  • DAO or Double/Single Action?

      I just sent off a 586 to Clark Custom Guns to build new PPC revolver. I have all my equipment set up for L-Frame so I think I'll stay that way.

      Back when I had my first (and only) PPC custom revolver made, I had the gunsmith bob the hammer and make it double action only. Why? I didn't know, it looked cool and thats what he suggested. At the time I had never shot a 1500 match. Heck, I didn't think they allowed you on the line with a stock gun. So I've been shooting DAO in PPC for a while now. When I called Clark about my new gun I found that they keep the single action function when working the trigger action. They could make it DAO if I wanted, but according to them it wouldn't change the smoothness of their work either way. I decided to keep the single action.

      This made me think. What do the rest of you folks shoot at the 50 yard line? Single Action? or Double Action? Even though I shoot double action at the 50, its not the same double action that I shoot in the faster stages. I find that at the 50 I'm indexing the cylinder, holding, then checking my front sight before I fire the shot. My current gun has a little more creep in this DAO mode than would a standard single action pull. I wonder how I'll do with a straight single action pull.
