Here's a crummy quality photograph looking down at the inner frame, magazine top is in the direction of the line arrow, and faces the solid arrow:
Another view, from the bottom with the thing dangling:
Problem is, that pin is free to rotate upwards, and when the gun is fired, it doesn't project down with enough force on the magazine to release the gas. This mainly tends to be a problem when the slide is racked (bringing the assembly back towards the hammer) and a fresh mag is put in.
Wondering if anyone with the expertise and means to can shoot me either an explanation or some photos of how this assembly should look when working. If I were to solder the piece facing down I'd imagine it might work, but I'd rather not melt/damage anything if I can just get it running correctly. Also, is the spring next to the impact hammer supposed to create tension to keep the I-hammer facing down? It doesn't have any visible function to me.
Please note that I cannot apply for an RMA. I'm over the 45 day warranty limit and there's no way for me to obtain a receipt.
EDIT: I see someone had a similar problem as me a few topics down. My mistake. Although I will say that I believe the firing pin is in the correct spot. The gun WILL fire if I manually field strip the gun and physically move the impact hammer down with my finger. Obviously a bit of a pain though. If anymore pics are needed I'll get on it.
