    Striker-fired service pistol triggers can be done right. Try an H&K P7.

    MAN, I hate getting caught in the middle of a brain-fart... I'd momentarily forgotten that absence of an exposed hammer does NOT automatically equal "hammerless"...

    And I DO LIKE the H&K P7, except for its magazine release system and its caliber. I wish they'd made it in .40 S&W or .45 ACP, with a 1911-style magazine release.

    I would lean towards the fact that a rimfire cartridge takes a lot less power to set off than a centerfire cartridge. Pinching a thin brass edge(22lr) is much easier with weak springs than doing the same to a primer.

    If you'd like an H&K P7 in .40S&W with a (basically) 1911-style mag release...well...they made those. They didn't make many but they did make them.

    It was the P7M10.

    Rare as hen's teeth, I'm betting, and priced like the Hope Diamond. Too bad. Nice pistols, really.
