there are all kinds of reason. If you can spare the time to go over some of the threads where people are having similar problems, you'll find a lot of things to check on.

It can be anything from junk/gunk prematurely stopping your firing pin to a chipped firing pin to anything in between.

Often a really good cleaning works, then have a look with a magnifying glass at the firing pin's tip and also examine the dent in the primer for anything odd.

Marlin lever actions are usually not finicky about being a little dirty, so there likely is something broken. (sorry)

Good luck,
