Can anyone here eject an empty case and chamber a fresh round WITHOUT cocking the hammer of a 1911, 10/22, Mini-14, CAR-15, or other popular hammer equipped auto?andy said:bs, you are fos. MOST autos eject and chamber with a shorter bolt stroke than will cock the hammer.
Most hammer equipped auto's have the hammer behind the bolt. As the bolt moves rearward it cocks the hammer past the cock notch. When the bolt returns forward the hammer rotates slightly forward until the sear engages the hammer's cock notch.
Maybe 1911sr or RIKA will be kind enough to explain this to andy.
