This is my first post so I'll make it simple and sweet. I have an M40-A1 I took it on a partial trade (at a value of $200 which is why I said yes in the first place), anyway, while looking it over I did the pencil test, wooden pencil, eraser down the barrel to test the firing pin. The pencil moved, but barely. Again, I took it on a trade value of only $200 with a shoulder holster and 350 rounds, I figured even if there was a problem it was worth it. I haven't tried to shoot it yet, but I doubt it'd strike the primer hard enough anyway. I took the pistol down and removed the firing pin and spring and everything looked okay...not that I have seen an M40-A1 firing pin/spring before. It does have some play when in the striker channel, you can move it up and down a good half cm. Also, not sure if this is related, but sometimes when I pull the trigger and rack the slide to pull the trigger again, the trigger fails to reset, it seems as though I must rack it hard for the trigger to reset reliably ( no mag, empty chamber). Any insight? I appreciate it!
