BHP cocked, won't fire

BHP with external extractor will cock, but won't fire. I can activate the sear and spring through the mag well and the hammer will release. Otherwise, it won't activate by use of the trigger. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Did you check the trigger lever, the part that rises up when the trigger is pulled? It can come out of the slot and not hit the sear bar.

A copy of the parts schematic is at

Trigger lever

I tried that. Still doesn't operate properly. Thank you very much any way.

From looking at the schematic, the sear lever spring might be missing. Thanks again

It has a magazine disconnect so it won't fire without a mag inserted into the magwell or the disconnect is damaged somehow.
