HK G3 Firing Pin - Original Repair Part from H&K for the G3 Rifle
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.
Like all other rifles, the G3 relies on a series of parts to complete the firing sequence. Should any of those parts break or fail, your G3 will have to be shelved until a repair is possible. One of the most critical components to the firing sequence is the firing pin. It has firing in its name for crying out loud. Holding the all-important duty of striking the primer on a cartridge case, the firing pin is the final stop before a bullet is off to the races – pretty important. As such, you should always keep at least one spare firing pin around.
Now, you have the opportunity to purchase an original HK firing pin for your G3. Made in Germany, this original firing pin is guaranteed to keep your G3 in working order for the foreseeable future. Grab one (or two) today for just $8.95.
G3 Firing Pin
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.
Pick up a spare G3 firing pin today for just $8.95.
Mine that I ordered was in excellent condition. True HK Part!
A Must Have for Every G3/CETME Owner
This is as described, its new and appears to come in the original packaging from Germany. Every G3 owner should have at least one spare firing pin around. Also for Cetme owners, the firing pin is one of the few parts that are actually interchangeable with the G3, in fact CETME firing pins are susceptible to breakage and I recommend that the firing pin be replaced with a G3 firing pin to prevent accidental discharges.
Good for spare parts kit
Review byHK Al
I bought several of these as spare parts. All of them were used, but appear functional.
Good price but not NIW
Good deal on a new firing pin. Does not come in factory wrap but looks like new.
Review byHK Fan
I bought it as a spare. Unlike the review from 2011, my firing pin is used. I recommend HK91 owners to purchase one as a spare.
original for nearly free
The firing pin is one part of most firearms that costs a lot more than what you would expect. I expected it to be a bit pricey, but no. Now I have a back up pin for a beast of a rifle that will probably never break one.
stock up on your replacement parts before they get banned too!
A+... Pin arrived looking like new
There were a couple of finish rubs on the side but it looked like it had never been used.. The tip and hammer end both had 100% finish... Great deal.
Great find at a great price. Will be picking up another shortly.
Extra Firing Pins Are A No Brainer!
On of if not the most important spares you could have is firing pins. I have not received mine yet since I just ordered it, but after reading the other reviews, you can't go wrong with a new pin for the price they are being offered here so I got 2.
Got this and others as spares. This appears new and shows quality workmanship. Should last forever but this sale will not.
good used condition
G3 Firing pin looks in good and in good condition. Have as a pair since the G3/HK91 parts are pretty much out of production.
Want for a spare. Sealed in heavy clear plastic. I like that.
New HK firing pins at this price is unheard of, will buy some more with my next order!
