Is this the one you hit with a hammer? if so check to see if the firing pin is hitting the shell rim at all, if it is sometimes you just have to hit it harder, and make sure your holding the shell in position with down pressure on the handle. if it is the gun model then make sure that the safety lever is is reaching the trip mechanism when you are holding it down making ready to fire.

Mossberg 500 A old style firing pin; can I replace it with the new factory pin without changing bolts

It'll work but you'll need the spring, too. The old style pin was pushed back out of battery by the locking lug as you pumped the gun. It won't push the new style so you could theoretically have a stuck firing pin fire a shell out of battery. Be safe, just use the firing pin for your bolt....or buy a new bolt off of Ebay. The entire bolt is a direct switch out.

Can anyone help. ive got a hilti dx450 that won't fire, ive stripped it down and given it a good clean but still no luck getting it to work. could anyone tell me if there should be some sort of firing...

You are correct on the firing pin. Those rim fire caps have to be struck by a firing pin or it won't fire. Pull the head apart and see is the firing pin stuck or missing.

I have a model senco sn1v it fires 1 nail then the drive pin fails to retract to the reload position what could be the cause.

The air release behind the pin is stuck. take off the cover on the back and in the center you should see a cap that opens and closes to fire the pin. Carefully tap out the cap ( it is spring loaded ) clean and lub until parts slide easy so spring will close and reassemble

I have a shell stuck in the gun and can't get it out!

if it is exploded run a rod through the gun when you break it apart. if it is unexploded be careful - it's probably a rim fire cartridge. use plenty of penetrating oil.
