    after 4 years and over 5000 rounds thru it, today it wouldnt fire. i heard the pin click, but it barely left a mark on the primer. i tore into it, to find a broken firing pin spring. Can anyone give me the phone # to call for a part? Its a 5 minute repair, so i dont wanna send it in for repair....

    thanks for the quik reply!
     
  3. Four years and all those rounds and it's only a quick spring replacement. I wonder how much all the other manufactures charge for a firing pin spring?
     
  4. You are more than welcome. Good to hear that all you need is a spring and you will be back in business.

    actually, only the last 3/16" broke off, so i DID stretch the spring and put it back together. At least it SHOULD fire. I wont use it unless i have to, but there's 2 9's in front of it in the case, plus my daily carry j-frame....

    Parts got here today (thursday) and are in already. Gotta reload ammo, and will shoot soon. It was a longer spring, and a new styled firing pin.
