This gun has a very interesting "safety" system.
In the owners manual it states -
"The only time the manual safety is engaged is if you want to carry it in condition 1 (cocked & Locked)".
You 1911 guys can relate to that.
The rest of the time
"the hammer should rest on the action or safety thumb of the hammer".
"the manual safety can not be applied when the hammer is not cocked"
I like this "Safety" system.
There is a safety 1/2 cock position - which is how I will carry it.
