I was wondering if any one with a Citori has had a problem with the firing pins pitting or denting??? My citori has this problem and I was just wondering if it is common or not.
I don't think the pins should pit that early. Have you noticed any primer piercing? I was piercing primers on some cheap promo loads and have since switched to Remington gunclubs or the STS/nitro shells and no longer have a problem. What shells or primers are you using?claybuster21 said:Is there any chance you could defined used? I have probable shot close to 2,000 rounds in the last couple months and started to notice the pins pitting.
Maybe.... but now the gun goes bang everytime. I'd much rather be changing pins then dealing with misfires. But then that's me. Pins were under $30 IIRC.albanygun said:Maybe the longer Browning firing pins are causing a problem and maybe not.

Here is another that is more easily detected.
Each one of these is a source of extremely hot gasses around 10K psi. A very small cutting torch in effect, no wonder steel firing pins get eroded.
