Hope someone out there can help or point me in the right direction. Been shooting a Stoeger SXS for about a year now and as of the last two matches I'm having trouble with the back trigger firing pin not striking the primer hard enough. Shells are factory no reloads. I usually pull the front trigger first and then the second. At the last match I tried pulling the back trigger first and then the front and had no problems, but it is awkward for me to shoot that way. I did take the firing pin out and tried smoothing burs, etc, but was no help. I like the shotgun otherwise and hate to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

Thanking you kindly in advance.

You might check the transfer bar also. I just replaced mine and the problem went bye bye.
