WTB Benelli MP90/95 firing Pin

Post by jmdavis on Mon Jun 13, 2016 12:21 pm

My firing pin broke back in April and I have been having issues with light strikes since I replaced it with my spare. Those issues resulted in a double Alibi in the Rapid fire match of my last 900. I was not pleased. 

I called LGI today and went through the process of trouble shooting the issue. BUT, they are out of firing pins and don't expect to have any before Perry. 

Does anyone have a Benelli Firing pin that they would be willing to sell me? Contact me by PM or on this topic if you do. 


Thanks, 

Mike Davis

I hadn't but I struck out anyway. The parts guy claimed that the pistols were discontinued in the 90's. I pointed out that they were still on the Benelli.it website and he told me that they didn't have any parts for them. 

Ah well. 

I have a backup plan if I can't find one or make this one reliable.

JM,
I don't know flip about Benellis, but a recent firing pin break I had on another gun left behind a tiny metal chip that would have played hob with the new part.  Make sure you got all the swarf out when you replaced the part.

Thanks Don. I'm pretty sure that the firing pin channel  is clean. But it's a good thought

Did you try Larry's Guns in Maine? He might have spare parts

Larry's Guns is LGI. They don't expect any 22 firing pins much before Perry. 

I tried another new buffer last night and strikes are a little better but they are still light compared to the old firing pin or the one on my Pardini.

If the firing pin is made from flat stock, you may be able to stretch it by laying it flat on an anvil and hitting it in the center with a hammer.

It's sort of round stock with a flattened and rounded striking surface. We are going to try polishing the tip and see if that helps. 

It just seems that every year around Perry I have some sort of Benelli problem. Last year it was the composite trigger guard failing where it holds the sear reset pin in place. Don't get me wrong, I like the pistol and I shoot it pretty well. But I hate alibis and in particular eating rounds because of an alibi with an otherwise clean pistol.

Then again I am shooting more than a case of 22 per year, almost 2 cases, 36 league matches (18 600 point and 18 900's), over 100 live fire practice sessions, indoor sectionals, and then a few 2700's. My benelli gets a lot of use.

"Warning Will Rogers Warning" I did that to a Beretta firing pin years ago (young and dumb). It turns out that if you drop the slide and the pin is just a tad too long (oops) the pistol will go full auto on you. I had fun with it for a little while and then shortened it up a little. Probably not something that would happen to you but I believe in Murphy's law.

It is never a bad idea to give safety advice. Anyone who has shot 1911's in bullseye over many years has probably had one go full auto or double. That is why it is a good idea to limit the number of rounds in the magazine (2 is good) when test firing after working on the sear, hammer hooks, firing pin, et al. It is also a good idea when test firing a used semi-auto pistol (don't ask me how I know this).

Now you can play with the old one to try to get it working. If so, you'll have a good backup.
