    Hey all,

    I have been building this rifle up for a year now and have Bedded it, put in a Timney Trigger, New #6 contour Pac-Nor barrel and so on. The trigger is set at 1 pound and is pretty crisp. I was out shooting this weekend and noticed that when dry firing I would get a bunch of movement in the rifle when the firing pin dropped. I did the samething on my Rem700 with jewel trigger (set at 1 pound) and the rifle did not move when the firing pin dropped.

    Does anyone know where I can get lighter weight firing pins for the Howa Rifles?
