    Guys i came across a handy exchange firing pin assembly for a Remington 700 (and Mauser 98) at the IWA.
    It allows you to carry a loaded rifle in complete safety and to use an after market trigger that has no provision for a safety catch.
    You cock the rifle by pushing the rear of the cocking piece forward which puts the firing pin under spring tension. If you pull the trigger the weapon will fire and you can cycle the action and reload and the rifle will be ready/cocked as normal. If you don't fire then you take up the pressure by pushing the cocking piece slightly forward and depress the decocking piece and ease springs. There are 2 versions, one allows you to lock the bolt closed,the other doesn't. It comes as a complete replacement firing pin assembly.

    How does it do with handling gas leaks from bad primers?

    works exactly the same for such things as original.
    These push to cock rifles are very popular over here and with a little adjustment to user drills the things are darn quick to operate and lets you carry a loaded rifle in absolute safety. Pete

    How does a guy go about getting them? I would like to get one going and give it a try before I buy a bunch.

    No Free meals these days buddy,.. but add up what a Win 70 type safety conversion for a Rem 700 costs, add a speed lock firing pin in to the deal, and you areapproaching the same with none of the features.. Pete

    Pete, essentially it controls the position of the spring's rear seat, allowing for a setting in one of two positions?

    Yes Brent, you could put it like that. untill you push the rear end in to "cock" the assembly, there is no forward spring tension on the firing pin. Pete
