Default Savageaccutrigger not working correctly?

I recently acquired a Savage rifle with the accutrigger, but I'm afraid it isn't working correctly. I was under the impression that the main trigger would not move unless the accutrigger was pulled back first. But, I am able to pull the main trigger without moving the accutrigger mechanism.
Anyone have experience with this trigger system? Is it something I can work on? Would it be a warranty issue that Savage would take a look at? Am I even correct in assuming that something is wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Don't know the answer but here's a good vid to explain how it works.

Does moving the main trigger without the safety being pulled first let the firing pin fall? If it does, I would suspect a warranty issue. If not, it may be like a lot of guns that will let you pull the trigger with the safety "on" without letting the gun fire.

It is working correctly.

The middle trigger safety is simply a stop for the main trigger/sear. The main trigger will release from the sear and move a little bit but the middle trigger safety will catch the real trigger and prevent the gun from firing.

The video above shows this very well.

Thanks for the help guys. I'm still going to try and take it in to a Savage dealer (I need to get the screw to adjust the trigger pull anyhow). It probably won't get any use this year, but hopefully it will take a big'n next year in Kansas.
