Firing pin options
« on: January 29, 2020, 08:29:26 AM »
Iím tinkering around with a model 700, I ran across a deal on an aftermarket firing pin assembly. It claims to make a lot of things better and it has excellent reviews. This isnít something I had thought of before, now Iím wondering if the juice is worth the squeeze?

I think that that would be pretty far down my list on accurizing a rifle after barrel, action work, trigger, stock, load development.  If you have optimized all that, and optics, I would consider it.

So if you have done everything you can and still want a bit more, do it, theyre not overly expensive.  Rem factory fp assy can be sloppy so it cant hurt.

Unless there is an issue with your current firing pin assembly I donít really see a reason to change it. Also if I were going to change the pin assembly I would want to have the bolt face bushes and the pin fit to that.
