On my 308MX and 336D if I pull the trigger with the safety on the hammer will fall against the safety. The safety is there for carrying on safe and to allow the hammer to be lowered safely after chambering a round. Most people don't like the safety but it does offer a safe way to lower the hammer after chambering a round. A buddy of mine shot a hole through his tire after trying to lower the hammer on a lever action wearing gloves and the hammer slipped, which should be a good reminder to always point your rifle in a safe direction when doing that to begin with.
