Changed this around as I got the concealed I was looking for. Selling now w/ a price of 725. Maybe admin. could change the prefix...? Or I can set up a different ad, whatever you prefer/is possible.

Reduced price to 700, takes mags, holsters and all. This pistol is immaculate and the extras make this a steal of a buy.

Yes, SAO. But you can drop the hammer to a half cock, release the safety lever and bring it back to full. This is essentially what the SFS system gives you.

Kinda OT, but I never really understood this system. What advantage does it give you over the original cocked and locked system? Is it for agencies that don't like SAO or something? I mean no disrespect at all, it's a beautiful HP and would buy it if I had the cash, just curious about the system.

I always thought OT meant overtime, but I'm guessing you mean something different. No disrespect taken. The reasoning behind the system is, at least I think, to give the user one more option. The SFS allows you to carry cocked and locked all day....like a standard Hi Power. But it also gives you the half cock, so for whatever reason you wanted to you could. Maybe that would be a low level situation like around the house or maybe that would be something certain agencies would require. Either way, the times that I carried it I loved it because it works as an external safety while limiting the disadvantages that such safety sometimes have...ie. longer operating time or whatever. I say it limits it in my estimation because its so much like the 1911 safety, just a small external wedge that is totally egonomic in respect to thumb placement. The lever to drop the hammer is just right there. So with a minor thumb motion you go from half cock to all business.

The other advantage that it acts as a decocking lever, only your thumb operates it. So...you're in full cock, press forward on the spring loaded hammer and you're immediately in half cock. As opposed to going through the whole drop the magazine, manipulate the trigger carefully and control the hammer scheme.

It's a pretty sweet system in the end. No complaints from me, and I have never heard of any documented problems elsewhere.
