Polished pin surfaces. 3.5# spring. TI safety plunger. Why does my firing pin move with the trigger in the fully rear position?

With the trigger in the rear position, the striker safety plunger is depressed, allowing the striker to move forward. You should check periodically to ensure that the pin is free-floating like that. If it doesn't rattle around with the plunger depressed, you've probably got gunk in the striker channel.

His gun is the faulty one; that pin should rattle around something awful any time the trigger is in the rear position. Get it cleaned up ASAP!
