Titanium Firing Pin

i've been reading that a titanium firing pin will reduce lock time. not that i'm to a point where this will make much difference for me, but every little bit helps. average price seems to be about 30 bucks. is it worth it?


i thought i'd bring up to see what anyone says, and maybe it'll help someone else out as well.

    I put the titanium pin and the tubbs spring in my .308 about 3 weeks ago.. my groups actually did shrink a bit on average. consisitient .3's down to the mid to high .2's seems to work... the spring and the pin are about $69 from Sinclair's

    Hey Ric,

    I've been considering making this upgrade, as well.

    Are you happy enough with the new pin/spring that you would do it again?

    Thanks.

    Titainium pins work, but you guys should know that if you run hot loads, or pierce a primer your pin will likely be a casualty, a little extra caution will help realize the benefits without the downside. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I use it in a .308 only shooting 2600 fps with a 167 grain bullet. Not as fast as she'll go, but best accuracy.

    I am without question happy I mad the upgrade. I have just started to break in my Ultra Mag. and I am sure I will do the same for it as well. In my opinion you need the sring and the pin to reall make a difference. Sinclairs sells them both. reduction of lock time by 38% or more ...I think...

    S1 I hear what your saying.. my smith also drills to "vent" holes in my bolt for just such and occasion. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
