Bettinsoli 12 bore firing pin

Recommended Posts

All,

Have a situation where I was getting several misfires on the lower barrel of my Bettinsoli so had a look at the firing pin and it is looking a little tired on the front face.

I have contacted RUAG who have them in stock but only deal with trade customers. They did however send me a link to some of their dealers. Now that's all fine but I am currently offshore and cannot access the RUAG website to open the link due to company filters ( http://www.ruag.co.uk/dealer-locator ) .

Firstly, is anyone available out there to access the link and point me in the direction of one of these dealers and send me an email address / phone number. (I am based in Aberdeen)

Secondly, does anyone on here actually have a new Bettinsoli firing pin I may be able to buy off of them?

I can fit the pin so just need the part and not looking to mend / lathe anything else to fit.

Not home for 2 weeks so would like to get this thing at least home before I get back to fit it before a few shoots in December.

Thanks

Thank you very much!

Did not know he was a RUAG dealer. Certainly wasn't when I bought this gun several years ago. Will give him a call in the morning.

Cant get on their website either BTW with the filters. Surprised I can get on this forum at all!

Thanks again

Thanks for the further info.

Tried calling Neil at Andersons (Seals cove) but got an 'off the hook' ringtone. I know they are open some funny times though.

Will try the others and £12.50 is a lot less than the £30 I saw some dodgy looking ones priced at on another site. 

 

Thanks

There are other RUAG stockist up in your area. If the other 2 fall flat let me know & I will jot down the others, albeit somewhat further away from your location.

John Knibbs seems to stock them - £12.50. 01675481006.

As advised by bruno22rf, John Knibbs provides a prompt & efficient service. I have had several dealings with him and always been totally satisfied.

Thanks for the efforts JJsDad. 

Ordered one from John knibbs on Wednesday and it came on Thursday. Can’t ask Mitch better than that. Just have to check it does indeed fit when I get home.

thanks again.

Pleased to help seeing a how you were evidently stranded somewhere `off-shore`. Blow that for a job this time of year.

Not being a doom monger, but bear in mind firing pins often need a light fetal to get the protrusion and free movement correct.

The summer is worse for us with fog sometimes delaying choppers for days. As long as the wind isn’t hurricane force we are normally ok. Home Xmas and new year though so not bad.

Thanks again and will see if my fettling is up to task!
