    Anyone have any experience replacing firing pins in a Remington 3200? I do have a service manual and I'm thinking of doing it myself.

    I have done it a couple of times without a problem. It is a little tedious but if you follow the service manual it can be done. I placed each part in a small plastic bag as it came out and labeled it as to location, right/left etc. Digital photos in various stages of disassembly would also be helpful although I didn't do that. Most of the action parts have to come out to get at the block that holds the firing pins.

    I see a field service manual for the 3200 on eBay for $9.99 + 3 dollars shipping. It's 12 pages, REV.382. Is this the manual you're talking about.

    Yes, that is the manual that I have. There is a listing on GunBroker also that I think is the same manual.

    Who makes or rebuilds the plunger assemblies. I know Laib probably sells them, but does he make them. I am afraid that some day he will run out or quit making them. I had a friend who rebuilt them, but he no long does that.
