New to the Forum, New non working Marlin 795 owner question

Hello everyone, I like the way this forum is set up. Glad to be a member!

I bought a Brand new Marlin 795 from "Big R". I took it out for the 1st time today and the trigger is dead, I didn't even get 1 round to fire. It doesn't dry fire either with or w/o magazine installed.

I bought this gun to train my kids gun safety/handling/accuracy and they were quite disappointed when it wouldn't function.

Is there something easy to fix on these? I really don't want to deal with "Big R's" NO return on firearms policy.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

A friend suggested I take my 795SS out and try to shoot it before I sent it back to Marlin, which I did. Low and behold my gun fired perfectly. I can not cock my 795SS if I do not chamber a round. This must be a safety precaution so a person does not damage the rifle by dry firing it. No mention was made of this anywhere so I did not know it. I carefully read everything before I was going to fire it. Now it is to cold to shoot in Michigan. Nest year I'll start firing some of the many rounds I bought for it. I still plan on shooting in the Appletree. Many thanks to all of you. Shoot safe.
