    Tried it tonight, rattled of a box of ammo no mis firing problem. I just taped up the mag spring for now as I don't have a spare or a Remington on hand to try. Feeding wasn't perfect as to be expected.

    Will try take the bolt apart and see what the firing pin looks like as the primer strikes did seem a little light

    It may be the photo but that bottom case looks like the primer is a lot flatter than the others?

    Check firing pin protrusion on a decocked bolt vs your other one, possibly could be a travel issue rather than a spring issue.

    Na must be the photo they aren't flattened at all.

    Will try compare firing pins tomorrow if I get time. Will slap a scope on it as well for the next range session

    I have seen worse pin-strikes from rifles that still fired ok. Worth taking apart though.

    Could you tig the mag spring together? Is it a clean break?
