Q: I have an KS-47, will this allow me to shoot steel/ brass or only steel ammo ?
A: We have never had issues going between steel and brass, but we always tell customers if you are going between steel and brass just check the first few brass casings primers to ensure you are not piercing primers.
Q: Will this work on the KS47 rifle?
A: If that platform takes a mil-spec firing pin then yes this firing pin will work as we retain the overall mil-spec characteristics.
Q: I bought an enhanced firing from y’all several years ago for the ar 15 in 7.62x39
I now have an ar15 in 223/556, I want to be able to switch lowers between the two calibers
Can I use the 7.62x39 enhanced firing pin in the 556 also?
A: We don't recommend it as you can pierce 5.56 primers. If you do decide to use the enhanced firing pin in your 5.56 we highly recommend checking for any pierce primers when using new ammo. If you are piercing primers install a standard firing pin for that caliber. Piercing primers will erode the tip of the firing pin if regularly piercing primers.
Q: Will this firing pin work in a CMMG MK47 Resolute?
A: If the CMMG MK47 Resolute utilizes a standard AR-15 firing pin then yes the Enhanced Firing Pin will work.
Q: Please tell me how much longer the enhanced/extended firing pin for the 7.62x39 AR15 is than the standard firing pin. Thank you.
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: Who makes this firing pin, I know the BCA ones are breaking the tip off.
A: We have been manufacturing our own firing pins for around 12 yrs. We did the specs/drawings/machining/testing. We do not buy from other sources.
Q: I’m having FTF issues with on a 7.62x39 upper with Tula ammo (primers set deep). I’ve already installed a higher strength hammer spring, and wanting to install an enhanced firing pin. Which one do I need?
A: For deep set primers we recommend Part Number: 221214
While we did test on other ammunition and didn't experience pierce primers we always state while using new ammunition with this part number check the first few primers for pierce primers.

Q: Does the enhanced plus option change anything? What is the difference?
A: Enhanced firing pin is for the harder primers in the x39 calibers it allows for further protrusion. The Enhanced Plus firing pin allows for even further protrusion for those that have lot's of ammunition like we have seen in Tula that have deep set primers.
Q: Shooting wolf ammo 7.62x39 and on occasion primer strike is not dedinating primers. Do u recommend enhanced or enhanced plus firing pin?
A: If you are having trouble with light strikes with an enhanced firing pin we ask that you contact us and ask for Charles so he can troubleshoot with you. There are other things outside of having an enhanced firing pin that can cause light strikes. You can reach out to us at: 386-410-5162
Q: Will this enhanced firing pin work with Radical Arms 7.62x39
Q: I have a .458 socom. This runs a standard .223/.556 firing pin. Either my .458 bolt is out of spec or the firing pin is a little shy of proper length. I've also noticed that the same firing pin had a greater protrusion through a .223 bolt. I'm looking at the enhanced firing pin in hopes to solve a soft strike issue with my .458. My question is the enhanced firing pin the same as a .556... apart from being enhanced.
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. For technical support call Thursday or Friday and ask for Charles: 386-410-5162. There could be a few things going on to cause light strikes.
Q: If I’m buy this enhanced firing pin do I still select the box that says (add enhanced firing pin) or does it not need that extra option added?
A: Options are optional and do not need to be selected if you do not want those additional optional parts. So if you just want an enhanced firing pin just add to cart and checkout.
Q: What's the dimensions from the enhanced compared to the one that comes with the BCA 7.62×39 upper?
A: We would not know that, we do not have the spec's for the BCA enhanced firing pin. Our enhanced firing pins are not bought from suppliers of firearm parts, we designed our enhanced firing pins over 10 years ago and we machine our own enhanced firing pins.
Q: Does it fit ar15 556
A: While it will fit in an AR15 556 we don't recommend it as it can cause pierced primers.
Q: Gotta material question.... the firing pin what's it made... Specifically the corrosion resistance.... making a sait water build for marsh and swamp. And thanks for your time.
A: We use a stainless steel that is the most corrosion resistance. It's used in racing boat props, we don't give exact material due to others in the industry being competitive. The material exhibits superior corrosion resistance.

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.

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.
Q: Are there any stores in Tyler, Tx that would carry this firing pin?
A: I am not aware of any dealers in your area that would carry our enhanced firing pins.
Q: I’m looking for an enhanced firing pin for ARs chambered in 5.45x39 and would like to know if these will protrude equivalent to an AK 74 for reliability. Any info confirming this application you can give is greatly appreciated.

Q: I just received my second set of firing pin and hammer spring for 7.62x39. They work flawlessly. My question is do they come with any warranty if needed.
A: All smart parts have a 6 month warranty against manufacturing defects. All small parts at some point will need to be replaced.
Q: will this fit a side charging bolt
A: It will fit any bolt with AR-15 mil-spec characteristics.
Q: Will this fit a 300 blackout
A: Yes it will fit; however, you should not use an enhanced firing pin with other calibers outside of the products description as you can cause pierce primers. If you are having light strikes please ensure hammer spring is installed correctly.
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.

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.
Q: Will this work on a M&M Industries M10X?
A: Sorry, we are not familiar with their platform. You should contact the company for verification of compatibility.
Q: Would this be ok if I am going to shooting steel and brass case (7.62x39) ammo? Or is it only recommended when shooting steel cased?
A: Yes it can. We have not heard or experienced any issues using our enhanced firing pin in this caliber for steel or brass case ammunition. We do state to always check the first few rounds of brass case when you first start shooting to ensure you are not piercing primers, but we have not experience it nor have any of our customers reported any issues.
Q: I have a new psa 47 gen 2 will this pin work in the rifle the rifle only fires once out every 4-5 rounds. The rounds will fire fine ina standard ak.

Q: Will this pin work on my PSA AR47/KS47?
A: If that platform takes a mil-spec firing pin then yes this firing pin will work as we retain the overall mil-spec characteristics.
Q: I have a ks47 Gen 2 will this work?
A: Yes, I have one as well and this works for Red Army Standard, Wolf, and likely anything else you'll feed it.
A: If PSA is utilizing an overall mil-spec length for a bolt assembly it should work fine.
Q: Does this come with the retaining pin as well?
A: No, this is just for for the enhanced firing pin. The retaining pin s can be located here and are in limited supply, https://www.blackriflearms.com/AR-15-Firing-Pin-Retaining-Pin_p_189.html
Q: I have a BCA Rifle that has a lower for multi caliber and my upper is 762x39. Having alot of light strikes shooting steel cased ammo. Will this enhanced firing pin work for my rifle.
A: Yes this firing pin will help with light strikes, if you continue to have light strikes after installing then something else is going on with your rifle such as an improperly installed hammer spring.
Q: Will this work with and Anderson lower
A: Our AR-15 enhanced firing pin will work with a mil-spec AR-15 Anderson Lower or any AR-15 Mil-spec lower.
Q: I have a Bear creek side charging ar15 upper in 7.62x39 and wanted to know if this firing pin I'll work in it or not?
A: It should work just fine. We have customers with BCA rifles that purchase our enhanced firing pins with no issues.
Q: I'm building a ar47 currently and I've heard I either need to upgrade the firing pin or hammer spring to use steel case ammo with hard primers do I need 1 of those options or both I currentl have the wolf xp hammer spring
A: In this caliber, we have no issues with using a mil-spec hammer spring and an enhanced firing pin. In our 7.62x39 demo rifles we only run an enhanced firing pin, we have never needed the Wolf XP Hammer Spring as long as we use a mil-spec hammer spring. If a customer is running an Enhanced Firing Pin and a mil-spec hammer spring and still having issues we have pinpointed it to their hammer spring was installed incorrectly and we have them remove it and reinstall properly and then they have no issues.
Q: Will this firing pin work for a 6.5 grendel bolt?
A: No, it may have the potential to over penetrate and pierce primers. A 6.5 grendel only requires the standard AR-15 firing pin to shoot steel case ammunition. This firing pin was specifically made for the 7.62x39 caliber due to the extremely hardened primers to prevent slam fires in the SKS and AK47 rifle platforms.
Q: would this pin work on any caliber such as 5.56, 6.8spc or is it only for 7.62x39?
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56, 6.8 SPC calibers as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion to ensure positive ignition in the notorious hardened primers of the 7.62x39. Using this enhanced firing pin in a 5.56 or 6.8 SPC calibers could cause pierce primers. Standard firing will work on 5.56 or 6.8 SPC steel case ammunition with no issues as they don't have a hard primer like those found in the 7.62x39 or 5.45x39 calibers.
Q: I have a question I bought one of your firing pins installed it I also have the JP heavy hammer and spring set installed in my lower and I'm still getting like strikes out of wolf and other steel case ammo question I thought this was going to solve the problem anything you guys can do to help?
A: I sent you a private message as we are not showing any purchase of a enhanced firing pin, only Wolf XP Hammer Spring.
Q: Currently I’m running a Toolcraft 7.62x39 bolt which in its description state it comes with an enhanced firing pin. In your opinion are all “enhanced” pins the same, or are their differences between the two? Thanks
A: I'm not sure where Toolcraft buys their enhanced firing pins from, but no not all enhanced firing pins are the same. We have been doing our own enhanced firing pins for about 8 yrs now and have our own drawing/specs. Now when it comes to Tula and Golden Tiger Ammo one can still experience light strikes depending on the lot of ammo, we have seen some Tula or Golden Tiger where the primers were set to deep or was not crimped properly allowing the primer to move forward when fired. Due to this we highly recommend sticking to Wolf as we have not seen this issue with Wolf or Silver Bear Ammo.
Q: Will this firing pin also work for brass ammo
A: Yes it can. We have not heard or experienced any issues using our enhanced firing pin in this caliber for steel or brass case ammunition. We do state to always check the first few rounds of brass case when you first start shooting to ensure you are not piercing primers, but we have no experience it nor have any of our customers reported any issues.
Q: can the ar-15 7.62x39 enhanced firing pin be used in 5.56/.223 ars to midigate shooting steel .223 rounds? or is it just for the 7.62x39?
I'd like to install this in my 7.62x39 ar-15, as well as some of my .223 ars that i shoot steel cased ammo in.
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56 caliber as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion to ensure positive ignition in the notorious hardened primers of the 7.62x39. Using this enhanced firing pin in a 5.56 caliber could cause pierce primers. Standard firing will work on 5.56 steel case ammunition with no issues.
Q: Will this pin run in a Bear Creek Arsenal bolt for AR 7.62x39? I'm assuming yes but never hurts to get confirmation. Thanks
A: I just installed this firing pin in a BCA 762x39 upper with a standard mil-spec trigger spring and have had no problems shooting Russian ammo.
A: Our enhanced firing pins are designed to run in any R-15 mil-spec dimension bolt assemblies, so if BCA bolt assemblies are to mil-spec dimensions it will work just fine.
Q: AR-15 7.62x39 Enhanced Firing Pin
Is this firing pin a bit longer than a regular firing pin? I already ordered it and received your firing pin but just wondering if it is a bit longer. I was told that that’s what I need to avoid hard primer strikes without firing. Thanks.
A: If you ordered the enhanced firing pin it is what you need for steel case ammo. Per our description on products page: PLEASE NOTE: Overall Length is irrelevant to the performance of our enhanced firing pin. We designed our enhanced firing pin with multiple dimensional changes beyond overall length.
Q: How much is shipping for the firing Pin?
A: Shipping varies so there is not a set shipping cost, it varies by first class and Priority. You may add firing pin to cart then go to cart and put in your zip code for shipping cost to your zip code.
Q: I have an Anderson AR15 in 7.62x39. Will this pin work in my Anderson?
Q: I see this pin works well with the 762x39 steel cased ammo using the hard berdan primers, but what about the "good stuff" brass ammo with the boxer primers? I shoot both types of ammo and I don't want to have any pierced primers when shooting the softer primers. Thanks
A: We have never seen an issue with going from steel to brass; however, we still ask when you do go over to brass with the enhanced firing pin installed to check to see if you are experiencing any pierced primers for precaution.
Q: will this fit mgi bolt?
A: If MGI bolt will take an AR-15 firing pin then this enhanced firing pin should not have any compatibility issues.
Q: I bought a bulk amount of 223 Russian ammo that apparently have 5.45x39 hard primers in them. What do you recommend I use? The 545 or 762 enhanced firing pin? A.
A: The 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 enhanced firing pins are identical so either one will work with the hard primers.
Q: Will this firing pin fit on a Ruger mini 30?
A: No, this enhanced firing pin is designed for the AR-15 platform.
Q: will your 7.62 x 39 enhanced firing pin work with an ARP 6.5 Grendel upper? I am having unreliable ignition with 6.5g Wolf ammo and a Jewel trigger?
A: The enhanced firing pin will fit any mil-spec AR-15 bolt assembly, so will it will work in a 6.5 Grendel, we do highly recommend that if you use an enhanced firing pin with your 6.5 Grendel that you watch for pierced primers as it does allow for further penetration.
Q: I just installed the firing pin in my AR Olympic Arms bolt and noticed that there is a gap between the firing pin stop and the back end of the bolt. Is it safe to use like this?
A: Please do not use and contact Olympic Arms. When we dealt with them years ago they were shortening the tail end of their 7.62x39 bolts for use with standard firing pins. I'm concerned if they machine their bolts for standard firing in our enhanced firing pin may pierce primers.
Q: I recently purchased 2k rounds of Golden Tiger .223 . I am getting light strikes. Will the Enhanced 7.62 x39 firing pin work in a .223 AR 15 bolt?
A: Our enhanced firing pin will work in any AR-15 mil-spec bolt; however, we highly recommend that you check for pierced primers if not using in n x39 caliber rifle.
Q: Will this pin work in a 5.56 ar?
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56 caliber as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion and can cause pierce primers. Please stick with standard firing pin for the 5.56 ammunition.
Q: Will this fit a MK47 Mutant 7.62x39?
A: If it uses a mil-spec firing pin then this pin should work fine.
Q: Is this enhanced pin a few thousandths longer?
A: Without getting too technical, we designed it with a couple of other features that allow the best performance where we saw some functionality issues with other designs. Overall length is irrelevant to the performance of our enhanced firing pin. We designed our enhanced firing pin with multiple dimensional changes beyond overall length.
Q: Can this be used on standard 308 ammo?
A: No, the 7.62x39 is for the AR-15 platform of rifles and is not designed for use with the larger platform such as the .308/AR-10/7.62x51.
