English to Arabic translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Military / Defense / Guns and shooting
English term or phrase: Cock
The term is mentioned in a text about pistol 7.65 mm caliber..
"Cock" in a pistol is a part which is pulled when taking aim and getting ready for shooting..

Many dictionaries call it "الزناد" But if "cock" means زناد" so what is the meaning of trigger!.
Your help is highly appreciated...
But plz ..The text is highly technical, and no need for guessing...Thanks very much for your help

AND if you can provide me with a useful link about guns in Arabic and/or English,it is highly appreciated.
