Before I send my son's BT-100 to one of the mentioned gunsmith's, I would like to know if the symtoms give any of you a clue what might be wrong.
My son has lost targets do to to many failure to fires in competion. Had a well trusted gunsmith in the midwest put in a new firing pin and spring. No change. Verses a failure to fire, it seems to be a failure to cock. Son can hear a click when closing gun and when he pulls the trigger it is slack and upon opening the gun it lifts vs. ejects the shell. I am suspect about the cocking lever or associated part. Let me add that this is a stainless BT-100 and the internals/trigger group/ cocking rod look brand new. No visible wear.
What do you think. The boy is 14 and is shooting in the mid-high 90s in Cap and 16s. Can't aford to lose one or two per hundred for a failure to fire violation.
