I have a Pietta 1860 replica that has done the same thing. I agree with Gary that the bolt is popping up early and peening the flute. However, when the bolt finally locks in the notch, everything is lined up and the gun shoots very well. In addition to that issue, my 1860 will not allow the hammer to be drawn back and cocked on the first try. I do not know if the two conditions are related, but they amount to a quality control problem with Pietta that sometimes leads to their arms not being held in very high esteem.
