    By your description of its operation the third round may not be cycling the bolt far enough to cock hammer back. Will the hammer drop on the third round or just nothing? A weak or broken sear spring can do this. I would do a major cleaning including partial disassembly. Checking all parts making sure they move freely thru full movement of operation.

    It could be what Fordtrucks said. When you pull the trigger when it fails to fire, does the trigger move until a "click" (the hammer hitting the pin) or does the trigger move freely and do nothing as if it is not cocked?

    Yes I noticed the charging lever does not want to return all the way when it chambers the next round. I can pull it back, and let go it will stop just before it closes all the way..??

    Stock/Action screws are too tight...read this, it oughta help ;)

    Or heck...I'll just cut to the chase...
    loosen both screw until...well...loose.
    then tighten to finger-tight...as in, tips of fingers on handle of screwdriver instead of gripping it like a motorcycle throttle.
    Test.
    Now tighten in 1/4 turn increments on each screw and test...
    until it starts to stick...then back off 1/4 and your rifle will be Right On the Money.

    This is why I pillar-bed every rifle I own, saves having to play torque games with stock/action screws
    and gives you the same consistant hold on your rifle every time...
    as we all know, Consistancy is KEY to sub-MOA shooting...even with rimfires :)

    After much trial and error I found that was also a problem I encountered on one of mine a we bit ago.

    Yep the action travels alot smoother now I am going next weekend to test it out. When I had it apart everything looked ok recoil spring, firing pin, etc so maybe this cured the problem.. I removed the bolt, and recoil spring as that is where most of the crud was hiding..
