16 and 20 Gauge Compatibilty
 
Hello,
I have a Zabala 16 gauge SxS Imported by Kassnar/Charles Daly.
I wanted to fix a broken firing pin that it has, but there are no 16 gauge firing pins! I was wondering if you can use a 20 gauge firing pin in the 16 gauge. I noticed some of the other parts are interchangeable. Here is a link to the parts list.

Any help would be appreciated!

Do you have one serviceable one?
Note: I can't tell much from the drawing so I'm kinda just guessing here. Is the firing pin the sort of thing that you could take to a machinist/gun smith and have made? Might be a bit easier. If you order an off sized pair, you may still need a machinist/gun smith anyway.
I would also recommend asking one of the moderators move this to the Gunsmithing forum, better target audience.

Its serviceable but only the left barrel works. I don't really have any good gunsmiths in my area, just the local pawn shop that does some work.

Zabala is still in business. Search Zabala shotgun parts. There are a number of sites which should help.
