    I have a stoeger 2500 that the Ol lady shoots and the firing pin is hitting the primer light and not igniting... Can I tighten the spring or just replace it and do I just drop the trigger assembly out or take stock off or what?

    Thanks for any help

    Not familiar with that model.Side by side? Over under? Auto? How old is it? I would start with a GOOD cleaning first. I`m talking takeing it apart. Don`t go further than what your comfortable with. I use spray brake cleaner. NOT on wood or plastic!!! Make sure its dry then spray it good with WD-40. Wipe away the excess and reasemble it and try it. Its also a good time to replace that spring and there not expensive. Let us know. Tom

    It's a cheap semi auto had it for roughly 7 years and I take care of it and clean it regularly.... I was just comparing the hulls from it abd my beretta and there's a significant difference in primer strikes... I was thinkin tighten spring or new spring.
