Jewell Trigger problem

Went out shooting with my cousin today and run into a major problem with my rifle. After shooting about 15 times today I put a round in the chamber went to pull the trigger and nothing happened. After removing my cartridge from my rifle I closed the bolt and the firing pin shoot forward like I pulled the trigger. Got my rifle home today and took it apart. I tried to go back through the instructions thinking a screw had backed out and allowing it to go off. I couldn't get the trigger to reset and the safety want engage. Has anyone run into this problem?

    Had it happen to me a few times. If you feel comfortable with your skills, take the side plate off, and find the piece that broke. Get a replacement, and put it back together. I suggest working on a clean white towel...
    I fixed a few that way. I can't remember the name of the piece that broke, but when I called Jewell, they knew what I was describing.
    The ones that I fixed have been without issue.
