As posted about, the firing pin stop should fit tight, but should not require Herculean effort or power tools to remove. I like a very slight press fit, just enough to prevent the extractor from rotating in its bore (known as "clocking"). But I've seen 1911 in which the stop was so loose that, if inserted with no firing pin, would just fall out ... and the pistols functioned.

A Taurus will also have a Series 80 style firing pin safety, and if that's not properly set up the safety can interfere with the firing pin, resulting in light strikes.
