Any One Ever Done This? (Trigger Hammer Catch)
 
I was practicing my trigger control and I stumbled upon this. It takes the perfect amount of trigger control and concentration to make it happen.

You can see in the video where the hammer is cocked to the rear. I then began applying a very slow and steady pressure and there is a point where the hammer releases but the trigger catches. As this happened you can see me lowering the hammer by simply letting off the trigger.

I don't recommend doing it in a life or death situation (although I have heard rumors that some police back in the day were trained on this method).

I do it with my 442 BUG when doing my annual quals from the 25yd line. I have to shoot 12 shots from the 25 with a DAO jframe and holding the trigger to lockup and then giving a final squeeze helps me get all 12 shots in from the 25.

I dont do it any closer than that though.

Thats not exactly whats going on here. I am cocking the revolver back in single action. Then I apply a very slow and steady pressure until the trigger breaks and the hammer begans to fall but there is a point where you can actually catch the hammer with the trigger and decock the revolver. I basically decocked the revolver using the trigger.

That is because some moron has FUBAR'd up the single action notch. :upeyes: More chaff than wheat on youtube re gunsmithing.

That would have had to have been ruger then because I havent touched it, but thanks for the info

When my Redhawk was brand new, I was checking the hammer release in SA one day and noticed I could feel it slightly catching against the trigger as it fell forward. I called Ruger and they wanted the gun sent in. They replaced the hammer & trigger.

Stop using the gun and call Ruger.

Wouldnt be the first time something got out of the factory that shouldnt have. It does sound like you have something that shouldnt be there too.

I had a S&W model 29 that had a super smooth DA trigger, and a super light SA trigger. Whoever fitted it went just a tad far, as you could put your thumb on the hammer and "push" it down when cocked, which is a no no.

No biggie, I dont shoot revolvers SA anyway. I filed the SA notch, as well as the hammer spur off, and shot as it was meant to be shot. :)

If I were you, that gun would be on its way back to Ruger.

Same here. Doing what the OP describes is an ND waiting to happen.

Quigley 10-07-2012 15:21

There is no way a ND could happen from this. Unless I was doing dry fire practice with a loaded gun

What if it did that when you were REALLY hoping it would go bang?

Send it back and have it taken care of.

That is the sear slipping off the SA notch, not a good thing. I have an OLD SW revolver that will do that.

If its cocked and your finger is off the trigger can you push the hammer down?

I just pulled out my my other revolver, Sp101 .22, and can't replicate it.

Stranger things have happened.

Quigley 10-08-2012 18:43

I couldn't replicate this accidently to save my life. As a matter of fact I cant even do it on purpose any more. It is a relatively new revolver so I am sure that it still has some breaking in needed. I just thought it was interesting, due to the intense amount of concentration and trigger control that it took to make it happen. Thanks to all for the replies though.
