    No, the spring and firing pin are fine, not broken. Could be bad primers I suppose. I bought 1000 primers with a buddy and we split them a while back. Fired this ML a couple of hundred times using the same primers and the first failures were this week. So possibly primers but seems rather unlikely.

    Have you found the issue?

    Reason I am asking is one of my buddies bought Remington 209 primers this Fall and 4 out of 10 don't fire even though there is an indent on the primer. Never had an issue with other primers.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    I have the exact same issue with my Optima. Went to discharge it last night, and it wouldn’t fire. Primers dented but wouldn’t pop. Tried 4 primers, no luck. I will be interested to hear what you find out.
