This is the firing pin for a Steven M94 12g shotgun which is a newer version of my Riverside Arms 12g. And the model i was recommended for parts. This pin is too short for my gun. Hmmm What should I do? First thing i did was start calling all the mom and pops gun shops in town. The closest to a solution i received was they could make me one. Only problem with that was they would probably put quite a surcharge on a custom made part. I paid $40 for the gun so wasn't looking to spend 50% of the value of the gun for a firing pin. But i really wanted to get it firing, so i set it in my mind that I would make one. Time to study up..tick.....tock....After many hours of watching and reading i think i am ready to get started.
Equipment i used in this Instructable:
