Default 457D ?

Has anyone seen a double strike capable DAO in this model?

The S&W DAOs do not have "double-strike" capability as they are partially cocked or pre-cocked when ready, whereas when the trigger is pulled releasing the hammer (either for real, or dry fire), if the slide does not reciprocate, then the action is not re-set.

See post #17 in this thread
3rd Gen S&W compact 45's? what to look for?
I don't know if it's double strike capable you would have to ask SmithNut, like the above post my 5943TSW is set up that way, but when I sent in my CS9 to change from DA/SA to DAO, they sent it back true DAO in that as long as a magazine is inserted the trigger will go and the hammer will operate normally and there is still a magazine safety if it's not inserted. I believe forum member Fastbolt knows of the CS series as being capable of doing this. You would have to ask him. If I could post a video I would but I'm just not that tech savvy, sorry.

The picture of the 457D in the other thread is the one I have seen before. The pistol looks to me like it has the slightly extended slide and beavertail to hide the partially pre-cocked hammer, which is the hallmark of the 3rd Gen DAO guns. If that is the system, it does not have second strike capability. I guess it would be nice if SmithNut would enlighten us.

A bunch of guys on the CPD have them. An uncommon pistol to be sure.

Neither my 457D nor my 6946 (both DAO police guns) have double strike capability.

Well here it is. Actually it says 457 and there is no D in the model number. Enjoy the pics

Thx for posting pics, great 457D, will you be waiting for the second strike confirmation to go shooting?

I have a copy on my hard drive of the 457D photo posted by Smithnut. His pistol has the extended slide. The picture of the 457 in this thread does not have the extended slide and also does not have the "D" in the model number so whether it has second strike capability is an open question but can be determined by pulling the trigger a few times with an empty chamber with an empty mag in the frame.

What determines double strike capability is apparently whether or not the hammer is pre-cocked. S&W made two version of the pre-cock, one with an extended slide and one without.

Default Here you go...

Pic of a M457D, purchased from a well respected member of this forum who works for the Chicago PD.



Can't say much about the other pic included in this thread, it may be for T&E, but it doesn't look like a DAO model...

The M457D in this old pic operated like all the other third gen DAO guns I've owned, it does not have double strike capability.

FYI

It is a DAO double strike capable. I bought it from the store that lots of CPD buy from. I know what I have and it's all mine.
