Where can you purchase a firing pin for a 22 LR Springfield Jr Model 50 single shot?
Numrich Gunparts Corp lists them as sold out. Bob's doesn't list one either and and e-mail I sent to Bob's came back with an autoresponse that they would contact me in 24 hours. That was months ago and still no contact. The only way I have found is to purchase another Model 50 (difficult to find) as a parts gun. I have one on the way with the factory firing pin. I'm probably going to have either my gunsmith or a metal shop make two or 3 additional pins for me. Be careful what you buy however, I've seen these guns with handmade pins using pieces of cotter key and even nails to make a firing pin.
What is the origin of a black powder gun with a marking US Springfield on one end of the firing bolt and 1863 on the back side and is 1863 the year it was made or the model?
You have a JStevens Arms Co double barrel shotgun model 5100 with Springfield written on it also has a single trigger roughly when were these made?
The 5100 was made from 1931 to 1941. I didn't know a single trigger was available in the Springfield line. I own an old Springfield double barrel 20 gauge, serial number E67029. Is Springfield the actual model name, I see no reference anywhere to a model 5100. How do I verify what I have. Well, Apollo50, tell us what IS marked on it and maybe we can tell you something.
