I just disassembled my 1894SS for a thorough cleaning. After reassembly, I noticed the rear of the firing pin (or the part struck by the hammer) can be pushed forward by hand to be flush with the carrier making a hammer strike questionable. Is this normal? Function checks, cocking, trigger, crossbar safety all seem fine.

Welcome from Alabama... Yes it's normal... The firing pin is meant to move easily in the firing pin track... Crossbolt safety only stops the hammer from hitting the firing pin...

1894SS? Got a picture of the old gal? What year? Hunting or target shooting successes?
