRT. JMHO.
You've already determine that your pistol has a SRT after pulling the trigger in Da mode and releasing it. I still can't figure out what your confusion is all about.
The amount of trigger travel to reset in DA mode is the same whether the pistol has a standard trigger mech or an SRT and it isn't going to reset "instantly". The SRT only shortens the travel to reset in the SA mode and that requires racking the slide while holding the trigger back to evaluate, just as fjgiie described.

PS: I think that MC knows where the confusion is at.

Rack the slide insert mag, while safely point the pistol at the target fire the first shot, while keeping the trigger pulled in release it an 1/8 of an inch and say am jerry Miculek while emptying the mag. If you do 15 rounds n 3 secs..... it's an srt

There is another way.... Make sure you have an empty and safe gun!!!

Pull the trigger and hold it down...
rack the slide...
release the trigger slowly...
if the reset click is almost instantly...it's an SRT

if it creeps along until it resets, it isn't.
Like it.. Only way you know for sure!

I agree with this. Many of the options on my P226 needed me to go out to the internet to search for the description of what the letter stand for, and what the impact on using the gun wold be for me. Some of the things I looked up were what is the PVD Finish, and ho good is it. You know what Sig says, but what do the users of the guns with the PVD finish say? I also looked up the X-Ray3 Day/Night sights. Wow, that was a pleasant surprise.

In any case, a FAQ on Sig gun data, with clear explanations would be great.

Remove the magazine and clear the pistol. Pull the trigger to dry fire it and keep the trigger pulled all the way back. With you other hand rack the slide again to reset the trigger. Now slowly let your finger move forward. If at this time it only moves a short amount, it is a short reset trigger. If it moves a lot then it is not a short reset trigger. When I say short amount, I’m talking about 1/8 maybe 3/16”. If it’s like 3/8 to 1/2” then it’s not a short reset.

Also along with the short reset. Once the trigger resets and you start to pull back on the trigger there should be no take up on the trigger. If it has a small amount of take up then it’s not an SRT if it has none than it is an SRT. And yes you have to rack the slide to RESET the trigger. That’s the whole point.

No malicious SAS is Sexy *** Sig silly, ha. No to the poster who asked it means Sig Anti Snag meaning it's corners are "rounded off leaving no sharp corners" , the SAS pistols have SRT triggers also (short reset as in this thread not short reach out thin trigger) almost always too.
I have a 2007 SAS with DAK. I do not think the trigger is SRT?

My 239, 220ST, and 225 had natural trigger resets very much like an SRT.

The 220ST, I installed an SRT and could tell no difference at all.
I took it out, and put it in my Montage Suisse 220-9mm heel release.
Made a world of difference.

I have shot SAO, since 1983 and my 220-10 SE was SAO, as well as a 220 compact SAO.
I could not imagine an SRT helping them. The trigger needs travel, but is slack so I never notice.
Robert Burke said he could shorten the take up, but I saw no need.
After He did a carry trigger on the 220, it was too easy to double tap, and I would unintentionally double tap or once triple tap range shooting.

Correct.
The Short Reset Trigger action only works with DA/SA guns. It is designed to reduce how far forward the trigger has to move to reset for the single action shot.
