Guys I have this really nice model 10-5 Smith and it has this issue with "Clickers" ( light strikes ), I removed a primer hammer loaded it into a shell and dry fired it and found that the strike was not concentric. Initially I just thought it was out of time but after checking the timing using the drag on the cylinder technique all cylinders time perfectly, the issue is that the strikes are low. A digital photo showed that it was low and not left or right of centre.
My question is this, the firing pin is on the hammer and I am wondering if its possible the spring behind it is too strong and is forcing it lower on the primer than it should be ? any advice would be appreciated immensely.
