    Double action triggers in some firearms means the trigger performs several functions.
    pulling the trigger on a revolver for example, raises the hammer, rotates the cylinder, and fires the weapon.
    A single action pull is one where the trigger is used only to fire the weapon.
    With air guns i only know them as single or two stage triggers, most good quality air guns are two stage.
    On a single stage trigger the gun should fire the gun as soon as you pull the trigger.
    On a two stage trigger you have 1st stage travel, then 2nd stage fires the gun.
    So you would pull the trigger through the first stage and when you feel the trigger stop you know your at second stage and the gun should fire with the slightest movement of the trigger.
    Hope that makes sense. :D

    On guns like the Walther cp88 it refers to the fact that you can either pull the trigger normaly and fire in auto mode or you can cock the hammer and then fire the trigger (much better accuracy and lighter pull)
