    I have a Browning XT Unsingle and I would like to know when to replace the firing pins and what kind to buy? Should I go with the O.E. or go with a after market brand and tell me where to get the after market ones?

    If it is an unsingle why are you replacing pins?

    Just order a couple from Browning and replace them when you either begin to have a firing pin problem.

    When I perform a major service on a Browning Citori, I check all springs, replace firing pins, lower return spring, and mainsprings. These parts retail for under $50, and will keep your gun at 100% at all times. Occasionally, the lever return spring will become corroded and weak, and needs replacing.

    These models are among the best values in the tournament gun market.

    Why after market? In 37 years of use on my Broadway I've only had to replace one firing pin. I get the new ones direct from Browning.

    You just HAVE to get titanium firing pins and hammers. It'll speed up your lock time!

    What makes anyone think that Browning parts aren't vendor parts.
