After all, this was still the age of the single-action revolver; double-actions were just coming into their own, and semi-automatics were yet to be embraced by most shooters. Central to the Luger’s operation was its toggle-link action. Consisting of two ball-of-the-thumb-sized steel knobs on either side of a reciprocating, two-piece toggle (by which the bolt could be grasped and manually pulled back to either cock the gun, clear a jam, or chamber a round), the rearward force from the detonating cartridge drove the straightened link (which was attached to the barrel, which also briefly retracted with the breech), backwards, until it reached a “breaking point” where both pieces were joined.
Even though the Frontier Scout resembled the Model P externally, internally it was a different gun. The post-war spring-loaded push pin that held the cylinder base pin was replaced by a lookalike screw, which required a screwdriver (included with each gun), for removal. The action was simplified by having only two screws—one for the hammer, the other for the bolt and trigger—instead of the Peacemaker’s three. Finally, the firing pin was inset into the frame, rather than allowed to protrude from the hammer.
Most notoriously, the trigger pull was extremely heavy, and, when the gun went off, it had a nasty habit of biting the hand that held it—yet another trait the Hi-Power inherited from its inventor’s Government 1911. Specifically, unless the pistol was held just right, the hammer spur could punch the web of the hand, between the thumb and the index finger, with each shot. This same anatomical area was also in danger of getting pinched as the slide cycled. Additionally, some shooters familiar with the 1911 objected that there was no grip safety, although like the 1911, the hammer did have a half-cock position.
