With the value of a used Walther not being very high, repairs could exceed its value and turn it into an expensive paperweight.
Something is broken if this is occurring. There are two safeties that are engaged when the safety lever is set to safe. The safety drum physically blocks the hammer from being able to hit the hammer and a cam on top of the drum engages the firing pin which stops it from moving should the pistol be dropped or the hammer hit. In addition there is an internal firing pin block. S&W will repair it at no cost. M1911

Walther tightened up the safety years ago. Have not read of the safety rotating from the hammer dragging on the safety drum in years. Your safety ears should firmly click in the safe and fire positions. Never should movement of the slide move the safety position. Something was not right with BB61's pistol. Broken part, I do not see how a P22 can fire with the safety set to safe unless several parts are broken inside. Would be good to get an update, something that doesn't happen all too often. M1911
