Safe in both case, in theory
The springs will loose its "spring" through work, being repeatedly compressed back Zander forth

But technically, a gun is safer if not cocked, no mags and all, than if cocked and on safe

Long story short:
Treat it as a real gun->
mag out, empty chamber, returned to battery/uncocked
