Default Rossi Overland Troubles

Hey Everyone. A while ago me and my dad dug up his old Rossi Overland Double barrel break action shotgun. We took it to the farm to shoot, and it worked great. A few months later we take it out again, and the right side wont fire. Im not sure whats wrong, but could someone help me get to the bottom of this? The hammer goes back and forward without trouble.

sounds like something restricting the firing pin.
if you cleaned it and let your solvent run into the pin, it may just be gummed up
or rusted so it can't move.

I would make sure is no grime deep into the area around the firing pin. That may cause a light strike.
