Hi Steve - The pins need to be well-seated for sure. Make sure everything is clean and free of burrs. If your pins did not survive the extraction process intact, then you may get play in the mechanism. This is not good because it will greatly accelerate wear, and of course, the dang thing will not fire reliably. If you are worried about your pins, please drop a PM. I purchased a bunch of pins a while back and I could probably dig them up with enough time and encouragement.
