    model 990 vs model 94

    I have held both of these guns and l like them both. I was able to shoot the model 94 today at the range(rental gun) and didn't like the heavy trigger pull. Can anyone tell me if the trigger pull of the model 990 is lighter than the model 94? I am wanting to get something to just mess around with and possibly use in a our local shooting league so i need a lighter trigger than the model 94.

    Also would you recommend the 4" or 6.5" barrel

    thanks

    Re: model 990 vs model 94

    I just today bought a 94. Over the last two years I have tried out the pull on most models from Snubby to 5 inch, and a few 941's. The DA is usually pretty tough, SA is light and quick. I have not shot mine yet, but I did dry fire it a few times, and at least the one I bought was pretty nice DA, about the same as my 905 and Rossi 461 (Rossi has a tough DA but breaks nice).

    I probably will not get to shoot the 94 until I go to AZ Sunday. The Airline is gonna hate me, I am packing 4 handguns. 2 9mm and 2 22lr, and about 700 rds of ammo

    the 94 I shot today was EXTREMELY heavy DA and I could barely hit air with it...but the SA was amazingly light and it was very accurate. Did not save the target as I was embarrassed. it looked like someone shot #7 shot from a 12 guage at it.

    Glad to hear yours is a little smoother.

    Re: model 990 vs model 94

    I own both a M94 as well as a Tracker 22LR, although mine is the 970 and not the 990. Aside from the 7 vs 9 shot difference, they're otherwise identical. Yes, the D/A trigger pull is much lighter than on a NIB M94, although over time with use, the M94s D/A pull lightens somewhat.

    Thanks! If you had to choose one over the other which one would you choose? The use would be for general plinking and for local shooting league where D/A would be a must.

    If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the Tracker. With what you've stated you want one for, I'd definitely choose the Tracker.

    Re: model 990 vs model 94

    Personally, I think the tracker is too BIG. I like the 94 better. but I have small hands.
