I went to the range a few weeks ago, and I noticed 2 things:
- 1. While shooting, I would squeeze and then hold the trigger. I would slowly let it out, but not past the point where I could feel something engage in the trigger mechanism. I wouldn't let the trigger out very far, I couldn't imagine it was more then a few millimeters, and then if I squeezed it again, it would fire. I suppose I shouldn't be shocked, after all it is a semi-automatic rifle, right? I was surprised at how you could shoot the SIG with such little trigger travel if you really wanted to - assuming you had already a shot off. Maybe that is correct, as intended operation, it's just something that I noticed while shooting that I can't recall ever experiencing before on any other rifle (not sure I've tried it either).
2. I've decided I hate the SIG red dot that came with it. I instinctivly want to line the dot up with the front sight post and shoot with a single eye, and maybe because of that, I can't seem to ever get a consistent sight picture. I also have a heard time finding a place that feels like a natural cheek weld. It then struck me that this may be due to the fact that I am using to what amounts to a $30 optic on a $1900 rifle...but the not finding a natural cheek weld would not be solved with a better optic, right?
