I just replaced an old 1893 firing pin/spring/etc yesterday and I noticed the replacement pin was hanging up in the bolt. I found the trouble was with the relief cut towards the front of the pin that provides clearance for the front retaining pin. I took a little more material with a small file and it allowed enough clearance for the firing pin to move freely now. Not sure if it could be the same thing on yours, but it's something to check. I would try it without the front retaining pin temporarily and see if it works.
