So the owners manual of Ruger Max 9 says that the manual safety locks the slide, the trigger, and the sear. I have visually and physically confirmed this. I was reading about the “design flaw” of the P365’s striker block and started wondering about the Max 9’s because they seem similar in design.

Basically, someone argued that if a piece of the striker broke off there is no fail safe to keep it from making contact with the firing pin because it is dependent on the one side that sticks out to be held in place by the blocker.

The Max 9 seems to have the same setup but the sear is locked in place by the manual safety. So my question is if for some ridiculous reason the striker broke in a way that doesn’t allow it to be held in place by the blocker, would having the locked sear by the manual safety keep it from going off?
