New BL-22 Firing pin issue



Log in to see fewer ads
Out of the box, I shot about 500 rounds with zero failure to fire issues. I installed the spring kit to reduce the trigger pull and started getting a lot of FTF's. I put the factory hammer spring back in which helped but I'm still getting about 5% FTF. I even tried multiple brands of ammo to confirm that wasn't the issue. The firing pin is only striking the outer edge of the shells which is evident by the brass and only the bottom corner of the firing pin is shiny. I have dissembled and cleaned / oiled everything but continue to have the issue. The shape of the striking edge of the firing pin appears to be fine. Any ideas?

Well.... I'd guess the 'spring kit' is causing light strikes. Swap back to the old spring and test?

Do you have any spent brass before you even installed the kit to compare with?

Unfortunately I don't have any spent brass from before the kit. I was hoping someone with a stock gun could compare the photo to some of their brass.

BTW, the strike appears to be good, it's just the location of it that's questionable.

Just wondering if the firing pin it's self is bad ? Looks like the bottom of the pin is not squared off maybe.

It's squared off but only the bottom point of the firing pin is shiny after firing. I noticed when I had the bolt out that when I pushed on the firing pin from the hammer end, sometimes the front of the firing pin would lift up. That would definitely cause it to hit on just the bottom, but shouldn't the top of the frame prevent it from lifting up when installed? In the top of the frame there's a slot cut out in about the middle and thread-like groves near the mouth of the barrel just like pics of others that I've seen, like this one.

Sent you a pm. Sounds like something may be under the firing pin and lifting it slightly? Knock out the drift pin, remove the firing pin and take a look-see.
