Is M60Joe (I think) Still The Best M16 Repair Guy?

I seem to recall getting an email for M60Joe or JoeM60 (I think) a year or two ago.
Went to shoot my Essential Arms/Bushy M16 today, and it'd fire a round, then nothing. I'd eject a live round, fire another. If I grabbed the mag, and held it by the mag, it'd fire pretty well. Never had this issue before.
I looked at the live casings, and they all had light firing pin dimples, but not enough to fire them. I tried different ammunitions (Russian Wally junk, and mil-spec green tip, same issue.
I took the firing pin out, and it didn't look that bad. I guess I can try replacing it first, but I know that the trigger pin holes are starting to oblong. I'm wondering if it's just time for a tuneup.
