G3 Firing Pin

The only time the word bad should be anywhere near the words Heckler & Koch G3 in a sentence is when you are describing a dysfunctional G3 that has been put out of commission in some way. If that does not speak to my admiration of one of the world's finest battle rifles, then I do not know what will. Just thinking about a poor, broken G3 is making me teary eyed.

The G3 firing pin is a steel pin that is located in the bolt of the G3. As part of the firing mechanism, the firing pin is responsible for transferring energy from the hammer to the primer of a cartridge. When the hammer strikes the firing pin, it will jolt forward and in turn strike the primer, which serves to ignite the propellant gases in a cartridge and send a bullet downrange. This part is absolutely necessary for a successful completion of the firing sequence. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to any firearm. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially components of the firing sequence. The firing pin is absolutely one of the most critical parts of a firearm. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com has a wealth of authentic, original factory parts from HK for the G3/HK91/PTR91. Not only are they readily available, but also they are cheap. Now is the time to take advantage.
