Range Officer Firing Pin Stop Replacement Empty Range Officer Firing Pin Stop Replacement

Post by ScottB 3/29/2024, 7:23 pm

My Range Officer has a cracked firing pin stop so I'm looking for recommendations on a drop-in replacement.  I'm not a gunsmith and don't think I could fit an oversized stop on my own -- but drop-in parts I can do.

I checked several places (EGW, Wilson Combat, Brownells) but I didn't see anything that looked like it would work.  Most of the stops listed as drop-in were rounded on the top and wouldn't work with the Range Officers adjustable sights.

The last time this happened Springfield sent me a replacement under warranty.  I could go that route again, but I'd rather have something that will last longer than a couple of seasons.

Thanks,

Scott

A fitted FPS will last longer.  Properly fit parts don’t break easily. A loose FPS will crack eventually.

It’s really easy to fit a FPS.  You just need some files and patience.  Or a few bucks for your local gunsmith.

This one from EGW is cut correctly.  Yes it will need fitting but as was said, files, stones and patience will make it happen.

Looks like a fitted stop is the way to go.  For $15 plus shipping I'm willing to give it a try.  Thanks for the feedback!

Get a couple so you can give yourself a little grace when fitting. Another good option is to have a gunsmith fit two or three at the same time—you never have to worry about it again.

If you are going to fit one , get the square one from EGW. Slightly radius the bottom and your are GTG. If you want a drop in call Springfield I am sure they have one.
