It would take a pretty good hit on the hammer since it is held back by a steel block that moves out of the way only when the trigger is pulled. I suppose it could be overcome by a really hard blow since it bears against the lower part of the hammer and doesn't block in the same way as the bar on a double action revolver like a S&W.

You can easily check this function with an EMPTY gun. With the safety off pull the trigger all the way back (you can lower the hammer with your thumb if you don't want to dry fire) and continue to hold the trigger back. While the trigger is held back you can push the hammer forward to contact the firing pin and when you release it the hammer springs back to it's resting position. Now release the trigger and you will see that you can no longer push the hammer forward since the hammer block is now engaged.
