I've read a few reviews on how their decock/safety mechanism works,and some reviews were different from others...Can someone that owns one explain it to me ? One review said they didn't trust it,while the others praised it... I just purchased a P-01,and should have it soon ....
The purpose of the decocker is to "safely" lower the hammer on a chambered round and return the trigger pull to DA. I don't trust the decocker to never fail which is why it's important to keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction when using the decocker. The muzzle should be pointed in a safe direction at all times anyway.
Congrats on your purchase!
CZ's website, which details the P-01's features, happens to include the verbiage of "safety" mechanisms along with the functional decocker lever. These safeties are nothing more than a firing pin block (which blocks pin from hitting primer unless trigger is pulled) and the half-cock position on the hammer (hammer will not move forward unless trigger is pulled). These features are standard on contemporary handguns for the most part.
