    Does G2c have double action like G3?

    Double action in G3 is big advantage, I bought one. Now I am thinking about buying G2.
    If G2 has double action, I'll buy it, if not I'll buy G3c.
    Thanks.

    Technically it's a "double strike" feature. Yes you could call it double action, but the pistol doesn't have a decocker, so it always fires single action. The only time you can use the double action feature is when you need "double strike" for a light primer strike or other fault.

    Yes. There is no way in normal function to operate the gun in double action. Double action is a "failover" if a round has failed to fire.

    IMO it's a marginally useful function. I've never had a hard primer that changed its ways with a second strike. Most likely in a combat situation, I'll still wind up pulling the trigger a second time before realizing the round didn't fire. But as soon as I notice the gun didn't go "bang," I'll tap and rack rather than continue to pull the trigger.

    Just so you're not confused, the G2 and the G3 operate the same.
    Both have "second-strike" capability, firing on the same round.
    I usually fire reloads at the range, and I have found the if a round doesn't fire the first time, it will fire on the second strike about 70% of the time.

    Restrike is an action if the round fails to fire, Double Action, Single Action are actions of the trigger pretty much referring to first action if the primer strike is light or fails squeezing the trigger a second time is an option.
