    Broken Firing Pin

    My FP recently broke after a couple years of shooting squirrels & hogs and at least several hundred rounds thru it.
    I called KEL-TEC and their mailing a new FP at no cost.

    Thank God it didn’t break when I was w/I 5 yards of this guy!!

    I've heard of this a few times now. Think I might order a couple for spares. I wonder if CMR and PMR pins interchange...

    I was told by a Gunsmith that they are not interchangeable. I thought they would have been. The PMR is said to be flat, as opposed to round.

    The firing pins for the CMR and the PMR are not interchangeable. I have replace FPs in both. However, both are simple to replace.

    Broken Firing Pin


    We ran about 50 rounds thru it at the range with no issues!!
    Hats off to the Gunsmith that re-worked the pitted barrel in the receiver, that was causing it to mis-feed. It never ran rounds thru it this good, and way less finicky on the menu, it ate everything we put in it!!
