15-22 hammer pin walking disables safety.

Hi So I took my new 15-22 out yesterday and during the trip the hammer pin walked out the right side a bit, to the point only the right side was in the receiver and the hammer canted slightly. I noticed it when I accidentally forgot to turn off safety and it still fired. Once I worked the pin back in the safety functioned properly again.

So just a word of warning, not that you should be relying on the safety for any safety function but something to watch out for.
