It sounds to me like the sear was never engaging. The gun was, as designed, pushing the striker back to cock it as the bolt was opened, but then the sear never engaged it to hold it in the cocked position. So when the bolt was closed, it allowed the striker to return to the "fired" position.

I would guess that the sear and/or striker engagement surfaces were broken or worn.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
