Colt Vest Pocket .25 question

I have a Colt Vest Pocket .25 that is in good shape purchased from a recent gun show. We tried firing it the other day and it took about 4-5 hits from the firing pin to get a round to go off. The primer would show an indentation but it would not fire with out repeated hits from the firing pin. I am thinking that a new firing pin would be in order???

Now the next issue. When it did fire about half of the cases stovepiped. So I figure a new recoil spring is also in order???

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also any source for new springs would be great.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!!!!

Did you clean it first?

With guns that old gummy old oil can slow things down enough to cause all the symptoms you desribe.
