He's correct. All XDs are DA (double action only).a911scanner said:Jerry,
While I was a little fuzzy on this myself, your answer is right there,...if you're familiar with the XD's
Double Action Only
Double action-only handguns function essentially the same way as double action handguns, except it is not possible to manually cock the hammer.
AFAIK There is no manual hammer on an XD. I have the SC-9, and most of the pics I've seen around here are of harmerless XD products.
PS Anyone else that knows more than myself (of which there are many) please correct this statement if it's wrong.
Is the XD double or single action?
The XD uses what SA calls a USA Action Trigger System. This trigger is in reality a single action trigger by definition since the XD when cocked, the firing pin is fully compressed and when you pull the trigger it releases the firing pin. Now to be fair to the XD its trigger is designed to have what feels like a military two stage trigger. The XD has a smooth long take up and then hits an area where a little more force is required and then a crisp trigger break. The reset of the trigger is also long, so during the triggers travel it mimics a double action with a trigger pull of about 4-5lbs.
Not sure where you are getting this info.[TASF said:]
However, I KNOW the XDs are deemed "DAO". Just not sure why.
Don't worry about it. Just the normal process of aging. Short term memory (where are my keys?), eyesight, hearing, etc. They all deteriorate. Perfect eyesight when you are 20 or 30? You'll still need reading glasses before you are 50.[TASF said:Overkill]Delija,
Glad my logic is better than my memory...
No. A DA/SA pistol can be (or must be) cocked for the first shot by a full long hard pull of the trigger. Subsequent shots are single action since the rearward motion of the slide after the first shot cocks the hammer.jdavionic said:Wouldn't the XD be a DA/SA?
