    New to Polish P-83

    I just bought me a P-83 and I noticed the hammer does not touch the firing pin

    Is this normal or is there a problem

    1. What's a Polish P-83?
    2. When is it that the hammer doesn't touch the firing pin? Always? Or only when the trigger isn't pressed?
    3. Does it have a safety lever? Is the safety "on" or "off"? Maybe the safety keeps the hammer away when it's "on."
    4. Have you tried firing it? What happened?
    5. From whom did you buy it? Didn't that person or store explain the gun's workings? Why not?

    Got a picture?

    You know, a shiny one that's been polished.

    Good questions, BTW.

    You are aware of the part about pulling the trigger, aren't you?

    Legitimate questions that, for some reason, got me tickled as I read them. I don't know why.

    This isn't one of those polish jokes, is it?

    ...Especially since the OP hasn't been around for four days.
