    Have you removed the trigger group and see if it is functioning properly?

    I suspect you might have a broken firing pin, if you not getting any indentation on the primers.

    Trigger is just fine. That's the first thing I checked. I thought it might be the firing pin... -Aaron Schneider

    Is it leaving any mark on the primers at all?

    BT-100's are known for breaking firing pins. The new ones are upgraded!!

    Remove the barrel and trigger group, face receiver down as if you are shoot the ground. Put your finger in the trigger opening and depress back of firing pin and see if the tip protrudes from recoil face. If it does not stick out, then it's broken. It can still be broken and fire providing the tip which is about 3/16 long is still trapped in the firing pin hole.

    Cock gun, remove barrel and forend, turn gun upright, place empty shell on breech face, pull trigger. Empty casing should fly up around 2 ft!!

    Ok, I'll give it a shot... -Aaron Schneider
    EDIT: It looked like the hull was sleeping quite peacefully even through the loud "CLICK!" the gun made when I pulled the trigger...

    There's a guy on this site that sells spring kits and firing pins.
    J&P order two sets and keep one in your shooting bag. There's usually
    someone around that can change them. They are cheap enough.

    Check your ejection rod. Mine bent and did the same thing you are describing.

    If you are a reloader, make sure your primers are not being seated to deeply, also check to make sure your mainspring [hammer spring]in your trigger assembly is not broken or weak, it will get weak after a while and when it is left cocke for a long periods of time. Very simple fix to replace spring.

    Is this the first ever time you had this gun out?

    I step up to shoot my new gun tonight and it just goes "CLICK!"

    My buddy had the same thing happen to his BT-100 a couple of weeks ago. He took the receiver and placed it in a ultrasonic cleaner and cleaned it real good a couple of times. He then soaked it in mineral spirits a few hours and then wiped it down and blew it out with air. It was crud inside the cocking rods that was keeping the gun from re-setting completely. There wasn't anything wrong with the firing pin at all.
