I tried to shoot my H&R turkey gun tonight but all for nothing. Got five shots in on the skeet field and it started to misfire again. I had changed the transfer bar with the hopes that was the problem but not to be. I know you must hold the trigger back or the transfer bar will fall before the hammer gets there. I did that. Still getting light hits, my next try will be to replace the hammer spring with one from wolf springs. If that does not work I will stuff it in a corner and forget it. This is the third H&R single shot I have had problems with and it will be the last.

Try checking the firing pin protrusion. Might have to take a bit off the hammer face or add a bit to the transfer bar.

I have had this problem with the Ruger transfer bar system.

firing pin protrusion should be about .04"

check the firing pin channel for dirt and grease

Bowen has said that Ruger revolvers often have firing pin protrusion issues.

0.040 firing pin protrusion strikes me as insufficient. Most firearms are in the 0.050-0.060" range.

I have not had a chance to check the pin yet maybe this afternoon. The lawn needs mowing but it's a bit cold out......

BTW, I noticed in the latest American Rifleman that Henry Repeating Arms is stepping up and making single shot rifles at a price comparable to H&Rs. Calibers are kinda limited, but boy, they look good. Nice to see, I've got grand kids that need first deer rifles.

They may also do shotguns, didn't check on that.
