    My dad gave me my grandfathers 25a.
    I dont remember my dad ever shooting it, it just hung on the wall.
    I tried 4 different brands of 22 and see the mark where the firing pin hit the rim, but none of the rounds fired.
    I am guessing the pin is worn just enough that it isnt striking hard enough.
    I cant find a replacement anywhere.
    I would really like to get this shooting again so I can give it back to my dad as a working rifle.
    Does anyone know where to find parts like this? Noone has them online that I have found.
    Or would it be easier to take it to a gunsmith to see if they can add a little metal to the pin?
    Thanks for any help or advice.
