I have a 597 about 4-5 years old and about 7,000 rounds down and now I'm having light strikes on the rim in varied depth. I've changed out the firing pin and spring, bolt guides, bolt guide springs and blown out and oiled the action and I'm still getting light strikes. What should I look at now?

Measure the firing pin protrusion if you can, and make sure the end of the firing pin isn't peened over from dry firing. Also see if there is dirt or powder residue inside the bolt that would limit the firing pin forward movement.
