Savage 333 12 GA O/U won

I have a Savage model 333 mfg by Valmet 12 GA O/U and it is currently functioning like a single shot. When I fire it does not cycle over and allow me to fire the 2nd barrel until I reach down to the trigger and push the barrel selector button and then I can proceed. This condition came on over a period of a few weeks. At one point I removed the trigger assembly from the stock, sprayed with gun oil and it was okay but now it is a totally manual procedure.

Any ideas on where I should be looking?

Thanks
Chris

Is the safety going on or partially going on? I'm not sure if all of them are the same but I had one in my shop recently that had similar problems. At some time someone had tried to disable the automatic safety but with that design it has to function. I you pull the stock and watch it operate you may be able to see the problem.

CCW, we're getting close! the automatic safety seems to be working fine and I don't detect any sloppiness. I read elsewhere about only changing the barrel selector on this model when the gun is broken open. When I do this and select the under barrel first it cycles correctly and automatically allows me to use the over barrel. I did this successfully 3-4 times and then selected the over barrel first and it still requires me to manually select the under barrel after I fire the over barrel.

Strange?

Do Like CCW1911 says and look at it first hand, also see if the trigger assy is dragging on the stock, it may need to be relieved a little.

I've got the stock off and the behavior is the same. I don't see anything different in the mechanics with under barrel first vs over barrel first. Unfortunately it only works correctly when the under barrel is selected as the first to fire.
