    I'd check hammer spring first. It might has a small crack. Cock hammers with your hand, feel the different between the two.

    If you springs are good, check the firing pin. The factory two part pin might start separating.

    Then, check the firing pin hole for debris.

    I would add to that for you to compare the hits on new shells as well as reloads you might be using. Seating and/or primer hardness might be an issue

    Many people think if the firing pin spring looks OK.. it is.. NOT... see that it come out easily..and that it's not swollen and grabbing the firing pin..

    Had same trouble. Found 2 piece firing pin had
    cracked. There is now one piece aftermarket available
    that have heard was good. If replace with two piece be
    sure it is Perazzi.

    I've had less issues with Marcello's firing pins..than factory ones.. Marcello crimps his 2 piece pins better than the factory pins.. To date.. I've yet to see one of Marcello's pins fail.. The one piece pins Bruce Bowen made are also excellent..

    Could possible be the firing pin hole is starting to elongate and is grabbing the firing pin.

    A friend of mine had trouble with his mx-8 when he managed to bend one of the cocking rods slightly inserting the trigger group. Outside the gun all felt well and hammer drop was strong, in the gun very very light strikes due to the rod dragging. Just a thought.

    Every answwer here is correct.. Can be a bunch of things.. A simple tear down will eliminate 90% of them..

    Marcello now makes a two piece firing pin - the pieces are not actually permanently joined. The piece that hits the primer is hardened – the other piece is not hardened (at least not to the same extent)

    I’ve found these to be excellent.

    Cheers
