Firing pin

Recommended Posts

Waaaaay different.  Design-wise, similar, but that's about it.  Size makes a difference...  <lmao>

Funny, all the girls at the dance said it wasn't so. 

Thanks for the help guys.

Longer, wider, with an extra "bump" in it...  All the stuff you never like to hear, really.  <dontknow>  <lmao>

Here's a small pic of the .308 FP, in the BCG breakdown:

If I get the time tomorrow, I'll do a side-by-side pic of the 5.56 and the .308 firing pins.  <thumbsup>

9-year Necro on this one.  I'll go measure this now...  

Edit -bolt face depth from the front of the lugs is 0.130" on an Aero/ToolCraft BCG. Firing pin protrusion from the front of the lugs is 0.090".  Firing pin protrusion on this BCG would be 0.040". Measure multiple times, around the bolt face lugs - so at multiple lugs, both to the bolt face and to the firing pin protrusion.

I'll measure an Armalite AR-10 BCG and a DWilson BCG later, and report back.  Won't be tonight, though.
