    The acme firing pin company



    So one of my buddies comes to me with these 2 firing pins, and says to me, "these are out of some hardware store brand side by side .410 shotgun, probably made in the 20's and I have owned it for the last 60 years, and for 50 of those 60 years the one firing pin has been broken......can you machine me up a pair of pins?"

    Out to the shop I went, grabbed a couple shoulder bolts, there good steel, hardened, but machinable, and went to work.....

    After I got done with this project, he then has the nerve to try to pay me......I told him "you just don't do friends that way" ok fine he says, and leaves a happy man.....came home from work the next day and found a N.O.S. bolt for my 03A3 in my mail box......

    What ya think of my handy work?

    Agreed... I have no idea what goes into doing that or how it is done, but I can still appreciate the skills it must take.

    I'm glad there are people smarter and more skilled than myself, or we'd all still be beating rocks together for most tasks.

    Wile E. Coyote, You know Him?????
    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
    Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
    And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

    Since this thread came back up, you could probably make some money turning out Sig P365 firing pins.
