New guy here,Thanks for having me here.I recently bought a springer kit.I fitted the trigger bar correctly I believe.It fires and resets.Here's the problem.Some primers are not going off ,maybe every eighth to tenth one dosent fire.You can see the primer was hit but very lightly.I took one round and rechambered it three times and there was three light marks.Don't know if it's an illusion but it looks like the striker pin isn't out as far as when it was stock.Thanks in advance guys.

If you didn't change out the striker spring, you need to remove a bit more of the overtravel. The striker safety is still blocking the striker.
It is an illusion, the kit does not change the way the striker is cocked.

If you replaced the original striker spring with a springer striker spring I suggest you put the original back in. If you didn't replace the striker spring I would suggest you remove just a bit more off of the overtravel.
