    Lately I have noticed my shells having firing pin drag marks when I eject them. Wondering if my firing pin spring is broken & if it is a big deal to try and change it out my self. Anyone have any experience doing this?

    That sounds like the problem. Dry fire it without the barrels and see if the pin stays out past the breech face. Changing firing pins and springs isn`t too big of a deal "IF" you know what`s going on. Almost a total receiver gut. I`ve done a bunch of them.m It might be best to send it to someone that does this work. Larry
