Failure to Fire
Recently at the range I was firing a 14" T/C in 45/70. Five or six rounds out of 50 did not fire the 1st time I let the hammer drop.
After counting to 30, I opened the pistol looked at the problematic rounds (each time, a light depression on the primer), then loaded the same shell & refired with no problem.
This used to happen with a 7MMTCU barrel on this same frame, but never with the 45/70. These were reloads (2nd mild loading).
I had a 'Smith' work on the action years ago. . . it is a VERY light trigger.
What should I look at to solve this?
