Bump with pics. This is what's happening.
(Ignore the duct tape, but do tell if it's not helping.)
This is what I assume the sear assembly is supposed to look like.
After assembling the sear to the frame (with the bolt all the way forward) and then reassembling the gun, I try firing it. Sometimes it fires once and upon another trigger pull doesn't fire, or it sputters and leaks.
This is what I end up seeing when I disassemble the gun again. As you can see, the trigger sear is inexplicably off of the bolt sear.
I'm at a loss on how to keep the trigger sear set underneath the bolt sear. Every time I take the gun apart after trying to tinker with it (hence, the duct tape), it slips off again.
Any help would be appreciated. I'd really rather not spend money on taking it in and having it fixed when I can see the problem clearly.
