I'm having trouble with my KS-5 punching the primer deep enough to fire. It happens infrequently but it's a pain. Once. it was 5 out of 50; the next time it was 2 of 50. I brought it to a friend and he cleaned it and fired the shell I gave him, in his own gun, and it fired. He tried it with 5 shells and only four fired. The last one had a very small dimple in the primer. Has anyone any suggestions as to this problem?

After 75 thousand rounds I started getting an occasional light hit with new shells. I installed a new hammer spring and have had no more problems for the last ten thousand rounds. BL

If the primer is not set deep enough, this will also cause a failure. The first strike moves the primer forward using up the energy needed to fire the primer. Did you try to re-use the miss fired shell in your gun again?

Try some new shells if there is a problem with the new shells then it might be the gun if there is no problem with new shells it more than likely is a reloading problem.
