What are you calling a Miss fire ? Bulk ammo ? did you check for primer compound by pulling a bullet ? Cheese a couple a miss fires and you want to jump into after market parts so soon. Oh well lets see what the folks say. How many rounds did you shoot and what ammo ?

What brand ammo are you using?
Misfires tend to be more of an ammo issue than a gun issue with the 10/22.

Any would do but are you sure the problem is the firing pin?

I will agree, its usually ammo related. But you may want to check these anyway:
Headspace should be: .042"
Firing pin protrusion: .035"

Misfires happen in my Savage and in my Browning, as well as in my 10/22. And all at the same rate. And all I have to do is change from Remington and the misfires drop way down in frequency--in any of my guns.

Like the guys said, it's almost certainly an ammo issue.

Ammo: Federal 525 round value pack, 36gr, high velocity, copper plated hollow point
problem: post 500+ rounds, one or two miss fires per 10.
question: dirty?

btw, I changed the shell extractor without having shell extraction problems.
(let's just say I want to make a fast car, faster)

try different ammo
check movement of firingpin. Clean bolt/firing pin assembly.

Re: making fast faster...some mods are worthwhile while others are more show than go. Fast is fine but inless you can actually use the add, why bother other than to say you have the go-fast part?

Don't know how to answer that, so I wont.

How about pulling a bullet and checking for primer compound, missing primer compound is a common problem with 22 ammo especially bulk ammo. Also compare the pin strikes,
a good pin hit and a miss fire should tell you something.
