As the title alludes, I’m getting a light primer strike (1 in 15 shots).  When it happens the slide is in battery and just a click. The round shows little to no contact with the firing pin on a light strike, but others appear normal.  Any thoughts or ideas?

I had a High Standard that unbeknown to me had a broken firing pin. I took it to a local smith and fellow bullseye shooter and when I picked it up he asked how long I had it. I'd had it for a while and he told me what the problem was that he fixed. No telling when it broke but I began to have failures to fire. This may not relate to your problem but something worth investigating.

Clean the chamber with your L bristle brush.
check the tip of your firing pin.
Have you replaced your firing pin and recoil springs?

Springs have been replaced, but firing pin is next.

Had the same problem at Camp Perry a while back with a Victor with over 90K rounds. It wasn't the firing pin, spring, or recoil spring, but the mainspring which was the original.

+1

I suggest checking Main/Hammer Spring and especially spring strut / guide.
