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?

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.

Ok I cleaned out all the rust and it's real clean now. I cleaned it out only to find out that there really wasn't even a set screw there. Where can I get this set screw on the timing rod? Anyone know? Also, the ball detent on this cocker is worn the hell out. Can you guys tell me which one is better out of these three? Check It Ball Detent Assembly - Fits: WGP Autococker - Silver or WGP Autococker Ball Detent - Silver or CP Custom Products Ball Detent - WGP Autococker - Nickel
