Resurrecting an old thread......(And my first post!)
I also have a Stevens Favorite mod 1894 in 32 long rf.
Light primer strikes, I think the firing pin is simply worn down at the hammer end. There is no spring with mine, assuming it just free floats or am I missing the spring?
Not sure how to post a pic yet, but firing pin measures about
.994 at it's longest. The hammer end is beveled to match the profile of the breech block and looks very well worn. I see Wisners has them available for $13.00 plus shipping. Can anyone confirm the length of the firing pin and that it does not use a spring of any kind? Will a new firing pin require any fitting?
