Well, it could be ammunition related. Or it could be a problem with the fire control systemn in the gun. Do you have primer dents?

Have a good gunsmith look it over before you proceed any further.

Welcome from MI!!

Can you hear the hammer strike? If you hear nothing it's probably an issue with the trigger group. If you do hear a strike, you may want to remove the bolt and check to see if the firing pin moves freely through it. Packing grease my have gotten in it and is restricting movement. While you have the trigger group out check it as well to make sure the hammer locks down when pulled back and springs forward when the trigger is pulled. If it does snap back and release when the trigger is pulled does it feel like it has much tension on it (this is harder to explain unless you are familiar with the assembly). It should feel like it's going to hit enough to actuate the firing pin.

Welcome to the forum from NY.

Sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your O/U.

Even though it's used I would give Joe Zaker a call. He's our contact at Mossberg.

I remember a while back reading about a firing pin problem with the O/U Mavericks.

Here's his contact info,,,,,
