    Go ahead and try it...
    There are sometimes several different firing pin types over the years. SO, make sure your replacement matches the one coming off before you get too excited.
    Also, "slave pins" will help you retain your sanity. I hate the transfer bar actions (have worn out the firing pins on 2). The rebounding hammer actions they turned out seem MUCH better. Good luck with this.

    OK, I'm starting to have flashbacks :D
    If you shoulder the shotgun and point it forward like you were going to shoot it, the pins would be drifted out from right to left-- when you look at the protruding part of the pins, you'll see the knurling on one end. Which will be the fat end.

    The pins keep the components of the trigger group together and located in the action. If you are feeling impatient or ham handed, utilize ANY excuse to postpone disassembly :anonymous:
