Well, Ive been browsing this forum after being sent over by VTDW, because I have a problem with my 336-30/30. I was loading it to go hunting and the lever got stuck in the open position, which it has done before. A little elbow grease and I had it back down, but then it would not latch. I checked and tightened all the screws, still no luck, but it would dry fire when held shut, so I wasnt to worried. Well, I went out to shoot today and discovered that while it will dry fire fine, if you chamber a round, it will not fire, only slightly denting the primer...My total knowledge of the action and functions of the rifle are about none, I have removed the bolt and lever, nothing looked out of place, but then, I dont have anything to compare it to. Is it possible that when I put the bolt back in, I somehow dis-engaged the two piece firing pin?
