Accumark trigger issue

Hello, I have a accumark in 300 weatherby and never touched the trigger.
I was cleaning the rifle tonight and when I put the bolt in I slammed it closed
and the firing pin released as if I squeezed the trigger. I tried it many more times
and it slam fires if I close the bolt hard. I tried turning the set screw in and the weight
goes up but still slam fires. If I bang on the stock or bolt it won't go. Only if I slam
the bolt closed. Any ideas what could be wrong? Scary thing is I've been using it for 2 years.
Thanks again

Re: Accumark trigger issue

Reading on the weatherby forum I backed out the sear engagement screw 1/2 turn
and took care of it. Scary thing though. Gonna check all my rifles. Thanks again.
