this weekend while plinking with a .22 semi-auto handgun i began experiencing a lot of failure to fires. the first 30 or so rounds were fired without incidence. then one magazine had 1 failure to fire and things steadily progressed until 7 out of 10 were failures. the gun has never had issues except for the occasional stovepipe. it is cleaned regularly and i'm very careful not to dry fire it. the ammo was the bulk remington stuff. upon case inspection i could see the firing pin was striking too far out on the case to cause ignition. since the gun has cycled this ammo reliably before and even started the day firing it just fine i'm not about to blame the ammo. it seems to be a gun issue and i wonder if there is a way to adjust the firing pin or would it need to be replaced entirely? i appreciate any insight on the matter.
