Part Identification Help

Post by 329 » Sun Feb 07, 2016 6:32 am

Was wondering if anyone knew what model-caliber these firing pins go to?

I am guessing .308 on the firing pins, as the heads are longer than .223!!! :D

There are two styles of .223 firing pins.
One is spring loaded like on the M76 and M78 rifles I have seen.
The other is floating as found on the M71s I have seen.
The complete bolts appear interchangeable between the said rifles.
How long are they and how wide is the head on the rear of the pin?
I can check your measurements against mine in .223, .308, and 30-06 that are still in their bolts.

Those are mine, 329 was kind enough to post them in the correct section, I have the same post in the AK general discussion. They did not fit into a .223 bolt, they were too big, my plan is to sell them but I wanted to make sure of what they are, I think they are .308 Valmet parts as well. I bought them as Valmet parts years ago thinking they were for a .223.

Shoot me their dimensions. If they match up to my .308 I would be happy to buy some from you.

Will do. Or, I could ship ship them to you, you could actually eyeball them and then decide. What are they worth?
