Default Springfield 87a issue

First let me start by saying hi new here! But on to my issue. I have a springfield 87a and every once and a while it likes to slam fire so to say. It will shoot two rounds and the trigger will stick. Any thoughts? Thanks Red

Swing by the state and intro sections. And id say your gun needs to be totally tore down and cleaned hard core. At least start there.

Gun is clean. That was one of my first thoughts too. I did a search on the forum and found one post of a person with the same problem. Someone posted that the pin that holds the bolt may be worn but there isnt a pin that holds the bolt, so what pin would it be? Thanks again!! Red

Your buffer springs or your firing pin springs probably need replaced then bc they are gettin worn out
