    Guys,

    I have a Remington (Baikal) 220H Coachgun. The left hammer strikes too lightly for fire. My gunsmith took it apart and he told me that it was missing parts! :confused: He says that whoever disassembled it before did not properly reassemble it. He reassembled it and installed the missing parts but it still has a consistent light strike. Has anyone else had these problems?

    Can you see how far the firing pin sticks out compared to the other?

    They appear to have equal protrusion. We did the "penny test." We placed a penny on top of each pin and when I pulled the trigger the penny flew about four feet into the air. It seemed to fly as high on both sides and each penny seemed to have similar dents. I do not understand why the right side fires and the left side will not.

    Hmmm, Could the left barrel be improperly bored to the point that the shell rim sits lower and adversely impacts headspace?

    This is exactly what we are looking into. It does seem to slightly off but the naked eye is unreliable.
