So on a gun with a hammer, you pull the slide back which chambers a round and cocks the hammer back. If you push the decocker, it'll snap the hammer back into the decocked position. At that point, you can still pull the trigger and fire it as double action or simply pull the hammer back to prepare it to be fired again, correct?

Now on a gun without a hammer, such as a Walther P99 after a round has been chambered and the decock button has been pushed, I suppose to prepare it to be fired again you'd have to pull the slide back a second time, which will eject the chambered round and load a new one...right?

Just curious. I've never had any experience with a hammerless gun with a decocker.

As far as I know, hammerless guns do not have a decocker. The P7 kind of does...

But for the striker fired weapons I'm familiar with (Glocks, XDs) there is no decocker. But hey, maybe there's some kind of striker fired weapon out there with a decocker... although that would certainly seem pointless to me...

And here's a good example of the downsides of asking a Walther question on an HK forum.

Sorry I couldn't help you initially.

On the XD, you can rack the slide a very little amount (say, a half inch or so) to cock the striker. I would imagine the Walther would be the same way. You can't chamber a round with that, but you can recock the striker.

You can move the p99 back slightly (like 1/4") which will recock the striker after it has been decocked and will not eject the chambered round. it's pretty easy to do.
