I just bought a mossberg 702 plinkster so we went shooting today I took my girl friend and my bother in law and my sister I took the AK and my shotgun also this was also my girlfriends first time shooting she actually got head shots at 25 yards with the 702 even with the stock being to long for her. I bumb fired my ak and it ran like a type writter but my shot gun (a model 300 akkar) had trouble firing it would make it would click but there would be no firing pin marking on the primers then after trying it a few times it would finally fire off the round I have no clue what the problem is there but I took her apart and the firing pin seemed normal so I have zero clue. Sorry there are no pics but for some reason I can't get any of them off my phone it's acting weird. But despite all of the bs with my shotgun it was still and awesome day none the less. :D

I had the same problem with a Remington 700 rifle. Just a click, no dent on the primers. It turned out to be--believe it or not--that the forend stock screw was too tight and prohibited the bolt from coming to a complete lock. I don't think your 300 has stock or takedown screws...but it might be something just as simple.

I'll have to look into make sure things are tight enough but not over tight I did install a side sadle for it that replaces the front trigger assembly pin but i never thought that could be it.
