How dificult is it to replace a firing pin in a BT-99 Plus. What tools do I need and how would you direct me to do it?

Pulllit has the answer. Also, you will need an impact driver, if you don't already have one.

I have the tool but have never used it. I am betting it will not come out easily.
If you are not handy with tools I would not recommend trying because you will just bugger things up. Probably break the pins off too. I would use a drill press or even better, use a milling machine.

Johnny, I have replaced more BT-99 firing pins then you have fingers and toes. ALL bushings came out easy with a removal tool. Buy the tool on right which is for Brownings, the one on the left is a adjustable 2 pin for other European guns.

toolmaker, I hope you are right. After my experience removing a top lever dog screw, I assumed the firing pin bushing would be the same. Are you simply using a screwdriver handle?

John, you use a impact driver like the one shown, once you shock the bushing with the tools it can now be unscrewed with finger pressure.

The bushing on my BT99 actually came loose and started to back out. It caused a few problems as you might guess. Unless it has rusted in place, I doubt anything more than the impact tool shown above by TOOLMAKER251 would be required and you might not even need that.

John, that impact tool I posted is a over kill for what is really required on the BT-99 which is a 3/8" drive. It's the only one I have for any bolt or nut that needs to be shocked. If you can find a 1/4" drive one, that would be more then enough.
