Hello I have a M1900 Colt pistol (pictured) has a safety sight, behind. The theme is a sure firing pin or just a gimmick, not to target? Greetings Carlos

Carlos, I do not understand your comment or question about the firing pin. What do you think is a gimmick? What is not to target?

Bit of a language barrier here. I think the OP means "safety" when referring to insurance. Carlos, this site might a little difficult to understand as it's in english but there are many good pics of the 1900 Colts there with the sight safety:

Colt Pistol Model 1900 38 ACP

This safety device was on the early 1900s but was deleted and usually you find that they have been removed by the factory. Original 1900s with the sight safety still intact are pretty rare.
Perhaps one of our members speaks spanish and maybe can help you understand a little better.

This is from Sam's site above: Sight Safety - locked in upward position, this functions as the rear sight. The sight safety and hammer were color case hardened.

Translated to Spanish (from an online translation engine):

Seguridad de vista - bloqueado en posición hacia arriba, esto funciona como el alza. La seguridad de vista y el martillo fueron endurecida de caso de color.

I hope this helps!

Nice gun by the way.
