Odds are that you were "milking" the trigger, causing the rifle to double. The trigger needs to be pulled firmly to the rear, all the way.

However, you need to perform a function check...

Clear the rifle. Pull the trigger all the way to the rear and hold it. The hammer should fall.

While still holding the trigger to the rear, cycle the action with your other hand. When you release the trigger, you should hear a click as the hammer transitions from the rear hooks to the front. If the hammer falls, you have a dangerous mechanical issue.
