This is one handgun that’s definitely on my list.
It does receive some criticism for having a strange trigger. Called “Double Action Plus+” the LH9 hammer can be pushed forward, partially decocking the pistol. It’s only partially-decocked, though, as the mainspring is still under tension. The trigger returns to its double-action position, but with a little nudge, the hammer and trigger reset to their single-action positions.
Critics will say this complicates the pistol, but Double Action Plus+ is completely optional. The gun can be carried cocked-and-locked, standard double-action/single-action and it has a manual safety that can be engaged with the trigger in single-action, double-action and Double Action Plus+. It gives you all the options in the world. And it’s a very smooth, light and predictable trigger.
The full-size pistol is very compact and the standard models, the LH9 and LH9N do not have rails, making them particularly snag-free for concealed-carry.
Because the gun is obscure, people expect it to be inexpensive, which it’s not. You don’t hear SIG owners complain too much; the build quality and finish of Lionheart’s products is at the top of the game. People who own them know they’re getting their money’s worth.
