    This pistol is a German made .22 Luger look
    alike that utilizes a flat sear and a firing pin block(what I would
    call a hammer)which engages the sear at a 45 deg angled edge. The
    problem is that unless the sear is released it wont cock. The firing
    pin block(hammer)wont slide back past the sear causing the toggle
    mechanism to jam. It seems like there should be some way for the sear
    to drop allowing the block to slide over and past it but the sear
    release isnt allowing it to unless the trigger is pulled. I have the
    parts illustration for it and have it taken down now and have been
    studying it hard but I just cant see how the action is supposed to
    allow it to cock. Can someone explain this to me?
