Hi Guys. i am hoping someone here might be able to help me out with my Winchester Model 12 12ga firing pin.

I was just given my grandfather's Winchester Model 12 12ga shotgun. According to the serial number it appears to be made in 1927. When he gave it to me he said that it needed a new firing pin. The gun has been well used and he re-blued it previously so I decided to strip the gun down completely and give it a good clean. I am also in the process of refinishing the wood.

My issue is that I ordered a new firing pin from Numrich and it is slightly different than the one that was in the gun. The new firing pin is slightly longer than the old one and the shape of the groove toward the back of it is a different shape (v-shaped vs. straight up and down on top). I have searched all over the internet and I cannot find a picture of one that looks like the one that was in the gun. Every single picture that I see looks like the new one that I received from Numrich. All of the parts that were in the gun are stamped with the number "12".

When I put the new one in, it sticks out on both ends and the retractor doesn't seem to engage with it correctly. The pin seems to free float now where as the old one would not shift forward until the retractor was pushed down.

Is this a common issue? Do the older guns have a different firing pin? Here are a couple of pics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like a difference between gauges. https://www.midwestgunworks.com/winches ... g-pin.html
