Q: Can this firing pin be used with brass case ammo, I don't want to have to swap out firing pins when I shoot 7.62x39 brass case ammo.
A: We have never had an issue between steel and brass nor has any of our customers reported any issues in the 10 yrs we have been manufacturing them; however, we do tell customers that if you go to brass case ammo just check the first few primers to ensure you are not piercing them.
Q: Is this an extended firing pin and will it work on a 5.56/.223
A: No, you could pierce primers if attempting to use in a 5.56 rifle. If you are experiencing light stikes in a 5.56 rifle using steel case ammunition something else is going on. First thing to check would be a hammer spring installed incorrectly.
Q: Will this firing pin work in a Palmetto State Armory KS-47?
A: If Palmetto State KS47 utilizes an overall length mil-spec firing pin then our ehanced firing pin will fit.
Q: Will this enhanced firing pin work for 300 blackout?
A: No, this firing pin was designed for the x39 calibers due to hardened primers to prevent slam fires in the SKS and AK calibers. We do not recommend using this firing pin for other calibers or it could cause pierced primers as it allows for further protrusion to set off the x39 ammunition.
Q: Will this work in the cmmg mutant MK47
It uses an ar-10 bolt not the standard 5.56 BCG
A: These firing pins are spec'd for the AR-15 7.62x39 bolt assemblies which utilize mil-spec AR-15 Bolt Carriers. These bolt assemblies are not spec'd for any firearms spec'd larger than the AR-15.
Q: Will this work for both 5.56 AND 7.62x39 platforms? I would like to install them on both rifle platforms
A: No, these are not designed for other calibers as they can cause pierced primers. If you are having issues with setting off 5.56 steel case ammunition and light strikes please reach out to us as something else is going on. Enhanced firing pins are only designed for the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 platforms.
Q: do you offer wholesale for other dealers
A: While we do have a dealer program, we had to stop accepting bringing on new dealers due to supply and demand on all products. If you are only wanting to create a dealer account for enhanced firing pins, please reach out to us during normal business hours.
Q: The enhanced firing pin is a good fix for steel case ammo. If I shoot brass ammo, do I need to re-install the original firing pin?
A: We have never seen an issue nor heard of any issues from customers about switching from steel to brass with the enhanced firing pin; however, we still give the disclaimer to check the first few brass primers when using an enhanced firing pin to ensure no pierce primers.
Q: What do you mean inhanced? Better steel?
A: Enhanced means it's designed to allow for further protrusion to ensure ignition of hard primers on steel case ammunition in this caliber.
Q: Hello - I ordered and received my enhanced firing pin - the packaging says "AR15 Enhanced Firing Pin" I ordered the 7.62x39 pin and just wanted to make sure I received the correct pin I didn't know if the packaging would have 7.62x39 on it? Thanks!
A: Yes, you have the correct pin. The package is only marked Enhanced Firing Pin.
