This is a discussion on Is it OK? within the SIG Sauer Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Forum category; Is it ok to manually cock the hammer on a Sig p239 or does it weaken springs? Thanks ahead-of time. I am new to this ...

You're not doing anything the slide doesn't do when you shoot it...there is the slightest of chance that thumb cocking the hammer might put side torque to it but it should be low on the list of worries with your SiG...enjoy!!!

Thanks for the replies. My wife got me this gun as an anaversary gift four or so years ago. Up until that point I had never shot or owned a hand gun. Since I have gotten the pistol I have read, watched and listened to everything I could to better my knowledge about the Sig and shooting in general. Somewhere along the line, I came across the statement about manually cocking the hammer weakens springs. It struck me odd but what do I know? So that is why I asked the question. Thanks again.
