Longevity of firing pins

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if any of the members, either with a Saiga-12, or especially a Saiga .410 , who have fired and is firing theirs on a regular  basis, can relate to what is the longest time they have on a Firing Pin?


I don't  know the quality, or what grade of the metal or harden steel  these firing pins are made of.

I do know the AK-47's which I have fired over the years, from 1969 to 2016 and have not experienced any breakage. Plus, I never dry-fire my arms, unless I have a cap into the chamber.

I have NEVER replaced a firing pin an any of my guns, and I've been a competitive shooter in SASS for over 20 years.
