Default 12 gauge Springfield model 57 series sometimes shells don't fire for a couple times.

So I have a used 12 gauge. Model 67

Some shells don't like to fire and then the next shell works.
Take the bad shell and put it back in. Doesn't work
Try again. It fires.

All my shells are older. I got them on trade and some with the gun when I bought it.

Any idea if its old shells or if its the fireing pin?

I'm going to get wild and crazy and tell you to put some new shells through it to find your answer....

1. Try different shells.
2. Detail strip and clean, then clean again, paying particular attention to the bolt firing pin cavity, firing pin, firing pin spring. Many gun lubes turn to varnish with the passage of time, and unlubed metal gets rusty with time, either way, a good cleaning is a good idea

Had this happen to a mossburg of mine it wound up being crappy gun oil was used and causing the firing pin to hang. to a good cleaning and stripping make sure to soak the firing pin assembly in some nitro solvent or whatever solvent you use to clean with.

5 slugs just went through fine. I'm sure it does need a better cleaning. I cleaned and shot it 2 times sence I traded for it. I'll get some better oil. Never taken one apart but the future inlaws have countless times I'm sure they know how.
Thanks guys.
