    I have a perazzi trigger that I shoot on my MX8 with the serial number of 641:

    That I have had some problems with. Every 50th(or so) shell(even factorys) is what appears to be a light hit. I am looking at a perazzi trigger kit which comes with top and bottom firing pins/springs, top and bottom leaf hammer springs with Perazzi markings, installation tool, rib adjusting tool and red fitted case.

    Is everything I need to fix my trigger in here? Is it worth it for 100 bucks?

    thanks

    I believe Perazzi firing pins are two piece affairs of both a hard and soft metal. Pop out your pins and see if one has separated the top half from the bottom.

    Yep. Think of the firing pins as a pin in a tube with a crimp. Sometimes the crimp comes loose and allows the pin part to float around in the tube. Looks OK, but it needs to be replaced.

    All the above is good advice. But also - look down into the receiver with the barrel off and slide the cocking rod (the silver thing) back and forth with your finger. It should spring back without any odd glitches at all. If there's a little grainy feel, check the spring behind it. It may be broken or collapsed and that will lead to the problem you describe.

    wow thanks for the replies guys! and since I won't be needing that kit, it is on ebay (just search perazzi) with 16 hours of bidding left.

    Firing pins that are not broken get worn down a bit on the back where the hammer hits them after lots of use. They actually get too short, then they start giving you light hits the odd time like you are seeing. I have never broke a pin and I dry fire the gun a lot with a snap cap. I have thrown out a few firing pins that were too short, each time you would get about 1 or 2 light primer hits where the gun did not go off in a round of 100. Giacamo changed a couple for me, he said they were worn and too short. Each time the pin was changed the problem went away. Terry.
