Can anybody help? The Safety/Decocker does not decock the gun when put on safe. The safety works. The only way to decock is to put in an empty magazine and pull the trigger. S&W 1066

I thought the 1066 just had a firing pin block, not a decocker.

Hatch: One thing you might check is the grip panel binding the decock lever (side plate assembly), or the lever itself (bent or broken).

There is a user on this site by the name of
fastbolt
He's a S&W armorer and knows these pistols front and back.

You might send him a PM and see if he can help.
FWIW, the 1066 is not the DAO nor is it the frame-mounted decock model (which would need grip clearance for proper operation of the decock-specific lever) The 1066 is the shorter barreled version of the basic 1006 with the slide mounted safety/decocker.

If the safety is rotated DOWN and the slide is locked open and you let it fly to chamber a round, the safety should automatically decock this pistol upon chambering that round.

Hatchman, you likely already knew that, I posted it for others who might read and be a bit confused on the operation of this pistol.
