    It can be shot either way. I prefer the crispness of the trigger on SA

    I bought one so I can teach my grandson to shot, but the only way to shoot single action is to cock the hammer every time you want to fire.

    I don't know of any revolvers that go to single action without cocking the hammer? A semi auto cocks the hammer back by the action of the slide.

    FWIW... I think there was one made back in the late 1800's? But quite rare and odd.

    Once you cock the hammer for single action & fire it, it should stay in the single action mode. That's how it is on the S&W's & Colts etc

    Are you sure? What resets the hammer to the cocked position?

    There are some revolvers that have the hammer bobbed and are Double action only. If you can cock your revolver with the hammer then it should be DA/SA.

    S&W and Colt revolvers are definitely DA/SA. The only way to fire any revolver SA is to cock the hammer. Think cowboy revolver, they are all SA and have to be cocked after every shot. I'm not sure we're understanding what you are looking for. Can you tell us more?

    You have to thumb back the hammer to shoot in Single Action. Once the gun fires, you have to thumb it back again.

    The Mateba is a "semi auto" revolver, do a Google on it, it's hard to explain what it is, but it's a "self cocking" wheelgun.

    The Webley-Fosbury is the first of this type, very expensive for it's time, very complex and more complicated than a revolver needs to be.......a few were private purchased by British Officers in the 1880's but they were never widely used. VERY rare today, and if you can find one, very expensive.
