That sucks!835 rounds fired, number 836 failed, first trigger press of the day and nothing happened. The firing pin is broken. I've been carrying an inert object as my CCW for the past week.. fun.

I agree the swipes are of concern. They show firing pin drag, which is not a good thing (regardless of why). It's an unnecessary force on the pin that it should not have to deal with. Even an "upgraded" firing pin would still be a Band-Aid for the bad timing.Great. Those primer swipes are my biggest issue with my P365 and whether or not I'll carry it...there's no immediate or remedial action to fix that when it happens
Dry firing being the problem doesn't make engineering sense. When you dry fire the firing pin hits nothing -- the large blunt face of the striker behind the firing pin projection just hits the inside breech face. A weak striker spring and/or dirt and/or grease in the striker channel preventing the firing pin from retracting fast enough to not be pushed sideways by the dropping cartridge in the barrel as the action cycles is more likely.Drag marks on the spent primers happens on all the sub compacts I own and there are 4 different manufactures so I figure this is normal. However I think a broken firing pin is more likely to happen because of dry firing without snapcaps. So did the original poster with the broken firing pin do a lot of dry fire without snapcaps?
