is it aired up? The bolt will not catch the sear if not aired up.

try taking the internals out and checking the parts. the previous owner might have installed things incorrectly. theres a diagram here:

and also make sure you oil it up. not too much but enough to make it smooth.

Check the pump arm next time you pump it. If the stop and spring are too tight, they will keep the gun from cocking easily.

ok, so i tried it without the spring, with spring in far, all the way out, pump handle in and out, still same problem...when i pump it, i have to rotate the pump handle about 10-15* for the sear to catch

pics from the inside
