I’m the owner of a Winchester 1300 (serial number L2404161). Sadly, I happened to stupidly break it’s firing pin. It’s a “last gen” firing pin, with it’s head shaped like a sliced ball. Like this one :
I do not live in the US, so I can’t access Numrich or other great american parts sellers. In my country, I can’t find any “last gen” W1300 firing pin.
But I can find an “old gen” W1300 firing pin, with it’s conic-shaped head (first pic), and a SXP’s firing pin (second pic) which looks like my broken “last gen”.
Both are expensive.
Could you tell me, please, if one of them could replace my “last gen” firing pin ?

I suspect that you are asking a question that is well outside the scope & expertise of our WACA members. We (as a group) focus on pre-1964 production Winchester arms that have collector interest and value. Your Model 1300 shotgun was manufactured by the defunct U.S. Repeating Arms Company using the leased Trademarked Winchester name. What I will suggest is that you search the internet for a gun smith who has a You-Tube video showing the process of replacing a Model 1300 firing pin.
