Can anyone recommend a gunsmith to work on H&S Pro series action? I bought this rifle back 2000 from H&S. I have cleaned the firing pin spring and bolt. I also tried to adjust the trigger. From my understanding H&S makes all the components on there rifles? I think I might need a heavier spring?

I had this very same issue with my (2004) Pro Series HTR last winter.

No gunsmith needed. Simply called HSP, talked to one of their techs who gave me a return authorization to fix the problem under warranty. Turns out my firing pin spring was weak, so they replaced the pin and spring, free of charge.

Good to go! Fast turnaround and great customer service.

Good deal. What was the $35 for? Shipping?

Did they also request you to send in the whole rifle? I declined because I didn't want to mess around with shipping mine. I believe they also upgraded something in the safety mechanism and cautioned me to make sure once I got the bolt back, to make sure that the firing pin did't drop when the safety was pushed forward into firing position. It was safe and everything worked fine. Haven't had a light strike since.

Glad you're up and running again.

Next time I head out to Deadwood, I'm bringing my HTR along to drop off in Rapid City for a week and they can do a checkup on it then!

Nice looking rifle, Terry!

Wish mine had the longer barrel.
