It sounds like the little lug that retains the safety (and the firing pin) broke off or wore down. The rifle cannot be fired that way, but I don't blame you for not wanting to try.

That S&B ammo, unlike the low power American 8mm, is loaded to German WWII specs and is right hot; the recoil in those light Carcanos is nasty.
