Is the sear in backwards? I don't think the groove is your problem. While you are checking the sear you can probably figure out what is wearing that groove.

maybe the guy you got it from put a recoil spring or firing pin spring in that is too long and its binding up in its channel not allowing you to pull it back all the way?? just a thought. otherwise i would just pull it back as far as you can and look in the chamber for obstructions(im sure you already have but thats all i got for ya)

Ditto on the groove, I have one too and I think it was done at the factory to grind off some casting. But, I'll keep an eye on it. Pushing the bolt back enough to catch the Safety, part #13, can be a bugger. I also had be bend the Safety so it would hold the bolt back enough to expose the Slide Retainer Pin, part #9. To push it back far enough I had to push from the front of the slide to get it back, after it was unloaded of course. When I finally got the Safety to work right and the Bolt to go back far enough, I locked the bolt open and left it that way for 2 weeks. It seems to make pushing the bolt back a little easier after that.
The Sear Assembly, part # 12, only fits one way, with the slope facing forward and the flat side back. So, after compressing the spring for a couple of weeks, it's easier to rack the slide back to load a round, but getting it back far enough for the safety to hold it open is still a chore. Please, let us know how you make out.

The greater danger for most of us is not that our
aim is too high and we miss it,
but that it is too low and we reach it.

I think you have the old style striker and spring. HP can confirm that, and they will send the new updated parts. Good trouble shooting.

I would ask for an ejector, spring, and pin setup too.
