Accidental discharge

Hi!
I lived this bad experience two days ago... My Walther came back form the gunsmith, I couldn't load a cartridge into the chamber, so when it came back, I tried... Checked the weapon, clear, security was smooth (before it was very hard...), great!, one cartridge in the magazine, security ON, racked the slide, it didn't come back completely (0.5 cm were missing, so the gun still had a problem...), and when I touched the slide again, boum!
I understand now that as the security was ON, the hammer went back... probably a broken firing pin...
I am trying now to make understand the gunsmith that I made no mistake and that this weapon is dangerous...
Let you know.
Cheers !

Instead of arguing with the gunsmith, I suggest you return the gun to the manufacturer.

I would have called Walther (the "new" Walther) and asked if they could at least look at it.
