According to SamuelColt.net,” a revolver is a firearm that holds its ammunition in a cylinder containing multiple chambers that automatically rotate as the user fires the shots. The modern version of the revolver was invented by the famous American industrialist Samuel Colt in 1836.” Revolvers are either single-action or double-action. One thing that makes revolvers popular Macon handguns is that not much can go wrong unless there is a catastrophic malfunction: the round fires, the cylinder advances, and the next round fires.
To fire a Single Action (SA) revolver, cock the hammer back manually to shoot. Pulling the trigger releases the hammer and fires one round. Pulling the trigger back in a single-action revolver cannot cock the hammer. The hammer must be cocked in order to pull the trigger. Single-action-double-action (SA-DA) revolvers still have an exposed hammer that can be cocked, facilitating either shooting mode. Other handguns have an enclosed mechanism in the body of the firearm and are double-action-only (DAO).
Single-action capability is typically the preference of hunters or competitive shooters who need to be accurate. This is because it takes less effort to drop the hammer with the trigger in SA mode. Thus, the trigger pull is crisp and short. By contrast, when you fire the weapon with the hammer down, pulling the trigger through both phases of the action, the trigger pull is longer and grittier.
A double-action hammer-fired weapon requires you to either manually cock the hammer or engage in a longer trigger pull to cock the hammer and fire the pistol. If you choose this method, the trigger pull is heavier and can be difficult to complete. However, after you get the first shot off, every subsequent shot is single-action if you’re shooting a semi-automatic firearm. However, with a single-action pistol, the hammer is automatically cocked when you rack the slide. Double Action-Single Action (DA/SA) handguns work in DA or SA mode. The first trigger pull is DA. The trigger is harder to pull back in DA mode than in SA mode. After the first DA trigger pull, the following trigger pulls are SA. SA pulls are shorter and easier, and this mode stays in place until the firearm is empty or decocked.
Single Action Only (SAO) means that you can only fire the weapon in single-action mode. Typically, the term SAO refers to pistols. SAO hammer-fired pistols must always have the hammer back to fire. Double Action Only (DAO) means that you can only fire the weapon in double-action mode. Typically, the term DAO describes pistols.
