failure to fire



Log in to see fewer ads
Greetings, I have an Italian model that has quit hitting the primer hard enough to make it fire. It used to be intermittent but has now become constant. There is the slightest indentation on the rim of the case. I have disassembled and cleaned everything and found no broken springs. I am going to have to send it off for repair as there are no competent gunsmiths in my area. Any suggestions as to who may be the best to repair it? Thanks in advance.
Kevin

Cant help with gunsmith but if you have the original parts still in rifle I would buy and install a new firing pin spring and maybe a new firing pin as well. I have not had mine apart enough times to remember the parts but there is also a hammer spring. Also try different brands of ammo to find one that will fire? Lots of parts available here:

Thanks for the link! I haven't needed any parts yet for my old Italian-made Mark XXII, but it is nice to have a source for parts just in case.

I do not have an Italian model, I do have a Japanese model from the mid to late ‘70s that suffers from the same issue if it gets dirty. Which seems to happen rather quickly. I just pull the trigger group and hose it out w/brake cleaner (non-ammonia type), reoil it and I'm good to go!
