Thanks to Glen "HisSoldier" and his business, Tillamook Precision Inc. I have a new firing pin for the Bayard. I fired the pistol today and although I don't think it has been fired in over 70 yrs. it was almost perfect. Only 3 fail to fire out of 25 rounds and each of them fired on the second try. I think the spring on the slide may be at fault but I won't complain on a gun that was made in 1908. This isn't a long distance pistol by any means but at 5yds. today it was right on the money.
We live in the greatest country on Earth- always be thankful!
