May I ask what makes you think that doing such a thing would eliminate failures to fire?

If you're experiencing such issues it would be helpful to know what if any "upgrades" you may have performed on your LCP II .22, how many rounds you've put through it, what ammo you've been using, etc.

Why not an extra power hammer spring instead?

My LCP 2 was doing pretty well with an occasional fail to fire. The firing pin looked like it was not protruding enough. All the strikes looked a little light. I field stripped it today and inspected the bolt and firing pin channel with a magnifying glass. I did not remove the firing pin. There is an area where gunk could get in. I sprayed it out with Hornady One Shot. Looks like the pin protrudes a little more now. May have been from mfg since the strikes look light from the start.. Need to get to the range.

I took my LCP2 to the range today. Definitely getting better firing pin strikes. I ran 20 rounds of 40 grn Minimag and 80 rounds of Fed Auto Match with no issues.

I was getting light strikes on my LCP II 22LR. I discovered that the firing pin was installed upside down from the factory. The firing pin was damaged from being used upside down for hundreds of rounds. Ruger sent me a new one, which I installed. I also replaced the hammer spring with a stronger one from Galloway Precision. At the same time I installed a stronger extractor spring from them too. I did not use the lighter firing pin spring; I did not want any additional risk of the gun possibly firing if dropped.

Since doing those three things, I’ve fired another 500 or 600 more rounds with excellent performance. Now this is the ultra compact 22 that I wanted.
