    Yes and No... it can however the hammer is in the cocked and the safety will be in the fire position. SO unlike the 1911 you cannot lock it in the cocked position. If you return the safety to the safe position it will also return it to double action on the first shot.

    I don't know if you've ever had the opportunity to fire a triple or fast action semi-automatic but that is the best of all worlds when it comes to cocking mechanisms. Here is why_

    1. Cock the hammer
    2. Push the hammer back to the seated position, a light touch is all you need.
    3. Even though the hammer is in the seated /closed position it is still cocked, even though it looks like it is not.

    When ready to fire:

    1. Very lightly pull on the trigger and the hammer will fall back quickly to a displayed cocked position (even though it is already cocked the hammer will fall back with a light tap on the trigger to let you know it is still cocked).

    2. Follow through with a complete trigger pull to fire the weapon or simply push the hammer back to the seated but cocked position.


    I love the fast or triple action feature.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daewoo_DP51
    The Daewoo DP51 is a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol produced by Daewoo Precision Industries of South Korea. It is a compact, lightweight pistol with an unconventional trigger mechanism called "fast action". The frame is composed of an aluminum alloy with a matte finish, while the slide is of blued steel.
    The "fast action" trigger mechanism allows a cocked hammer to be pushed to its down position while still keeping the mainspring compressed. A light pull on the trigger causes the hammer to flick back, after which the pistol would behave in conventional single-action (SA) mode.

    The pistol can also be fired in conventional single- and double-action (DA) modes.

    The "fast action" mode allows the trigger travel of DA mode and the trigger weight of SA mode. This allows a more accurate first shot due to the lighter weight of the trigger. It is also safer due to the longer trigger travel required to fire the pistol.

    The factory magazines are 13-rounders. Smith & Wesson 59-series magazines purportedly are compatible with the DP51.
    The pistol also has ambidextrous safeties and 3-dot sights.

    It is also equipped with a firing pin block; the firing pin is blocked from moving forward unless the trigger is in its rearmost position.

    The Daewoo K5 9mm was developed in 1990. It is recoil operated and uses a conventional Browning-type locking system. It is mostly carried by Commissioned Officers in the Republic of Korea Army, and is standard service sidearm for ROK Police.

    WOW! I had NO IDEA the design was based on the CZ-75! What a shear coincidence as I mentioned in my range report above the only gun I enjoyed firing more was my buddies,,, CZ-75 (Butta)!

    I 've learned something today. Thanks for that Wikipedia info.

    What is the availability of carrying accessories? I tend to like guns that are in relatively low demand. Therefore, nice holsters and magazine holders are ALSO in low demand.

    Accessories

    Basically, anything for the CZ-75 or CZ-40 should fit it.

    Holsters, for the most part, are 'SUPPOSED' to be a custom accessory. However, I did a little research of my own and found that holsters that will fit the Glock 17 pretty much have the same trigger guard and can accomodate the guns overall design. I have been using a Bianchi and a Roys Leather interchangablely for the Glock 17 and both fit very well.

    Interesting. FWIW, I find that holsters (leather ones, anyway) designed for the Glocks are a near-perfect fit for a 1911. For example, the Galco Concealable for my Glock 27 fits my Kimber CDP-II Ultra [3"] nearly perfectly...a smidgeon looser, but that's not a bad thing.

    i do like the Tangfolio-inspired handguns (CZ, Armalite, Magnum Research, etc. ...). However, I prefer the frame-mounted safety as opposed to slide mounted variant for two reasons; the frame-mounted safeties enable cocked and locked carry and secondly, but most importantly, a frame mounted safety is intuitive to disengage. I carried a Beretta for years as a Marine and HATED the slide mounted safety. I would carry with the safety off because it was quicker into action. -my $.02
