    OK, I will show my ignorance. I have two DT 10s. One is as it came from the factory. The other has double release hooks by Spears. Is one inertia and one mechanical? The bottom line is, I don't know the definition of which is which. Please define.

    Put a couple snap caps in it, or don't. Pull the trigger twice. If the firing pins both drop, its mechanical. If you have to strike the butt on a solid object before the second one will go its inertial.

    Sorry, ChiefJon. I had a phone call. Inertial triggers use the inertia from the recoil to set the second trigger. Mechanical guns just fire the triggers sequentually, even if the first round did not fire. Mechanical triggers are preferred for their reliability. Also if you shoot tubed subgage guns the recoil of .410 and 28ga sometimes do not set an inertial trigger.

    Thank you. The answer to the original question is...DT 10 triggers are inertia.

    Thanks for the info. Was considering one for sub-gauge but like mechanical triggers.
