"The carbine fired, extracted the case, fed a new round, but did not cock the hammer. "
I re-read the OP and this is caused by the sear not catching the hammer. Working the slide by hand it will.
If the bolt is going back far enough to extract the case and load a new round. The bolt is pushing the hammer back far enough. Bubba could have tried to lighten up trigger pull or playing with it to "go fast".
Replace the sear, would be my opinion.

This exactly. The hammer is NOT holding full cock and IS following the bolt down.

Sooner or later the system will hold just long enough to separate the bolt and hammer and then the hammer will smack the firing pin before the bolt rotates to lock up. It will be exciting. Briefly.

Then you will bleed and cry about the stock that split and the brass in your face from the melted case and your ruined safety glasses pock marked by molten brass and burning powder at 40K psi. You were wearing shooting glasses, right?

Scary stuff aside, STOP. Do not use it until competent repair. Its already been tested and fails safety.

No body can be expected to guess exactly right to tell you a simple fix without the trigger group parts in hand. The Depot answer is replace every part.

Tim,
I have a sear and you need a different slide spring if 9.25" is correct. A US GI slide spring is just over 10.25" long. So check the spring length again to be sure and PM me if you want any parts.
Thanks, Roger

The trigger assembly and spring are on their way back to the seller for repair.
