Is this a timing issue
Hey guys, I believe this rifle has a timing issue, see the video: (dog is squeaking her toy)
It's been happening but I wasn't to concerned with it since when I dry fire and shoot I cycle the action, however I recently put a Trigger Tech 2 Stage trigger in it and noticed in the manual it warns that a action with improper timing can cause damage the trigger.
Thanks for the help.

There could definitely be some work done to improve the timing, but its difficult to tell how much from the video. Looks to be maybe 30 thousandths cock on close? maybe more?
If the cocking piece isn't coming back far enough to let the sear come up all the way... maybe? Does it
still fail to catch when you cycle the bolt? Otherwise it's just plain old sear engagement problems in a faulty trigger.
@orkan it'll catch when the bolt is cycled. The bolt only has to move a very small, almost imperceptible amount back after unlock and it'll catch, you can hear it in click when it does it.
It did the same thing with the factory trigger and the triggertech (which was super tight to install, not sure how common that is barely got it in there)

I know nothing of the timing, but I have some experience with trigger fit from coating rifles.
Some triggers are tighter than others. Sometimes it is the action and other times it is the trigger. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a snug fit, but you shouldn’t have to hammer the trigger into the action. I coat the “trigger slot” on rifles to avoid corrosion and even with the 0.001” of coating don’t have too much trouble getting triggers back in.
Trigger pins are often quite snug too and therefore sometimes difficult to get it. Most of them are tapered on one end or the other to make it a little easier.
@dddoo7 never even thought of the coating this is Cerakoted from the factory. It was snug but I didn't have to hammer it in.

Then it sounds like you could benefit greatly from having that cocking piece worked to improve timing/function.
