DA/SA in Limited

Recommended Posts

 

Does anyone know of a rule that explains whether or not it is legal to start with the hammer down on a loaded DA/SA gun in Limited division? Versus hammer back safety on.

Basically, Limited doesn’t have the “If it isn’t listed as OK then it’s not allowed” rule that Production has. So if it isn’t prohibited in the Limited appendix  then it’s legal. Therefore, it’s legal for a Limited gun to start in any of the configurations listed in 8.1.2. 

 

Note that if your gun is DA/SA with a deckocker and no safety, then hammer down would be the only allowable way to start- you can’t ever start hammer back without a safety on a loaded start.

Yes you can if you want to.

If you need a rule, try this: 8.1.2.3 “Selective action” – chamber loaded with hammer fully down, or chamber loaded, and hammer cocked with external safety engaged (see Divisions in Appendix D).
