Default ftf on mauser 24 47 & firing pin to long

I have purchased a m24 47 mauser at big 5 everything shoots great with the exception of a bunch of yugo 50s that I picked up. I replaced the spring with a stock part same prob. while searching the web for answers I also read a thread that said the firing pin may be to short and that the specs were .055 to.065 so I decided to check and mine measured around .70. The ? is 1st what should I do about the pin if anything? and would a wolf k98 high power replacement spring fit a 24 47? Also I have checked many fired rounds and they show no signs of primer piercing.

Have you tried different ammo since the Yugo 50s? Could be the ammo and not your rifle

I have some 1950's yugo that is about a 50% fire rate. It sucks when you pull the trigger and hear "click". Kinda gets the pucker factor going.

I have. Ive shot Romanian that always go's boom and any new manufacture works great. Now the 50 s yugo always go's boom the second time thats why I was thinking soft primer strike as I hear they have stiff primer.I was just wondering if the k98 spring would fit a m24 47 & if I should carefully file the pin down to spec or just leave the pin alone since there is no sign of primer piercing?

Leave the pin alone:P I don't mean to sound offense, but are you sure you measured it correctly?
Also, EVERYONE experiences failures with 50's yugo, hang fire's are the scarriest, as I decided 10 seconds was long enough... Once. I had my hand heading for the bolt and got my first case(and only case, knock knock) of scope bite.

A K98 spring is longer then a 24/47/M48 spring. Wolff sells a heavier spring for the 24/47. Leave the pin alone. Wolff Gunsprings - Firearm Springs for Semi-Auto Pistols, Revolvers, Rifles, & Shotguns

Yeah I measured properly I have a gauge from midway USA just for firing pins. Also I check that wolf link and could only find springs for a m48 Mauser wich is what I used for a factory replacement and it has a width wich is tight inside the bolt making it hard to open.
