    709 converted DAO (No light strikes)

    Installed the Lake firing pin guide and finally today I was able to go to the range to test it.
    The result was perfect. I didn’t get any FTF/Soft strikes.
    Now I can use my 709 for CCW with confidence.

    Curious, Does any one know what the Spec for the stock Taurus Striker Spring ? 4-7 Lbs? and what is Optimum? Have used the HG , Lite Strikes, Have used the Glock 7 LBs No Lite strikes , but does not return to Full battery all the time , all so Have the Lakeland SS guide rod set up checking out another spring from my box of springs , assorted , has a stiffer pull ,( Not as stiff as the blue Glock spring ) on a DAO, this is good, and will try the Stock spring tomorrow , Happy shooting !!!

    It has been now four months since I transformed my 709 into a DAO and I was asked from a member of this forum on how it is going:
    I have run about 5 boxes of mixed brands through and not a single failure.
    I did also transform a G2c to DAO and I'm also very happy with it.
    I proved (at least to myself) that for the DAO to work without problems, both the striker spring (from Wolf) and the striker guide (from Lakeline) have to be installed.
    By the way, the actual trigger pull is not that bad. A little gritty, but nothing out of this world. I don't think I will be messing around trying to improve the trigger feel as it is not a target pistol. For being a CCW, it shoots great, it is consistent, and above all, now it is SAFE to carry.

    I have my PT111 G2 and a 709 both changed over to DAO for well over 2 years now with NO problems , using the 6lb glock spring

    The striker safety can rub against the striker and cause light strikes , I have mine remove as it is not needed with a DAO as with the slide lock is not needed either . I also got rid of the terrible glock trigger and polished up everything inside to give me a trigger pull feel of 3 1/2 lbs

    I am very happy to have 2 of the most simple and safe pistols to carry

    Does this mod make the gun loose its second strike capability?

    Does the trigger travel distance change? Or pull weight in DA change?

    And do you need to change out the springs or will simply removing the SAO assembly make the gun DAO on it's own?

    Thanks!

    No.

    No.

    Yes.

    or will simply removing the SAO assembly make the gun DAO on it's own?

    Yes, it will make it DAO but the striker spring is a little weak due to a shorter compression. Follow the proven path: Glock spring plus Lake sleeve.

    Thanks!

    I finished my PT111 G2C conversion to DAO. I used the Wolff striker spring 6LB extra power. I really like it so far. Trigger feels very smooth. The break is crisp. I will be taking it to the range once they open.
    This has been a fun project gun for me. I started with the trigger. I installed the Asmund trigger from Galloway precision, then the 16lb factory setting stainless steel main spring from Galloway precision, tritium night sights from lakeline llc which are incredible in daytime and no light. Sights match POA & POI is perfect. I ground the pinky extension off of one of my mags because in some pants I am able to pocket carry this. I am still able to get a full 3 finger grip and I have average-ish hands. The last upgrade I did was the stainless steel striker guide from lakeline. 0 complaints about this gun before all of the upgrades I did were because I’m interested in gun smithing.
    Id like to thank everyone for their guidance in this thread.

    Al,
    Galloway precision sells a 18lb SS main spring. I wonder if that would solve your battery issue.
