Q: will this fit a side charging bolt
A: It will fit any bolt with AR-15 mil-spec characteristics.
Q: Will this fit a 300 blackout
A: Yes it will fit; however, you should not use an enhanced firing pin with other calibers outside of the products description as you can cause pierce primers. If you are having light strikes please ensure hammer spring is installed correctly.
Q: Can this firing pin be used with brass case ammo, I don't want to have to swap out firing pins when I shoot 7.62x39 brass case ammo.
A: We have never had an issue between steel and brass nor has any of our customers reported any issues in the 10 yrs we have been manufacturing them; however, we do tell customers that if you go to brass case ammo just check the first few primers to ensure you are not piercing them.
Q: Is this an extended firing pin and will it work on a 5.56/.223
A: No, you could pierce primers if attempting to use in a 5.56 rifle. If you are experiencing light stikes in a 5.56 rifle using steel case ammunition something else is going on. First thing to check would be a hammer spring installed incorrectly.
Q: Will this firing pin work in a Palmetto State Armory KS-47?
A: If Palmetto State KS47 utilizes an overall length mil-spec firing pin then our ehanced firing pin will fit.
Q: Will this enhanced firing pin work for 300 blackout?
A: No, this firing pin was designed for the x39 calibers due to hardened primers to prevent slam fires in the SKS and AK calibers. We do not recommend using this firing pin for other calibers or it could cause pierced primers as it allows for further protrusion to set off the x39 ammunition.
Q: Will this work in the cmmg mutant MK47
It uses an ar-10 bolt not the standard 5.56 BCG
A: These firing pins are spec'd for the AR-15 7.62x39 bolt assemblies which utilize mil-spec AR-15 Bolt Carriers. These bolt assemblies are not spec'd for any firearms spec'd larger than the AR-15.
Q: Will this work for both 5.56 AND 7.62x39 platforms? I would like to install them on both rifle platforms
A: No, these are not designed for other calibers as they can cause pierced primers. If you are having issues with setting off 5.56 steel case ammunition and light strikes please reach out to us as something else is going on. Enhanced firing pins are only designed for the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 platforms.
Q: do you offer wholesale for other dealers
A: While we do have a dealer program, we had to stop accepting bringing on new dealers due to supply and demand on all products. If you are only wanting to create a dealer account for enhanced firing pins, please reach out to us during normal business hours.
Q: The enhanced firing pin is a good fix for steel case ammo. If I shoot brass ammo, do I need to re-install the original firing pin?
A: We have never seen an issue nor heard of any issues from customers about switching from steel to brass with the enhanced firing pin; however, we still give the disclaimer to check the first few brass primers when using an enhanced firing pin to ensure no pierce primers.
Q: What do you mean inhanced? Better steel?
A: Enhanced means it's designed to allow for further protrusion to ensure ignition of hard primers on steel case ammunition in this caliber.
Q: Hello - I ordered and received my enhanced firing pin - the packaging says "AR15 Enhanced Firing Pin" I ordered the 7.62x39 pin and just wanted to make sure I received the correct pin I didn't know if the packaging would have 7.62x39 on it? Thanks!
A: Yes, you have the correct pin. The package is only marked Enhanced Firing Pin.
Q: Will this work on a M&M Industries M10X?
A: Sorry, we are not familiar with their platform. You should contact the company for verification of compatibility.
Q: Would this be ok if I am going to shooting steel and brass case (7.62x39) ammo? Or is it only recommended when shooting steel cased?
A: Yes it can. We have not heard or experienced any issues using our enhanced firing pin in this caliber for steel or brass case ammunition. We do state to always check the first few rounds of brass case when you first start shooting to ensure you are not piercing primers, but we have not experience it nor have any of our customers reported any issues.
Q: I have a new psa 47 gen 2 will this pin work in the rifle the rifle only fires once out every 4-5 rounds. The rounds will fire fine ina standard ak.
A: If that platform takes a mil-spec firing pin then yes this firing pin will work as we retain the overall mil-spec characteristics while still allowing for further protrusion to set off steel case ammunition.
Q: Will this pin work on my PSA AR47/KS47?
A: If that platform takes a mil-spec firing pin then yes this firing pin will work as we retain the overall mil-spec characteristics.
Q: I have a ks47 Gen 2 will this work?
A: Yes, I have one as well and this works for Red Army Standard, Wolf, and likely anything else you'll feed it.
A: If PSA is utilizing an overall mil-spec length for a bolt assembly it should work fine.
Q: Does this come with the retaining pin as well?
A: No, this is just for for the enhanced firing pin. The retaining pin s can be located here and are in limited supply, https://www.blackriflearms.com/AR-15-Firing-Pin-Retaining-Pin_p_189.html
Q: I have a BCA Rifle that has a lower for multi caliber and my upper is 762x39. Having alot of light strikes shooting steel cased ammo. Will this enhanced firing pin work for my rifle.
A: Yes this firing pin will help with light strikes, if you continue to have light strikes after installing then something else is going on with your rifle such as an improperly installed hammer spring.
Q: Will this work with and Anderson lower
A: Our AR-15 enhanced firing pin will work with a mil-spec AR-15 Anderson Lower or any AR-15 Mil-spec lower.
Q: I have a Bear creek side charging ar15 upper in 7.62x39 and wanted to know if this firing pin I'll work in it or not?
A: It should work just fine. We have customers with BCA rifles that purchase our enhanced firing pins with no issues.
Q: I'm building a ar47 currently and I've heard I either need to upgrade the firing pin or hammer spring to use steel case ammo with hard primers do I need 1 of those options or both I currentl have the wolf xp hammer spring
A: In this caliber, we have no issues with using a mil-spec hammer spring and an enhanced firing pin. In our 7.62x39 demo rifles we only run an enhanced firing pin, we have never needed the Wolf XP Hammer Spring as long as we use a mil-spec hammer spring. If a customer is running an Enhanced Firing Pin and a mil-spec hammer spring and still having issues we have pinpointed it to their hammer spring was installed incorrectly and we have them remove it and reinstall properly and then they have no issues.
Q: Will this firing pin work for a 6.5 grendel bolt?
A: No, it may have the potential to over penetrate and pierce primers. A 6.5 grendel only requires the standard AR-15 firing pin to shoot steel case ammunition. This firing pin was specifically made for the 7.62x39 caliber due to the extremely hardened primers to prevent slam fires in the SKS and AK47 rifle platforms.
Q: would this pin work on any caliber such as 5.56, 6.8spc or is it only for 7.62x39?
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56, 6.8 SPC calibers as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion to ensure positive ignition in the notorious hardened primers of the 7.62x39. Using this enhanced firing pin in a 5.56 or 6.8 SPC calibers could cause pierce primers. Standard firing will work on 5.56 or 6.8 SPC steel case ammunition with no issues as they don't have a hard primer like those found in the 7.62x39 or 5.45x39 calibers.
Q: I have a question I bought one of your firing pins installed it I also have the JP heavy hammer and spring set installed in my lower and I'm still getting like strikes out of wolf and other steel case ammo question I thought this was going to solve the problem anything you guys can do to help?
A: I sent you a private message as we are not showing any purchase of a enhanced firing pin, only Wolf XP Hammer Spring.
Q: Currently I’m running a Toolcraft 7.62x39 bolt which in its description state it comes with an enhanced firing pin. In your opinion are all “enhanced” pins the same, or are their differences between the two? Thanks
A: I'm not sure where Toolcraft buys their enhanced firing pins from, but no not all enhanced firing pins are the same. We have been doing our own enhanced firing pins for about 8 yrs now and have our own drawing/specs. Now when it comes to Tula and Golden Tiger Ammo one can still experience light strikes depending on the lot of ammo, we have seen some Tula or Golden Tiger where the primers were set to deep or was not crimped properly allowing the primer to move forward when fired. Due to this we highly recommend sticking to Wolf as we have not seen this issue with Wolf or Silver Bear Ammo.
Q: Will this firing pin also work for brass ammo
A: Yes it can. We have not heard or experienced any issues using our enhanced firing pin in this caliber for steel or brass case ammunition. We do state to always check the first few rounds of brass case when you first start shooting to ensure you are not piercing primers, but we have no experience it nor have any of our customers reported any issues.
Q: can the ar-15 7.62x39 enhanced firing pin be used in 5.56/.223 ars to midigate shooting steel .223 rounds? or is it just for the 7.62x39?
I'd like to install this in my 7.62x39 ar-15, as well as some of my .223 ars that i shoot steel cased ammo in.
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56 caliber as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion to ensure positive ignition in the notorious hardened primers of the 7.62x39. Using this enhanced firing pin in a 5.56 caliber could cause pierce primers. Standard firing will work on 5.56 steel case ammunition with no issues.
Q: Will this pin run in a Bear Creek Arsenal bolt for AR 7.62x39? I'm assuming yes but never hurts to get confirmation. Thanks
A: I just installed this firing pin in a BCA 762x39 upper with a standard mil-spec trigger spring and have had no problems shooting Russian ammo.
A: Our enhanced firing pins are designed to run in any R-15 mil-spec dimension bolt assemblies, so if BCA bolt assemblies are to mil-spec dimensions it will work just fine.
Q: AR-15 7.62x39 Enhanced Firing Pin
Is this firing pin a bit longer than a regular firing pin? I already ordered it and received your firing pin but just wondering if it is a bit longer. I was told that that’s what I need to avoid hard primer strikes without firing. Thanks.
A: If you ordered the enhanced firing pin it is what you need for steel case ammo. Per our description on products page: PLEASE NOTE: Overall Length is irrelevant to the performance of our enhanced firing pin. We designed our enhanced firing pin with multiple dimensional changes beyond overall length.
Q: How much is shipping for the firing Pin?
A: Shipping varies so there is not a set shipping cost, it varies by first class and Priority. You may add firing pin to cart then go to cart and put in your zip code for shipping cost to your zip code.
Q: I have an Anderson AR15 in 7.62x39. Will this pin work in my Anderson?
Q: I see this pin works well with the 762x39 steel cased ammo using the hard berdan primers, but what about the "good stuff" brass ammo with the boxer primers? I shoot both types of ammo and I don't want to have any pierced primers when shooting the softer primers. Thanks
A: We have never seen an issue with going from steel to brass; however, we still ask when you do go over to brass with the enhanced firing pin installed to check to see if you are experiencing any pierced primers for precaution.
Q: will this fit mgi bolt?
A: If MGI bolt will take an AR-15 firing pin then this enhanced firing pin should not have any compatibility issues.
Q: I bought a bulk amount of 223 Russian ammo that apparently have 5.45x39 hard primers in them. What do you recommend I use? The 545 or 762 enhanced firing pin? A.
A: The 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 enhanced firing pins are identical so either one will work with the hard primers.
Q: Will this firing pin fit on a Ruger mini 30?
A: No, this enhanced firing pin is designed for the AR-15 platform.
Q: will your 7.62 x 39 enhanced firing pin work with an ARP 6.5 Grendel upper? I am having unreliable ignition with 6.5g Wolf ammo and a Jewel trigger?
A: The enhanced firing pin will fit any mil-spec AR-15 bolt assembly, so will it will work in a 6.5 Grendel, we do highly recommend that if you use an enhanced firing pin with your 6.5 Grendel that you watch for pierced primers as it does allow for further penetration.
Q: I just installed the firing pin in my AR Olympic Arms bolt and noticed that there is a gap between the firing pin stop and the back end of the bolt. Is it safe to use like this?
A: Please do not use and contact Olympic Arms. When we dealt with them years ago they were shortening the tail end of their 7.62x39 bolts for use with standard firing pins. I'm concerned if they machine their bolts for standard firing in our enhanced firing pin may pierce primers.
Q: I recently purchased 2k rounds of Golden Tiger .223 . I am getting light strikes. Will the Enhanced 7.62 x39 firing pin work in a .223 AR 15 bolt?
A: Our enhanced firing pin will work in any AR-15 mil-spec bolt; however, we highly recommend that you check for pierced primers if not using in n x39 caliber rifle.
Q: Will this pin work in a 5.56 ar?
A: We do not recommend an enhanced firing pin for the 5.56 caliber as the enhanced firing pin allows for further protrusion and can cause pierce primers. Please stick with standard firing pin for the 5.56 ammunition.
Q: Will this fit a MK47 Mutant 7.62x39?
A: If it uses a mil-spec firing pin then this pin should work fine.
Q: Is this enhanced pin a few thousandths longer?
A: Without getting too technical, we designed it with a couple of other features that allow the best performance where we saw some functionality issues with other designs. Overall length is irrelevant to the performance of our enhanced firing pin. We designed our enhanced firing pin with multiple dimensional changes beyond overall length.
Q: Can this be used on standard 308 ammo?
A: No, the 7.62x39 is for the AR-15 platform of rifles and is not designed for use with the larger platform such as the .308/AR-10/7.62x51.
