Yes, two things. First, that case strike that is shown in the picture is one I just did before taking the picture. Late last night I thought since it took two, sometimes 3 times cocking and firing, I took a better look. My suspicions are much better that it is indeed the firing pin. The previous strikes were very flat and blunt. So I took it apart again and looked at the pin. It was fairly blunt. So, since I had nothing to lose, I put it in my drill backwards, and used a fine hobby file to round out the squared end thinking that a radiussed end would 'penetrate' better into the case. From what I seen in this case, the mark left was definately more pronounced than the ones from before. I however live in a small town, and cannot readily fire this off. Hopefully this weekend I will be out of town for a ride and this will accompany me for at least a shot if I do go. So, fingers now crossed. And if indeed it does work, I will be very happy.

Secondly. Jason.... Where to start with you? Well, that is some nice work you did there making that firing pin. Following that, the little derringer. That little thing is indeed a thing of beauty. I had always wanted one, but unfortunately, up here, I could now never have the opportunity, as it is a prohibitive weapon. I like that you still have it and shoot it as it was your grandfathers. And to think he paid only $0.50 for it. Wow! Thanks for sharing your talents and nice little weapon.

If you look close at mine the front sight was filed down and the back of the hammer was filed down some. Probably so it didn't catch in a pocket. The other side has some damage where the pin that holds the firing pin in. Also the break action lock my dad made with a file from a piece of brass. It's not worth much.

I also have a J Stevens little scout 14 1/2. It's a nice little garden gun. Drop block .22LR. I had to put a new firing pin in that one too.

I’m with Bob, that impression looks plenty cabable of igniting the primer. What type of ammuntion are you using?

I have a Savage Model 24 with a weak hammer spring and I sometimes have to take 2-3 wacks at it before the round fires. Something to think about.

This case is an Aigula subsonic. It was previously fired. The case strike is with the modified pin strike, and indeed it does appear good to me, or at least enough to set the shell off. Now only time will tell. Thanks for the positive thinking!☺️

But for normal operation target shooting, I have some CCI Blazer, Mini Mags, CCI standard velocity, and Winchester M22 to try out.
