CAME ACROSS SOME NEW OLD STOCK VALMET (FACTORY) FIRING PINS WHICH I PURCHASED A FEW YEARS AGO. NEED SOME HELP IDENTIFYING THEM, AS TO MODELS AND CALIBER! I SHOULD HAVE MARKED THE BAGS YEARS AGO, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I NEGLECTED TO DO SO! Sad ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!

Tony,

Based on his photos the shorter pins with the springs appear to be for the
M-76 in .223 Caliber. But nothing there on the longer ones.

Think I got these pins from Chris via you, a long time ago. But I could be wrong! Sad

Must be someone here who has the answer! Smile

Thanks,

Eric

My best guess: Very Happy

Firing pin 1--- appears to be the newer style, M78 (based upon length, small head, and longer tapering at the head)

Firing pin 2--- appears to be the original style, M76 (based on larger head, thin spring, and shorter tapering at the head--- thickness at body should be 1.62mm--- v. 1.32mm for the newer)

Any difference in a pin for 223 Caliber or 308? Smile
