When I was using the JB Weld I was thinking why not use the JB and make a bridge across the firing pin channel then when it is dry go in with a needle file and file the JB enough to let the firing pin through. If you were careful you could make the opening just a few thousands bigger than the pin. There is virtually no upward pressure from the firing pin so I would think the JB would last forever.

Thoughts ?
