Odd safety for a single action because you push down the cocked hammer to engage the safety and when you disengage the safety the hammer flies back in the cocked postion. Picked up a couple weeks ago and everyone I showed was amazed by it. Good gun and the only single action I would carry but that's just my prefance. Made during the ban and the instructions read as such stating thing like never carry with a loaded chamber for whatever reason , nothing mechanical just political When I read through it I was taken back in time when guns were the worst thing in the world and the AWB was in full effect and it was scary.
