Re: 1884 Carbine

The firing pin is purposely loose to avoid slam fires.

With the block open press the pin back with your finger on the surface that would be against the cartridge. Does the rear end of the pin now protrude from the rear of the block, where the hammer would strike?

If so, you have NO problem.

The pin is (usually) easily removed by removing the two screws visible on the block (side comes off first). We'll work with you until the issue is resolved, one way or the other.
