    I also received A new replacement firing pin for my JHP that bent. The new one was shorter. It works fine. My guess is the reason the old one bent was because it was two long. The springs seem to be the same.

    Do you really need two identical threads on a bent firing pin?

    hell, i want to know why after only 30 rounds he took it apart in the first place. thats not dirty enough to even require a bore snake, just tap it and stick it back in the locker.

    somebody sure is grumpy today. and actually you clearly said you took it apart to clean it after 30 rounds, but thats ok, after only 30 rounds i honestly dont see how the pin bent AGAIN. not saying its not possible, but, unless you put something together wrong i really just dont see two pins on a new gun bending with barely any rounds thru it. hell, i changed my pin after 2000 rounds, and only because i thought i probably should, not because it was bent enough to truly need it. i think maybe you should post a picture or two of these ''bent'' pins so we can see what you are working with.
     

  12. Are you supposed to clean these things? :eek: I will take it apart and clean it when it quits running. Other than that I just shoot it.

    even the manual says not to take it apart for almost 500 rounds. i will run a bore snake thru mine after each day out, but mine has been apart ONCE and im pushing 4000 rounds thru it. just lube it once in awhile and it works flawlessly.

    Just toss it in the dishwasher and blast it with Remoil when done.

    Although I don't have quite that many rounds through any of mine, I have to agree with you that I had to get around 1,000 rounds in my JHP (has the highest round count of all my Hi Points) before I actually took the slide off. Used some synthetic safe blast cleaner, then oiled it down. Put it back together...good for another couple of years.
