Another Sig P232/P230 question

Can anyone tell me what the scoop is with the Sig P230 vs. the P232 and the "automated firing pin safety" that the latter incorporates? Does this imply that the P230 does not have a transfer bar type firing pin block? Is there any other mechanism that keeps the hammer off the firing pin, and off the chambered round?

Thanks in advance,

I don't know what you are talking about with the automatic safety. Mine has a de-cocking lever and is double/single action. The hammer does sit off of the firing pin when de-cocked or lowered manually. The way to describe it would be like two magnets resisting each other. I know there aren't magnets inside but thats what it feels like. Very safe pistol. The hammer only contacts the firing pin during normal shooting operations. The 232's are a very good pistol, easily concealed and accurate as any other. I have a bianchi IWB holster and the pistol simply disappears when it's on my belt. Hope this helps, feel free to contact me with any additional questions
