Not sure. Does the trigger engage the half cock slot?

I can feel the trigger sear hit the half cock notch, but the hammer forces the trigger backwards and out of the notch.

Clean off both hammer and trigger. Smear a small dab of grease on trigger where it touches hammer. Assemble and work action. Disassemble and look for tell-tale fingerprint.

You can do the same with a felt marker.

Good point. One pass with an acetone rag and it's clean.
