I have 3 Colt revolvers. An Agent, a Cobra and a Lawman MkIII.

The Agent and Cobra have an interesting condition
After pulling the trigger, if I VERY slowly release the trigger, just before it is back in position, I can feel 2 clicks one after the other
If I stop at the first click, the gun will completely lock up and stay locked, until the trigger is fully released.
Yet on the Lawman, releasing the trigger is so smooth, that there is only the one click of the trigger re-setting and it's NOT possible to lock it up.

What is happening to the Agent and the Cobra, that they have these 2 clicks instead of one. And if you pull on the trigger between the 2 clicks, the guns lock up ?
I carry these 2 regularly, but I have sidelined them until I understand what is happening, and hopefully eliminate the lock-up if the trigger is pulled too soon.

Oh I know that you have to release the trigger completely for it to properly reset.
It's just that I was firing double taps on the Cobra, and the pistol had shifted slightly and consequently the trigger got trapped on the first click and didn't reset completely.

I was afraid that I had 2 triggers that needed fixing.
Particularly, when I tried it on the LAWMAN as well as my Smiths with no reproduction of the problem.

Knowing about it, made me more aware of doing proper trigger release.

But if that's the way the trigger is, I can adjust.
