1911 Firing Pins

(1 customer review)


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , , , ,


Factory firing pins are often weak and subject to failure. These top quality firing pins are precision turned from heat-treated tool steel. Proper weight for positive ignition with heavy duty springs and any type primer. Usable with all 1911 type pistols including Colt Series 80 and 70. Springfield 38 Super and 9mm slides use the oversize diameter pin for heavy loads. At present we are the only manufacturer making the correct size pin for the Springfield 38 Super slides. All Ed Brown, Baer and newer Caspian slides use the 38 Super firing pin, Part #825. If you are unsure which pin you need, measure the diameter near the tip where the pin strikes the primer and compare to the listings. Ed Brown firing pins have a LIFETIME guarantee against breakage.

    0.065 for Sig Sauer 1911


    actually bent the stock firing pin in my Sig (don’t even recall how or when). Was surprised to see how narrow it was. Measured out at just under 0.065 inches. The Ed Brown pin has a much better tapered contour down to the final diameter. The stock pin had a long straight final diameter section, which is maybe one reason it bent? The Ed Brown pin also feels heavier, which should provide better inertia as well. Dropped right it. Highly recommended.
