I'm betting that it's either just really dirty, or maybe the drive spring guide pin is bent. I think those are the most likely, though the power tube could also be bent.


anyone else have other thoughts?

Other than what Chachi brought up:
If it has an RVA, it could be too far in.
Drive spring could be too long.
It could be missing the linkage pin.
Drive spring could be bent.
Rear bumper (if it has one) could be jammed in too far and stuck.
Worn sear (but since it isn't even loading, I don't think it's going back far enough to engage the sear.
Detent catching up on the bolt.
Damaged front or rear bolt.

Other than the bent power tube or damaged bolt possibility, I don't think it should be anything major.

Any number of possibilities, really. Bent drive pin or linkage arm or a ton of gunk in the receiver are the most likely culprits if it just doesn't pull back all the way. If it pulls back, but doesn't stay back, then it sounds like the sear isn't catching the hammer. That could be a broken or worn-out sear (or sear spring more likely), or (less likely) the hammer's shot.
