I suspect an attempt by a previous owner or an amateur "gunsmith" to work on the trigger pull with the result that the sear won't drop far enough to release the cocking piece. The OP says that the trigger is pulled but won't release the firing pin, which does not sound like grease in the bolt.

FWIW, that rifle could be dangerous and I suggest having it checked over by a gunsmith or by someone knowledgeable on those rifles.
