Striker

Exist three main types of striker for TOZ-35 free pistol.
  • «A» – most of them were delivered with TOZ-35M;
  • «B» – transient type, delivered with both – TOZ-35 and TOZ-35M;
  • «C» – most of them were delivered with TOZ-35.
Most reliable of them for most ammo is «C». No problems at all. Shape is important. Impact force effectively used for safe ignition. Striker itself is very reliable and if you have misfires then change main spring.
You could try to change the shape of impact area using needle file but you must understand what are you doing. Don’t try to change the impact area depth – only shape. Inappropriate depth may damage striker and chamber.
