If it is closing all the way then I would say that it is the firing pin, I would get it to a gunsmith and have then lengthen it and it will probably be fixed.

I have a drill bit that it the proper size for fireing pin holes I use as a go no-go gauge of sorts. also a good thing you can try is to spray it out with a NON-CLORINATED brake cleaner and then hit it with compressed air in case there is something you can not see holding things up. this particular one has about 1000 rounds thru it and not one problem so far.
If you get no dent at all then check the bolt. there is a recess in the barrel where the Extractor closes into and then turns to the other side of the opening when the bolt is fully closed. make sure this is happening. It is hard to crud one up enough to keep the bolt from closing but it possible. also check the ridge inside the barrel chamber where the shell rim hits. Scrape it out if there is crud in there too
