Excellent explanation. I recently picked up a NIB P229 DAK in 40 just for the fun of it. Paid $500 OTD so not too worried about not liking it. DAK is the only Sig configuration I’ve never fired so will be interesting. Will report back with impressions after some range time with her.I don't like DAK, but I can explain. DAK is intended to address a common operator error with DAO. The long travel of DAO is an advantage under stressful situations because it minimizes the chances of an accidental discharge. But the long reset of DAO is a disadvantage under stressful situations if the operator intends to continue shooting but fails to allow the trigger to come forward far enough to reset (short stroking the trigger). That's where DAK comes in. The trigger has two resets. The first is the standard reset where the trigger is allowed to come forward all the way (just like DAO). The second is the intermediate reset where the trigger is only allowed to come forward part of the way (almost like SA). The weapon can be fired from this position but it will be an even heavier trigger pull than from the full forward position. If the trigger is released past the intermediate reset, it will return to the full forward position on its own. The idea is to shoot DAK exactly like you would shoot DAO. But if you mess up by short-stroking the trigger, the gun will still be able to fire as long as you have let the trigger travel to at least the intermediate reset point.
