Just took mine out. Was experiencing light strikes/misfires. Cleaned everything real well and about 3-4 out of 10 rounds would not fire. Checked spring orientation, ran dry, ran wet no difference. Pulled the TK out and back to stocker and ran the next 50 rounds without a problem. Guess I shouldn't mess with whats not broken...well thats not happening

The real old 15-22's had a Ti pin but they contacted the cartridge and were still being driven by the hammer so they worked because no weight was needed.

All the 15-22's since the early ones have an inertia type firing pin where the pin leaves the face of the hammer and has to overcome the firing pin spring to travel forward enough to contact the cartridge, you need weight to overcome the spring. I have tested the impact of both Ti and SS pins in the 15-22 and hands down the steel pins have a better impact. A Ti pin in a 15-22 is just a plain bad idea. The reliability suffers too much with a Ti pin.

Guess I need to try one but aside from breaking at inconvenient times (I take a backup rifle or at least a spare bolt assy to matches) the stock set up runs fine, at least with Giessele extra strength hammer spring.

I run Ti firing pins in my Ruger 22/45's (the pistol half of my Rimfire Challenge guns) with no firing springs or supports. Seemed like every time I took the bolts apart the spring was wadded up and/or its' support was broken. Only time it was a problem was if the firing pin was jammed forward. No, the pistol didn't go full auto, it just jammed. The rds couldn't slide up into the rim recess. Three or four yrs ago I started leaving out the firing pin and its' support and have had no problems. Several of the guys I shoot with locally have done the same.

I'd try the 15-22 with a Ti pin and no spring. Real AR-15s have inertial pins with no spring. They do have a slam fire issue when single loading (CMP and rds loaded too long to fit in the mags) but a Ti firing pin has been the traditional fix. I'd try it for a while with only two rds in the mags...

I replaced my broken stick pun with a TK this week. At the range today, of 150 res, had 100 strikes but no fire. I'll try the no pin spring trick tomorrow and hope that works.

I went with the tool steel Volquartsen firing pin and made my previously unreliable POF trigger reliable. 100% so far with good ammo.

Excuse my ignorance here, but what advantages are there with this type of firing pin?

One difference is that it is wider than the factory firing pin and covers more of the rim surface of the shell casing. I saw a picture of the difference but now I can't locate it!!

I use the volquartzen firing pin , being stainless steel and redesigned tip , titanium just seems to light, I want a hard of a hit as possible, that's why I also use a hyper fire competition trigger with the springs on top for more forward pressure be it 15-22 or AR 15
