Slide Lock Safety

The Slide Lock Safety is located on the left of the pistol just below the rear of the slide. With the hammer fully cocked and the Slide Lock Safety applied, the upper part of the Slide Lock Safety engages the slide lock notch to prevent rearward movement of the slide, while an internal cam surface engages the sear to prevent forward hammer movement when the trigger is squeezed. This safety feature can be engaged only when the slide is completely forward and the hammer is in the fully cocked position. (Seethe illustration below.)
