Yes and yes. The striker version, which was the earlier is cocked by movement of the top lever and the pivoting hammer version is cocked by breaking the barrel. Neither version has a half-**** or any way to intercept the hammer or striker if it is not fully cocked.
The 219 is not alone in that, I saw a friend get a rude surprise when he broke his over & under shotgun just far enough to reload the top barrel and snapped it shut, BLAM!

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

If I ever own another 22 Hornet, it will become a k hornet in very short order.

If your rifle is chambered for K-Hornet, will it shoot standard Hornet rounds well?
