Broken firing pin? All's lost. Might as well junk it. Out of the goodness of my heart, I'll take it off your hands so it won't clutter up your rack. I'll even pay shipping...such a nice guy I am. Cool

Seriously, you have a piece of history besides being a very interesting firearm. Do as the others have suggested and only let someone who really knows what they are doing work on it. It may cost a bit, but it is well worth it. Do keep us informed as to how you make out.

Of course my original offer still stands.... Wink

I would think anybody with a lathe could fashion one. Don't know where you'd get the pattern from, but I'd guess the broken one might be enough. Maybe a custom pistol builder? Those guys do some all out manufacturing.Here's a pistol guy that really does some interesting stuff.
