Snapped firing pin sxs

Recommended Posts

Hello 


Sorry to bother you alI  I have a spanish side by side 12g shotgun . It's quite old and I cant find a make . When I am out in the field it miss fires a lot on the right hand barrel, so I sent it off to the shop who I brought it off as it was a snapped pin , since being back out with it the issue was still happening . So today I have looked at the pins my self and he hasn't changed it at all as the pin is snapped still on the right as before . 


Can you help me out on how measure it so I could buy a replacement. Or has any one seen one like this before .


Thank for your time 

Sean

most decent gunsmiths will make 2 new pins for the gun..........at a reasonable cost......my old spanish aya #2 both the pins snapped and i took it into my smith and he said he preferred to make his own as he belived the aya pins were to hard and brittle...................

Try and get a local engineer or someone with a lathe who understands different steels to make you one. Ten min job to the right man. Use silver steel, harden it and then polish up and temper until purple. I made dozens, it won’t break again.

Just make sure you know the difference between a gunsmith and a gun dealer ( shop that sells guns)

Yes mate I do the reason I took it back to the gun dealer was because he said he uses a gunsmith who repairs some of the second hand guns he sells but obviously in my case it didn't work out too well .
