View Full Version : Question for Tous.

I was watching a reality show and a police woman is trying to arrest this guy, and he starts fighting the lady and he tries to take her Glock. A good Samaritan runs to her aid, he takes the gun from the bad guy, and the narrator said he kept the Glock cocked and pointed at the bad guy. Tous, do you know how you keep a Glock cocked:dunno::faint::faint:

Hiya Okie. Yeah, don't pull the trigger. When a Glock is loaded and in battery, the striker is at about a half cocked position. Pulling the trigger completes the "cocking" then releases the striker. The press hasn't a clue. Dipwads that they are! :upeyes:

Hugh answered the question.
Traditional cocking involves drawing some component such as a hammer or the rotating portion of a bolt and compressing a spring to a point where another component, often called a sear, holds the hammer under tension and provides potential energy. Pressing the trigger moves the holding part, releases the tension and accelerates the moving part ... kinetic energy. For a pistol that uses a hammer, the hammer comes forward powered by the spring, strikes the end of the firing pin and pushes it forward.

Pistols and rifles that don't use a hammer, such as a Glock, to strike the firing pin (transfer of kinetic energy) use the firing pin (striker) itself as the motive component. The firing pin is loaded under tension o a spring as the slide come forward and as the trigger is moved to the rear, the firing pin moves back, increasing the tension until the mechanism reaches a 'tipping' point where the motive component is released and the spring imparts acceleration.

As noted, a bolt-action rifle uses the rotation of a portion of the bolt to supply the motive force.

Now, ask me how disconnectors work. :supergrin:
G'head. :supergrin:
