Henning firing pin stuck forward

Recommended Posts

I just finished installing the Henning Gen 4 firing pin in my Stock II but it appears I messed up along the way.

The tip of the firing pin is stuck about an 1/8" through the breach face. I can push the pin further forward through the breach

face but can't push it rearward at all. Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Any advice on fixing the issue?

I tried searching but couldn't find anything.

Been there, done that.

The pin went past the firing pin block (FPB) and ROTATED, now the block is keeping it forward.

Remove the back plate.

Slightly depress the FPB, and rotate the pin until it will come out.

It's fiddly, but it will come.

Thank you johnbu! That took care of it

All stock springs except for a Wolff 13# hammer spring

Odd, the factory fp spring shouldn't have any issue.
I think he manually pushed it in too far, while trying to install it. Not a cycle issue, if I read OP correctly.

Ahhhhh, that would do it too.

Well reading comprehension was never a strong suit of mine. Lol
