39a Broke Firing Pin



Log in to see fewer ads
I was at the range recently and let my friend shoot my 39a. He dry fired it, and it would no longer fire a round after the dry fire. I inspected it when I got home, and the tip broke off of the firing pin. Can someone recommend a good source for a new firing pin? The rifle was made in the mid 2000s.

I saw one on Midway's website but wanted to get some opinions before I order one.

Thanks for the help. I need to fix this rifle asap. Small game season opened today in Michigan.

Iíd call Wisnerís gun parts and see if the pins they have will work in your rifle. Iím pretty sure they will and Iíve been happy with the pins I picked up from them.

Marlin sent me to Jack First for parts. They have firing pins in stock:

And we had this dry firing discussion in another thread, and it seems I am one of the few that warn against it. Everyone else seems to think its OK. I worked for a gunsmith and our #1 repair was broken firing pins from DRY FIRING.

Please trust what I say., Its not hear say input. Its actual hand on replacing thousands of firing pins.

And please...Big_Fisherman, this is not towards you, but those who have already been viewing the thread on whether dry firing is OK or not. Just warning against it even harder now that we have actual dry firing that broke a firing pin which many just do not believe can happen.

Check with local gunsmiths to see if they may have one laying around. The one I worked for had drawer after drawer full of spare parts. Wisners is probably your best chance, but you will have to wait for it to arrive. Good luck.

The only time mine ever get dry fired is when I miscount while firing (once in a while you will miscount) or I let someone shoot it and tell them to keep count and they loose or don't keep count. Frustrating.

I'm very careful to not dry fire my rifles and actually asked my friend to be careful about dry firing the rifle. I guess he didn't understand or just made a mistake. At any rate, I have to fix the broken firing pin.

Thanks to everyone that posted in the thread. I'll update this thread when the new firing pins arrives and I install it.
