I've fired close to a hundred different handguns and this hammer-fired semi-auto has a trigger that is on par with (or better than) most $600 guns. It is smooth as butter and though I have not measured it, the trigger does not feel like it has to travel that far before it breaks. My trigger came in just under 6 lbs. and it is simply amazing. The firearm is also very accurate. Like most Walthers, it is has good ergonomics. It is a little large and people with smaller hands may have difficulties operating all the controls. I was able to snag a bunch of Creed magazines (which are interchangeable with PPX magazines, as this is the PPX M2 basically), for $18 a piece, which is nice. There really are no downsides to this gun.
