    Re: XCR Broken Firing Pins Poll

    Nice thread, I was wondering this myself. I remember I dug up a post a while back where Terra posted a list of parts you could order as a pretty sweet little repair kit. It was from years ago though. Have any of you guys gotten one of these recently? Do you have to go through Robertsons, or does Kermit carry a similar repair kit? I'm mostly concerned about the buffer and pin, but it seemed like a pretty nice list.

    Kermit has a kit configuration he put together based on experience. It includes the buffer and firing pin.

    I bought one from Kermit a while back and if my memory serves me right it was like $90 and had all sorts of stuff and just sits in my gear locker just encase if I ever need it.

    Do you guys have spare parts kits for your ARs? Just curious.

    Yuuup. Spare bolts primarily as it's the most common break point, but cotter pins, piston parts (for my piston ARs), firing pin, FCG with springs, different buffers, recoil springs, carriers, cam pins, etc. Alot of it is just redundancy.....I can't think of a time where I've seen a broken AR carrier....but I upgraded to different styles over time, so I have extras.

    Same with my Glocks and VZs.....not so much with my AKs....but I don't really shoot them much at this point, nor are they a primary go to rifle.

    Re: XCR Broken Firing Pins Poll

    Are you using the heavy hammer spring that's used for the hard primers? It might be hitting the pin too hard causing it to wedge like a plug in a whiskey barrel. Would it fire, probably not, not out of battery. You could pull a bullet off, dump the powder, then leave a loaded a primer in the brass. Release the bolt on it, see if it pops or pushes the pin back. I would take a good look at the inside of the bolt... check for evidence of wedging, like flaring of the firing pin hole from the inside.

    AR rifles don't break bolts under normal usage like carbines do so I only keep the small easy to loose parts on hand.

    I could hardly believe it. I will take a better look later when I clean up. It was also used with an unknown round count. I guess it is a chance to start with a fresh pin in each bolt?
