Q: I have an gen 2, 6.5 Grendel bcg. Will this fit? Having a hard time blowing off some wolf ammo that I bought. Took a chance and may have lost. Lol already I stalled the hyper fire trigger group and no help.
A: Our enhanced firing pin will fit any mil-spec AR-15 BCG. I would talk with Hiperfire to see if they can get you heavier springs for steel case ammunition. If you don't want to go that route and buy an enhanced firing pin just note it could cause pierced primers so we high highly recommend checking primers. Piercing primers will erode the firing pin's tip away.
Q: Would there be in an issue with a drop in trigger and advanced firing pin? I ran brass just fine suppressed. Now having problems running 154 gr SP Tul ammo.
A: Our enhanced firing pins will work with drop in triggers; however, some drop in triggers do not play well with 7.62x39 and steel case ammunition.
Q: Thoughts on using this pin in a 6.5Grendel bolt? My Toolcraft 6.5g BCG appears to contain a standard "556" firing pin which seems like a design mistake. Would I need to switch back to a standard pin if shooting brass case/boxer primed 6.5g?
A: 6.5 Grendel utilizes a standard firing pin, using a enhanced firing pin can cause pierced primers. If you are experiencing light strikes then you may have a hammer spring installed incorrectly. You can always send us a message through our CONTACT US page and attach a picture of your lower so we can view your hammer spring.
Q: Will this firing pin fit in my IOC AK-47, it is an older model maybe seven or eight years old.
A: Enhanced firing pin is designed to work in an AR-15 and is not compatible with the AK47 platform.
Q: Will this firing pin work as is in a paletto state armory KS 47?
A: If your PSA KS-47 utilizes an mil-spec AR-15 firing pin then yes this will work.
Q: I have a radical firearms ar 47 will it work in it?
A: If your Radical AR47 utilizes a mil-spec firing pin then this firing pin will work.
Q: I have a anderson ar pistol chambered for 762x39 it's a side charge. My question is will this pin give me more punch or no...? I am buying a heavier hammer spring, and buffer with spring. I need a better hitting firing pin, can this do the job..? let me know please and thank you
A: Our enhanced firing pins are designed to allow for further protrusion to set off harder primers. This firing pin will work in an Anderson setup.
Q: Does the firing pin work with standard milspec springs or are the extra power hammer springs recommended? I heard that the extra power hammer springs shouldn’t make a difference in primer ignition in theory but I keep hearing people recommend the extra power hammer springs with the enhanced firing pin for reliable ignition. What are your thoughts on this?
A: In most instances a mil-spec hammer spring (installed correctly...yes we see many installed improperly) and an enhanced firing pin is all you need in this caliber. Now for the 5.45x39 caliber needs both.
Q: Is this a bit longer to deliver a more solid hit on steel case (Russian) ammo primers
A: Enhanced Firing Pins Are Engineered to Maintain Mil-Spec Characteristic Where the Firing Pin Interfaces Inside the Bolt and Still Allow Greater Protrusion Into the Primer.
Q: Can the 7.62x39/5.45x39 enhanced pin be used on .223/5.56? And, if so, would it reduce light strikes on steel case ammo? Lastly, if used in .223/5.56 with brass is there a
A: We don't suggest using the enhanced firing pins in other calibers. If you are experiencing light strikes in a 5.56 something else is going on with your rifle. Yes you can pierce primers in 5.56. If you are having light strikes in this caliber with steel case ammunition please call us so we can help you troubleshoot.
