Looking to buy a firing pin for a 1941 vintage Winchester Model 70 in .22 Hornet.

Hi Michael-

I’m afraid that I do not have the parts you need.  I’m just a collector and I don’t keep a lot of parts.  Most of what I have are things I bought b/c I “might” need it sometime… 

That said, the GOOD NEWS is that the bolt internals of a pre-64 M70 22 HORNET are mostly the same as any other chambering.  Firing pin-striker, bolt sleeve-safety, spring retaining collar, etc. It’s said that the firing pin spring itself for the Hornet has a couple more coils, and the bolt body, extractor, and extractor collar-bolt stop extension are unique, as is the ejector itself that’s part of the “inner” magazine box assembly.  

But if you only need the firing pin, you should be in good shape.  They aren’t too hard to find… Laugh
