yes… I need 5… long story short, an estate sale find & all bolt actions had the firing pins removed and the family had searched high & low, no luck.. Also need a couple Sako Vixen firing pins as well.  Thanks in advance for any help.

My default parts supplier (Homestead) appears to be out of them but if you let them know you need some they will contact you when available.

Thanks.  I’ve also talked with Jim Wisner, he’s 3 months out before he will be making a batch…I might just have to wait.  Still, it’s a fun hunt…

I guess the M70 firing pin was not a normal replacement item. My other sources came up short as well. I’m thinking the ‘smiths who install the upgraded firing pins may have some “take-offs” but I don’t know any. I’ll contact my gunsmith but he’s a bit of a hoarder.

have to be pre-64…  I’m checking to see if Kimber Big Game rifle firing pins would work.  Wisner’s in Adna, Wa. will be making some in the fall… I’m just impatient and want my toys now.
