Did they change the firing pin springs? ... I had an older Daly/Miroku and it used leaf springs instead of coil springs. The leaf springs tend to break and when I broke one there weren't any parts available... my gunsmith had to make one. That was ok, but more expense and I waited a long long time.A Miroku, or a Charles Daly mfg by Miroku, are outstanding guns for the money. Every bit the equal of a Superposed, or a Winchester 101 for a whale of a lot less $$$$.
