Asked by: Ccm - 10/8/2020
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 while still allowing for further protrusion to set off steel case ammunition.

Asked by: Pat Buell - 6/19/2020

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

Asked by: Cody - 4/21/2020
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?

Asked by: Tyler - 2/20/2020
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?

Asked by: jim - 11/13/2019
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.

Asked by: D - 10/24/2019

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

Asked by: Jerome - 9/17/2019
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

Asked by: Travis - 6/6/2019
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.

Asked by: Lucas - 6/4/2019
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

Asked by: Mark in Michigan - 4/25/2019
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.
Answer provided by: Todd (12/2/2019)
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.

Asked by: Patricio Avila - 3/23/2019
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: 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

Asked by: Dave - 6/3/2017
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.

A: The 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 enhanced firing pins are identical so either one will work with the hard primers.

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?

Asked by: Dave - 12/30/2016
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?

Asked by: Mike Laufer - 12/16/2016
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.

Asked by: MARK - 12/1/2015
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.
