WGP 99 cocker doesn't shoot when trigger is pulled slowly

I have a 99 cocker with a slider frame and I noticed that in youtube videos, when people pull their trigger slowly on a cocker, it still fires. Mine doesn't do that. When I pull the trigger slowly, all that happens is the back block goes back like its recocking the gun. I'm making sure that it's a full trigger pull and not a short stroke. The back block is in the right position and so is the cocking rod. I can't test if it's timed because of this problem. What's wrong here?
EDIT: It does shoot normaly when I actually pull the trigger.

Sounds like your sear lug might be too low. But changing that means changing the timing, so you need to retime.

The lug is at the right spot, it fires at halfway point. So what could it be?

Your timing is off. Adjust the timing rod accordingly. Since you are using a slider frame, you will need to screw the collar on the timing rod outward so that the markers re-cocks later.

I got just one problem. That whole thing is rusted shut. Anything I could do about that? Where can I get a timing rod that'll fit a 99 cocker?

All full size Cockers use the same timing rod.

What kind of trigger do you have? Stock slotted trigger plate, or an aftermarket one with just a hole?

Here's a picture of it. I think it's an aftermarket on. It's a benchmark frame.

This is how bad the timing rod is, bouta put wd-40 on it and try to pick it off with a o-ring pick or something.

If you can't change the timing rod, you can raise the lug a bit so that it fires at the beginning of the pull.
