Default Mossberg MVP LR .223 issue

Hey all, i recently bought a Mossberg MVP LR in .223 and so far i have put 50 rds through it in 2 sessions with it. Put 20 rds through first time out and got really good accuracy. Went out today and everything was fine for 30 shots. I let the rifle cool down for about 15 minutes and went to fire the 31rst rd and nothing but a slight click. No primer contact with firing pin. Tried again a few times and still a slight click but no ignition. It appears the bolt is cocked but not releasing the firing pin when trigger is pulled. Pulled bolt, and checked it and couldn't find a problem. Pulled barreled action out of stock and tried adjusting trigger and no help. Anyone else have this issue with their MVP? Mossberg appears to be less than i had hoped for in warranty as well as customer service. Thanks for any help.

Any idea what the issue was?? I've got the same rifle (without camo) and the last range trip went well.

Default Bolt issue

Dennis, only thing that make sense is somehow the firing pin assembly came back far enough to hang up on the cross pin it goes through and the striker assembly couldn't move forward. Bolt was easy to take apart to repair. You Tube!! A wealth of info. lol
