Ok a friend has a good shape BWK-92 and he wants to sell it. I am trying to research it and seems that a lot break firing pins and those are near impossible to find. It has a few mags so I'm not worried about that. Will a 5.45 or 223 bolt from a saiga or bulgy or romy etc fit? I know it would need headspaced but I just want to make sure if all else fails I could get another bolt and have it headspaced instead of end up searching for hard to find chicom parts.

I'd see first if any of those firing pins fit in the Chinese bolt. I don't know how different the 7.62 firing pin is, it may be able to be modified to work.

I get a pin could possibly be fitted but from my searching no other pins are the same that's why I'm asking if a complete bolt from another rifle will work. I know someone here has either fitted or swapped parts on a Chicom 223 or has built one up from parts.

Do you have any links to postings by people who have broken firing pins in their Norinco 84S, or .223 MAK-90, or NHM90, or BWK92? Being a big fan of the 84S series I would like to read about the problem and how those who broke a firing pin got their rifle running again.

The reason I ask is that I have an old 84S-1 that I have fired several thousand rounds through without any problems and want to find out what people did to break their firing pin.

Please do not read this wrong, I seriously want to find out what has you scared of an otherwise very reliable firearm not to mention the 84S was one of the most accurate of AK variants.

I have seen a few posts by searching google I firing pin issues. It seems most either just break and they don't list why and 2 of them sold off the rifles as parts because they couldn't find a firing pin. The other was getting pierced primers because the hole in the bolt is a little oversized and the firing pin sits back into the hole a little too far. It looks like I might be able to drop in a 223 galil firing pin. What worries me is I am sort of a Murphy's law kinda guy. If it can break it will. Why not have spare parts instead of a rifle without a firing pin. I know I could have one made but that's expensive. Its good to have spare parts for any gun and a firing pin and extractor are hard to find for a Chicom 223 as it didn't get imported in high numbers like the Mak90s did. It only took 2 seconds to find these so obviously its a common issue for these to crap out when least expected. Murphy always wins so extras are good.

So this is super old post but the galil pins do not fit! They are slightly too thick. I suppose you could maybe file one down to fit with a drill and a file etc.

Super old but I'm in for info.

I have a BWK-92 that needs a new firing pin. Any info on where to find one or what to mod to make one would be very helpful.
