I would say it could be one or More of Four thing's going on with your gun to cause it to Miss fire. A Loosened strain screw
, on the lower front strap the large flat headed screw has to be very tight
for the hammer to drop quickly, A weak main spring
, what the strain screw set's up against, or a wore hammer nose bushing
which is in the main frame area directly in front of the hammer nose If this Hammer nose bushing is wore much it will appear Egg shaped in Nature
, or Possible excessive End shake to the gun's cylinder.
If you open the cylinder and try to rock it back and forth and there is a good amount of Movement, that is excessive cylinder end shake.
This problem can be remidied by Inserting some Cylinder end shake shims
. They are sold by Brownell's and come in an assortment pack to cure the Cylinder end shake issues. I hope this helps, Hammerdown
