View Full Version : 40 or 45 with trigger disconnected safety?

07-27-2009, 6:21 AM
A guy at work knows me as a gun guy. He wants a new carry gun. I need your help to maintain my reputation. :43:

He wants the ability for the trigger to be "turned off" so the trigger will travel backwards and not fire. I think rugers do this, right? I cant remember. Any other makers that are in higher reguard in the carry world. He currently carries a glock. Also he is not limited by Ca. allowed handgun list firearms...not in Ca.

Thanks fellas

this is available on the usp and the springfield 1911s (at least). there is a little key supplied with the gun and you can lock out some portion of the trigger mechanism.

Yes, but the USP key lock is not very useful in a carry gun.

Beretta 8040 or 8045, probably used these days, or the Stoeger (http://www.stoegerindustries.com/firearms/stoeger_cougar.php) versions will do that. They use a combo decocker/safety.

I have a p95 with a safety. It works just like you described. With the safety on you can pull trigger all the way back and it won't fire. There are p90(45acp), P345(45acp) and p944(40s&W) that are the same way. Got to say though the p95 is pretty fat at the frame right where the slide stop goes through.
