The one thing that needs to be made clear is that calling this a DAO is misleading. A more accurate description would be to call it a conventional Single Action semiauto with a restrike capability.
This pistol lacks any way to safely decock it. When you load the pistol, it is cocked; when you fire the pistol and it cycles, it is cocked. The only way to decock it is to drop the hammer by pulling the trigger.
Yes, if you happened to have a bad round in the chamber that failed to fire the first time, you can pull the trigger again and it will cock and drop the hammer - giving a restrike capability - but in the real world how often has anyone really seen a .40S&W round that will fail to fire initially and then will fire on a restrike??
Of course this is not the only so-called "DAO" semiauto like this, but it is probably the most obvious in that it has the exposed hammer rather than an internal striker.
