Default Best 9MM stock Trigger on CA Roster?

Wondering everyone’s opinion on what CA roster 9 mm has the best trigger right out the box. What 9 mm are you completely pleased with the trigger and don’t feel the need to upgrade it?

Probably a CZ, Beretta, SIG or 9mm 1911.

I don't own any of those, but have shot them. They're nice.

I keep hearing so many good things about the tactical sport. I need a 9 mm 1911, but I have to get the tactical sport next!

Springfield EMP has a very nice trigger for a stock gun.

Agree with CZ Tac Sport. Get one now before it’s too late

Then Springfield 1911 in 9mm

Then CZ 75-B SA

Agree.

I also like the stock trigger on the glock 34, many sigs and the beretta as well.





The Springfield XD trigger sucks! But the powder river kit fixed that.
Just an FYI.

Tac Sport hands down.

Sig triggers are nice. Really like my SP01s triggers too. G34 is good. Beretta is good in SA, except the reset is too long. The D spring is a must, but still I wouldn’t consider a Beretta trigger at the top of the list.

If trigger is your only criteria, a 1911 will always win.

How do you define best trigger.

M986 or M929 S&W

IMO
On roster without mods - 1911-9mm Springfield or Kimber
On roster with mods - Cajunized CZ - pick your fave
Off roster via PPT - Sig Legion.... Oooh, love it!

Exactly, by design a 1911 trigger is impossible to beat.

If you’re talking 9mm in Ca then it’s kimber or Springfield, I have the EMP, RO and a kimber Commander all had ok triggers but all went to a smith for that and other work.

I would think the SA trigger of one of the S&W revolvers chambered in 9mm would have the best stock trigger. Just cock it and great trigger Maybe there is still a SA revolver with a 9mm cylinder, perhaps the Ruger Blackhawk.

As for semi-automatics it has to be 1911 followed by CZ SA models. The same guns respond the best to tuning as well. Tuned 1911 trigger is hard to beat.

Not enough criteria to define correct answer.
Semi autos out of the box-I would rate CZ Tactical Sport, SA 1911 9mm Loaded. This is single action trigger. I have both.
I do not have opinion on wheel guns.

Problem is OP said “on roster “

OP what kind of trigger are you taking about? Single action only? Striker? DA/SA? Even though that refers to the action more than the trigger, they go hand in hand.

CZ Tactical Sport has the lightest trigger pull out of any handgun from the factory and is currently still on the CA Roster, however the model is discontinued from CZ USA so you'd better find one soon before they are all gone.

Trigger for rapid three-gun style competition, or trigger for slow fire target shooting?

Best trigger out of the box would be the CZ Tac Sport. 1911s while they do have the possibility of a good trigger out of the box that is not always the case but they are easily tunable to get what you want.

Not sure what “best trigger means”...but I love the SA Loaded trigger break on mine...for a stock gun...my gun has a short take up, breaks clean and a consistent feel to the finger...

Thank you for all of the feedback guys, I really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this. I suppose “best trigger” is a pretty subjective topic. I’ll try to clarify what I mean. A best trigger to me would be limited take up with a crisp break and short travel in the reset. In regards to the action, Da/Sa recommendations are preferred but I certainly do not mind hearing about SA only and striker fired recs.

Any 9mm 1911 on roster will probably have much better triggers than my HK's, Sigs, etc.

Hard to beat a 1911 trigger, so I'd say SA 1911 9mm.

Beretta 92 in Single Action is long travel but breaks very crisp-- I love my Beretta 92's.

1911 stock triggers were the best until I shot the CZ Tactical Sport.

My new Beretta PX4 has a pretty sweet stock trigger. Better than my P01, P220, and even M9a1.

I was shocked how good it is, actually...

That's asking for a lot from a stock DA/SA trigger.
CZ's have little take-up but a lot of creep.
Berettas have a lot of take-up but very little creep.
Sig's are kind of in the middle.

CZ's have the most available aftermarket to remove some of that creep. They've probably got the best trigger if you're willing to spend even a little extra.

For stock my favorite is Beretta.

Nope, a hinged one that has mechanical leverage like a CZ-75 or P9 (CZ clone) will be better than a 1911, which slides. A stock CZ trigger sucks because the sear hook is undercut, made necessary to be safe with the lockwork geometry it was designed with. They may have improved the later models, I don't know.

Best trigger on a pistol I've ever felt was on a tuned IPSC P9 racegun, about 1 pound, no creep, almost no overtravel.

Agree. The CZ "creep" is because of the undercut sear. Watch closely from the side as you pull the trigger and you see the hammer actually being pulled back before the break.

Yes, there are aftermarket setups with redesigned geometry. CZ-75's probably have the most potential of any to go from so-so out of the box, to stellar with some gunsmithing. The double action can be smoothed out and lightened too.
