A friend of mine recently bought a used Savage Mk II off gunbroker for a steal; he'd been wanting one for a while. Well, he took it up to the range the other day and found out why it was so cheap; the firing pin strikes are light and about 1-4 rounds fails to go off. The problem occurs with several different brands of ammo (including Eley and SK Standard Plus, so it's not cheap ammo that'; the problem here) and all of those brands fire just fine out of my Mk II. Savage won't cover repairs because he isn't the original owner. Any ideas on what might be the cause?
