HD round firing pin tip



Log in to see fewer ads
When I pulled out my HD 1947 round firing pin I noticed on the tip it is not symmetrical in relation to the other corner. One corner has been ground down some. Probably to generate a deeper strike? Is that factory normal or the doing of a previous owner?

Pictures would help but the firing pin tips were no symmetrical unless they were spherical and they were not on the Model H-D Military.

The tip corner that strikes nearest to the center of the cartridge is ground down at about a 60 degree angle. The other corner which strikes at the outside end of the cartridge is at a 90 degree angle. Being this is a round shank firing pin is that factory normal or a later modification to one side?

The description sounds correct for the factory firing pin as manufactured but a photo would be better.
