Default My Cal. 38 Special

I own a .38 special and the problem with owning this as I have noticed is the firing pin will slip from time to time. Well one night my firing pin slept for good and I have a gun that basically has no purpose at all. Were Can I purchase a new firing pin for a .38 special. (If you don't know what im talking about the firing pin is the long pin like thing that twist in underneath the fire hole. Plz help thanks.

You might be a little more specific on your guns manufacturer and model to get the help you need. There are a lot of .38s out there.

Yeah, we know what a firing pin is. We just need to know a bit more about the gun. Make & Model will suffice.

Did it slip, or was it removed for safety reasons before you acquired the revolver?

I do have an extra FP for this OTs-38. I'll let you have it for $99 including shipping.



Hop over to the Introductions section and let us know a little about you.

I would love to own a OTs-38! At the very least, I would like to have a chance to shoot one just for the experience.
