Is that correct?
If so how do the 'internal' safety's work?
is it DAO?
firing pin block.
There is no real safety.
DAO = long trigger pull on every shot
DA/SA = long on the first shot, follow up shots are shorter
The HK LEM is a variation of DAO, therefore it has no external or internal safety. The trigger pull is ~8 pounds, keep your finger off the trigger and keep your thumb over the recessed hammer when reholstering and you have nothing to worry about.
In-gun safeties refer to making sure that you actually pulled the trigger to make the gun fire and that its in battery and safe to fire. If you're dumb and pull the trigger when you don't want it, they do not prevent the gun from firing. Personally I want no manual safeties on my defensive guns to remember to turn off.
LEM is like DAO in that each shot is the same length and strength pull, however it isn't DAO. With LEM the firing mechanism isn't fully at rest so it isn't DAO. Its sort of "pre-cocked" so its not fully DAO, and its not fully SAO but somewhere in between like glock's and xd's.
yeah, I meant external safeties are
hammer drop safeties
