Have light firing pin hits got new pin spring and striker
shoots about 20 or so then light hit once in a while. If
you pull the trigger fast it fires every time but a slow
pull it usallaly misfires. Any suggestions 22lr

Trigger / sear engagement? My immediate guess is that the slow engagement is causing something to get hung up, hence the light strikes.

Several days late, but not being
familiar with the specific gun in
question I would have made the same
suggestion as KinleyWater. Just would
point out in addition that it is probably
a surface that has worn to a rounded
corners where it is supposed to be a sharp
corner which hard to fix without
replacement parts. Which depending on the
gun case sometimes be hard to get for some
old guns but I have had decent luck in the
past using a 1/16" diameter 7014 rod on a
DC buzz box turned way down to 30-to-40
amps depending on metal thickness. Pre
heat the part with a torch and then very
carefully give a short nice good blind
tack weld right where you need to add
material and then use a Dremel to reshape
back to a crisp corner. Then reheat with
torch and oil quench to reharden. It's a
pain in the @#&$+)* to have to do all that
but sometimes necessary when you can't get
replacement parts anymore.

I am not sure this is your problem, but the trigger is fairly crude so adjustment by removing or polishing metal is critical. The adjustment for striker force of the cocking knob is also critical.

As a boy in likely the early 60's, I was given an old Model 15 by my uncle, who got it from his uncle. I fired thousands of rounds through that little rifle. I also went through two firing pins because of too much impact force before I realized that the cocking knob was adjustable.

Back then, parts were hard to find and I had to have the firing pins made each time by a gunsmith, who eventually showed me the problem. After adjusting the cocking knob travel until it failed to fire and slowly increasing it's travel I got it right. Never busted another pin after that.

to use a small lock washer to hold it in the reproduction
springs are not as strong as original I have a 15 and a
15a that's just my opion
