Firing pin problem with Beretta AL 390 ??

Was out last night for geese and when I went to shoot my first shot of the evening the round never went off. I felt the seer break and hear the click of the pin hitting the primer, and there was even a small pin indentation in the primer, although it was faint. I cycled the action myself and the next round fired. I had the same thing happen earlier in the fall. Both times the temps were below freezing, however there were other times with the temps below freezing that I didn't have a misfire. both misfires were on the very first round chambered. Any ideas of what the problem or suggestions to fix??

My buddy had the same issue with his stoger. Turns out there was a piece missing and stoger corrected the issue. Have you called the manufacture.

Not yet. this is a firearm I've had for 12 years and until this year it's worked flawlessly. I'm think ing it could be the FP spring but again.. not sure.

clean it? or too much oil in the pin - gummed up in the cold

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Might want to look into using a synthetic oil if you're not using one already. They withstand much colder temps without gumming up.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I did give it a complete breakdown and lube prior to the season. I did use a light coat of gun oil but perhaps I should degrease it and use a synthetic. I'm just curious as this has been done the same way for 12 years, the gun has been used in similar conditions and only now is it presenting a problem.

Could just be a small piece of dirt in there casusing your issue
never hurts to give it a real good cleaning before anything else.
390's are almost bullet proof (no pun intended)
I would think it has to be something simple
