Just tried out my WWII vintage PP and out of 100 rounds I got 5 light primer hits. I retried fireing them and they did fire the 2nd time.

What would cause this? bad firing ping, firing pin spring, needs a good cleaning? If it need a pin or spring how does the old one come out?

Thnaks very much! :)

It might need a good cleaning.......
as to parts... I think the main spring and recoilspring might be interchangeable but I am not sure on the firingpin, and for that I would go to the P38forum and see if you can get a hold of Tom Heller (Hellerarms from missouri) he has alot of parts at fair prices and can give you some more advice
good luck and keep us updated :)
