I shot my Charter Arms 3" undercover yesterday. After firing about 15 rounds or so I had two FTF due to light firing pin strikes. One out of 5 the last to two times I loaded it up. The pistol is all but unfired, in great shape and looks almost new. I was using Winchester white box. Any one ever experienced this problem? Thanks for any insight you all can offer.

    Are you sure it was light firing pin strikes, the dent in the dud's is faint. Ammo that has soak up WD-40 will not fire. Try some other ammo (new and fresher). Perhaps there is some dried grease in the weapon. Take it apart, clean and relube everything. Maybe a new hammer spring is needed. Very hard to tell from here.
