I think i remember reading about that and finding that when i looked up the serial number it was part of the last batch after that was fixed but i honestly could be making that up. All i know regarding if its free floating is that when the slide is removed and the hammer is back and i push on the firing pin from where the hammer would strike it has a full range of movement and penetrates out the little hole where it would stike. Shouldnt it lock up or something? Sorry if im lacking in certain terminology or part names.

Does it freely move or is it driven back by a spring?
If you shake it does the firing pin protrude?

The change was to an INERTIAL firing pin. This means that the firing pin does not protrude from the breech face when it is flush with the rear of the slide.
Your gun is likely just dirty and in need of lubrication. It doesn't have a striker or striker spring. The gun is hammer fired and uses a firing pin.

Most of the little 6.35 caliber auto pistols had problems with FTF. They are very sensitive to different ammo. The firing chamber must be very clean and clear of carbon.
