Alan, am putting the pieces into an envelope, and will mail it to you tomorrow morning. I have two of the three pieces, should be more than enough for them to analyze.

Before I forget, doesn't this firing pin need to be replaced?

For you, and 'moonjohn', and the other experienced High Standard users here, that might be true.

For me, I disagree - the dummy rounds...

Alan, you are almost certainly correct about something you wrote earlier - that the broken firing pin spring might have caused the misfeeds.

Amazing - I finished my brunch, then took the gun, now...

Alan, the gun is all together right now so I can take it to the range with me and test it with the old barrel, and the two latest magazines you sent me (numbered 2-1 and 2-2). When I get back from...

'moonjohn', I hate to think that you are right, and that is exactly what is going on. My barrel fits my definition of a "third party" barrel. I need to have a long talk with Alan. Also, the...

'moonjohn', I totally agree, which is why I have so many parts lying around my home in boxes. In 2015 I bought a Hi Standard 203 Sharpshooter, called Alan, and had him send me two sets of everything...

So my magazines are probably fine, it's my barrel that is defective, and ditto for the firing pin spring. Is the firing pin itself supposed to look like it does in my photo? I would have expected...

Gun disassembled, slide removed, roll pin removed, and firing pin removed along with what was left of the spring.

Apparently I need a new barrel without the ramp/gouge, and a new firing pin...

Alan, I think you nailed it. It is SO improbable that it is all the magazines. Until today, I was lost. Now there are two potential problems.

I think I fixed the problem by replacing the...

I think the original problem was not the magazines. I think the barrel is defective, that the machinist who built it made far too much of a cut leading into the chamber at the bottom. Then, round...

Next issue - with the slide off the gun, it was obvious what the firing pin is doing - it just slides back and forth, depending on how I hold the gun. If there's supposed to be a spring in there, I...
