    What's the life of a handgun firing pin?

    I just replaced a G19 aftermarket firing pin that broke last month. I replaced it with a factory Glock pin.

    When my M&P 9c firing pin broke, I sent it back to the factory. They replaced it under warranty and gave me a spare.

    Suarez Int. sells tool steel firing pins. Glock pins are MIM.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

    Speaking of which, anyone know when the gear store will have the option to add the Suarez firing pin to my cart again? I'm looking to order one to replace the broken factory firing pin on one of my Glocks.

    Same as above. Waiting on the S.I. firing pins for my G23 and G22. (Already have the S.I. Safety plungers and the spring cups.)

    Also S.I. Hardened tool-steel firing pins and safety plungers for the Glock 43? Please?

    And thank you.

    Firing pin prototypes are in the final phases of field testing.

    oh - if only someone made a high quality replacement firing pin.
