Maverick 30.06 firing pin issue?


Copper BB
Hello, I'm new to this forum. I purchased a Maverick 30.06 about 2 weeks ago and I went to my range to sight in the scope. The first two rounds fired with no issues. I could not fire after that. The firing pin is striking the primer of the cartridge, but not hard enough (it leaves a small indentation). I tried a number of cartridges trying to see if it was the rifle or the cartridge.

Before I send it back under warranty for repair, is this a common/simple problem to resolve? I searched the forum (admittedly very quickly), but I didn't see anything there.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you.
Welcome to the forum. I have done some online research on these rifles and have never heard of anyone else having this problem. I personally own and have shot this model rifle. The only problem I had was a bolt release lever. My suggestion is to call Maverick and notify them. Provide them with your contact information (email or phone) and request to speak with a knowledgeable technician. They will provide you with great customer service and fast shipping. Again, Welcome. :)
