When firing--the trigger will pull, the hammer goes click but no round fires.
Plenty of flinching takes place when a live round is in battery! There is no light primer strike noted when inspecting cartridge after manual ejection. The bolt assembly must be in battery--it seems to slam forward and be in proper position when loading a round or when dry firing. I should be able to disassemble the rifle to inspect the firing pin. Stay tuned.
I believe this is a M100 carbine model as well.
