    Thank you everyone for your input. I believe I have it fixed. Decided messing with it after being awake for 24hrs was a bad idea. Slept and then got back on here. Pulled the cocking piece back rearward and pulled the trigger and allowed it to fall. Reassembled the rifle and cycled the bolt several times. Seems to be in working order now.

    Good to hear that you got it open.

    This rifle should have at least a 4 lb trigger, measured by is ability to vertically pick up a 4 lb. weight and not release the striker. If the trip weight is much less than 4 lbs. (like 2 1/2 lbs) then the sear/striker engagement has likely been "messed with" and the trigger cannot be considered safe. Manual safeties and safety catches do not always function correctly, and are not to be relied upon.

    Be safe, not sorry.
