    "Tilted barrel" sounds like Locked Breech, the "non-pre-cocked striker block" makes no sense to me.
     
  3. I think that means double action, As in the striker isnt ready to fire when you load the gun.
    Is this the same writter from fox that said the Judge got its name from all the Judges that carry it into court rooms? seriously that one had me :rofl:

    I find it interesting that they claim the striker is "non-pre-cocked" but that the trigger has a 6 pound pull and a 6mm travel. That seems quite optimistic for a pull weight and travel if the striker is "non-pre-cocked."

    Your trigger/striker options are:
    1. Light weight pull
    2. Short travel
    3. Not pre-cocked

    Pick any two.

    Most firearms journalists use tilt-barrel to describe the glock-style Lock up on the polymer guns, while not technical it's become "correct"

    "Non-pre-cocked" means the striker isn't under tension at slide cycle like the hk vp9 I believe, it tensions during trigger pull, like a Glock.

    I'll echo what's been said.

    Tilting barrel translates to locked breech and non-pre cocked most likely means it has a trigger similar to Glock's where the striker isn't technically cocked because it isn't under tension.
