    Please get RID of the Gun, I will take it free of charge. I just need an address of where to pick it up, And I won`t charge you anything to dispose of it.

    Im sorry, I couldn`t help myself. A DA is a Long/Hard Trigger pull, A SA is a Nice Short Clean breaking pull.

    Take a Glock/1911 and compare them. Glock is a DA, 1911 is a SA

    A SA only provides one Action. You pull the Trigger, And that in turn releases the Hammer/Striker what ever have you.

    A DA uses two actions. One is to pull the Hammer/ Striker back then releases the Hammer/Striker, Again what ever have you.

    A Decocker is a Safety.

    The fact that it has a Decocker tells me it is a SA/DA as it must have a single action mode to decock from.

    Does your Gun have a Red Dot above the Safety on the Frame?

    HAVE THE GUN UNLOADED IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS, THE SAFETY MAY FAIL AND SEND A ROUND OFF.

    If your Gun has a Red Dot on the Frame above the Safety, That is indeed a Safety. Push the Safety Up covering the Red Dot, And pull the Trigger. The Hammer/Striker will NOT fall.

    BUT HAVE THE GUN UNLOADED IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS, THE SAFETY MAY FAIL AND SEND A ROUND OFF.

    IMHO you should be no where near that firearm

    Single action- hammer has to be cocked for the weapon to fire
    Double action/Single action - if the firearm has a hammer it can fire while being cocked or it can be fired with the hammer uncocked by pulling the trigger

    as for the safety/decocker
    i simply cannot pull any information out of your last post to be able to understand it.


    be careful

    I would have the gun checked out by a gunsmith and then find a basic pistol class in your area. Go to the NRA website to locate an instructor near you.

    I don`t understand what you are saying, The safety should be covering the Red mark on the Frame of the Pistol. If the Red Mark is covered by the Safety on the side, Then your Safety is engaged, And it SHOULDN'T`t Fire when the Trigger is pulled. If the Gun dosen`t cover the Red mark on the Frame, Then there is something wrong with the Gun, And I HIGHLY SUGGEST you take it to a Gun Smith.

    JUST REMEMBER, HAVE THE GUN UNLOADED WHEN PLAYING WITH IT OUTSIDE OF THE RANGE.

    i can take the decocker an push it up covering the red dot if i pull the trigger while holding it up the trigger will not engage anything so it will not fire but the safty lever im pushing up will not stay their unless i hold it if i let go it goes back down an uncovers the red dot an it feels as if it were spring operated so it cant stay up.

    If this is the case have the range master check it out at the range... also they might have a smith on staff.

    Why didn`t you research the Gun before you bought it? I have researched EVERY Gun that I have Bought/Traded, And I have waited atleast 6 months before buying what ever Gun I Have/Had. You SHOULD ALWAYS look into a Gun before purchasing it.

    would you purchase a car without knowing everything you can find out about it?
    would you propose to a woman without knowing her?
    then why on earth would you purchase a gun without researching it?
    you could have easily had the person that sold it to you show you how to use it.
    or this is just a crazy thought

    READ THE OWNERS MANUAL.
    they typically explain whats what on a gun

    First and foremost
    did you purchase the gun legally?
    because it seems like you got it from the man at the corner
