1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    My OEM firing pin has over 88,000 primers across it and never a fault.

    The only known BT-100 ignition issue is the hammer mainspring that needs to be replaced every 26 months. They cost $4 and I do the change-out myself in 10 minutes.

    Browning delivers parts in about 10 days. Always have two hammer springs on hand.

    Also, in all the years of service of my beloved BT-100, had to replace the top lever return spring one time.

    Keep a couple of springs on hand and your BT-100 is an enduring rock solid lifetime performer.

    Hope this helps and good luck

    Thanks everyone. My local gunsmith George Scavello had a titanium and a steel pin in stock. It was quite easy to install. Everything goes "BANG" once again. I'll be keeping the new steel pin as my back-up spare.

    I have never changed the firing pin spring! Maybe having a snap cap and releiving the spring pressure when casing the BT-100 has made a difference. I have replaced the top lever return spring several times. My BT-100 has served me well.

    Thanks again for the advice.

    TexasJohnO was correct!! Once I replaced the firing pin I still had some primer hits with no ignition until a second hit. I stretched the hammer spring for a test and it solved the problem. I just ordered two new hammer springs and a new top lever spring from Brownells. Thanks everyone. Bob
