    Brand new, right out of the box.

    First round only with every magazine, I can hear and feel a weak click at the trigger break point, but it doesn’t fire.

    When I carefully release the trigger, I can feel and hear it reset. Then (without pulling the bolt again) it fires and functions normally for the rest of the magazine.

    Edited on Sunday. Totally hosed the gun out with degreasing solvent and now it seems fixed with a loud distinct hammer release on the first pull. Will confirm at the range later this afternoon.

    In 40+ years of buying guns I've never had a brand new one from the factory malfunction. Learned a lesson about "de-gunking" overly greased parts.
