    Any LI smiths that can drop in a MINI 30 firing pin?

    Anyone know of any smiths on LI but also not too far out in Suffolk that can drop in a new firing pin on a Mini 30? I’d send it back to ruger but the problem is their firing pins don’t have enough protrusion length to set off the primers on steel case, so I ended up getting an extended pin from firingpins.com since I’ve heard nothing it good reviews. I’d do it my self but I’ve also heard they may require fitting.

      The fitting of the pin just requires a file. Install the new pin, fire an empty case with a live primer and see how deep it penetrates. file the backside of the firing pin until a test rounds primer looks normal.. or you could buy a firing pin protrusion gauge or come up with a different clever way to measure the protruding pin and fit it without the trial and error. I did this on my mini and now it is able to shoot any kind of ammo you feed it.

        Yea I’d do that but I’m honestly not good with that stuff at all. Have you used the pins from firingpins.com? Most of the reviews state they just drop in. Now what would happen on live ammo if a primer was pierced?

      Measure it against the old pin.
