Default Model 10-5 misfire

just purchased a model 10-5. When shooting double action it sometimes misfires. Hammer strikes just off to side of primer. Fires every time single action. Gun seems to lockup good but I suspect the hand is worn and needs replaced. Anybody ever have this problem and where is a good source for parts.

Thanks

If you are hitting off center I'd say your timing is off on the DA cycle.Be careful and check it. It's a good thing it doesn't fire..
