Double action first shot with 740 Slim
I really like the size and feel of the 740 slim. I don't like the fact that the first shot trigger action is different than all my other pistols. I have found that I can assemble the weapon with a round in the barrel and have the double action first round that I am used to. In order to do this the extractor has to be placed under the rim of the bullet before assembly. If the slide is only retracted far enough to re-engage the slide lock the weapon will not cock and will function in double action mode on the first round. I realize that this assembly process increases risk during the loading process but I am willing to accept the risk in a controlled environment in order for all my weapons to perform the same in an uncontrolled environment. My only concern is that I may be bypassing an internal hammer block or some other safety feature that I am unaware of. Can anyone tell me if that is the case?
