Top quality and performance
Very pleased with this firing pin and BRA's service. I bought a couple cases of Golden Tiger .223 ammo from an online retailer and had a about 40% failure to fire rate out of my AR.
Ordered this firing pin and got it in a couple of days. The fit and finish is truly excellent and clearly better apparent quality than the pin that came in my Mil-Spec BCM bolt carrier group. Regardless, I popped in and tried shooting the GT .223 ammo again. It worked 100% And even fired the previous FTFs.
I then tried the pin on several "normal" .223/5.56 loads to make sure that it wasn't going to pierce any primers. Zero pierced primers out of 120 rounds! I tried it on Wolf/Barnaul .223 55gr, Federal/Lake City m855 and m193, PPU .223 55gr, Carl Gustaf m855, and Hornady TAP Training steel case. Looking at the fired primers, it is clear that the firing pin is making a slightly deeper impression, but from what I can see the metal doesn't at all look stretched or distressed.
I would recommend this firing pin to anyone.
