A little more detail. When you pull the trigger do you hear a click? Or just nothing? Everyone will say clean it and then try it again. If you try again, after the first shot try to push the action closed more to see if it moves forward(it should not)(do this before you pull the trigger again). I would guess the action is not fulling opening to cock the gun or it is not fully closing so it will not fire. Or could be in the trigger assembly. One test would be to dry fire the gun and hold the trigger down when you fully open the action and let it close. Then release the trigger and try to dry fire again(it should fire).

Yes I did clean it and it did good for one full clip then it started acting up again

And when I pull the trigger the second time it sounds like the firing pin didn't reset unless I pull the bolt back and let it slam forward?

Could be your firing pin isnt latchin on the trigger spur, trigger spur isnt lockin into place, or it could be like i said before that the bolt isnt goin back far enough to engage the pin. The test pretty much eliminates that last problem though. If its even remotely expensive from the lgs quote id tell him to trade it on the 700 and give you the difference in cash/store credit.

Does the BAR use a gas retard system?

It sounds like the the retard setup is not allowing complete movement of the bolt to the rear.
