      70s Combat Commander question

      Bought a new Satin Nickle Combat Commander in '72...I'm a lefty and seems to me I carried hammer down on a loaded chamber...no ambi safeties then and I didn't trust half-cock....does anyone know for sure if there was a hammer block back then or was that unsafe????

      With the Series 80, Colt added the firing pin block. You could say that it was a bit unsafe to have one up the pipe & hammer down, but it seems that it worked for you.
