Decocking Uncocking The Revolver

Single Six Bisley Hammer

a. With the thumb controlling the hammer as shown above. (1) squeeze trigger to permit hammer to break free' (2).

b. When hammer is free, LMMEDIATELY release trigger (3). Then lower hammer slowly to its resting position completely down against frame (4).

The revolver is now in its normal carrying condition - hammer and trigger fully forward and transfer bar lowered out of firing position.

A CAIJTION: The hammer must be carefully eased fully forward before the hammer is drawn back to the full cock position for the first shot. The hammer should be drawn with a firm positive motion to the full cock position for each shot, thus actuating the working parts for complete indexing. Unless this procedure is followed in any single-action revolver, the cylinder is apt to be out of index when fired.
