firing pins not retracting
I have never had problems with firing pins not retracting in hammerless guns. I have had this problem with hammer guns and now I just hold the gun with the barrels up when closing and they retract fine.
Here is this picture (this is a split extractor from an ejector gun) you will see a half moon cut-out in the extractor, this is for pushing the firing pin/s back in when closing the gun.
Also make sure your firing pin holes are clean. use a Q tip with some Hoppes on it.
