M&P 9C Light strikes
I bought a used 9c and have had trouble with light strikes since i got it. I sent it to Smith and they replaced the recoil spring. Didnt fix the issue. I went ahead and got an apex fss and trigger installed and had my gunsmith look for issues while installing. Couldn't find any. I went to another gunsmith and he put in a new striker assembly. 10th round went light. It appears that the strike may be a little off center but hard to tell. The gun doesnt go into battery well. It does fine when i release it hard but it wont go when ridden. I know you arent supposed to do that but i own other pistols and none have that issues. It doesnt happen consistenly but enough to be frustrating. Any opinions on what the strike issue is? Could it be trigger bar loop? Could it be it not totally going into battery? Just not sure where to look next. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

If it's not returning fully into battery; it better not be capable of firing at all.

Any idea how many rounds have been fired from this used gun you bought...??? Pull the barrel, drop a live round in the chamber, where does the cartridge sit. If its to deep, the stryker cant hit the round as good. I would also look to see if the extractor is gummed up, or stuck, could be causing it not to go into full battery. What ammo are you feeding it (???)
