Help on Winchester 93
June 25, 2014

Hello folks,
I am in need of a drawing, photograph, picture, sketch or what have you for the Firing Pin for a Model 1893 Winchester shotgun.

The Firing Pin in the 93 that I am cleaning up is broken. I can repair the two main broken pieces but there appears to have been a "fin" near the front of the FP that rides in a slot in the Bolt. What I am looking for is the shape of this missing fin and if anyone happens to know it purpose.

There are no plans to fire this piece after I clean it up but I’d just like it to function correctly.

Here are a few pictures to help explain my missing info.

I have a scanned copy of the 1896 catalog that shows a picture of the firing pin (with the fin), along with the parts list, and instructions for disassembling the gun if you are interested.

Bert that would be awesome. You can send it to my e-mail if that’s easier than posting here.


Much obliged. 😀
