M91 Carcano won't fire.

A few weeks ago, I picked up an old Italian Carcano Long Rifle in 6.5x52mm made in 1900.

A few hours ago, I took it and a few other new milsurps to the range. They all shot great until I picked up the Carcano. I loaded the mannlicher clip and put in the rifle chambered the first round (Prvi Partizan 123 Grain Soft Point), pulled the trigger..... and nothing. I unloaded the round and discovered the primer was hit, so I figured it may have been the round, not the gun; However, it did the same thing to the next two rounds, so I was certain it was the bolt/firing-pin.

Anyone else have a similar problem? Is it something I can repair, or should I take it to a gunsmith?

Thanks.
