    Seen over the last few months some interest on what needs to be pulled out of the reciever to replace the firing pins. This is not a tutorial but here's a picture of all the parts I've had to pull to get to the firing pin block.

    32 moving parts in a K-80 I believe. 4 in a KS-5, or KX-5.

    The fun part is putting it back together.

    I watched Earnest Marlette take my k80 apart this week and parts were going everywhere and he was just talking away like it was no big deal. I was amazed at how good he was at what he does.

    The last time I completely dismantled one I was told by a factory trained gunsmith that it couldn't be done that way. I show'd 'em but I was not allowed to try it again. I guess I flunked!!

    An ex-Browning factory guy told me that you risk breaking something if the hammer is tripped when yer replacing the pins with the hammers cocked. Don't know if he meant part of the gun or part of my hand.

    This does not bother me at all.

    This is like complaining the car owner, or the corner gas station guy, can't overhaul a 2008 Mercedes-Benz engine.

    I am a shooter, not a gunsmith, nor do I wish to be a gunsmith.

    Krieghoff "annuals" are recommended about every 25,000 to 50,000 firings. I've had many annuals done where the firing pins still appeared new.

    Only one time I had cratered firing pins and truly needed them replaced. That was in 1977, I believe, on a well used 32 I had bought second hand.

    It is all about reliability. No one yet exceeds Krieghoff reliability.....

    Here are the minimum number of parts required to change a firing pin on a K-80.
    The hammers have to be cocked and the safety set. If you get into trouble, put all the pieces in a box and send it to Phil. I am sure it will not be the first time he has received such a package! Art

    I used to sit and watch Giacomo tearing Perazzis down at the pigeon shoots at Malloy's. Amazing to watch he and Earnest in action.
