    h&r handi repair

    ok so the time has come to replace the firing pin on the handi rifle has any one done one? im confident that i can do it but have only realy found info on doing the trigger tune. its a good article but doesnt realy go into pin replacement which by the look of it is just a case of removing 1 more pin. any one got any tips or things to be wary of thanks

    If its anything like a rossi you may want to make up some slave pins to hold everything together while assembleing it.
    I cut the butt off of a couple of drill bits to hold it all together then the actual pin pushes it out as you put it in.

    Whilst you have the action apart think about giving the sear a polish , and a spot of lube as you reassemble it.

    Easy to pull apart , bit tricky to get back together and have the firing pin function. Thats why you need the slave pins and a sense of humour . After the first ten times it will come to you ;-)
