    Firing pin retaining pin m4

    I'm looking for somewhere to get a replacement retaining pin for the firing pin on my m4. It's a norinco from marstar. Any suggestions on the best place to find one would be appreciated. Also what kind of price should I expect to pay?

    Well....they do mail order at Western Gun Parts. Give them the model and serial number, and see if they have it.

    I don't think the model or serial number matters, aren't they all the same?

    I've never seen a firing pin retaining pin that looked different than another one.

    They're pretty much just a cotter pin.

    This thread has me thinking now, since it's just a simple pin that holds the firing pin in place, I wonder if you could make one from gold. That would be a pretty vain way to pimp out your AR, and only you would know about it.

    I almost want to try it just as a test, because it's so small that even if it were gold it wouldn't cost that much.

    The point of failure would possibly be the heat (?) if the pins are supposed to be an alloy that can take the heated gas.

    WGP dont really like doing any orders less then 30$

    Questar lists the retaining pin at 2.99.

    Im sure any shop that sells a bit of AR15 parts will have spare pins..
